Early flight from Sydney to Adelaide. Unlike the Quantas flight from Melbourne to Canberra the Sydney Quantas ground person does not allow me to carry the guitar onto the plane, even though there is plenty of room in the overhead storage units.
“You can’t carry that guitar. Softcases only!”
“This case is no larger than any softcase.”
“Rules are rules.”
“The Quantas person in Melbourne let me carry it on.”
“Give me the guitar or stay here.”
Yes, I remember that sentiment from history class. We all know what happens when people follow rules rather than thinking for themselves. Mountains and Rivers are destroyed, but the State survives.
HERE are some photos of the case. All of those marks were made by the Quantas baggage handlers in Sydney or Adelaide.
