Discussion between a Husband and Wife about #DearGerry

Sitting at the dining room table, discussing Harvey Norman

Wife – “Did you hear about the fuss Harvey Norman is making about internet purchases?”
Husband “Yeah, he just wants everyone to pay GST.”
Wife – “Even if people pay GST, it’s still cheaper than buying on-shore mostly. His real argument is no-one should buy off-shore”
Husband – “No, that’s not what he wants, he just wants people to pay GST”
Wife – “No, he doesn’t want people to buy anything offshore, even if they do pay GST. He’s claims that Australian Jobs are being lost, because people are buying off shore.”
Husband – “No, he just wants people to pay GST”
Wife – “Even with the GST, it’s cheaper for me to bypass the likes of Harvey Norman and buy offshore. If Harvey Norman was so worried about Australian Jobs, he’d stock mostly Australian Made products. Instead he sources as much product as possible from overseas, as cheap as possible. Doing exactly what I’m doing, only difference is he has buying power, I have none.”
Husband – “Oh”
