CSS checked in with fans with a bulletin on their MySpace on Saturday (August 4), very angry about missing Lollapalooza yesterday and today because of United Airlines. Read on for the complete post.
Well, folks. Wanna read a story?
This is how things happened:
A couple of weeks ago we finished the first part of the crazy SUMMER FESTIVAL TOURS. So we were happy we were having some days off, yay! But we had to get our working visas for USA, so instead of going home, we went to Lisbon to get our visas issued. We stayed a couple of days in sunny Lisbon (yummy Lisbon), got the papers, rested for four days and came to US.
Yesterday we played our NYC gig, which by the way was very very very fun. The crew and a part of the band headed right after the show to Chicago with the bus (which didn’t have enough room for everybody) and the rest of us went stayed one more night in NYC. We had a flight to Chicago eleven in the morning of the next day (aka today).
So we woke up very early, got an expensive taxi to the LaGuardia airport, checked in almost three hours before the flight and GUESS WHAT? United Airlines oversold the flight and… and… they’re very sorry because there’s no other way for us to go to Chicago and play our gig! And they’re also VERY SORRY because our luggage went to Chicago. And they’re very sorry they ain’t paying for our hotels here in NYC today, our cab, our fu**ing dignity. And by the way, they were the ASSHOLEST people I ever saw in my life. They treated us like sh**. FU** UNITED AIRLINES BIG TIME. BIG TIME. ASSHOLES. ARSE-HOLES.
NOW WHERE’S MY FU**ING CASE? SH**.
We’re so sorry. And pissed.
Love. And hate.
