[00:01:24] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my goodness. I'm good. Trey. I love the chicken, the return of the chicken, or is it a Turkey? I don't know either way. I like it.

[00:01:33] Trey Gerrald: some, um, feathered bird, whatever.

[00:01:35] Chelsey Donn: It's a bird with feathers. I'm good swimming along as usual. You know, these recording days just finished Pilates with watch that rock Pilates working on the core, you know, trying to get all the muscles firing.

[00:01:52] Chelsey Donn: So I'm good. How was your week?

[00:01:55] Trey Gerrald: My week is going well, you know, it's, um, really beautiful out, which is so nice. I'm enjoying, I really do. This is funny to have this conversation with someone who lives in LA, but I do enjoy having seasons. I like, you know, winter's my least favorite, but I enjoy the change cuz I think, well, I guess I don't like when it like becomes winter, but I do like when it becomes fall and I really like when it becomes spring and I love when it becomes summer.

[00:02:24] Trey Gerrald: Yeah.

[00:02:24] Chelsey Donn: I love when it becomes summer. My fave

[00:02:28] Trey Gerrald: So I'm enjoying that and I enjoy watching the dogs, sun bathing, even though I Donn don't sunbath cuz I'm too Scottish and pale.

[00:02:36] Chelsey Donn: yes, that's true.

[00:02:38] Trey Gerrald: Yeah.

[00:02:38] Lodge A Complaint

[00:02:38] Trey Gerrald: Well Chelsey, is there anything that you would like to

[00:02:42] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint.

[00:02:43] Trey Gerrald: about today?

[00:02:44] Chelsey Donn: I've been waiting. I think this is more of a conversation, but like I Donn don't understand why we're at this point. In the world with technology and where everything is at. And I still can't like edit an email.

[00:02:59] Trey Gerrald: What do you mean?

[00:03:00] Chelsey Donn: Like, you know, when you send an email and you make like a stupid typo or you like mess something up in the subject.

[00:03:06] Chelsey Donn: And like, now you're like, oh my God, I just wanna change this. I just think the email should have more technology, like a few options. One, if the person has not opened the email already, and we know that, then I should be able to like, do a full edit. If I have to, if the person has opened the email already, I'm fine with it having be, you know how like on Facebook, when you edit a comment it's like edited, that's fine.

[00:03:36] Chelsey Donn: Give me an edited. I just want a chance to go in there and fix an email. Cuz I had like an exchange earlier today where it was like, I was sort of rushing. I was trying to get a bunch of things done and I just needed to get the email out. So I got it out and then I made a stupid mistake. And like, I saw the stupid mistake that I made.

[00:03:57] Chelsey Donn: And then I had to like send an addendum, being like, sorry, made this stupid mistake. And then I made another stupid mistake in this correction to this. Like, it was just like, I kept messing things up. And I was like, if there was just a function within Gmail where I could edit this, even if the person had to get a freaking alert that I edited, at least it would like stay in one space and like, I wouldn't have to deal with all this back and forth and I could correct things.

[00:04:28] Chelsey Donn: I just think we should be there already as a society personally.

[00:04:33] Trey Gerrald: I agree. I also saw that the new iPhone. That's coming out will have the ability to unsend text messages

[00:04:44] Chelsey Donn: Oh,

[00:04:45] Trey Gerrald: or correct text messages.

[00:04:47] Chelsey Donn: Oh, that's

[00:04:48] Trey Gerrald: And that's the same, like along the same lines of

[00:04:51] Chelsey Donn: Wait. So like, unsend it meaning like if I sent you. A photo that I was like, Trey, delete this after you. I, I send you this photo or something like that. Cuz you know, we always send each other salacious photos of one another. So, so if I was doing that and then I was like, I don't really trust Trey.

[00:05:09] Chelsey Donn: I wanna make sure it's really deleted from his phone. I could then delete it. And it would disappear from your phone.

[00:05:14] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. I mean, I guess you could have done a quick screenshot, but, or I could have, but yes, apparently you will be able to remove the sent text.

[00:05:23] Chelsey Donn: so

[00:05:24] Trey Gerrald: Or to edit, but yes, I wish that emails would do that too. It is surprising. I remember that was one of the like perks about Gmail when it first started was like, they give you the option of five seconds to hit undo, but I wish that you could just like post humorously, um, edit.

[00:05:40] Chelsey Donn: Yeah. I know even like truly like even if it had to say a little like gray edit in the corner, I really wouldn't care cuz I don't think anybody would be like, oh she's like really trying to change this whole email.

[00:05:54] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. Cuz it's not like we're dealing with the post anymore. It's like, we're not sending a letter that is like done once you send it, like we should be able to change it. It's all digital anyway.

[00:06:06] Chelsey Donn: Totally. I just wish there was like some sort of an undue. I don't know who we can talk to. I personally Donn don't know anyone at Gmail, but if you're listening and you do let them know, this is what the people want. We want it. We're ready.

[00:06:21] Trey Gerrald: Really good.

[00:06:22] Chelsey Donn: Thanks. Trey. How about you? Have you been longing to complain about something?

[00:06:26] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, this is something that comes up for me every week. And it is like, I feel like my complaints often are these like underlying trembling anxiety fits that I have, but one of them is most definitely when you forget trash day and you know, you then have to wait an entire

[00:06:44] Chelsey Donn: Oh my God. I hate that.

[00:06:46] Trey Gerrald: hate it. Especially when the trash is full and then it's too much.

[00:06:53] Chelsey Donn: No. And then you gotta live with your trash for the whole week. And then what if like there's too much trash and now what am I waiting until? Like, it just, I'm all of a sudden I'm behind.

[00:07:03] Trey Gerrald: Right. And we keep our trash cans in the garage. We Donn don't have like a little fenced

[00:07:09] Trey Gerrald: off area outside. Right. And then it smells to high.

[00:07:12] Chelsey Donn: Oh

[00:07:13] Trey Gerrald: and then I know David's parents that are, you know, more secluded. They have little like bungee court actions attached to their trash cans because of bears.

[00:07:22] Chelsey Donn: fancy. Oh.

[00:07:23] Trey Gerrald: Well, you don't want the bears to get you.

[00:07:25] Trey Gerrald: I mean, maybe it's not bears in New Jersey, but it's like rodents and outdoor animals. Like they, you know, with their little digits, they can open the trash cans. Anyway, I really hate it because it's a moment of like, oh, I made a mistake and then you have to look at it daily.

[00:07:40] Chelsey Donn: You Donn, Donn don't have anyone to blame except for yourself. Those are the worst kind of annoyances, cuz you're like, it is my fault. I did mess it up. I still don't like it. Still gonna Kvetch about it.

[00:07:50] Trey Gerrald: That's my Complaint, cuz it really does bug me. And I, I always like for the amount of thought that goes into missing trash day, why can't I just have that energy and thought Tuesday night since the trash is picked up on Wednesday morning? Why, why, why

[00:08:05] Chelsey Donn: Why why Murphy

[00:08:07] Trey Gerrald: it is Murphy? Damn you Murphy.

[00:08:09] Chelsey Donn: Damn you Murphy.

[00:08:11] Trey Gerrald: All right. Well, that's my

[00:08:12] Chelsey Donn: Uh, I feel better. I think maybe we should like dig in to some other people's S and so they could feel better.

[00:08:20] Trey Gerrald: I think I would like to take a Complaint and go, Hey, with your

[00:08:26] Assess That Kvetch: Noah's Ark Water Park

[00:08:26] Chelsey Donn: Let's do it.

[00:08:27] Trey Gerrald: Complaint. Let's

[00:08:28] VOICEOVER: Asses That Kvetch.
