[00:00:00] TREY GERRALD: Okay, this is going to go into so many different directions.

[00:00:03] CHELSEY DONN: Let's do it.

[00:00:04] TREY GERRALD: Do you think that sick children warrant compassion?

[00:00:07] CHELSEY DONN: I do.

[00:00:09] TREY GERRALD: How often do you think fucking children get sick, Chelsey?

Baby, it's time to Review That Review!


[00:00:42] CHELSEY DONN: Hello. Hey. And

[00:00:47] TREY GERRALD: everyone, to Review That Review. We are the podcast that is dedicated to reviewing.

[00:00:56] That is Chelsey Donn!

[00:01:00] CHELSEY DONN: Gerald.

[00:01:01] TREY GERRALD: can just call us

[00:01:03] VOICEOVER: The Review Queens,

[00:01:07] CHELSEY DONN: But Trey, it's your turn this week. Would you like to?

[00:01:12] VOICEOVER: Larger complaint,

[00:01:13] TREY GERRALD: Yes, Queen. Yes, Queen! I actually have a complaint that is so annoying and I know you're going to be able to cooperate. Now, as someone who is a Mac user, Chelsey, do you know that experience when it's like, your computer will auto install updates, right? Okay, so you're like, great, I will do that. It also happens with system, operating system updates 

[00:01:38] CHELSEY DONN: on the 

[00:01:38] TREY GERRALD: iPad or on your phone.

[00:01:40] And it's like, this will update between the hours.

[00:01:45] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:01:46] TREY GERRALD: Okay, so you say like, yes, then it still requires you to enter your fucking password. So then you fucking do the password after it's been installed. And then it gives you nine more minutes to complete the update. Are you fucking kidding me, Mr. Apple? Are you fucking kidding me, Steve Jobs?

[00:02:11] Are you out of your goddamn mind? Gord, why are you doing an auto update that I've already said yes to, and then, in order to actually complete the process, I have to then do my fingerprint, I have to do my face ID, I have to do my password, before you can complete the process that I've already said yes to?

[00:02:34] Why? Why? W H Y, I Y, I Y, it's an I Y, lowercase I, Y, and then why is it taking that long? I have things to do on my computer, I have applications that I have running always, so when I have closed them all with that little in between, I've prepared for you to do your stupid update on what, I don't, it's always like, we've made bug improvements on Apple, Microsoft, Word, how I don't use Word, and when I do, the update doesn't matter to me, but you have made me, so, Close everything, I gotta get everything all ready, I know that I have to use this computer because I have a Zoom call in the morning, so let me get that all set up and ready, and then I come down, pushing my little time limits here because I'm sleepyface, I gotta get ready, and then my computer, it's that little stupid generic background with the red and the green stripes, go to hell, that's not the one I've chosen, so I know we're not ready, then you say, Password, so then I put in my stupid password and then you give me a black screen with the little Apple logo with the little progress and it says, Estimated update time, 9, 13, 18 minutes?

[00:03:56] Are you out of your fucking mind, Steve Jobs? Why? Why? Why did you not do this while I was sleeping? You mean to tell me that my computer sat like that? It sat like that for another approval? Hours while I snoozed upstairs? Are you kidding me? Why? Why didn't you just finish the download? Are you kidding me?

[00:04:20] You restarted and you sat, paused in the middle of production? I I I I I I am enraged.

[00:04:28] CHELSEY DONN: Wow, I hear it, I hear it in your voice, Trey.

[00:04:32] TREY GERRALD: Any thoughts?

[00:04:32] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, I mean, this happens to me a lot where it'll say like, we're gonna update overnight and then the next morning it'll be like, sorry, failed to update

[00:04:40] and I'm like, why? What did I do wrong? So I have that issue. I also hate when it's like, like you were saying, it'll be like nine minutes and then like it pops up to like 12 minutes,

[00:04:51] 14 minutes and you're like, how many hours, it'll say one minute and then like five minutes later, it's still on one minute and you're like, don't insult me with.

[00:05:00] Your inaccurate time

[00:05:01] frame here. It's really like anything when you go on your computer and you just like can't use it right away. It's very annoying. My, this computer that Trey and I record on that is like now exclusively for podcast purposes is, has been like a lemon since day one. Like every other time I open it, I need to like finagle her, restart her.

[00:05:22] It's just annoying. It's annoying that I can't just get up, go.

[00:05:26] TREY GERRALD: yeah, my feelings are hurt that you used this one for us.

[00:05:29] CHELSEY DONN: Babe, this was a brand new computer when we started this podcast.

[00:05:33] TREY GERRALD: Is that true?

[00:05:34] CHELSEY DONN: It's true.

[00:05:35] TREY GERRALD: No, that's crazy.

[00:05:36] CHELSEY DONN: I bought this for us.

[00:05:38] TREY GERRALD: But in this conversation of like, how long it takes, it also occurs to me anytime I get a new iPhone, anytime I like, am looking for like, it's time to get a new computer, I'm like, well, I want as much memory in gigabytes as possible, but I know that it's going to take days to convert everything from the old to the 

[00:05:56] CHELSEY DONN: I know. 

[00:05:57] TREY GERRALD: we're getting out of, I'm such a virtual hoarder. It's insane. 

[00:06:00] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, same. 

[00:06:01] TREY GERRALD: that's my complaint.

[00:06:02] CHELSEY DONN: I hear you, Trey.

[00:06:03] TREY GERRALD: I'm so over it. Steve? People that work for Steve? 

[00:06:07] CHELSEY DONN: Steve's no longer alive. Do we still blame Steve?

[00:06:11] TREY GERRALD: Mmm, yeah.

[00:06:14] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. Okay.

[00:06:15] TREY GERRALD: Alright, well, I need to shake that off.

[00:06:18] CHELSEY DONN: I've added it to the ledger. That's for sure,

[00:06:20] Trey. It's not in process. It's been officially added. It's

[00:06:23] done. You're welcome. You're welcome. 

[00:06:27] TREY GERRALD: You wanna jump into a review?

[00:06:29] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god, please. Let's do it.

[00:06:33] VOICEOVER: Review That Review,

[00:06:37] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trusty Review Queens. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:06:44] TREY GERRALD: We're gonna read you a review. We're gonna break it down together. We're then gonna rate the impact of that review on a scale going from zero, This is a regal process that we call,

[00:06:55] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kevetch,

[00:06:57] TREY GERRALD: And this week is you, Chelsey Goose, What'd you get? What'd you get? What'd you get? What'd you get? 

[00:07:01] CHELSEY DONN: All right, went back to Yelp for this week. I have a one star Yelp review for Blow and Glow, which is a blow dry service, sort of similar to a dry bar, and Here I can read a little bit about it. Blown Glow is a full service salon specializing in hairstyles, updos, makeup, color, haircuts, hair extensions, eyelash extensions, eyebrow shaping, and face threading.

[00:07:25] Give us a call today for bookings, rates, and availability. You can also contact us on social media and book online. This is a one star review. I might need a little help with the name. A N A H

[00:07:39] I T, Anna Hit, 

[00:07:45] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, we'll say Anna.

[00:07:46] CHELSEY DONN: oh say Anna,

[00:07:47] Anna 

[00:07:48] TREY GERRALD: can we say, hit

[00:07:49] CHELSEY DONN: Hit, Anna Hit G, Anna Heat G, Alright, this is the One Star Review,

[00:07:56] let's get into it. We all know every store has their own policies,

[00:08:02] TREY GERRALD: Mm hmm.

[00:08:02] CHELSEY DONN: When something is final sale, they usually tell you at the store, right?

[00:08:06] TREY GERRALD: Mm 

[00:08:07] CHELSEY DONN: You would think that they would tell you deposits are non refundable. 

[00:08:12] TREY GERRALD: hmm. 

[00:08:15] CHELSEY DONN: a week before my appointment.

[00:08:18] The receptionist told me we do not return deposits. She gave me a rude answer instead of apologizing. Well, that's how deposits work.

[00:08:29] Sorry, no, ma'am. That's not how they have worked for me in the past. It's not a universal policy. You need to tell your customers. Usually, salons have a grace period and they give your money back.

[00:08:46] What if I have COVID? They are okay with me going so I don't lose my deposit. Instead of helping me out,

[00:08:54] they didn't give me any salon credit or help me change my appointment to another day. Anyways, I was not pleased, but I still showed up to my appointment. The stylist was running behind, so they asked me to wait 15 minutes the most.

[00:09:12] I wait outside in my car because there was no single chair available to

[00:09:16] sit on, 

[00:09:17] TREY GERRALD: I know this guy,

[00:09:19] CHELSEY DONN: 15 minutes pass and I come see this girl's like halfway done, Like don't lie, if it's 30 minutes,

[00:09:25] tell me, I have a life too, I'm not waiting for you, Instead of apologizing, making me feel comfortable, they made me feel like an idiot, They didn't give my refund, expected me to be fine with that, but if they're super late, they expected me to wait and be okay with it? FYI, I wanted to originally cancel my appointment because my kids were sick. Like, have some compassion, bro, especially because I was not warned it was non refundable. If it was like 25, I wouldn't care, but 100? Come on! Whatever, I walked out because I didn't want to spend another second there. I don't care if I lost 500 worth of deposit, I would've walked out then too.

[00:10:15] I never, ever write Yelp reviews. This is my first one, but I couldn't sleep until I vented. 

[00:10:28] TREY GERRALD: Oh, hit.

[00:10:29] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, hit. Oh, and a hit. Gee,

[00:10:32] TREY GERRALD: Okay, this is gonna go into so many different directions.

[00:10:35] CHELSEY DONN: let's do it.

[00:10:36] TREY GERRALD: Do you think that sick children warrant compassion?

[00:10:39] CHELSEY DONN: I do.

[00:10:41] TREY GERRALD: How often do you think fucking children get sick, Chelsey?

[00:10:44] CHELSEY DONN: Often, but at the same time, it's like if you're a caregiver and your kids are sick and also like a week in advance,

[00:10:52] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. 

[00:10:53] CHELSEY DONN: right? 

[00:10:54] TREY GERRALD: So, okay, so I also was sort of like, I'm not sure because they talk about COVID and then later they're like, oh, by the way, the reason was my kids were sick. So I wonder what the kids had that would last a week. 

[00:11:05] CHELSEY DONN: Maybe The kids had COVID, maybe the kids had the flu,

[00:11:08] TREY GERRALD: You don't think that HIT would have mentioned that it was COVID for their children?

[00:11:12] I feel like they would 

[00:11:13] CHELSEY DONN: They probably would have, but either way, like, I think the ultimate point here, which, like, maybe it was unnecessary for them to even bring up the kids, I think maybe that's the point, but a week in advance is plenty of time to warrant getting a deposit back, not to mention, I don't think I've ever heard of having to put a deposit down.

[00:11:34] TREY GERRALD: So that was my next question because I've never been to a blowout place. Are deposits generally attached to appointments for like blowouts? I don't think so.

[00:11:41] CHELSEY DONN: I've never seen that before. I could maybe see it's like put your credit card on file because if you're a no show, Then you're gonna get charged like a hundred bucks. I don't like I can make like it in the dry bar. I want to say like I have my credit card in the app.

[00:11:58] So I'm sure in the language somewhere It's like if you're just a no show like you're probably gonna get charged some a no show fee, but a deposit I've never heard of that for a salon,

[00:12:09] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. I also feel like there's a couple of things here, but I feel like a glaring omission. So much of the communication in this review is about the receptionist, and I want to know who the receptionist is, because I'm assuming the receptionist is the person that's saying, oh, they're running late, so let's wait 15 minutes.

[00:12:28] Also, I feel like the receptionist is the scheduler, so that's the person that is like, well, that's our policy. And you're like, well, that wasn't communicated. Also, I'm very confused. Did they cancel the original and were charged because they say they showed up?

[00:12:44] CHELSEY DONN: No, because they called to say I'd like to cancel my appointment and they were like, no, we, it's a deposit, like, you don't get your deposit back. And so then they were like, okay, I

[00:12:54] guess I'll keep my appointment then because like, I'm not going to lose 100 deposit. And then they went to the appointment that they didn't want to go to in the first place.

[00:13:03] And then they were forced to wait. And then eventually, at a certain point, they were like, fuck this place. I'm like, so over it.

[00:13:08] TREY GERRALD: It is interesting to me though, like the double standard because it is, it's like the doctor's office. It's like, show up at your appointment time, do not be late, 

[00:13:16] CHELSEY DONN: right, 

[00:13:17] TREY GERRALD: And then you have to be the one to absorb how they're always running behind.

[00:13:21] CHELSEY DONN: That's right.

[00:13:22] Yeah, 

[00:13:23] TREY GERRALD: I see how that is more acceptable for a doctor because of emergencies and less acceptable for a blowout.

[00:13:29] CHELSEY DONN: Especially a blowout at a place that has this ridiculous policy.

[00:13:33] TREY GERRALD: Well, that's the other thing, though, is like, if you're choosing to go to blow and glow, I recognize like the fine print you want to be told or you want to know but if it's a policy of the store complain about it and move on like and that's what they're doing they couldn't sleep until they did that so like I hear you 

[00:13:52] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, but I think it's hugely useful, Trey.

[00:13:55] I mean, yeah

[00:13:57] like I get it, like complain and move on and it sounds like that's what they're doing, but at the same time, I'm so glad I read this review because I will never go to this place. I can totally see How people could get finagled into this situation.

[00:14:12] Like it's just our policy to take a credit card for a deposit. Blow out. Oh yeah. Okay. Like, Oh, maybe that's a little weird, but sure. Oh wait, I'm going to be charged even though it's a week before. I mean, like, that's crazy.

[00:14:23] TREY GERRALD: also how much are blowouts why is the deposit 100

[00:14:28] CHELSEY DONN: was thinking the same thing. Like that sounds like more than the cost of the blowout.

[00:14:33] TREY GERRALD: I'm just I'm wondering is all of the upset at the reception person you

[00:14:38] CHELSEY DONN: Does it matter?

[00:14:40] TREY GERRALD: Well, even if it is like a policy that wasn't communicated, that's a separate issue, but I feel like they made me feel like this, and like instead of taking care of me, like so much of that I feel like can be buffered out based on the personnel, so that's why I would like to know the reception person, unless all receptionists at this place are just cunts.

[00:15:00] CHELSEY DONN: Right, I hear you because it's like obviously it's not a review about like and then they butchered my hair

[00:15:06] Which is like usually what you're expecting to hear from one of these reviews

[00:15:11] TREY GERRALD: all scheduling.

[00:15:12] CHELSEY DONN: It's all scheduling, but as Tabitha Coffey would say, you know,

[00:15:16] like 

[00:15:17] TREY GERRALD: the face of the company. 

[00:15:18] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah,

[00:15:19] How even more annoying for the stylist at this place if you are

[00:15:23] misrepresenting the company.

[00:15:25] It doesn't really matter. Either way, the person is gonna leave. The person's gonna be pissed. The person's gonna go on Yelp and write a one star review because they can't sleep until they do so. I think that the receptionist and the customer service is an important part of a hair or any like, a really any, any experience

[00:15:44] TREY GERRALD: Me too. That's why I wish that HIT had communicated the personnel.

[00:15:48] CHELSEY DONN: like giving them the like said like Ashley did this.

[00:15:52] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, why not? I think that's useful.

[00:15:54] CHELSEY DONN: like called out the person?

[00:15:56] TREY GERRALD: Yeah,

[00:15:57] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:15:58] TREY GERRALD: I think it's unique. I think it's valuable. I think it's having an impact on me. I just want to truthful shady here. Do you think that Any of the being put outness and the audacity is having an impact on the review that we're reading because it comes across as truthful to me, but I'm wondering if there could be any infused shade anywhere.

[00:16:20] CHELSEY DONN: I don't, I honestly don't really

[00:16:22] think so. Just because I think that this is like an experience that I can see someone having and then

[00:16:27] want it like this is what Yelp is for.

[00:16:29] If not for Yelp, how would you communicate this? Like, I think it's important for the people to know.

[00:16:34] TREY GERRALD: And I imagine that Hit is not the only person that was unaware. So that makes me think that it might be common to be like, 

[00:16:43] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, would you ever? Would you ever assume that you put a deposit down for something like, we're not talking about a wedding, I mean, you know, like, would you ever think that you would put a deposit down for

[00:16:52] something like this at all,

[00:16:55] let alone that you wouldn't be able to cancel and get a deposit, like, and also, I think their point is interesting when they said, they didn't ask me if I wanted to reschedule,

[00:17:05] TREY GERRALD: right, I wrote that down 

[00:17:06] CHELSEY DONN: they didn't say like, no problem if you can't come in, why don't we reschedule you and we'll apply the deposit to that day, like,

[00:17:13] Any of the things that, like, you would normally associate with the deposit for an exchange like this

[00:17:18] did not happen. So that's extremely useful information for me to know.

[00:17:23] TREY GERRALD: Were you entertained here? Was it humorous? Definitely not humorous, 

[00:17:27] CHELSEY DONN: Mmm, I'm angry. I don't think it was humorous. I think it was, like, from the heart. Truthful. Annoyed.

[00:17:34] TREY GERRALD: I think I could crown hit, how are you feeling?

[00:17:36] CHELSEY DONN: I think I can crown Hit. Let's do it.

[00:17:38] TREY GERRALD: So Chelsey and I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair, not influence each other, we will simultaneously reveal our ratings.

[00:17:48] VOICEOVER: The Queens are tabulating, Total Score,

[00:17:56] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, I'm holding up four crowns. Trey's holding up four and a half crowns. Trey, you go first. Why four and a half crowns? For Hit.

[00:18:04] TREY GERRALD: I think it's a very convincing review. And as you said, this is what Yelp is for. Without disclosing too much info, I work for a company with pretty rigorous policies that many people construe as

[00:18:23] CHELSEY DONN: Hmm.

[00:18:23] TREY GERRALD: So, I think that's why I'm reacting so hardcore to this review, because as someone in my workplace who has to deal with people's upset around policies multiple times in a day of work, as a southerner, I know to just let me be good cop and I'll call in someone that's above my pay scale to have to be the bad cop, and, you know, honey, gets more than vinegar

[00:18:50] CHELSEY DONN: Sure.

[00:18:51] TREY GERRALD: so that's why i wish they had communicated who the people were that were so gross but i still did four and a half because i don't think that's like You know, that's my preference here.

[00:19:01] And I recognize you just feel swindled. And if they aren't being forthcoming, if we're taking hit at their word that there wasn't like a fine print or an asterisk somewhere or the phrase non refundable deposit, then that's fucking shady boots, the house down mama, Mariah Carey. So four and a half, because it's pretty strong.

[00:19:21] And I think there's going to have to be a response company wise. Otherwise, like, I ain't coming. Bitch, I got a blow dryer at home, okay? Chelsey, why did you say four?

[00:19:34] CHELSEY DONN: said four, I don't know if I should really be blaming this on Hit, but only because we're really only getting one side of the picture. We're not getting the full view of the scope of like, what is the service? Because we did leave before we actually got the service. So like if I had had this story and Hit had also gotten the haircut or the blowout and also gave me information, I think this would probably be nearly a Review Queen, but I think there's a lot of really good information here. There's a cautionary tale. I would know 1000 percent if I was going to call this place. The first thing I would ask is like, is this deposit refundable? Am I going to have a problem? Do you run late? Like just like

[00:20:10] questions that I wouldn't have necessarily thought I need to ask before reading this review.

[00:20:15] I now know I need to come armed with. So I think that's pretty valuable.

[00:20:20] So that was why I went with four crowns. Big impact for me. Yeah.

[00:20:23] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, heard that.

[00:20:25] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:20:26] TREY GERRALD: Is there a reply?

[00:20:28] CHELSEY DONN: There's not a reply,

[00:20:29] which is even, I know, I know, I know, well that was like even more why it's like, this is a valuable review, because clearly the company's not coming to their own defense in any way

[00:20:40] here, or apologizing,

[00:20:42] TREY GERRALD: I mean, this is a beautiful example 

[00:20:44] CHELSEY DONN: and this is a verified page, 

[00:20:46] TREY GERRALD: Write the power of a reply, cause I, I was willing to, um, be persuaded 

[00:20:51] CHELSEY DONN: that's right, I know, that's right, 

[00:20:54] TREY GERRALD: blow and glow, more like, blow, no show,

[00:20:58] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, more like blow no,

[00:21:03] TREY GERRALD: very good Chelsey,

[00:21:05] CHELSEY DONN: thank you, all right, we've done it, we've reached the most regal portion of our show, Trey, who are you inducting for?,

[00:21:15] VOICEOVER: My Royal Highness, It's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,

[00:21:22] TREY GERRALD: love, I really must induct this week, content creators who wear GoPros that are 4K. on roller coasters and theme parks and upload them to YouTube.

[00:21:36] CHELSEY DONN: you love this,

[00:21:37] TREY GERRALD: I love experiencing theme park attractions on my couch. I don't, it's like, this is a very weird niche thing, but there is a huge community and I'm not even really like, I'm not a Disneyphile.

[00:21:51] I'm not like a theme park person necessarily. I love them. And I'm for them, but it's not part of my personality, but there's something so satisfying about like, Oh my gosh, I went to like Universal Studios Orlando as a kid, and I remember like the Revenge of the Mummy ride, and it was so scary, and then it like occurs to me for some random reason, and I'm like, Oh wait, I want to like

[00:22:15] CHELSEY DONN: experience,

[00:22:16] TREY GERRALD: it.

[00:22:17] And there's like tons of options. There's people that wear GoPros and they like go through the experience, POV, it's so fun, and I don't know, I just, there's something that's very satisfying, it feels, like, innocent and fun and joyful, right, um, and you don't feel like you're gonna get dizzy and throw up donuts from last week, so, I just wanted to take a moment to really give five stars to all these people that do it, cause it's really fun, especially when it's 4K and you're like, OH MY GOD, like, I just love it, talk about a blow and glow, I love, so much.

[00:22:53] I love that. So this week, I'm giving you your shine. I'm polishing and glowing for you, all of you POV roller coaster YouTubers. Thank you for your work.

[00:23:04] CHELSEY DONN: Wow.

[00:23:05] TREY GERRALD: You are my royal highness.

[00:23:09] CHELSEY DONN: That's a niche.

[00:23:10] TREY GERRALD: Have you never watched one?

[00:23:12] CHELSEY DONN: No, I'm not a huge roller coaster person. So I don't know

[00:23:15] how I would feel. Maybe I would like it, because I don't, have to like go on, but I can still experience

[00:23:21] it?

[00:23:22] I'm going to tell, I could tell a story about roller coasters in the after show. That's a little bit embarrassing.

[00:23:27] TREY GERRALD: Well, it's a fun thing because like, especially like Disney, well, all of these amusement parks, like they create such little intricate worlds and so you can like watch them and slow them down. And like, sometimes that'll be like a dark ride that they've like done and like the weird Silence of the Lambs, like green, like black 

[00:23:46] CHELSEY DONN: yeah, yeah, yeah, 

[00:23:47] TREY GERRALD: or whatever.

[00:23:47] So you can like actually

[00:23:51] TREY GERRALD: vision. They have Space Mountain with the lights on,

[00:23:55] CHELSEY DONN: I wonder if I would like, I love, Space Mountain is my favorite roller

[00:23:58] TREY GERRALD: but then you, you won't feel like your neck is going to get, you know, You're gonna get decapitated 'cause you can actually see like, oh, there's plenty of space.

[00:24:05] CHELSEY DONN: I know, it does always feel like

[00:24:06] you're gonna like, if I put my hands up, I would lose a hand.

[00:24:09] TREY GERRALD: That's right.
