Chelsey: [00:00:44] Yeah. And Joe, thank you, Joe. Thank you. Thank you! Brilliant.
Trey: [00:00:47] Well, anyway,
Chelsey: [00:00:48] Anyway,
Trey: [00:00:49] Hey listeners. Welcome to Review That Review. The podcast dedicated to reviewing...
Chelsey: [00:00:56] ...reviews were just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we rate and review those hilarious scathing and sometimes suspicious online reviews.
Trey: [00:01:06] Oh, yes, that is Chelsey Donn
Chelsey: [00:01:09] and that's Trey Gerrald.
Trey: [00:01:11] But when we come together, we are
VOICEOVER: [00:01:14] The Review Queens.
Chelsey: [00:01:18] Gosh, these crowns are so heavy, you know, but someone's got to wear them.
Trey: [00:01:22] We, we don't actually have to wear them. This is a podcast.
Chelsey: [00:01:26] Oh, right. Well, okay. Anyway how's your week, Trey?
Trey: [00:01:30] Oh, I feel like I always really need a huge exhale. When you ask me that question.
Chelsey: [00:01:36] I know it is sort of an exhale inducing question. I'll give you that.
Trey: [00:01:40] But I don't know what I'm really exhaling about. I mean, I feel like I had a really great week. My husband.
Chelsey: [00:01:45] Good!
Trey: [00:01:45] Thank you. Yeah, I'm going to, I'm going to say thank you for saying good. Oh good. My, my husband David, uh, you know, the world has started opening back up and so he, um, is a wedding photographer, so he's been in Florida.
He had two separate weddings so I've been playing, you know, bachelor. Which has been fun. I can just like stretch out in a huge starfish in the bed, except for Winnie, because she like growls at me. If I take up space that she wants, but I don't know. I've had a really good week. It's been nice to sorta just do my own timeframe.
No, nothing like, yeah. What about you? How your week
Chelsey: [00:02:21] Livin' the life. My week's been good. I'm visiting family for the first time in over a year, since this whole COVID debacle,
Trey: [00:02:31] I was going to say the room that you're currently in looks strangely familiar to me.
Chelsey: [00:02:35] I know, it is weird. I, maybe you notice I'm not shooting my normal location today.
I'm in the drag queen room at Trey's house.
Trey: [00:02:45] there's also a little tiny picture of me as Peter Pan
Chelsey: [00:02:50] right there, and his shadow, his husband, but not like, but you know, it's not like a metaphor. here we are. I'm visiting. So I get to see Trey, which is great. I also have a nephew named Trey, so I got to see him as well.
it's been a good week. I've been getting up a lot earlier than I ever have. I always thought I wasn't a morning person. It turns out I just don't have children. You know, like, I guess you're you become a morning person when there are three little people that are like, "Get up! It's the daytime," you know, eventually, you're just like, Ugh, I guess I should get up.
So, been getting up earlier. So that's a good thing. And I celebrated my sister's birthday, last week, which was really nice. We haven't been together for a birthday in a while, so overall good week.
Trey: [00:03:33] I love that.
Chelsey: [00:03:34] Yeah!
Trey: [00:03:35] I feel like we're nailing, Um, having positive energy, which is a nice change from, living in COVID times.
Chelsey: [00:03:41] It's true. I think we've all learned to appreciate the little things.
Trey: [00:03:45] Yeah
Chelsey: [00:03:45] And with that in mind....
Trey: [00:03:47] Yeah. With that. Yeah, exactly. Perfect segue
Chelsey: [00:03:50] with that in mind, that brings us to
VOICEOVER: [00:03:53] Lodge a Complaint.
Chelsey: [00:03:56] Let's complain about stuff. Cause it feels good. So I was driving here today. Let's just like keep it in real time. And there are some construction people I'll call them who are working on the road, which is great.
And then there was a sign and it said, "Men Working" and it was triggering to me. I don't know why it's not because necessarily I've seen a lot of women construction workers, but I like to believe, There's no glass ceiling when it comes to construction. And there are plenty of women who are perfectly capable and I don't understand why the sign felt that it was necessary to let me know that there were men, there were men at work.
I'd never seen that before. Have you seen that before Trey?
Trey: [00:04:35] Of course.
Chelsey: [00:04:36] " Men Working?!"
Trey: [00:04:37] yeah.
Chelsey: [00:04:37] This is a thing?
Trey: [00:04:38] Was it like a big orange diamond or whatever?
Chelsey: [00:04:40] Yeah. It was like a big orange diamond, but it said Men Work... I mean, like I've seen like
Trey: [00:04:44] Work Zone?
Chelsey: [00:04:45] Work Zone exactly. Or like. you know, Working Ahead, Caution Working, you know, but like Working Men, like, why do I need to know it's a man?
And like, why are we assuming?
Trey: [00:04:56] That's, uh, I mean, it, like, I didn't even, I didn't even flinch at the top of this because I had know the sign. I've never thought about it.
Chelsey: [00:05:03] I think this is a, your area thing. I've never seen this before. I'm wondering if our listeners have seen this. Am I just weird?
Trey: [00:05:09] I feel like even in the deep south we had Men Working signs.
Chelsey: [00:05:13] Men Working?
Trey: [00:05:14] Yeah. But no, you're right. It's incredibly gendered. Like it doesn't really pass the 2021 test.
Chelsey: [00:05:19] No, I'm giving out a big old fail and I'd like to lodge a complaint.
Trey: [00:05:23] Do you, have like a, a suggestion for what the new signs should say and look like?
Chelsey: [00:05:28] I mean, I'm not really that disturbed by the actual design.
I get it orange, you know, triangle seems right. So that's fine for me.
Trey: [00:05:36] reflective...
Chelsey: [00:05:36] I think just maybe like Work In Progress, you know? Right. Like, we're all a work in progress. I was driving and I saw a sign. It was orange and it was like Work In Progress. I'd be like, yeah, that's right. Like a good reminder. Like I am a work in progress.
Like I don't need to be perfect. I'm a work in progress just like this road, but instead it's like MEN Working Here. So I have to be reminded of the patriarchy, just complaint lodged.
Trey: [00:06:03] I hear that. That is, it's a really great point. I'm never going to see one of those signs the same way again.
Chelsey: [00:06:08] Ahh!, I'm so glad I could change something in the world.
Trey: [00:06:12] I'm also ready to
VOICEOVER: [00:06:13] Lodge a Complaint.
Trey: [00:06:14] So this seems very, um, trivial, But I actually was thinking about this. You mentioned in an earlier podcast, the Siri feature on your apple watch constantly going off and it's
Chelsey: [00:06:27] All the time.
Trey: [00:06:28] It really started making me think about like how technology is all consuming. And I don't know if you've ever noticed this, but I am constantly being alerted that I am running out of g-mail storage. It makes me. Crazy. I-. I-. I-. Like, I, I think it's all a ploy from the man in order to like, get us to spend money on like getting Google backup storage. It actually like made me realize, oh my gosh, I've had my Gmail account since college and I never delete email.
I just archive it. So it's probably like, pre 2007, maybe of just like random emails, but the problem is it's cleaning them out. I get very sentimental. it's like, I don't need this email from whatever, but I I'm afraid to let go of it, even though I have no need for it.
I've never thought about it. It's just become a huge thing that makes me feel like I will never be able to Marie Kondo myself when it comes to like my digital clutter.
