[00:00:36] CHELSEY DONN: Hello,

[00:00:40] TREY GERRALD: Ooh, and welcome to Review That Review. We are the podcast that is dedicated to reviewing.

[00:00:48] CHELSEY DONN: Reviews!

[00:00:50] TREY GERRALD: That is Chelsey Donn.

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

[00:00:54] TREY GERRALD: But why don't you just call us collectively?

[00:00:56] VOICEOVER: The Review Queens,

[00:01:00] TREY GERRALD: Oh, I thought of something I had to tell you in the after show.

[00:01:02] CHELSEY DONN: But first, Trey, it's actually in real time been a minute since I've seen your beautiful face. So I'm so happy to be back here with you. And it's been a while since I've given you the opportunity to,

[00:01:17] VOICEOVER: Lodge a complaint,

[00:01:18] CHELSEY DONN: so I would love to give you the floor. What would you like to complain about this week?

[00:01:22] TREY GERRALD: Well, first of all, ditto. And then, okay, I need to be vulnerable and I actually am very excited to be lodging this because this is a real call to arms to anyone listening. I actually, this isn't just like, hey, call in. I actually really would love anyone's advice on this topic, starting with you, Chelsey. So I need to lodge a complaint about nose hair.

[00:01:43] So comedy aside, like, you know, especially with men, it seems to be a gendered thing. Like as you get older, like your ear hair and your nose hair starts to become more pronounced. Okay. So, I'm very conscious of trimming my nose hair, and I have like an electric trimmer, you know, that has the little like adapter thing that's a circle, and like it has the cup, yes, so, I do that, but for, like, somehow it doesn't always get all of the hair, which is a thing, right?

[00:02:08] And then I have experienced in my life, when it starts growing back, my nose is exceedingly sensitive, and I like feel like the inside feels kind of raw in a way, and it's like when I'm breathing in too hard, like it's, Tingles, I'm just at sort of at a loss. I have once in my life. It was when I was in Los Angeles doing a show.

[00:02:28] I got my nose hairs and my ear hairs waxed. And that was crazy. And it was great and awesome. But then so many people like slid into my DMs and were like, Hey, that's actually really kind of dangerous because you're opening all the, I don't know. And then I'm also sort of like, well, Can I just go to like, who does, who does nose hair waxing?

[00:02:48] Like, I don't know. I guess I could do a Google and figure it out. It's 2024, but I'm like, do I go to the nail salon down the street and like ask them if they'll wax my, like, I don't know. But I'm now in this place where I am standing over people often and, and I feel very subconscious that people are looking at my nose hair.

[00:03:06] Now it's become a thing, but what's the real issue is that I always feel like I have a booger. I always feel like I have a booger. I'm saying it a third time. I always feel like there's a loose booger in one of my nostrils. And then I'm like, I have to go blow my nose. And Chelsey, I will literally tell you this is not an exaggeration.

[00:03:27] There's never a booger. Like I blow my nose. I take Zyrtec. Like I have hygiene, but I am so self conscious that I'm going to have something in my nose that is going to be so unappealing. And, and it's like, I don't know, maybe it's the hair growing back or it's the hairs that I can't access. Okay, that's my tirade.

[00:03:46] I have to lodge this complaint about nose hairs. Please, anyone listening, what do I do? Chelsey, do you have any experience with nose hairs? It's kind of a weird question.

[00:03:55] CHELSEY DONN: I have so many more opinions on this than I think you would think.

[00:03:58] TREY GERRALD: Oh, good, good, good.

[00:03:59] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. A few things. One, I hear you because like, even though I am really about body positivity and everyone show up as they are, I'm very grossed out by nose hairs and

[00:04:11] TREY GERRALD: It's a weird

[00:04:12] CHELSEY DONN: Like I'm grossed out by like an older person with like long nose hairs and long ear.

[00:04:17] Like it is kind of like, like I'm like, Ooh, like it's unappealing. That's how I feel about it. I still accept you and love you for who you are. But that's like my initial visceral response. So that's number one.

[00:04:28] TREY GERRALD: Me too.

[00:04:29] CHELSEY DONN: two, since you are vulnerable, I'll be vulnerable. I have PCOS. So I,

[00:04:36] TREY GERRALD: callback.

[00:04:37] CHELSEY DONN: because, don't even. So I get my face lasered from time to time because hormonal hair growth is a symptom of PCOS.

[00:04:47] And while they're in there, they're always like, do you want us to laser your nostrils? and I'm like Yeah, sure. Why not? While we're in here. So I've had my nose hair lasered multiple times. It doesn't feel good. It's like, ow, like for like a second, but then it's over. And like, I don't have nose hair. Like,

[00:05:09] TREY GERRALD: It's not stubbly stuff.

[00:05:11] CHELSEY DONN: no, I think I just have nothing because I've had, I've had it lasered like multiple times.

[00:05:16] They don't do it every time because I think I'm good now.

[00:05:19] TREY GERRALD: Well, my issue is like, is up here. It's like where

[00:05:23] CHELSEY DONN: You should have it lasered maybe. I don't know.

[00:05:26] TREY GERRALD: Just Google nose hair lasering.

[00:05:27] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah,

[00:05:29] TREY GERRALD: All right. I've never tried that. So

[00:05:31] CHELSEY DONN: when I was in there, they just like sort of did it, so like, I don't think that they'd think it was weird. I don't know about the ear hair,

[00:05:38] TREY GERRALD: Well, the good thing about ear hair is that even at a supercut, when they're cutting like your neckline, a lot of times they'll be like, they'll just get in there and get the ear hair, which is nice.

[00:05:46] CHELSEY DONN: another haircut, but you're not going to ask the person doing your haircut to be like, while you're in there,

[00:05:50] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, can you stick that up my nose? Literally. All right, well,

[00:05:55] CHELSEY DONN: I hear you, that's, That's a valid complaint. That's one I hadn't thought of, but I feel you and I'm sure our listeners can relate.

[00:06:04] I bet a lot of people out there can relate to unwanted nose and ear hair. So I've added it to the ledger.

[00:06:10] TREY GERRALD: thank you. Well, alright, so now that we've delved into some of that complaining ness, should we jump into an online review, which will either be more complaining, or, I don't know, maybe it'll be nowhere, it'll be a three star somewhere in the middle, or maybe it'll be a five star. You want to jump in?

[00:06:27] CHELSEY DONN: Let's do it.

[00:06:32] VOICEOVER: Review That Review,

[00:06:36] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trustee Review queens. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:06:43] TREY GERRALD: We read you a review, break it down, and rate the impact of that review on a scale from zero to five crowns. It's a very regal process that we call.

[00:06:53] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kvetch,

[00:06:55] TREY GERRALD: And this week, Chelsey, have secured the review. So tell us what have you brought in?

[00:07:02] CHELSEY DONN: I would love to share, so speaking of connecting with our listeners over things like nose, hair, and ear hairs, I wanna connect with one of our listeners this week because Trey, we have a very special listener submission. One of you real life Queen listeners out there has slid into our DMs and told us that you found this particular review funny and we wanted to share it with the rest of our audience.

[00:07:32] So let's get into it. First of all, I have to give credit where credit is due and give a shout out to Spoons of Stardust on Instagram. Thank you so much. We love, love, love hearing from you and this was such a treat. So thank you. Thank you. This review definitely went viral. It's an Amazon review for, I will give you the full supercala here.

[00:07:54] Carundo Women's 2024 Summer Short Sleeve V Neck Bohemian Floral Print Mini Dress Ruffle Swing A Line Beach Sundress Red Extra Large.

[00:08:13] VOICEOVER: It's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,

[00:08:16] TREY GERRALD: Okay, so it's a sundress.

[00:08:18] CHELSEY DONN: So it's a sundress this particular type is currently out of stock in case you get the review and you want to go Run and get it, but there are lots of other dresses Similar and I want to say they're around the like 35 under 50 range Just to give us an idea of price point.

[00:08:36] TREY GERRALD: So in full disclosure, I saw this review and Chelsey and I talked about it. I didn't read it in detail. I do know that it's from Danielle, who I went to college with. So thank you, Danielle, for supporting, but I am really listening blind because I don't actually really know. Okay, so it's how many stars?

[00:08:55] CHELSEY DONN: it is a 5 serve you and we have the return of Amazon customer.

[00:09:02] TREY GERRALD: God. Damnit.

[00:09:04] CHELSEY DONN: Goddamn GD Amazon customer, you know what I mean?

[00:09:08] TREY GERRALD: I mean, truly Amazon customer is like the Queen, queen,

[00:09:13] VOICEOVER: offenders,

[00:09:14] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, truly, if Amazon customer were to be one person, they would really be the star of the show, like, they would deserve a byline, you know what I mean? Like, it's like, Review That Review, with Chelsey Donn and Trey Gerrald, featuring,

[00:09:29] TREY GERRALD: Amazon

[00:09:30] CHELSEY DONN: customer,

[00:09:32] TREY GERRALD: Hey, good fault. All

[00:09:33] CHELSEY DONN: So you're already winning. Let's just say you're already winning with Amazon customer because at this point, Trey, I really think we just need to embrace it.

[00:09:40] TREY GERRALD: I think so. I,

[00:09:40] CHELSEY DONN: So let's call them. Yeah. Let's call them AC Slater. How about

[00:09:45] TREY GERRALD: Slater. I love this. Okay.

[00:09:46] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. All right. So this is AC Slater's five star review of this sundress. The subject is recommended by world's worst mom. Here we go. I bought this for a ungrateful and entitled 21 year old daughter.

[00:10:09] TREY GERRALD: Oh,

[00:10:10] CHELSEY DONN: She wears about a 12 usually and I ordered an XL.

[00:10:16] It fit and looked great on her and if she had refrained from her moodiness, it would have had an even better effect. When I listened to her list my myriad faults, this cute dress gave me. Some distraction to try to tune her out. It costs about the same as a pack of birth control pills in 1997, which may have been a more prudent investment.

[00:10:55] TREY GERRALD: Oh my god, I'm getting political.

[00:10:57] CHELSEY DONN: mean,

[00:10:59] TREY GERRALD: Okay, well this is very funny. Wait, when is Mother's Day? Wait, when's Mother's Day? Is

[00:11:05] CHELSEY DONN: my God. Tell me, please. No, I

[00:11:08] TREY GERRALD: it in June?

[00:11:09] CHELSEY DONN: a may. Wait.

[00:11:11] TREY GERRALD: in this episode, Wait, I think, hold on, wait, wait, wait.

[00:11:16] CHELSEY DONN: Stop, I'll die. May 12th is Mother's Day.

[00:11:20] TREY GERRALD: this is May 8th. Wait, that's crazy. This is the Mother's Day episode. Okay, so this is, well, we have to keep, no, we have to keep the sign because this is hilarious because it was literally that unplanned. So obviously this is our Mother's Day episode. That is so stupid. That is so stupid.

[00:11:40] CHELSEY DONN: Why is the universe so funny? Okay, that's great. Well, happy Mother's Day, mom. of glad that you didn't have birth control. Wow,

[00:11:52] TREY GERRALD: Well, okay, so now I'm hearing it's this is from the mother so that subject is obviously tongue in cheek.

[00:11:59] CHELSEY DONN: recommended by world's worst mom. Yeah.

[00:12:02] TREY GERRALD: Right, got it. Because I was like, wow, we're coming in hot. And then when they're like, my 21 year old daughter, I was like, wait, is this from a grandmother? Like, then I got very confused. Okay, this also occurred to me just off the top.

[00:12:13] So obviously, like, the dynamic between parent and child can be and that does teen, teen, I just Freudian slipped, it does seem to pop off in the teens. So, when you're 21, like I'm just wondering, when do you think that, like, period is? But I guess 21, you're like, getting your independence,

[00:12:35] CHELSEY DONN: I still feel like you're still a kid. Like your mom is still buying things for you. Like you're still like maybe home for the summers in between college or home for winter break. You have like independence because you're in college, but you also like you're still a kid when you're home. So it's like Britney Spears, like I'm not a girl, not yet a woman phase of life, right?

[00:12:58] TREY GERRALD: Does your mom still purchase things for you?

[00:13:00] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, does yours?

[00:13:03] TREY GERRALD: Not really, but we don't we don't do a lot of gifts giving in my family, but

[00:13:06] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, it's more like we're at the store and I'm like, I really like that. And then my mom will be like, it's your birthday gift. You know what I mean?

[00:13:15] TREY GERRALD: right So I want the daughter to reply like I want to hear the daughter's point of view because I wonder if the daughter liked The dress because this really is a review about the joy you get From giving it to someone who is awful because then like you can distract yourself by like looking at it

[00:13:31] CHELSEY DONN: Totally.

[00:13:33] TREY GERRALD: Do you know like I know that this sort of varies as well, but like they said that she's a size 14

[00:13:39] CHELSEY DONN: She's a size 12.

[00:13:40] TREY GERRALD: So is that generally extra large? I don't know like women's sizes necessarily.

[00:13:45] CHELSEY DONN: 12, 14 is a extra large.

[00:13:48] TREY GERRALD: it. I think I'm a size 16 if anyone's wondering. I mean, alright, So I think it's really funny because I instantly connect and relate to like the narrative that's going on. Do you think that there's any value new or unique information about this supercala dress product?

[00:14:07] CHELSEY DONN: Well, we are being told that it fits. We're being told that it looks so nice that it distracts me from things that are bad in my life. And it's five stars. So I think, yeah, I think there is information that's being added here. I also think clearly this is being written for humor.

[00:14:29] TREY GERRALD: I would hope I hope this is not like

[00:14:33] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, I think the fact that it was sort of a viral Amazon customer review. Speaks to the fact that it had to have been

[00:14:42] TREY GERRALD: and when we do these sort of jokey reviews I am always more warm hearted when it's a jokey five rather than a jokey one star. Yeah,

[00:14:51] CHELSEY DONN: Yes.

[00:14:52] TREY GERRALD: there any?

[00:14:53] CHELSEY DONN: a jokey one star is harmful. A jokey five star is harmful in this case to no one but A. C. Slater's daughter.

[00:15:01] TREY GERRALD: Is there? So yes, I think the unique uniqueness here, Uniqueness here, is that like it's hilarious and like this is a funny take. So, Okay, but I do know, because I have, I have experienced I don't want to say something gendered, but I have experienced the unique relationship between mother and daughter with many people in my lives and that's a very, can be a very specific, deeply nuanced, antagonistic, it's just, you know, people know your buttons and sometimes that can go back and forth, so obviously I think it's a joke review, but do you think there's any possibility that this is like a mother?

[00:15:38] who is so over it with her fucking daughter that like

[00:15:42] CHELSEY DONN: She's putting her on

[00:15:42] TREY GERRALD: that she's literally like i keep getting this fucking email telling me there's you know what it's a great fucking sundress because my ungrateful motherfucking daughter hates every gift i give her fuck her she's such an ungrateful little brat god i wish i had had birth control stop sending me emails i mean

[00:15:59] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah,

[00:15:59] TREY GERRALD: i don't think that's real but like could it be

[00:16:02] CHELSEY DONN: well, I guess like what I think that you're getting at maybe like the truthful shady Which like you've never approached shady from like this perspective because of anyone's being shaded It's the daughter which is sort of funny and unusual and I love that but I think the question is If the daughter read this review, would she be like, Mom, you're hilarious, like, get over yourself, or would she be like, hurt, like, oh my god, my mom just said on a public forum, again, anonymously, to point out, That she wishes she had birth control and didn't have

[00:16:40] TREY GERRALD: no because it only feels comical to me

[00:16:43] CHELSEY DONN: It only feels funny, right?

[00:16:45] TREY GERRALD: like I could,

[00:16:46] CHELSEY DONN: Nobody's getting

[00:16:47] TREY GERRALD: I could also see like in the relationship that like you give it as much as you like love it that I could see the daughter being like, okay, recommended from the world's worst daughter.

[00:16:58] CHELSEY DONN: right. Yeah, yeah,

[00:16:59] TREY GERRALD: Let your mother buy you these stupid frilly sundresses so that she doesn't have to receive all of her myriad of faults because she's a cunt.

[00:17:07] Like, I could see it,

[00:17:09] CHELSEY DONN: Thank you for the dress once a year, mom. I'll be sure to like add it to the pile of dresses that I never

[00:17:15] TREY GERRALD: and I'll continue by my birth control so you'll never be a grandmother.

[00:17:19] CHELSEY DONN: Exactly. Yeah. No, I think you're right. I think that this is probably based on AC's

[00:17:27] TREY GERRALD: I

[00:17:27] CHELSEY DONN: is probably the family that just can throw

[00:17:30] TREY GERRALD: I think so, yeah. It is really humorous to me.

[00:17:33] CHELSEY DONN: it is funny. No, it's, it's humorous to me too. That's why I was so excited that Danielle submitted it to us and that we got to share it with you guys. Do we think that this is a common experience and how do you think in this situation we assess common or fluke?

[00:17:49] TREY GERRALD: I mean, I've never had a child, I don't want to. I can imagine that if I was, you know, clothing a child, I wonder how often, I don't know, even when I visit my little nephews, I'm like, Oh my god, these clothes are so cute, you know, and they can be having a meltdown, and I'm just like, aww, it has a little duck on it.

[00:18:06] So like, I wonder if it is common to sort of like, be charmed by the cute little miniature, but that's a 21 year old, you're not, I don't know. Is it, I don't know, I wonder what that experience is like, because I don't tend to buy people clothing, but that's what I'm saying, it's sort of like, this is like a personal essay of a narrative of a relationship, more than it is about the sundress.

[00:18:25] CHELSEY DONN: I know. I mean, I guess if we're trying to extract the elements of the review that are about the draft, we could say,

[00:18:37] TREY GERRALD: It

[00:18:37] CHELSEY DONN: you know, I usually wear a 12, I ordered the XL, it fit and looked great. That is sort of unusual. It's a real gamble out there, as you know, because I think we've bought stuff for podcast photo shoots.

[00:18:51] When you buy clothes on Amazon, I mean some people do it successfully, but I often find especially the trendier fashion on Amazon can be really low quality. So I do think that them saying that it fit, that it looked great, could be common.

[00:19:08] TREY GERRALD: I think so, too. Spelling grammar is good, right?

[00:19:11] CHELSEY DONN: Spelling and grammar is obviously very intentional. What do we think AC does for a living?

[00:19:18] TREY GERRALD: That's a really good question. I don't know. I don't know. I want to say a stay at home mom, but that

[00:19:22] CHELSEY DONN: I know me too, but that feels like Agree. So if they had a job, I think that they like work at a really cute boot. No, no, because then they wouldn't be buying. Maybe they work at like a floral shop

[00:19:38] TREY GERRALD: because it's a fluoro.

[00:19:38] CHELSEY DONN: because it's a floral dress.

[00:19:40] TREY GERRALD: I don't know, I, I don't know, I kind of feel like, if you gave birth in 97,

[00:19:45] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. Nice math.

[00:19:47] TREY GERRALD: I don't know, I feel, I don't know, I don't know what their job would be, I feel like, I don't know, they seem very funny to me, because it's an intelligent humor in a way, I don't know, I really don't know, I could see how they,

[00:19:59] CHELSEY DONN: they own a local gift shop. I could see them being like a personality like, Hey, Jane, good to see you again. Got any good new jokes for me? What happened with Allie?

[00:20:10] TREY GERRALD: like here comes Jane with the fruitcake again, now I have a new door stopper, Alright, well then like, okay, the real question before we crown is like, do you think this would have any impact on you buying the dress?

[00:20:23] CHELSEY DONN: in a weird way, I think it does, like, I think that it's funny, and I also trust this mother, Um, who's clearly, like, Judgmental of their daughter, if they're saying that it's a good dress, I sort of believe them, that's the impact for me, How about you?

[00:20:40] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, I don't know. I mean, it might just draw traffic to the products page, which now it's unavailable, but I'm assuming there's other

[00:20:47] CHELSEY DONN: There's other, yes,

[00:20:49] TREY GERRALD: So like, I feel like mate, I don't know.

[00:20:52] CHELSEY DONN: Interesting, Trey is completely stumped, do you think you could figure it out while we crown?

[00:20:57] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, let's do it.

[00:20:58] CHELSEY DONN: Alright, let's do it.

[00:20:59] TREY GERRALD: So, Chelsey and I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influence each other, we will simultaneously reveal our ratings.

[00:21:08] VOICEOVER: The Queens are tabulating,

[00:21:15] Central School

[00:21:16] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, interesting. I'm holding up four and a half crowns. Trey's holding up three and a half. Trey, tell us why three and a half crowns for A. C. Slater. Full crown less than I'm giving.

[00:21:28] TREY GERRALD: Well, since we are the Review Queens, I do feel like I appreciate that it is jokey, but giving five. It's not really harming the product, if anything, it's, uh, it's drawing more attention to it, which I think is queenly.

[00:21:42] CHELSEY DONN: Mm hmm.

[00:21:43] TREY GERRALD: And, as we often discuss, so often the review section can just be so tepid and boring, and this is like full personality, so like I really want to acknowledge that, it's a little more than half way, I got a huge chuckle, it did go viral, so the people have spoken, and it has connected Danielle with us, and now here we are, so like there is some greatness behind it, but as far as a review for the specific dress, I don't know that it's actually valuable but then when you are scouring it's sort of like this is the anomaly so it does have a lot of value so i'm just saying three and a half because it's a little more the middle of the road and i think it's very funny i think they did a great job so ac slater that's why i'm saying three and a half why did you say four and a half uh

[00:22:29] CHELSEY DONN: I'm giving Mama AC four and a half crowns because first of all, I am inflating for Danielle because I have to incorporate my own bias as a queen now, over two years into. Reading reviews, I think like I'm a little bit hardened, like it's hard to get like a laugh, a chuckle out of me or to show me something that's different and I think this review really did that.

[00:22:53] This stood out as a review, a subject, a way in to a product that we haven't heard before. So, for that uniqueness alone, I think I really had to, unique, really had to inflate my crowning. At this point, I didn't mention this when we were reviewing it, but I did find the actual product and the actual review on Amazon, and as of yesterday, there are 3, 258 reviews.

[00:23:20] People who have quote unquote found this helpful. So like you said, I think the people have spoken and for that, even if you don't check all the boxes, I'm going to give you high marks for that. And so that was why I went with nearly a Review Queen, four and a half crowns.

[00:23:35] TREY GERRALD: I love it, oh my gosh, Danielle, thank you so much for sharing,

[00:23:39] CHELSEY DONN: so fun!

[00:23:40] TREY GERRALD: obviously we are imploring all of you, if you've come across this stuff, send it, we appreciate the back and forth,

[00:23:46] CHELSEY DONN: Yes. Danielle, I hope we did you proud. Let us know what you think, please, when you hear this episode, Tell us if you would have crowned AC, Mama AC, Mama AC Slater, higher or lower than Trey and I did. We'd love to hear from you, and thank you. And with that, we have done it, Queen. We have reached the most regal portion of our show, Trey.

[00:24:08] Let us know who you're nominating for Mmm,

[00:24:12] VOICEOVER: My Royal Highness

[00:24:14] TREY GERRALD: Alright, so today, I'm really excited. I'm going to induct a sensation and feeling.

[00:24:18] CHELSEY DONN: mm hmm,

[00:24:21] TREY GERRALD: off feeling.

[00:24:24] CHELSEY DONN: hmm, haa,

[00:24:26] TREY GERRALD: like, knowing that you have a day off tomorrow helps today go by faster. Waking up on a day off, you can just sort of wake up when you need, when you want.

[00:24:37] You could take a nap. Also, conversely, on a day off, you can do menial tasks that need to be completed. It's really just this, like, charge. It's like a reset. There's nothing greater. And, I, maybe this was on an episode of My Favorite Murder, they were talking about, they were saying what their favorite day of the week was, and the conversation turned into like, well, I guess it's like Thursday because I know Friday is like the beginning of the weekend and the other person was like no I like Saturday because you're in the middle and it really made me start thinking like oh I actually like I enjoy the fact that once Friday is done I have Saturday to myself.

[00:25:12] So, like, a day off starts for me mentally the day before the day off, right? And I am fortunate that my work schedule is so that I have a couple of days off in the week. Some of them feel more day offy than the others, but, you know, in our culture of work, being able to have a day off, is of such value, another reason why I don't want to have kids, but I have to just bring it to the show.

[00:25:36] I want everyone to just inhale and exhale, channel your own sense of the day off. If someone is like a guru master, how do we have that feeling even on our days on? There must be some profundity there. So I'm just going to channel that as you all are calling in en masse. Ditto. Ditto.

[00:26:08] CHELSEY DONN: Trey. I approve. I love that. That is, that is true. We need to take the moments to identify those, like, just sort of exhale, relax moments, because we are so often caught up in the grind of it all, that it's important to indulge in those moments. So I'm glad part of my indulgence in that day off moment is actually being here with you, Trey, like truly.

[00:26:33] TREY GERRALD: Ditto. Ditto. But because we literally caught ourselves unaware, I do as we Reach the ending of today's episode. Want to acknowledge all of the mothers. Happy Mother's Day a couple of days early. How hilarious that today's Mother's Day episode snuck up on all of us. We're remembering each other's birthdays, but not Mother's Day, apparently.

[00:26:53] And thank you, Danielle, your timing of sending that viral review timed perfectly for today for the world's worst mom review.

[00:27:02] CHELSEY DONN: Could not have planned it better. Like, could not.

[00:27:04] TREY GERRALD: We love all of you. Thank you for listening. And we shout out all of the mothers, of

[00:27:09] CHELSEY DONN: Yes, of course.

[00:27:11] TREY GERRALD: we did it, Queen. That is another round on the R U A R Q Ferris Wheel of generally ungrateful, entitled daughters with moodiness pointing out myriad faults.

[00:27:25] CHELSEY DONN: All right, mama. Thank you for joining us today. If you like what you heard, please tell a friend.

[00:27:31] TREY GERRALD: And if you did not like what you heard, tell an enemy. Okay, everyone, on this week's After Show, speaking of mothers and family, Chelsey, you and I are going to be rating and reviewing a one star Google review for the Henry County Courthouse, And Napoleon, Ohio.

[00:27:52] CHELSEY DONN: my

[00:27:53] TREY GERRALD: Just wait, just wait for the tie in.

[00:27:57] CHELSEY DONN: I can't wait and I wonder why this was said,

[00:28:01] TREY GERRALD: It's just a direct like, how much longer? And, and they're not shading you, they're not being a bitch, They're asking how much longer because you are allowed to ask that, but my god in the south, If you were to say, excuse me, what's the hold up? People would be like, We have a mass shooter in the building. That's a terrible joke, why did I say

[00:28:22] CHELSEY DONN: oh my god,

[00:28:23] TREY GERRALD: god.

[00:28:30] CHELSEY DONN: oh my goodness,
