: Well let's see.
: A bassist here in NYC (who shall remain nameless) was getting ready to fly out to a gig, brought his bass (in the fiberglass flight case) out to the curb in front of his apartment and then went back inside to grab his bags to come out an wait for his car service pick up.
: But in the short interim (it being early in the morning) the garbage collectors came by and he came out of his front to th elovely sight of the bass case being shoved into the back of the truck's compactor.
ED:The DB in the garbage truck sounds like a total fabrication-I do not believe it. I was born and raised in Manhattan(were you? You sound like an out-of-towner to me)and I can tell you NYC Sanit men are 1}not stupid or callous(like some musicians I can think of) 2}D'ont pick-up "Bulk items" on regular rounds,and 3}Do not place bulk items in the compactor.
