[00:01:19] CHELSEY DONN: My week's been going pretty well. You know, things have an amping up this week. I had been meaning to catch up on Curb Your Enthusiasm, which I hadn't done. I've been enjoying that very much. I I'm doing good this week. How about you, Trey? How are you doing?

[00:01:34] TREY GERRALD: It's funny. You're talking about, I mean, I know that this is a re launch of, uh, Curb Your Enthusiasm is live now, but I just started this week watching an old show that has not relaunched. Cause it just ended. I just, for the first time in my life, I started watching Veep.

[00:01:48] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, I haven't watched Veep either. Maybe I should get on the Veep train.

[00:01:52] TREY GERRALD: It's very funny. I'm on episode four, like obviously it's very funny. The world knows that, but I've been introducing a little bit of television back into my life that is been going great and fun. And. We're here and I'm excited for today's episode because we're going to be covering a place. I've always yearned to go in my life, but I've never been.

[00:02:14] CHELSEY DONN: Yes! I'm so excited as well. And also, I just have to comment. I mean, not everybody is watching, but Trey, What a gorgeous hat you have. Can you describe it?

[00:02:24] TREY GERRALD: Thank you. I did receive in the mail a gift with a note attached that said thank you for being such an awesome co-host and it's one of our merch items. This is a white baseball hat that says Kvetcher on it. I like to wear it when I'm running. I've I've been running once since I've had this hat, I really feel like when people see me, they laugh, they get a little chuckle.

[00:02:46] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah! I think it's so cute. I love it. I have my black Kvetcher hat. I'll put it on for the After Show.

[00:02:52] TREY GERRALD: Oh, that's fun. Okay.

[00:02:53] CHELSEY DONN: Great!

[00:02:54] Lodge A Complaint

[00:02:54] TREY GERRALD: Well, should we get into some bad things?

[00:02:58] CHELSEY DONN: I think maybe we should.

[00:02:59] TREY GERRALD: Okay Chelsey. I really need you to

[00:03:01] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint.

[00:03:02] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. Thanks. Trey. I want a Lodge, A Complaint today about like people who leave gum anywhere, like anywhere. That's not a trash can. Okay. Why are we doing this? I feel like the older I get the closer I become to like a schoolmarm because when I was in like elementary, middle high school, they were very strict about the no gum thing. You know, like if you got caught with gum, you would get detention. Like it was a big deal. And as a kid. Yeah. And as a kid, I was always like, oh, that's so stupid. Just let me chew my gum. This is ridiculous. Why can't I chew gum? It's so dumb. But the reality is people are animals, Trey.

[00:03:41] TREY GERRALD: Yeah.

[00:03:42] CHELSEY DONN: They just leave gum anywhere. Any old were right there in the middle of the sidewalk. Why not? Seems like a good place to spit out my gum. Someone might step in it, you know, like me I've stepped in gum before. It's horrible.

[00:03:54] TREY GERRALD: Have you ever like stuck gum somewhere?

[00:03:57] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, I'm not just saying this so I come off as like some goody-goody, but I don't think I've ever put gum anywhere besides the trashcan.

[00:04:04] TREY GERRALD: I don't think I've either.

[00:04:05] CHELSEY DONN: In fact, I have this thing where I get like, I love gum, but then gum loses its flavor and it becomes near nauseatingly to me. Like I got to get, like, I can't think about anything until I get the gum out of my mouth. Like I gotta get the gum, but I won't, I won't, until I can find inappropriate receptacle. What is happening with this?

[00:04:27] TREY GERRALD: You also said the phrase marm.

[00:04:29] CHELSEY DONN: Schoolmarm I think...

[00:04:31] TREY GERRALD: yeah. Where does that come from? I've heard it, but what is a marm?

[00:04:35] CHELSEY DONN: I don't know. I just imagine it as like some like crotchety old lady who is like, you know, slapping everyone's wrist with a ruler or something. I don't know. It's, can't be a good word. It's probably not 2022 appropriate, but you know what? I respect all the schoolmarms. Okay. Don't come at me.

[00:04:57] TREY GERRALD: It is very frustrating. when you come across something that's sticky and stuck to something that isn't supposed to be there. So obviously gum being in places that's not in a receptacle.

[00:05:09] CHELSEY DONN: Tragic. I can't do it. What about you, Trey. Give us a complaint, lay it on us.

[00:05:13] TREY GERRALD: I want to Lodge A complaint against hangers getting caught amongst themselves. Oh my, have you ever encountered that -

[00:05:20] CHELSEY DONN: So many times the death of many hangers!

[00:05:23] TREY GERRALD: It's so frustrating. You like, there's so many things about hangers that are very frustrating. Like if you're trying to carry like 12 items on hangers, it like, well, it's like the most painful experience that a hand can ever have, and then you hang them on a rod and they're all caught up on each other. And then you, like, it's like trying to angle the hanger. It's like trying to untangle necklaces. Like you can't find the, start, you don't know how to fix it. Cause it's so frustrating. I just want to grab that article of clothing and it's like, suddenly I'm in a war in my closet and I don't like anything to do with being inside the closet at all.

[00:06:03] CHELSEY DONN: No, never, especially not like in a war. That sounds terrible.

[00:06:07] TREY GERRALD: So that's my complaint. Oy!

[00:06:09] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. All right. Well that felt good to get all of that off our chest. Don't you think?

[00:06:13] TREY GERRALD: I feel much lighter and I feel like with this levity, I am ready to go head-to-head!

[00:06:21] CHELSEY DONN: Does that mean that it is another versus an episode this week? Oh my God, we got to do it. Let's do it.

[00:06:30] TREY GERRALD: This is our first versus episode of 2022!

[00:06:35] CHELSEY DONN: 2022. Trey lets

[00:06:38] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kvetch!

[00:06:40] TREY GERRALD: Yes. Today is another vs episode! Today, Chelsey and I are both going to cover a one-star and a five-star review on the same topic. Today's topic, a ski resort in Vail

[00:06:57] CHELSEY DONN: That's right for this versus episode, Trey selected the one-star and I selected the five star. So to determine who goes first, we got to flip that quarter, Trey. All right.

[00:07:08] TREY GERRALD: You want to call it?

[00:07:08] CHELSEY DONN: Heads.

[00:07:11] TREY GERRALD: It is heads!

[00:07:12] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, thank goodness. I hadn't been getting it right in a while. I started to doubt myself. Okay. So, I'm going first!

[00:07:18] TREY GERRALD: All right. So let me tell everyone about what our topic is today. We are covering a ski resort called Antlers At Vail.

[00:07:27] TREY GERRALD: Antlers At Vail is the number three out of 52 for specialty lodging in Vail on TripAdvisor and per Antler's website, lodging options include 86, fully equipped and spacious condominiums, including studio suites, 1, 2, 3, and four bedrooms And I thought this was very interesting. The studio units are approximately twice as large as a standard hotel room. And I looked at the images and they are like very luxe. They offer a pool and hot tubs, a hot tub in the snow. That would be gorgeous. Fitness centers, pet Friendly condos, slope side, ski valet, In room, dining, and family friendly amenities. And at the time of this recording, there are 965 reviews for Antlers At Vail on TripAdvisor with six hundred and seventy eight, five star reviews and ten one star reviews. So with all of that background info, let's get into this versus battle, Henny.

[00:08:35] CHELSEY DONN: Let's do it.

[00:08:38] 5 Star Review for Antlers At Vail

[00:08:38] VOICEOVER: Review That Review.

[00:08:42] CHELSEY DONN: All right. I did scour through a lot of those fives are used to try and find someone that was the most passionate. So, Trey, help me with this one. Okay. This person is from Sydney, Australia, and their username is W A I M A T E zero One.

[00:09:22] TREY GERRALD: Right?. Like good day, Matie.

[00:09:24] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. That's why I was thinking that.

[00:09:26] TREY GERRALD: Alright! Let's be offensive. I love this.

[00:09:28] CHELSEY DONN: Way Oh! Way-Oh Matie 01, has written a five star review for Antlers. The subject is a really nice place to stay.

[00:09:41] CHELSEY DONN: When we choose ski accommodation, our requirements are two bedroom apartment as close to the lifts as possible. Like, ideally about as far from the lift, as you could throw a ski boot. Our scowering of the map suggested there's not a lot of suitable accommodations close to the lift's at Vail Village. It's mostly retail with the accommodation behind. This is one reason we opted for Lionshead and Antlers. Their website exuded a friendly vibe. As much as websites can exude vibes. Now, having been t
