    *SWEET REVENGE*

    A Canadian 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
