[00:00:00] VOICEOVER: [Theme Song]

[00:00:30] CHELSEY DONN: Hi.

[00:00:32] TREY GERRALD: Well, hello. Hello listeners. Welcome to Review That Review. We are the podcast dedicated to reviewing.

[00:00:38] CHELSEY DONN: Reviews! We're just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we rate and review those hilarious scaping and sometimes suspicious online reviews.

[00:00:50] TREY GERRALD: That's Chelsey Donn!

[00:00:52] CHELSEY DONN: And that's Trey Gerrald.

[00:00:55] TREY GERRALD: And together we are:

[00:00:57] VOICEOVER: the Review Queens.

[00:01:01] TREY GERRALD: And if you want to support the show while getting bonus and exclusive content, including a members only after show podcast, visit our Patreon page at Chelsey girl. How in the world is your first week , of the new year goin, diva?

[00:01:20] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my goodness. I gotta say, you know, when you have those weeks, when it's like, you just feel behind, already on like Monday, you know what I'm talking about? That's what I feel like. I feel like I'm just like running out of time. Like what's happening like times starting and concluding all at once! New year. I don't know. It just feels like there's a lot in my brain that I need to account for. Feeling a little overwhelmed, but you know, getting through it, how's your week going?

[00:01:49] TREY GERRALD: It's interesting. Maybe there's something in the air because I had to make a, um, an appointment for hunter at the vet. the location is literally a block from our house, but they have a 24 hour emergency vet that's in a different town. So I like made an appointment. Accidentally for the one that's half an hour away. And then I like tried to change it. You can't change it online. So then you have to call and then no one answered. So then someone finally called me back and they were like, we can't make appointments for that other location, but I didn't want to cancel this without speaking with you, in case it's like time sensitive. And I was like, no, no, no, go ahead and cancel it. So then I had to like call the actual location. That's a block from my house and they're going to see him tomorrow morning. So at like-

[00:02:28] CHELSEY DONN: and that's just one item on the to-do list. It turns into like half the day and exactly Trey that's exactly what I'm feeling is like each item on my to-do list that should take two seconds is for some reason taking half the day, you know?

[00:02:42] TREY GERRALD: And like I got an email multiple times. It's like this appointment is coming up. But then there's no like link to like click and be done. So I thought that was already complicated. And then they're like, oh, we can't even like help you call this other number anyway. It's totally fine.

[00:02:57] CHELSEY DONN: This is all feeling like very complainy.

[00:02:59] TREY GERRALD: You know, I think we're launching in, although I have a very specific complaint to share,

[00:03:04] CHELSEY DONN: no, I have one as well, but I'm just saying we're really, we usually do that, like twist of like now that we've been so optimistic about how our new year's resolutions are going, let's complain, but you know, it's okay. Like sometimes it's a kvetcher day.

[00:03:19] TREY GERRALD: Well, let me, you just teed me up because

[00:03:21] Lodge A Complaint!

[00:03:21] TREY GERRALD: Chelsey, is there anything that you would like to

[00:03:23] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint?

[00:03:25] TREY GERRALD: about?

[00:03:26] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, there is Trey. So this complaint It's just like, it seems very obvious, like so obvious that it was like, have we talked about this already? So, you know, when someone says to you like, oh Trey, you look tired.

[00:03:40] TREY GERRALD: Oh, God,

[00:03:41] CHELSEY DONN: Mmm-hmmm. Why are we still doing that? Like, it's become such a part of pop culture of everything that we all know what it means. When you tell someone they look tired, we know that you're telling them them, that they look like crap. And I just think we need to put an end to this once. And for, I'm not going to say the person that asked me if I was tired today because it's unimportant, but somebody did ask me if I was tired today, which yeah, I am tired a little bit.

[00:04:07] CHELSEY DONN: However, I think there's better ways of addressing this concern. why can't you say, Hey, what's going on? Or, you know, it seems like maybe you have a lot on your plate or, you know, I'm feeling really overwhelmed right now. How are you feeling with life? I don't know. There's like other ways of getting to the core of the issue if you are in fact concerned about my sleep schedule, maybe a part of me felt good today and now you're telling me I look tired and now I know I look haggared and bad. So I'm going to complain about it, Trey.

[00:04:39] TREY GERRALD: Yes. I have encountered that as well. It isn't a question. Are you feeling tired? It's declaring that you appear a certain way. So then how do you respond to, I actually have a very funny, well, okay. This is making me think of eight different things, but before I forget this, I once was in Key West in the pool and someone was visiting Key West that's friends with David from a long time ago. So we're, kibbutzing in the pool talking whatever. And he talks about his sister and he's Jewish and his sister's name was like, I who knows. Anyway-

[00:05:09] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:05:10] TREY GERRALD: What I was saying was, oh, like usually Jews name after someone who's who has lived. And so we repeat a lot of names and so, so I was just like, oh, that doesn't sound like a Jewish name. And he said, okay. And I thought it was like the most brilliant response because it's like, I don't have to, oh, you look tired. Okay.

[00:05:32] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:05:33] TREY GERRALD: I don't have to be a responsible for explaining it. I don't have to be responsible for addressing anything that you just said. It also was a little bit blunt and direct to be like, okay. Anyway,
