[00:01:23] Chelsey Donn: Why aren't we a chick? You're just a chicken just

[00:01:25] Trey Gerrald: What's the difference between a chicken and a goose?.

[00:01:28] Chelsey Donn: I chickens, female.

[00:01:30] Trey Gerrald: don't know.

[00:01:30] Chelsey Donn: I don't know. I was just going to say, I feel like tidbits is the perfect word to describe what we're getting at Patreon. So many tidbits over there.

[00:01:38] Trey Gerrald: just switched up scrap. So I thank you.

[00:01:41] Chelsey Donn: Of course. And my week's going well. just been writing up a storm.

[00:01:46] Chelsey Donn: I'm like a writing machine.

[00:01:47] Trey Gerrald: you really are.

[00:01:48] Chelsey Donn: I'm sort of up against the deadline. So right, Ray, I feel like Alexander Hamilton, you know like writing

[00:01:55] Trey Gerrald: Wait, did you just say Alexandra?

[00:01:57] Chelsey Donn: Alexander, Alexander Hamilton.

[00:01:59] Trey Gerrald: I thought you said I'm like Alexandra Hamilton.

[00:02:03] Chelsey Donn: Oh, I could feel, yes. I'm like Alexander. That's what I meant to say. Alexandra Hamilton. And it's like, I'm calm. I'm like between Alexander Hamilton and like the tick tick boom guy, but hopefully like minus the death part. But I do feel like I'm running out of

[00:02:19] Trey Gerrald: John. A'. Jonathan Larson,

[00:02:22] Chelsey Donn: Um, yes. Alexandra Jonathan.

[00:02:27] Trey Gerrald: That's interesting anyway, well,

[00:02:29] Chelsey Donn: was your week?

[00:02:31] Trey Gerrald: uh, my week, you know, okay, so here we go. So my week?

[00:02:34] Trey Gerrald: you know, if you recall from last week, I was talking about how my throat hurt and it hurt to swallow. If you are a member. Yes, If you're a member of the Patreon, you will see the slow progression of like the color leaving my face.

[00:02:48] Trey Gerrald: And by the time we got to the after-show. The video footage of me is actually kind of scary so much so that at the end, Chelsey was like, I think, I think you should, do you want to take a nap? And I followed her advice. I did die. I died last week. Uh, literally dead I'm I've come back to live, call me Trey Christ.

[00:03:08] Trey Gerrald: And here I am, but I wasn't sure what was going on with me. And that's going to sort of lead into my complaint because my week was insane. I was literally in bed. All week, I have a day job that I've had, I had to like call out of. And it's like, it's the first time I needed a doctor's note because I had to have that to prove that I was sick because I was missing all these shifts and, you know,

[00:03:34] Chelsey Donn: Crazy.

[00:03:35] Trey Gerrald: It was very intense, but I will happily share that my rapid NPCR COVID-19 tests both came back negative and my rapid and like culture, which takes two days of the, of strap both Came back.

[00:03:52] Trey Gerrald: negative.

[00:03:52] Trey Gerrald: So I have no idea what was wrong with me. I'm feeling better today. My third still kind of hurts when I swallow, but very minimally. And I'm not on any Tylenol right now. So things are looking at.

[00:04:03] Chelsey Donn: we should not have Tylenol in the wings, just in case, you know, I don't know, Trey, you really scared me because the thing is Trey's already very pale, you know? And so Trey sick, it was a sight, it was a sight to see, and I was very concerned and I did think that your body looked as though it needed rest.

[00:04:23] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. I was asleep within 10 minutes like ending last week.

[00:04:27] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my goodness. I'm so glad that you're feeling

[00:04:29] Trey Gerrald: Thank you.

[00:04:31] Lodge A Complaint

[00:04:31] Chelsey Donn: Do you want a lodge into your complaint right away since we're already like ripe and of the season?

[00:04:36] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, let's just go ahead and take this opportunity. I really need to

[00:04:40] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint.

[00:04:41] Trey Gerrald: against doctor's notes. Can I tell you.

[00:04:44] Chelsey Donn: Yes.

[00:04:45] Trey Gerrald: Okay. I feel like when you're like a student, you need a doctor's note. Like I remember, you know. feigning having, um, asthma so that I could get a doctor's note. So I didn't have to participate in PE and elementary school.

[00:04:59] Trey Gerrald: And my mom was on. Yeah.

[00:05:01] Trey Gerrald: I didn't, I had never had asthma, but my mom was totally on board to like go along with the rules. I don't know if she knew if it was a ruse or not, but that way I didn't have to do physical activity and get made fun of, I just would be made fun of walking down the hall.

[00:05:13] Trey Gerrald: Playing basketball or trying to play basketball. Anyway, I don't, I'm not familiar with doctor's notes. I haven't used them in many years, but I needed one for my employer. And so the whole time I was sick, I kept thinking I had to get out of bed and go to the doctor. I have to go to the doctor and the thing now, like once you reach a certain age and you're not going to a pediatrician, doctors appointments are scheduled.

[00:05:36] Trey Gerrald: Weeks sometimes months in advance. So my primary care physician who's like a legitimate doctor was like, Oh, we don't have any availability. You could try calling in the morning, but I'm like, I need this doctor's now it became this crazy task. So then I had to go to like an urgent care and I, which is fine, but then it's like, but I know that this urgent care does COVID testing.

[00:05:56] Trey Gerrald: Am I going to get COVID over here trying to figure out if I have strap you

[00:06:00] Chelsey Donn: Oh, that's scary. Yes.

[00:06:02] Trey Gerrald: I was so scared to ask for the doctor's note. Cause I thought it's just like what it feels like to do a drug deal. Like, am I asking for this? Because

[00:06:10] Chelsey Donn: Your version of

[00:06:11] Trey Gerrald: something that's yeah. Well I was like, are they going to think that I'm like faking, trying to get a doctor's note because I'm late.

[00:06:17] Trey Gerrald: Like all this weird self talks are going on. And then when I, they were like, oh yeah, yeah, like we can get you One,

[00:06:23] Trey Gerrald: It was like literally a printed form with like five boxes and they just checked a box. And like the signature is literally. One, like wave form of a wiggle. Like it's no one's

[00:06:34] Chelsey Donn: right? Well, they always

[00:06:36] Trey Gerrald: yeah.

[00:06:36] Trey Gerrald: And it's like, the date was written so sloppily and it was just like, this patient is awaiting COVID-19 test results and can not return until more information is given. Like, I was like, this is like, this doesn't even, but it's all about the red tape is what I'm learning.

[00:06:52] Chelsey Donn: Yes, there's a lot of red tape, but I'm wondering, so when you called your first doctor and you were inquiring about this, did you say, like, I specifically need a doctor's note for work and they were like, we can't fit you in.

[00:07:04] Trey Gerrald: No, I didn't even

[00:07:05] Chelsey Donn: You probably should have said

[00:07:07] Trey Gerrald: Ooh, good tip. '

[00:07:08] Chelsey Donn: cause especially now in like the days of COVID when we might not want to go outside and be like further exposed.

[00:07:14] Chelsey Donn: If we were already feeling sick or we might not want to be the exposed Z. I can't imagine that they couldn't have done like a tele visit with a nurse practitioner or something. Just to get you a note.

[00:07:26] Trey Gerrald: Well, I did not even think about that. Also. My doctor I've talked about this before is so old school. I don't know if they do telemedicine,

[00:07:36] Trey Gerrald: but I should

[00:07:37] Chelsey Donn: God forbid, this should never happen again, but if it does, I would say tell them what you need, because they they'll either say, oh, you just need a doctor's note for work. Come in for 15 minutes here. So I can take a look at you or like, I'll do a tele visit and I'll, you

[00:07:54] Trey Gerrald: Oh, I so appreciate that. Great. I'm glad I lodged this complaint cause that's really

[00:07:58] Chelsey Donn: there you go.

[00:07:59] Trey Gerrald: anyway. So that's my complaint. Chelsey goose.

[00:08:02] Chelsey Donn: hear you.
