so I called Harvey Norman after this phone call
             and speak to this dude and I’m like   I came
           into get this computer   oh who was the salesmen
           I’m like
hhhh
I can’t I honestly can’t remember he was like  
           oh if you can’t remember you’re gonna have to come
           into the store and give us all 
um
and if they go oh yeah Angus I’m gonna go
          yeah well you know that computer can you cancel it
          and by the way can you ring up GE finance and say
          put that umm the thousand dollars   oh just you
          know and just tell them that the sale just didn’t
um
go through  because GE credit seem to think
          that Harvey Norman can just make a phone call I
          don’t even need to go in there
yeah
and if he can’t do it I’m just gonna say look man
          can you just put me through to the manager cos I’m
          speaking with someone who can’t obviously get
          something done when I need it done
but you umm   why have they- why have they tak-
            why have they taken it off the card anyway
           
it’s not off the card   the GE finance people
            the paperwork hasn’t been sent through 
hm
and I’m like yeah that’s ‘cause I don’t- I didn’t
          get that I didn’t up getting   and they’re like we
          haven’t received anything from Harvey Norman
          I went   I didn’t get the computer that’s why
yeah
and they’re like well they need to call us and so
          every time I call them up   they’ve given me three
          different excuses on three different occasions
yeah
so I’m just going to ring them tomorrow and say
            oh look you know have you got this order and
          if he goes yep oh what’s your name blah well you
          know you guys have basically just given me the run
          around   I’ve been told three different things
          every time I’ve called up   I wanna speak to
          your manager now
hmmmm
           
I think it’s the other way around though to speak
          to the store manager
I   I cannot see how they can’t just
            I don’t know what’s going on   it’s really
          frustrating
it’s just  salespeople  so you still- you
          still get that um  money on that card though
well yeah they said they’ve given me finance for it
mmmm
  and if they haven’t I don’t care I’ll just
            I would just quit I’ll just close the card
            I didn’t use it so
um 
if they explain to me that it’s only for that
          particular computer  and for that particular
          purpose   that you got the finance   then
yep
sweet but when I go to the website that’s not what
          it says
you can use               um
it says use the Go Mastercard use the Go
          Mastercard here there everywhere bar use the bloody
          credit card here’s the names of the stores you can
          use it at
hhh here draw draw money out it out of an ATM and
          we’ll charge you thirty percent interest hhhh
twenty eight
hhhh
yeah man
           
yeah right
I was even prepared to do that man you know in
          order to establish a credit rating
yep
I thought just thought I could pay that back as
          well  
um
I mean it would come in handy ‘cause I plan to move
          soon  so yeah it would be a safety net
a thousand dollars
      which come at such a cool time
yeah hhhh
           
and I still haven’t been able to figure 
ya what
rent arrears   like your rent is in arrears
um
so can you pay up thought I did   thought I payed
         up   I don’t know what’s going on
          
excellent
there’s a   combined property rentals are the
         only people I’ve ever been   in the arrears with
         rent and I can’t figure it out why its happening
         Like   I always think I’m paying two weeks  
         I’ve pa- I’ve payed 
hm
I was late last week and I knew I was gonna get one
         but then I thought fortunately for me you know when
         I got paid three weeks   you know it’s like it’s
         just real bizarre
yeah hhh hh
till I get the payout or else I’m gonna beat-  
hhhh
beat you up
