 From "Jazz Anecdotes" by Bill Crow, Oxford University Press
 [A very cool book.  ISBN 0-19-505588-8  -psl]

    Some drummers have arrived at a job, opened their trap cases and discovered
they failed to pack the snare drums or the cymbals. ... One drummer piled his
cases on the scale at an airline counter in New York and said to the clerk,
"I'm flying to Los Angeles.  I want the square case to go to Denver and the two
round ones to go to Seattle."
    "I'm sorry, sir, but we can't do that."
    "Why not?  You did it last time!"
