[00:01:10] Trey Gerrald: Hey Chelsey girl. How's your week goin?

[00:01:12] Chelsey Donn: Trey, my week is going well. I was a little bit late to the train I started and finished watching in a very short period of time. The Tinder Swindler. Have you seen it yet?

[00:01:25] Trey Gerrald: Oh, my God. I just watched it over the weekend!

[00:01:27] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my God. I was a half hour late to a meeting because I had to finish it. Like, it was insane.

[00:01:32] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. It really, the, especially the ending. I did not see coming.

[00:01:37] Chelsey Donn: Me too. I was so upset. I won't, we won't spoil it, I guess. I mean, it's late now. It's been out a while. Like you should have seen it.

[00:01:45] Trey Gerrald: I never saw anything about the article either that it's like about or whatever. But yeah, if you think you have an idea of like how that story is going to conclude, since it's a documentary, I highly recommend you watch it because you're going to be wrong. There's all it reminded me. There's this incredible podcast called Sweet Bobby. Have you heard about it?

[00:02:09] Chelsey Donn: no, it's like a true crime thing.

[00:02:10] Trey Gerrald: No, it's a well, yes, but it's a catfish story and it's, I can't remember where it is now.

[00:02:18] Chelsey Donn: Does it follow like one narrative story or

[00:02:21] Trey Gerrald: Yes. And in the, I think it's maybe eight episodes, but like the journalist is saying at the beginning, like,

[00:02:28] Trey Gerrald: this person had a 10 plus year relationship with this person, and we're going to go ahead and tell you they're being catfished, which is bad journalism, except It's not because where this story goes is so wild and crazy that the fact that it's a catfish, isn't even the tip of the iceberg. It was like, crazy, crazy. It's as if those women from Tinder swindler had a 10 plus year relationship where they quit their job, all these things were going on. And then when you find out who the catfish is, I, it is like, I just got

[00:03:05] Chelsey Donn: I think I'm going to have to listen to

[00:03:07] Trey Gerrald: just got goosebumps.

[00:03:08] Trey Gerrald: Oh, it's really good.

[00:03:09] Chelsey Donn: You just get sucked into these stories. I started sort of rewatching in the background and I had to stop, The Staircase

[00:03:17] Trey Gerrald: Oh,

[00:03:18] Chelsey Donn: because I couldn't remember if I had watched it or not. I had, but like, God, what a journey?

[00:03:23] Trey Gerrald: Did you see the new one? Cause they do a second season, essentially like the last seven episodes.

[00:03:28] Chelsey Donn: Oh, I don't know. I'm not there. So I guess, I guess I could watch the new one. I mean the owl store, is it all about the owl thing?

[00:03:35] Trey Gerrald: No, I think it's a new, um, prosecution team or Like, I think it's like about the appeal or something. I forget. I w um, but it's many years later

[00:03:44] Chelsey Donn: Oh my God. So scary. So many scary things in the world. And I guess like, the world is scary. Is that the conclusion

[00:03:53] Trey Gerrald: it has scary.

[00:03:55] Chelsey Donn: what's going on in your week in your life? Tell us,

[00:03:57] Trey Gerrald: Well, I also watched tender swindler. What else? I don't know. I have been feeling a little sense of emptiness since I've finished season two of cheer.

[00:04:06] Chelsey Donn: oh, I'm

[00:04:07] Trey Gerrald: wondering what's happening with my team and yeah. You know, just hanging out. It was actually pretty warm today, which is nice

[00:04:15] Chelsey Donn: Just like chugging along.

[00:04:17] Trey Gerrald: too.

[00:04:18] Chelsey Donn: To chill.

[00:04:19] Lodge A Complaint!

[00:04:19] Chelsey Donn: I really shouldn't complain, but I'm gonna, you know what I

[00:04:22] Trey Gerrald: Ha do it. I want to hear Chelsey. What is it that you want to

[00:04:27] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint.

[00:04:28] Trey Gerrald: about.

[00:04:29] Chelsey Donn: Okay. So I don't know if it has anything to do with like heat or ions or what happens, but you know, when you're taking a shower and then like the liner of the shower curtain or whatever it is, Sticks to your body and you like, can't get it off. And you're fighting this liner and you're trying to get clean.

[00:04:51] Chelsey Donn: And I'm like very OCD. So I'm like, I change it and I wash it or whatever, but like still y'all like, I don't want you touching my body. And it's just weird to me. Cause it doesn't happen all the time when it happens. I'm like, I don't know why you're so obsessed with me, but like get off, you know, why? Does this happen to you?

[00:05:10] Trey Gerrald: Well, I actually don't have a shower, curtain, shower any longer, but that is the worst. When you feel like it's just clinging on no one wants to Clinger.

[00:05:20] Chelsey Donn: back off. So anyway, I wanted a Lodge, A Complaint. I really hope that the shower liner can hear me because it's not far away bathrooms just back there, like cooperate. And also listeners, if you have any tips, like, what am I supposed to do? Like, is there a trick for this? I don't know. I haven't scoured Tik TOK.

[00:05:38] Chelsey Donn: Am I supposed to spray it with like hairspray or something? If you know how to get it to. Please do let me know.

[00:05:45] Trey Gerrald: What about those shower, curtain, rods that are like slightly poking outward. Do you know, we're talking they pivot out instead of a straight line. They're like a semicircle away from the shower,

[00:05:56] Chelsey Donn: Alright. I could look into

[00:05:58] Trey Gerrald: something.

[00:05:59] Chelsey Donn: about you? Try give us your complaint, lay it on us.

[00:06:01] Trey Gerrald: Uh, all right, well, today I want to lodge a complaint against an injustice in the world that happens when you pour a bowl of cereal and you get the milk and there's not enough milk for the bowl of

[00:06:14] Chelsey Donn: no,

[00:06:15] Trey Gerrald: It's one of those things where it's like, there is no substitute. Like you can't fill it with water. Like a cereal bowl full of water is... that's not cereal.

[00:06:26] Chelsey Donn: Yeah.

[00:06:26] Trey Gerrald: there, you can't put anything else. So then you're just sort of like, well, I can't eat this bowl of cereal because I've run out of milk. Has that ever happened to you?

[00:06:35] Chelsey Donn: Yeah, it has. And I'll say I proceeded to eat the cereal. Anyway. I w I was like, not happy about it, but I just, I eat it mostly dry.

[00:06:44] Trey Gerrald: and crunchy and hard.
