[00:01:30] Chelsey Donn: I'm good. Our mutual friend Emily Crowder is visiting me from the East Coast, so that's been very nice. It's always like, As much as sometimes when A' friend visits, it can be like overwhelming cuz you feel like, okay, 'I need to make sure this person has A' good time. But at the same time, it's kind of nice cuz you get to revisit the like top list of places you like to go to and share it with someone for the first time.

So I've been enjoying

[00:01:57] Trey Gerrald: Have you been doing A'? Lot of that.

[00:01:58] Chelsey Donn: you know, we've been, we've been making our way around. It's been nice.

[00:02:02] Trey Gerrald: Love that.

[00:02:03] Chelsey Donn: love. Yeah. And I've done some cooking and introduced her to some of my friends out here. You know, slowly but surely I'm pulling.

[00:02:09] Trey Gerrald: That's

[00:02:10] Chelsey Donn: No offense try, but I'm trying to get her over here on the West Coast

[00:02:14] Trey Gerrald: can take her cuz you know what, we all have FaceTime now, which is such A' beautiful

[00:02:19] Chelsey Donn: true.

[00:02:20] Trey Gerrald: And 'I know that her boyfriend is gonna be over in New York, so I'm not really threatened.

[00:02:25] Chelsey Donn: Oh, well apparently her boyfriend likes la so 'I just saying. All right, well anyway, we're together. We're on opposite coast to become one on this podcast. It's been A' week, so I'm sure there must be some complaints that you have gathered. So, do you have A'? Complaint? You wanna Lodge?

[00:02:43] Trey Gerrald: I'll jump right in. 'I would love to

[00:02:46] VOICEOVER: Lodge, A, Complaint.

[00:02:47] Trey Gerrald: against having A' cop driving behind you.

[00:02:51] Chelsey Donn: Oh,

[00:02:51] Trey Gerrald: Have you ever experienced that? You're just driving along, experiencing your own life? We talked A' little bit about this last week and it made me put A' little asterisk because nothing instantly like sucks all of the air out of A' car.

Then when there's A' cop, you notice it. Automatically, like 'I take my foot off the pedal or 'I put my foot on on the brake, and then I'm like suddenly like, oh my God, what speed is it? Oh my God, what am 'I doing? I'm like, look around 'I like have to stare at the cop to see if they're about to turn the lights on.

I'm like, and then when they get behind you,

[00:03:25] Chelsey Donn: Yes. Terrifying.

[00:03:27] Trey Gerrald: you know, proverbial last walk where I'm like, at any moment the sirens are in, lights are gonna go off. Is he about to flip it now? What's happening? Am 'I going too fast if 'I

[00:03:38] Chelsey Donn: Even when you're not doing anything wrong, like even when you're like following

[00:03:42] Trey Gerrald: Oh yeah. 'I mean 'I. Yeah. 'I don't want, A' can A' horror on myself, but I've never gotten A' ticket before. 'I do 'I am like A' law abiding citizen here. So like, it's just my anxiety, but I'm instantly. Do they know 'I slowing down? Do they know what's happening the other day?

[00:04:00] Chelsey Donn: Does it look suspicious that I'm going slow now?

[00:04:03] Trey Gerrald: Exactly. So the other day, this drive, 'I make every day from work, there's A' red light, which we have covered many times on the show.

And there's not A' specific sign that you can't turn right on red. But 'I was at the light and there was, it's late. There are no, there's no cars coming on any side. It's just literally me and the cop behind. At A' four-way intersection and I'm turning right and it's red and 'I. It's not changing Anytime soon 'I can see.

The other side is green for miles and I'm like, what do 'I do? 'I 'I think 'I have to sit here. What 'I, maybe 'I have to erase what 'I just said moments ago because there are times when 'I do just turn red there. 'I turn right there on the red. So, but 'I don't know if that's illegal or

[00:04:51] Chelsey Donn: But it's confusing. 'I. Don't think it is illegal. 'I. Think in, in New Jersey, you are allowed to turn right on red unless there's assignment says you're not. But 'I understand how in that moment you're like, I'd rather be the person that just

[00:05:03] Trey Gerrald: Well, because then 'I was like, if 'I turn, will they pull me over? Am 'I doing something wrong? If 'I don't turn, is this cop about to honk at me? And then 'I was like, what is the experience of A' Cop? Because do they just always like, are they just always driving behind people that are going A', little too slow, that are always really cautious, that adhere to everything That's annoying because 'I would never try to like be brave or do something brazen with A' cop behind me.

[00:05:33] Chelsey Donn: Oh yeah. No, no. 'I was at one of those, like 'I, we both arrived at A' stop sign at A'. Similar time. But 'I definitely like got there first before the cop and 'I was just like, go ahead. Go ahead. You go ahead. No, I'm fine to wait like you please. 'I don't wanna be anywhere near you, even though 'I have the right of way.

[00:05:51] Trey Gerrald: Oh, funny.

[00:05:51] Chelsey Donn: You know, 'I was like, that's fine. You,

[00:05:54] Trey Gerrald: Well that's my Complaint 'I. 'I don't like the power play, the power dynamic and what 'I instinctually jump into in order to escape any sort of trouble, even when there is no trouble. So 'I, 'I have to Lodge that. If anyone else has any experiences being tailed by police or A', quick je and hide Hyde personality shift.

As soon as there's A' cop in the area, let me know. Call in one eight fifty review zero.

[00:06:20] Chelsey Donn: yes. 'I. Think A'. Lot of people can relate to that. There is just like an automatic feeling of your heart, like, you know,

[00:06:27] Trey Gerrald: Hmm.

[00:06:28] Chelsey Donn: so 'I definitely feel that. 'I have A', Complaint to Lodge too. It's not really related, but you know, when you're, you're checking the mail and. Every once in A' while you see one of those envelopes and it's like the check envelope and you can tell it's A' check because it has like the window and you can see the like check material or it's one of those that has the like perforation all around the side of it.

So you're gonna like open it. It's clearly A' check and you're excited. You're like, oh my God, yes. A' check. And then you open it up and it's A' loan offer. Oh no, no. Or A' credit card offer. This is just how are we getting away with doing this? It is terrible. And sometimes it'll actually be A' check that says like, you know, $30,000 'I.

Remember 'I got recently, 'I opened it up and 'I was like, oh, it's A' residual check or whatever, and it was like $35,000. And 'I was like, oh my God. Like 'I, 'I like blinked. I'm like, am 'I looking at this, right? Like $35,000, it says my name on it. And then 'I realized it was A' loan. For A' $35,000 loan.

How is this legal? How are we allowed to do this? 'I mean you're not supposed to falsely represent like A' business can't have A', Starbucks, LogoVora, or s
