That drives me crazy. Or they sling it over their shoulder like you would a jacket.
When I was a kid, I had no money for cases. I always dreaded coming back to the practice space if I hadn't accompanied my gear back after a show. Inevitably, the bass drum would have all 8 cymbals piled on top of the reso head with the rest of the drums stacked on top of that...various stands leaning on the drums finish. I can think of at least 3 separate shows I had to play with a torn snare reso head because I let my band members "help" me move gear.
