United Breaks Guitars.
A musician traveled with his guitar and United Airlines busted it. Bad. When he requested they fix it, they requested he fuck off.
He wrote this song, released it on Monday and today it's a YouTube hit. United is paying attention, if still not paying for his guitar.
Let's hope for a happy ending to this. If you're a guitar player you know how much your instrument means to you. It's more than just wood and wire, a good guitar has heart. I know my old Martin does. I'd be near homicidal if I saw tarmac jockeys tossing it around like a sackful of dirty laundry.
So fuck United. I'll think twice before I book a flight with this airline again.
