Like putting together toys for your children, putting together furniture can be a painful experience. Learn more in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:36 Fast dialog: 15:56 Armand: Did you know that this nightstand required assembly when you bought it? Suzanne: The box said that it required simple assembly. I guess what’s simple to them isn’t simple to us. Armand: You can say that again. These instructions aren’t in English, there are no diagrams showing how the parts fit together, and we seem to be missing parts. I also question the quality. It’s mainly made of particleboard and plywood. Do you think we should return it? Suzanne: No, let’s just keep it and do the best we can. Armand: That’s hard to do when there seems to be a design flaw with the drawers. The pieces don’t fit together as they should. These nails are also bent and these screws look defective. Suzanne: It’s not looking good, is it? I also bought this because I thought everything could be assembled using Allen wrenches, but it looks like we’ll actually need a hammer, screwdriver, and maybe a drill. Armand: Well, let’s see what we can do. If we don’t have the right tools or parts, I have a solution. Suzanne: What? Armand: Duct tape. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
