United Breaks Guitars

Don't mess with musicians that have access to U-Tube.

A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United
Airlines. United apparently damaged his treasured Taylor guitar ($3500)
during a flight. Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay
for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar.
During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he
stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music
video for U-Tube exposing their lack of cooperation. The Manager
responded, "Good luck with that one, pal."

So he posted a retaliatory video on U-Tube. The video has since
received over 5.5 million hits. United Airlines contacted the musician
and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally
his response was, "Good luck with that one, pal."

Taylor Guitars sent the musician two new custom guitars in appreciation
for the product recognition from the video that has lead to a sharp
increase in orders.

ところで、食べる前にカレーを温めようと思ったが、コンロがないことに気づく。おっちょこちょいなんで(爆)。しようがないから、ホテル内のレストランでコンロを使わせてもらおうと思ったら、ゲストが来てしまいチャンスを逃す。で、みんな私のカレーもミーティングルームに持って行っちゃったから、こと既に遅し。「冷たいカレーなんて、みんな食べないよな〜(涙)」と思ってたら、みんな「これだれが作ったの?おいしい、このカレー」と言われ、びっくり(爆)。よかった。ちなみに、これは私の作でなく、おっとが作りました (爆)。

If that guy from San Onofre is Leonard Turner he just won more than
$58,000,000.00 on the CA Lottery. He must show up with proper ID to lottery headquarters in Santa Ana in person for his check. This is not a sting. Leonard is a bona-fide winner.

Moniter, I saw Mr.Turner's name. If he don't appear by 11/30/2009 he shall forfeit his winnings. Repeat, this is not a sting operation.
