You can pay me with a check or credit card, but I prefer cash. Learn more about payment systems on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:33 Explanations: 4:06 Fast dialog: 18:28 Petra: Damn! That didn’t work either. Ken: What are you doing? Petra: I’m trying to pay for a new service I ordered, but the website won’t accept my credit card as payment. I even tried my debit card, but it’s been rejected, too. Ken: Why don’t you just write a check and mail it in? Petra: I don’t have any checks. In this day and age, I should be able to use one of the many electronic funds transfer options. Ken: What are going to do now? Petra: I might try sending a wire, but my bank charges a large fee for wires. Ken: How about signing up for direct deposit? Petra: If this were an ongoing service I would, but this is a one-time thing. Do you think I could try your credit card? Ken: I don’t know about that… Petra: All right, if you feel funny about doing that, then could you buy me a gift card for this website and then I can turn around and use the balance? Ken: That seems kind of involved. Would you pay me back in cash? Petra: Of course. I will write you an IOU right now and then go to the bank tomorrow. Ken: How about if you go to the bank now? I’ll even give you a ride. Petra: Is that really necessary? We don’t even know if it’s going to work. Ken: When it comes to money, I always say, better safe than sorry. 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.
