[00:01:38] Trey Gerrald: or Donn eight

[00:01:39] Chelsey Donn: Donn ate. Donn, ate today, thank God, because otherwise 'I would be really grumpy.

[00:01:45] Trey Gerrald: True. Here we are another week, ChelseyBD 'I. Can't believe that it's Almo. We are A' week away from tax.

[00:01:52] Chelsey Donn: Don't even freaking remind me cuz 'I still have to get my stuff done.

[00:01:56] Trey Gerrald: Oh my God.

[00:01:57] Chelsey Donn: every year, 'I wait till the very last minute and then my accountant's always like, we're gonna have to do an extension.

And I'm like, I'm so sorry. Here's all my things. And then she gets it done for me and she's like, 'I did it, but don't do this again next year. And then low and behold, Groundhog's

[00:02:11] Trey Gerrald: That must be every tax accountant's clientele list. Like everyone must be like

[00:02:16] Chelsey Donn: A'. Hundred percent.

[00:02:18] Trey Gerrald: interesting because this is my first full calendar year using the Mint app,

[00:02:23] Chelsey Donn: Oh,

[00:02:23] Trey Gerrald: like sort of tracks everything. Yeah. So that

[00:02:26] Chelsey Donn: you export that and then have all your, oh my God, that's so nice.

[00:02:30] Trey Gerrald: also obviously like tries to default you to like Intuit TurboTax or whatever.

Cuz Intuit owns it now. So it's like, but we have our own accountant and you know David, because he owns his own business, he ha he like does quarterly taxes like he. He keeps up with his accountant throughout the year so that it's not so overwhelming. And then I'm over here like, uh, um, anyway, that's basically what the most of my week has been.

'I am A'. Little bit parched over here. So I'm just gonna take A', quick swig out of

[00:03:02] Chelsey Donn: Yay. 'I Know 'I saw another water bottle with you and 'I was like, did Trey not? So guys, 'I did it. You know, Trey and 'I have A' million water bottles, but 'I sent him another one as A' birthday gift that says R Q T. It's engrave.

[00:03:16] Trey Gerrald: It's very sleek.

[00:03:17] Chelsey Donn: It's A', very sleek. It's black and it's, the company is called Lark with A'. Q L A'.

R Q 'I. Believe they were on Shark Tank. You know 'I Love A' Shark Tank product. But the whole shtick of the water bottle is that. It's self-cleaning.

[00:03:31] Trey Gerrald: It's like A', A' light, A' blue light, and it purifies your water for you. It was very interesting to be charging my water bottle. 'I was like, oh, 'I can't wait for this. Anyway, I've had it for A' while, but 'I haven't shared it on the show yet.

[00:03:43] Chelsey Donn: Love, love, love. Also 'I. Don't know if we wanna jump right into it right now, but 'I also sent cuz you know, we're just coming off of Happy Birthday, A' Little late, um, which Trey is like so happy about that song. But did you try The Thick?

[00:03:57] Trey Gerrald: Oh my god, we never talked about it. Oh yeah. I've been using it as bubble bath when 'I take my bath.

[00:04:03] Chelsey Donn: Oh, okay. Wait, that's what it, how it's been relegated at this point.

[00:04:07] Trey Gerrald: 'I haven't actually used it as A' body wash

[00:04:09] Chelsey Donn: is it thick?

[00:04:10] Trey Gerrald: you know, 'I feel like, you know what's surprising is like the A', cuz I've used it multiple times at this point and like as it's getting lower in the bottle.

Like the plastic that no longer is like full, feels like cheaper, which is very interesting. Like 'I actually thought it would be A' thicker plastic. So that was surprising. Up top everyone on Patreon ChelseyBD is showing the camera that she has the same bottle

[00:04:35] Chelsey Donn: 'I. Have Rq

[00:04:36] Trey Gerrald: and yeah, 'I 'I 'I wouldn't write home about A' 'I.

It's, it, it does feel, um, what's that word, that 'I always have A' problem with.

[00:04:45] Chelsey Donn: viscus or something vis the viscosity

[00:04:48] Trey Gerrald: the viscosity is very thick. Like it, it does sort of like if you tilt the clear bottle, it's sort of, it is sort of like syrup. Like you can see that it's like thick and whatever, but 'I don't know. 'I don't know if 'I would write home about it, but 'I enjoy the scent,

[00:05:02] Chelsey Donn: Okay. Everybody seems to enjoy the scent. That seems to be the consensus on this product, so at least it smells good. Right? The review that we read was like, buy the perfume for the smell, right?

[00:05:13] Trey Gerrald: Exactly.

[00:05:14] Chelsey Donn: But anyway, now we are back. It's no longer Trey's birthday. I'm in the clear 'I, got all the gifts out, 'I did all the stuff.

[00:05:23] Trey Gerrald: Yes. Thank you. It was very exciting. 'I actually got the water bottle before my birthday, but 'I didn't open it until after my birthday. Cause 'I didn't want to open it early. So yes, in the real life timeline,

[00:05:36] Chelsey Donn: Yes. Yay.

[00:05:38] Trey Gerrald: wait, so how has your week been? Are you doing taxes? What's.

[00:05:41] Chelsey Donn: I'm not doing tax. 'I mean. 'I need to be doing taxes. It's on the short list. I've just been having so many 'I. Gotta A' Lodge right into the Complaint, if that's okay. Trey. Cuz it's just this is where we are.

[00:05:51] VOICEOVER: Lodge, A', Complaint.

[00:05:52] Chelsey Donn: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. So 'I, don't think that Mercury is in retrograde. 'I know. We like to blame that for the technology thing.

But 'I have been having A' week with A' technology. First, my computer just decided to stop working. Just didn't turn on. Had to deal with that at the Apple store. That was A' Total nightmare. They had to delete everything from my computer. It's fine. Most stuff lives in the cloud anyway, so I'm not like as stressed as 'I would be back in the day about that part of it, but like just an inconvenience having to schlep over to the Apple store and deal with that.

And then my phone stopped working. I'd be on A' call, and then the screen would just turn black. So there's like no way for me to end the call or know if you're still on the phone. So it's happening with like clients and 'I don't even know if they hung up the phone. You know what 'I mean? So if they're still listening to me, how awkward and terrible.

And I'm pretty diligent usually about going into the Verizon store to switch out my phone, but I've been so busy that 'I was like, you know what? It's fine. I'm just gonna have them send it to me in the mail. I'm smart enough to go through the steps on my own. So phone comes in the mail. 'I ended up not getting home from work until like after. So 'I came in, but like, you know, you get A' new phone, you're all excited about it, like it's A'. Big thing. Followed all the instructions to A' tape. Everything was going great. Got to the point where like the iPhone was making me update the software. No big deal. 'I was like, we're in the clear, we're good.

Get to the phone part. And I'm like, let me just make A' phone call to make sure that the calls are working. 'I called Review That Review hotline, like A' million times actually. , it said, you know, this is Verizon. You cannot make A' call. So 'I was like, this is so weird. Like 'I flashed all the colors. Like everything was A'.

Green light. Green light, like what's going on. So 'I signed into my Verizon account and my account has been suspended, okay? Which means that 'I don't have A' cell phone, 'I don't have an Apple watch, 'I don't have any way for anyone to contact me. My phone number was like erased as if it doesn't exist and Verizon is closed.

So 'I was like trying to text with the Verizon 24 7 support, who were lovely, by the way, very nice people, but they couldn't end up helping me even though we were going back and forth. Meanwhile, fast forward 6:00 AM I'm still up.

[00:08:12] Trey Gerrald: oh my gosh,

[00:08:13] Chelsey Donn: Finally, the rise fraud department opens up. So 'I call, she says to me, oh, 'I, see?

'I. See what the problem is? Your phone is marked as stolen. Your new phone is marked as stolen. And 'I was like, okay, hold up. This is the fraud department. Clearly it's not stolen. 'I have A' receipt. 'I have A' pdf, 'I have A' charge on my credit card, like it's on my Verizon account. 'I ordered it from Verizon.

Like there's like no like element. How is this stolen? And she's like, 'I don't know. Like that's the way it's marked. 'I can switch you back to your old phone, but just so you know, like it's marked as like it's A' stolen item or whatever, so it's probably gonna happen again. And I'm like, listen to me, you are the fraud department.

Like this is your job. Okay? On my end, 'I can go to my Verizon and see that 'I made this purchase. 'I can see on my credit card that everything went through and it was paid for. What do you like? You can't change it. Like, you can't say Just kidding. It's not A' stolen phone. Everything's all good. What, like what is the fraud department for?

[00:09:13] Trey Gerrald: Wait, is this Verizon or is this Apple,

[00:09:15] Chelsey Donn: This is Verizon.

[00:09:17] Trey Gerrald: So what was the person proposing that you send it back to? A', Verizon, A' person.

[00:09:21] Chelsey Donn: They were proposing that 'I switched back to my old phone. Then go into an Apple store with this phone that is apparently marked stolen and all of my evidence that I've purchased this phone, and then maybe switch out to A' new phone. That was like the option that she was giving me at 7:00 AM after 'I had like been through this for many, many hours.

What A' Nightmare. And then I'm like, she's like, okay, I've done it. So 'I go on my old phone while she's there and I'm trying to make calls, trying to call the Review That Review hotline and still calls aren't going through. So she's like, I'll connect you to technical support 'I like Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile, thank goodness for the chat support person, cuz 'I said to her, she was like, miss ChelseyBD, miss ChelseyBD 'I. Just wanna do whatever 'I can to make you happy. I'm like, you're an angel, but can you please stand by while I'm doing these phone calls? Whatever. So she stood by the whole time, thank goodness.

Okay. Goes to connecting A' tactical sport. Boom. Hangs up on me. Yeah.

[00:10:17] Trey Gerrald: Oh, that's happened to me before. Too

[00:10:19] Chelsey Donn: So then 'I, thank goodness, still had the chat support lady on told her what happened. She was like, do me A' favor, try your new phone. So 'I tried my new phone and calls, started working on my new phone. So 'I don't know what happened, but 'I guess she like the like, Fraud woman did, did manage to like not do it, but 'I, 'I, 'I.

'I, like 'I. Really 'I to this day. 'I don't understand what happened yesterday. 'I went there cuz 'I was paranoid cuz the woman said to me on the phone, it's gonna happen again. It's marked as stolen and Verizon said it. It's definitely not marked as stolen. It definitely shows that 'I purchased it. The serial numbers match.

They can't see anything on their end. Everything looks good in hunky dory. So I've been using the. As of now, and it seems to be okay, but like my relationship with this new phone has really been hindered. Like every time 'I look at it now, 'I. Think about the fact that 'I lost A', tremendous amount of sleep over this thing.

And really 'I. Guess the Complaint. The very long-winded Complaint is when you do something late at night that you think, ah, easy little nothing, just gonna do A'. Quick little thing. 'I go to bed and it turns into like A' whole seven hour debacle. Oh

[00:11:30] Trey Gerrald: that's crazy. That's A' School Day.

[00:11:32] Chelsey Donn: That's A' School day. 'I did like A' full long work shift, got home and did another full long work shift.

[00:11:38] Trey Gerrald: Mm-hmm.

[00:11:39] Chelsey Donn: What A' pain. I've never dealt with anything like that. 'I will never, ever again order A' phone to come to my house. 'I will never not get A' phone at Verizon. Or if 'I choose to change plans wherever that is, 'I choose to go. 'I will never not go into the store.

[00:11:54] Trey Gerrald: That's crazy. I'm sorry that happened. That is such A' orde.

[00:11:58] Chelsey Donn: Yes. It was definitely an ordeal.

And also the stolen, it just like doesn't make any sense, but whatever. Whatever 'I. Wanna A', shout out to Jennifer work who works the late shift of Verizon staying with me the whole time. Really amazing. So 'I.

[00:12:11] Trey Gerrald: Miss ChelseyBD.

[00:12:13] Chelsey Donn: Miss ChelseyBD, it does have A' smile on her face now that, um, I've gotten to the other end of it and I've caught up on A', little bit more sleep.

So that's my long-winded Complaint. Had to get it off my chest for all you guys to hear. Just like go to the store and do it. Don't try to be A' hero, you know?

[00:12:31] Trey Gerrald: That's so obnoxious. 'I wonder and 'I wonder what that glitch was with the old phone too. Like it's just we don't understand what these little like mini devices, like it's just so many things can happen and you drop it once and it shatters and then you drop another time and it's like nothing happened.

[00:12:45] Chelsey Donn: Totally. That's my Complaint. Trey. Let's move on to you. How was your week? Do you have anything to complain about?

[00:12:52] Trey Gerrald: 'I want to Lodge A Complaint against hotels, ratio of decaf coffee versus caffeinated coffee. When it comes to hotel room coffee makers,

[00:13:05] Chelsey Donn: Interesting.

[00:13:06] Trey Gerrald: they literally ChelseyBD. When we checked in my hotel, coffee pot came with one regular and two decaf.

[00:13:15] Chelsey Donn: Hmm.

[00:13:15] Trey Gerrald: How many decaf coffee drinkers are there out in the world? How many coffee drinkers are there out in the world that check into hotel rooms and need to drink as much coffee as someone who needs it for caffeine?

This is like, uh, let's have some fake cigarettes in every single room and we'll give you one real cigarette and two fake cigarettes. It doesn't make any sense to me this. All the

[00:13:39] Chelsey Donn: 'I was gonna

[00:13:40] Trey Gerrald: it occurred to me and 'I literally complain every week on my podcast. Why haven't 'I complained about this? 'I? Don't 'I 'I understand having A' variety, but why is the variety unbalanced in the opposite way?

People who want A' decaf coffee. Generally want that like at nighttime or like they have something else going on in their life, but like they're not dependent on the caffeine of coffee. So why are you gonna have double the amount A' of an offering in this hotel room where I'm gonna have and 'I? What 'I do is 'I always call housekeeping and 'I say, can you please bring me an excess amount? Of caffeinated coffee pods, but it's so obnoxious cuz you're, I'm at Atlantic City 'I. Don't wanna go down and like pay $4 for A' coffee at the Starbucks cuz I'm in A' hotel room and you can just give me the complimentary coffee. 'I 'I. Just don't understand the logic behind two decafs and one regular.

Please explain that to me and make it make sense. It doesn't make sense to me. Yes, have options, but like why would you have two decafs and one regular?

[00:14:43] Chelsey Donn: Yeah. 'I. Don't know. This is interesting. So I'm not A' big. Normally 'I don't drink coffee, so this isn't something that 'I would notice at A' Hotel. 'I hearing it sounds freaking bizarre, but you're telling me that like when you go to A' Hotel in the regular, this is it. Like there's A' disproportionate ratio of decaf to caffeinated.

Like any hotel you go.

[00:15:07] Trey Gerrald: It's usually an equal amount,

[00:15:09] Chelsey Donn: Okay, because 'I, the only thing 'I could think of is like, did the Borgata just like, or, or like run low on their caffeinated coffee? And so they're just like, nobody's drinking the fricking decaf. So the decaf has probably been in the room since the hotel opened and you know, they're running low on the other one.

So they're being cheap with. Regular coffee because they just don't have enough in stock. Like that's the only explanation that 'I could think of. Cuz it really, there is no logic. But it's funny to me how we all have those things. Like for me, 'I have really long hair so there's never enough shampoo and conditioner.

[00:15:47] Trey Gerrald: Oh, interesting.

[00:15:48] Chelsey Donn: There's never enough. So like whenever the, if 'I get someone to help me up with my bags and they'll, is there anything else you need? I'm like, you know what? I'm gonna need more shampoo, conditioner, and probably more towels like 'I, 'I. Just know that off the bat. So those are things that 'I 'I will always request and tip for up top.

So it 'I, it's interesting that 'I guess everybody has their own little thing when they go into A' hotel room that it's like, there's never enough of this.

[00:16:15] Trey Gerrald: Well, that's also an interesting point cuz it's, it would be like finding two little mini conditioners and one shamp.

[00:16:21] Chelsey Donn: exactly

[00:16:22] Trey Gerrald: no sense Also to me, why is it even normally equal? Like don't you think you're going to be restocking the caffeine more than the decaf? So just put more caffeine because either the guest is gonna use it or they're not.

So if you overstock it, you're creating less work in the future. I'm mad. I'm mad. It's frustrating when you look and there's two decaf,

[00:16:45] Chelsey Donn: 'I know.

[00:16:45] Trey Gerrald: what? This is not A' decaf culture. It's A' calf culture.

[00:16:49] Chelsey Donn: 'I. Do 'I. 'I actually do have A' friend who 'I met recently that drinks decaf coffee. 'I like 'I. Personally. 'I.

[00:16:56] Trey Gerrald: Well, they can go to hell. They're not on

[00:16:58] Chelsey Donn: you. I'm with you. They're not on the show. I'm just saying. I'm with, they're the first person in my life that I've met That's like 'I drink decaf coffee. Because I'm, I'm like, why would 'I, like 'I just wouldn't drink coffee?

Like I'm not A' huge coffee drinker. 'I also can't handle huge amounts of acid and huge amounts of caffeine. So 'I limit how much coffee intake 'I have for that reason. But what?

[00:17:23] Trey Gerrald: y my mother-in-law is similar and you know who makes an amazing low acidity coffee is Trader Joe's.

[00:17:31] Chelsey Donn: Oh, really? Oh, that's good to know. Anyway, Trey added to the leisure. 'I mean 'I. Hear you. That's annoying. 'I. Don't know who these decaf people are, but they can go.

[00:17:42] Trey Gerrald: 'I mean it's A' whole nother like sub-bullet now. Because I'm like, anytime you're at A' restaurant and they're like, can 'I have A', A', decaf? It's like, cuz 'I can't have caffeine right now. 'I never sleep. It's like the most annoying conversation, like, shut up. Anyway, 'I.

[00:18:00] Chelsey Donn: Love you. 'I. Love you 'I.

[00:18:01] Trey Gerrald: 'I in A'. I'm really mad about it.

Like I'm really mad, like in telling you the story, I'm, I'm

[00:18:05] Chelsey Donn: you're getting more angry. Like sometimes it's like you get it off your chest and you feel better. It sounds like you're full of rage, but 'I think that that's A' good thing because maybe that will make you A' more compassionate listener to whatever it is that's coming up with this online review that 'I can't wait to hear about.

[00:18:20] Trey Gerrald: That's very optimistic of you. Yeah. Let's do it. Let's jump into some online reviews.

[00:18:26] VOICEOVER: Review, That, Review.

We do have half crown cards available, but so they don't get ha used all the time, but maybe today's the day. This is A' very regal process that we like to call

[00:19:39] VOICEOVER: Hi. Welcome to Chili's.

[00:19:41] Chelsey Donn: it was maybe like A' once A' month thing. What is that

[00:19:44] Trey Gerrald: Do you know that meme?

[00:19:45] VOICEOVER: Hi. Welcome to Chili's.

[00:19:47] Chelsey Donn: Don't think so. Is this something 'I

[00:19:48] Trey Gerrald: Oh my God. It's, it's A' very famous vine. And then it like, it became very like viral and now it's even like A' sound effect that people use on TikTok and 'I. In researching 'I found out that the Viner has actually passed away. He

[00:20:01] Chelsey Donn: Oh no.

[00:20:02] Trey Gerrald: which is very sad, but his memory lives

[00:20:05] Chelsey Donn: Welcome to

[00:20:06] VOICEOVER: Hi. Welcome to Chili.

[00:20:08] Trey Gerrald: he like, . It's like A' six second Vine, and he walks into his bathroom and he's like just wearing A', like boxer briefs and for whatever reason he's like, hi, welcome to Shelley's. But then it like has, you know, it's like the cat fighting with the real housewife. Like it's become like A' viral thing. You know what I'm talking about?

You know that one?

[00:20:27] Chelsey Donn: 'I. Think so.

[00:20:29] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. Okay. All right. Well anyway, so all of that is to say today, 'I have this one star Yelp review on Chili's.

[00:20:36] VOICEOVER: Hi. Chilies.

[00:20:38] Chelsey Donn: Okay. 'I

[00:20:39] Trey Gerrald: so this is written by Karen w and 'I found this literally in October of the year we started this podcast. So 'I, don't remember what Chili's this is from 'I. Don't know where it is in the world or whatever,

[00:20:52] Chelsey Donn: I'll allow

[00:20:53] Trey Gerrald: here we go.

So this is Karen W's one star review. Here we

[00:20:57] Chelsey Donn: What's here? Okay.

[00:20:59] Trey Gerrald: I'll never come back. It's cold as hell. 'I. Ask for A' strawberry Margarita. They gave me water. The menu sucks. Drip C bad. Did 'I mention how cold this place is? The streak is hard as hell, but top it off. The manager took our order for exclamation marks.


[00:21:27] Chelsey Donn: What.

[00:21:28] Trey Gerrald: Go by to your cave office. When taking our order, he said he me, 'I Loom at the menu. When he tried to show us something, 'I knew he was off, but never again. I'm done. Sorry. Chilly and Adam. 10 exclamation marks. 12. Exclamation mark. Exclamation mark. Exclamation mark. Then when 'I confronted him, all 'I heard from his eyes was whatever. And the skeleton waitress was such A', smart A' never again. The couple next to us told us about their experiences, which was horrible as well. All they had was drinks. Wish we had spoken to them before. We order my first and last time they messed up on our bill. Wow. Wow. Wow.

[00:22:26] Chelsey Donn: Wow. Wow, wow. Yip.

[00:22:30] Trey Gerrald: They've also included two images, just so you can, can know. One literally looks like, like A' V8 drink. I'm guessing it's probably the strawberry margarita that they say they didn't get. And then the other picture is like mashed potatoes with A', lot of cheese on them, and then what appears to be an outrageously well done steak

[00:22:51] Chelsey Donn: Okay. Wow. All right. A' lot happening here. Here's my like biggest issue and this is like where 'I want to call in our listeners guys, if you know anybody named Karen who is not A', Karen 'I, really like wanna interview A' Karen on our show. That's super cool because it just upsets me on behalf of the Karen's out there that are probably lovely that we have so many Karen's named Karen that are Karen's.

[00:23:16] Trey Gerrald: Yeah.

[00:23:17] Chelsey Donn: This is such A' Karen example, down to the manager. Took our order. Well, Karen, what's the problem? Why is that an issue? Why is it A' problem that the manager's taking your order? Maybe they were busy, so the manager needed to come out, was the manager. Scolding you like 'I, don't, 'I. Don't even understand that whole argument of why they need to go back into their cave and they can't be on the floor taking orders.

'I mean you've worked at restaurants before. If it got really busy, is there A' world in which the manager might come out and you know, help out?

[00:23:52] Trey Gerrald: If they're A', good manager.

[00:23:53] Chelsey Donn: If they're A', good manager. Right? So like 'I don't really understand the Complaint there. Also, my goodness, the spelling 'I mean. Karen must have, she must have won every spelling bee, huh?

That she ever entered in. No. This is probably one of the most egregious crimes against spelling we've seen on the show. 'I mean should we go through them? Because some of them 'I feel like 'I don't even, 'I don't even know what was, what was being said.

[00:24:20] Trey Gerrald: Well, 'I will say, The lack of punctuation is like really extreme except for like the exclamation marks and my favorite typo is, The number of exclamation marks after the name Adam, who like 'I can only assume is the name of the manager. But 'I think that 12 is like their finger slipped off of the shift button when, cuz it's 10 exclamation marks 12, and then four more exclamation marks.

So 'I think that the 12 is actually like their finger came off of the shift when they were doing exclamation mark.

[00:24:57] Chelsey Donn: 'I. Don't know what the hell it is, but it's, it's like this

[00:25:00] Trey Gerrald: No. Do you understand that? Like, cuz the exclamation mark is one,

[00:25:04] Chelsey Donn: yeah,

[00:25:06] Trey Gerrald: so you have to push shift one to make an exclamation mark,

[00:25:09] Chelsey Donn: you don't have to make

[00:25:10] Trey Gerrald: type an exclamation mark on your laptop right now.

[00:25:13] Chelsey Donn: oh yeah. 'I guess you do have to do shift one. Yeah.

[00:25:16] Trey Gerrald: Right? So 'I think that it

[00:25:18] Chelsey Donn: shift one and then there's A' bunch of.

[00:25:21] Trey Gerrald: no, it's A', bunch of exclamation marks and then it's randomly 12 and then it's more exclamation.

[00:25:26] Chelsey Donn: like the number 12.

[00:25:27] Trey Gerrald: Yes. 'I. Think that they like, yes, the le The numbers. The numbers one, two.

[00:25:31] Chelsey Donn: 'I always thought you meant randomly. 12 more exclamation. Oh, okay. Okay. This makes sense.

[00:25:35] Trey Gerrald: No, it's the number 12.

[00:25:37] Chelsey Donn: okay. That's like the least of our concerns with this. All right.

[00:25:40] Trey Gerrald: 'I know, but it's my favorite

[00:25:42] Chelsey Donn: Streak as hard as hell is steak as hard as

[00:25:45] Trey Gerrald: Steak. Yeah. Also drips. Is drinks bad?

[00:25:50] Chelsey Donn: 'I wrote that. Dribs. Yeah. Dribs bad. Then there's one 'I.

Really? 'I need your help with this one. So this was he, me, 'I. 'I Loom.

[00:25:59] Trey Gerrald: Right. Well, they say go by to your cave office. 'I think they meant back. And then it says, when taking our order, he said he, me or Loom. So I'm thinking he needed to look at the menu. Maybe he,

[00:26:14] Chelsey Donn: or A'. Look, he mirror A'

[00:26:16] Trey Gerrald: 'I Loom.

[00:26:17] Chelsey Donn: He mirror A'

[00:26:18] Trey Gerrald: he, maybe it's, I'm trying 'I looking at A' keyboard.

[00:26:21] Chelsey Donn: He mirror A' Loom.

[00:26:22] Trey Gerrald: Me, it's me, ER. So 'I think that might be need.

'I. Think they meant to say need. He need. Look at the menu. When he tried to show us something, 'I knew he was off,

[00:26:35] Chelsey Donn: Oh, okay.

[00:26:37] Trey Gerrald: but never again. I'm done. What also, it's funny to say chili. Sorry. Chili

[00:26:42] Chelsey Donn: God. And also the fact that they were complaining that it was so cold in A' place called Chili's.

[00:26:48] Trey Gerrald: No 'I 'I know

[00:26:49] Chelsey Donn: about

[00:26:50] Trey Gerrald: Wait, that's funny.

[00:26:52] Chelsey Donn: yeah,

[00:26:53] Trey Gerrald: 'I was gonna say, it's funny to say that it's as cold as hell, which we always say on this podcast, hell is hot

[00:26:59] Chelsey Donn: Right. But also it's called Chili's Burr

[00:27:04] Trey Gerrald: Wait, and then the skeleton waitress, do you think that that means they're anorexic or do you think that means that they're so cold cuz it's A' skeleton?

[00:27:11] Chelsey Donn: Oh, can you read me that again? 'I Think. 'I missed it. Cause 'I was taking notes.

[00:27:14] Trey Gerrald: Oh, it says, then 'I confronted him. All 'I heard from his eyes was whatever, and the skeleton waitress was A'. Smart A',

[00:27:22] Chelsey Donn: Skeleton waitress.

[00:27:24] Trey Gerrald: What does that mean?

[00:27:25] Chelsey Donn: know what

[00:27:26] Trey Gerrald: Skeleton

[00:27:27] Chelsey Donn: be A' must be A' comment on weight.

[00:27:31] Trey Gerrald: Wait. That's what 'I think as well.

[00:27:32] Chelsey Donn: thin. This is just so weird. 'I mean the Karen. Can we, oh my God. It's A' Karen again, because 'I was just, oh, my Goding. It's A', Karen.

[00:27:42] VOICEOVER: my God, it's A'.

[00:27:43] Chelsey Donn: The whole time. And the re, the way that 'I defined A' Karen is where's the real Complaint here?

Because it's so, even if there is A', real Complaint here, and this is commonly the case with Karen's, it's so lost in all the ish goss of everything else that you're saying, that 'I don't even know what your Complaint is, is your Complaint that the food is bad?

[00:28:04] Trey Gerrald: or that it's cold or that the manager was A' jerk, or that the waitress was A' smart ass,

[00:28:09] Chelsey Donn: yeah, 'I

[00:28:10] Trey Gerrald: or that the manager didn't know the menu.

[00:28:13] Chelsey Donn: Right. Like it's just organized in such A' way that I'm like, 'I, don't really understand what you're complaining about. You're not making any sense what is happening.

[00:28:21] Trey Gerrald: Well, that is A' really interesting point here because literally every single sentence is addressing A'. Different thing that's wrong,

[00:28:29] Chelsey Donn: Exactly. So like 'I don't stay long enough in any of the arguments to be like, oh, 'I trust this narrator. I'm like, 'I, have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. Karen 'I have completely lost any. Ground 'I can't even say if this is A' fluke or if this is common. 'I 'I think you're being truthful and 'I can't Assess the value of this because it's so lost in translation or lack thereof.

[00:28:56] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, 'I, for whatever reason, it lands on me for the very first sentence to be. I'll never come back. I'm already sort of like, oh God, like 'I. For whatever reason, it's like the opposite of A' compliment sandwich. I'm an instantly like, oh God, like I'm already at odds with you cuz 'I feel like you're being dramatic.

So, but then to follow that with A' comma that says it's cold as hell. Wait, what? Like you're never coming back cuz it's cold. Like bring A' sweater

[00:29:26] Chelsey Donn: Yeah, exactly.

[00:29:28] Trey Gerrald: and then to say 'I asked for A' margarita and they gave me water. Like, how's that? A' Complaint. Sometimes people like want water in addition to their alcohol and then to say the menu sucks, like the drinks.

What 'I understand. Okay. If the steak is hard, what does that mean? Like are you saying it's overcooked

[00:29:47] Chelsey Donn: 'I would think overcooked cuz like as you cook it, it gets tougher. But again, like okay, so if that's A' legitimate Complaint, which it is like if, if if 'I order A' steak medium and it comes well done, that's A' legitimate Complaint. But it's not, the message isn't being delivered in A' way. That's clear enough for me to even.

Does Karen have A' leg to stand on here? If Karen did come at it like, you know what, it was cold. They messed up my drink. Then they overcooked my steak. It was like hard as A'

[00:30:14] Trey Gerrald: they messed up the bill

[00:30:15] Chelsey Donn: they messed up A' bill. Like, yeah, okay. All of that is within this, but it's, I'm sorry, Karen, but you're A' shady 'I mean you're calling one of the waiters, A' skeleton.

You're telling the manager to go back to their cave 'I mean you're rude. They're A' jerk. You're A' jerk.

[00:30:32] Trey Gerrald: but there's no supporting evidence about why the manager was A'

[00:30:35] Chelsey Donn: That's what 'I

[00:30:36] Trey Gerrald: or why the skeleton waitress is A' smart A'. They also don't say, they don't elaborate what they messed up on the bill. Also, you later took A' picture of what I'm assuming is the strawberry margarita,

[00:30:48] Chelsey Donn: What you obviously got and you Yeah. Yeah. No, I'm sorry Karen. I'm mad 'I. Just every single time we bring in A', Karen 'I, think this is gonna be A' the week that the Karen is gonna defy the odds. And it's not this week.

[00:31:04] Trey Gerrald: 'I know 'I mean. If 'I were to look at like the unique information, I'm really hearing that it's cold. Like maybe if 'I was gonna come to this Chili's, 'I would know to

[00:31:13] Chelsey Donn: Bring A' jacket

[00:31:14] Trey Gerrald: light jacket. Yeah.

[00:31:15] Chelsey Donn: 'I. Just think going to A' chili's and having it be cold is almost like kitchy and funny and cute. Okay.

[00:31:23] Trey Gerrald: Well, also temperature is so subjective. And then my next question here, like we were talking about the steak being overcooked. Like how many times in an evening do you think that there's A' conversation at A' restaurant about the temperature preparation of A' steak? Like, please give us more supporting evidence like you wanted it cooked this way, it came out this way.

You asked for it to be recook and there was an, is like 'I feel like A' recook on A' steak is not that, like, isn't that outrageous? Like, did you say like, we had seven recook, like it just doesn't make any sense. What do you mean that it's hard and the picture of the steak like makes, gives the impression to me that they ordered it well done and then were upset that it was hard.

So then that also makes me have another feeling about Karen.

[00:32:08] Chelsey Donn: Yeah. Like Karen didn't even need to ask for the manager. Karen was already getting the manager as their server. Karen could have easily said, you know what? Steak's overcooked, take it off the bill or give me A' new one, or whatever it is, and it could probably have been accomplished. 'I. Just think that Karen seems like the kind of person that really loves.

To complain. Really loves to think that the world is against them, is gonna find evidence in anything around them that supports their negative point of view, including the table that just got drinks. How do you know that they just got drinks? Because the food, they think the food is terrible. Maybe they just got drinks

[00:32:49] Trey Gerrald: Well, it says they told us

[00:32:50] Chelsey Donn: oh, they, oh they did?

[00:32:52] Trey Gerrald: never again. The couple next to us told us about their experiences, which was horrible as well. All they had was drinks. Wish we had spoken to them before. We order

[00:33:01] Chelsey Donn: Okay. You know what? Well, that's 'I still stand to the same point. 'I think Karen will attract other Karen's like 'I. Think Karen is keeping their eyes open for anyone around them that's gonna substantiate their story.

[00:33:15] Trey Gerrald: It's so funny cuz that's how 'I felt at the end of the laser tag review that 'I, like, of course she's gonna go find the person to confirm that they thought it smelled bad too, but like, this reminds me

[00:33:28] Chelsey Donn: But then like in that one, in that one at least it was like, then we saw pictures of the space and it was like, okay, it did look kind of dingy. In this case, it's like we're showing pictures that are supporting the fact that we got the drink that we said we didn't get. Like what are these pictures doing?

[00:33:45] Trey Gerrald: This reminds me of A' A' thing that was going around on Instagram that 'I put on my story. 'I need to find it again. But it's so funny that they're like, I'll never come back, and they end with my first and last time. It's like, well, do you think that like they're gonna be upset about that? You sound horrible.

[00:34:01] Chelsey Donn: You sound like you are such A' bad. They're probably like, thank goodness she's

[00:34:04] Trey Gerrald: Like, thank God. Right.

[00:34:08] Chelsey Donn: Hi.

[00:34:09] Trey Gerrald: that they're being truthful at all or like 'I It just like, it seems like their barometer is so off that like 'I can't trust anything.

[00:34:17] Chelsey Donn: Yeah, 'I. Mean 'I. Think that, and, and, and by that same measure, like 'I can't ascertain whether or not this is common or A' fluke, even though they're saying that they have A' couple next to them who are in agreement that the food is bad. 'I don't know. 'I used. Did you ever eat at Chili's growing up?

[00:34:33] Trey Gerrald: Oh my God, yes. 'I

[00:34:34] Chelsey Donn: Like you're like A' chain restaurant sort of Queen, uh, if you will, 'I, mean 'I eat at Chili's all the time.

Do you recall the food being any worse than any other equivalent restaurant?

[00:34:45] Trey Gerrald: Well, okay then this goes along with this typical flute common conversation. Cuz to

[00:34:50] Chelsey Donn: what 'I mean. Yeah,

[00:34:51] Trey Gerrald: 'I feel like there is, and 'I have an affinity 'I mean 'I am A' person that like is happy to go to Burger King and 'I feel A' certain way when it's A' tablecloth restaurant like 'I, like 'I don't feel as comfortable in A' tablecloth restaurant.

But 'I can recognize that there are different standards per, it's like when you look at A' Zagget rating and there's A' different number of money signs, like you're gonna have A'. Experience. Wait, did 'I say it

[00:35:17] Chelsey Donn: No, 'I mean That's how 'I said it. But I'm saying like, remember that? Cuz 'I feel like that was sort of like pre Yelp, pre-internet when used to get the

[00:35:25] Trey Gerrald: Sure, but my point there is like, you know, without making A' grandiose, overgeneralized sweeping statement here, 'I do feel that Chili's, Applebee's, like these neighborhood type restaurant pub situations are very corporate and they're like first time jobs for. Teenage people and people in college. It's like we know that the, there's A' certain kind of level to the cuisine.

You know, to me, 'I feel like there's an expectation of what you're gonna get when you go to these type places. And 'I am A' person that loves to frequent these kinds of places. It's like, this is not A', five

[00:36:03] Chelsey Donn: And no offense to Chili's, but like, I'm not getting A' steak personally.

[00:36:09] Trey Gerrald: 'I.

[00:36:10] Chelsey Donn: You know what 'I mean?

[00:36:11] Trey Gerrald: you gonna get the baby Mac ribs?

[00:36:13] Chelsey Donn: 'I would if, if 'I did eat ribs, 'I would get the baby back ribs because that's what they're known for. If 'I was gonna go myself, 'I would probably get A' burger, A' chicken, Caesar salad. 'I would get like the low hanging.

This kind of restaurant food. 'I think it is unusual to go to these kind of more chain restaurants and go for like the steak unless you're going outback or something like that. And, and leave being. Outback's Steakhouse and leave being pleased like you're setting yourself up to fail, Karen, by going to Chili's order the chili For Christ's sake, 'I mean get something that is within the wheelhouse of this restaurant.

'I don't know that The impact of this review is high in the sense that if 'I was deciding whether or not 'I was gonna go to these, this chili. Chili's and 'I read Karen's review. Would 'I not go because it's going to be A', little bit cold and 'I like, what else is the Complaint? The manager might be my server.


[00:37:16] Trey Gerrald: To me, it just really feels like 'I. Don't know why it is, and maybe 'I am like putting some bias on Karen here, but when. Everything is wrong. Like for whatever reason, there's just no context to perceive Karen in any other way than being A' complaining person. Like everything is so exclamation marked.

Everything is so like un attention paid that it just feels. A' rambling, angry person that has lost any sort of grounding to make this have any value, like 'I, 'I. Don't know how to like, uh, 'I, don't know how to like, communicate it in A' way for Karen to maybe hear like how you could be more persuasive.

This is literally just like, ugh. What?

[00:38:08] Chelsey Donn: mean 'I. Think it's like stick to your point and substantiate your arguments. Don't just like make these sweeping comments, you know? And these also like biting critiques of the skeleton waitress and the manager that should go to their cave. Because I'm no longer hearing you, Karen. I'm just hearing these things that you're saying and now within the context of you sort of being shady, 'I am.

Apt to believe what you have to say. That's what it comes down to. You know, we talk about this all the time about the compliment sandwich and how effective it is, but it just lets you know, okay, this isn't somebody that goes through life looking for the shitty, you know, the shit sandwich in every situation because they went into it optimistic or they really liked the tablecloth.

'I don't know, like there's something. That we liked about this place. So this is A' person that is capable of liking things in the situation of Karen here. 'I don't know that this is like someone who is capable of liking things.

[00:39:12] Trey Gerrald: 'I know it really is like almost, well, 'I 'I feel like the 'I don't, 'I 'I would not call this A' deal breaker. And, but the impact is almost like it's not negative or positive. I'm just sort of like, 'I need to next.

[00:39:27] Chelsey Donn: 'I think that like in terms of negative reviews, Chili's is getting off on this one. Like they're not, this is not A'. Ding towards chili.

[00:39:36] Trey Gerrald: except 'I do hear that it's cold. 'I

[00:39:38] Chelsey Donn: cares if that's the worst thing? 'I mean it's cold at the movie theater, right? Like if that's the worst thing about this restaurant is that it is A', little bit cold, whatever, get A' sweater, 'I.

Don't know what to tell you. Like that's to 'I mean. Again, 'I don't mind being A'. Little cold. So maybe that's my own personal bias, but 'I don't think that that's A'. Huge deal breaker. Are you not gonna go to A' restaurant? Cause it's cold.

[00:40:04] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. I'm really, and, and 'I really am confused about the order in which A', the litany is presented. I'm wondering if what happened is they were upset about the strawberry margarita, so then the server was like, The manager has to take over the

[00:40:20] Chelsey Donn: Yes. That's what

[00:40:21] Trey Gerrald: And then they got the steak, and then the steak was wrong.

Like it was hard. Like,

[00:40:25] Chelsey Donn: and the manager's like dealing with them and managing them the whole time and they're the, the most like difficult table ever and everybody is probably ignoring them except for these other two Karens that are next to them being like, 'I know, isn't the food terrible? Cuz you're gonna always have those people that are gonna make these Karens think that they're right.

I'm mad

[00:40:46] Trey Gerrald: And what is like the, like, what else do you expect? Like 'I mean? 'I guess like the customer is always right. That's A' general conversation here. But when 'I confronted him, all 'I heard from his eyes was whatever. Okay, well

[00:40:59] Chelsey Donn: A'. And you heard from his eyes. That's an interesting,

[00:41:02] Trey Gerrald: 'I know, it doesn't make

[00:41:03] Chelsey Donn: an interesting, maybe you saw in his eye, you heard from his eyes. Yeah. Again, shitty side of the street. Right? Like you, Karen can't even say that. They said whatever. You're just saying that their eyes said whatever, so they might have said, I'm sorry you're feeling that way, or whatever it is, but you saw slash heard through your vision of the world, whatever.

[00:41:28] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. And then just finally here, like to play devil's advocate, like even though 'I have an opinion about where Chili's falls and the whole ranking of niceties,

[00:41:37] Chelsey Donn: Sure.

[00:41:38] Trey Gerrald: Let's say that I'm going to Chili's and 'I really want it to be A' spectacular experience, which is fair to say that most people going like, no one wants to go there for it to be bad.

So we just keep going back to, okay, if it's cold, you could request, Hey, it's A' little cold in here. Or you could be prepared by having A' little card again in your car or something. You ask for the margarita, they bring you water 'I get, you took A' picture of the margarita, so you either had to say, Hey, where's my margarita?

Okay. Maybe that's obnoxious. You're saying the menu sucks and the drinks are bad. Well, these are things you could look up before you go into the restaurant. There's always A' menu outside, so you could turn around like, okay, that still is sort of falling on you. Then it's sort of like the stake was hard.

Okay. I'm hearing A' Complaint, but then it's just like the manager's A' jerk, they should go to their office, the skeleton server, they messed up our thing. Even the people around it, like I'm never coming back. It just is like, what? 'I don't know. 'I think 'I can crown.

[00:42:33] Chelsey Donn: Um, 'I can crown. 'I, can crown. Karen, there's nothing left to say on my heart.

[00:42:38] Trey Gerrald: All right,

[00:42:39] Chelsey Donn: it all.

[00:42:39] Trey Gerrald: so ChelseyBD and 'I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influence one another, we will simultaneously reveal our rating.

[00:42:49] VOICEOVER: The Queens are Tabulating to A' school.

[00:42:58] Chelsey Donn: Trey is holding up A' Half Crown. I'm holding up zero crowns on this one. 'I actually went A' Little bit. That's right. Zero. 'I went A'. Little bit mathematical. Cause the whole time 'I was thinking, am 'I gonna go A', half Crown am 'I gonna go zero. Crowns and 'I went category by category and reigned it out.

'I. And there was only the only categories that 'I gave A' half crown in was value maybe for the cold, and then another half crown for, oh, That's not even A' Half Crown. No, that's A'. Zero crown. That was it. The value was only the fi, the 0.5. And when you divide 0.5 by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 different line items we're getting so close to zero.

It's negligible at that point. So 'I had to go with zero crowns. 'I just don't see the value here more than anything about my opinion of who Karen is as an individual, which is obviously strong as I'm getting heated talking about Karen, like 'I know them, but 'I just. When your spelling is that bad, you're using that many exclamation points.

'I can't follow the narrative. 'I don't even know what you're saying in half the sentences. And then what you are saying is, 'I don't know. I'm just getting the vibe that I'm not trusting you. 'I can't give you any credit for that, right? 'I can't. 'I can't say that. You are making the person that is going to this Yelp page deciding whether or not they're gonna eat at this restaurant.

'I can't say you're making their lives any easier. 'I think that you are A' speed. , uh, in the journey of Yelp reviews and for that reason, zero crowns. Karen, do better. 'I. Don't know what else to say. Um, sorry about that. Why Half Crown?

[00:44:35] Trey Gerrald: 'I 'I. Mean 'I really agree with everything you're saying. The the speed bump in the reviews on Yelp. Like that really, that really is like 'I said Half Crown only because they included two pictures, which 'I do think is Queenly. Even if 'I like just look at the images separately. If I'm just scrolling through the gallery of, of customer images, 'I can see.

The mashed potatoes. 'I would eat them. Like 'I can see like the cloudiness of the drink. Like, it's not for me, but like I'm getting A'. I'm, I'm, I'm able to draw conclusions based on the images. But then, you know, 'I, 'I really the half was because maybe I'm hearing it's cold, but like that it's really just what is the value here for me is like 'I get two visuals and 'I 'I think that's really impactful.

This is A' really great example of like how to undermine your own review because we are reading, so just be A' little aware of your spelling and grammar and like, like it just comes across as A' rant. And you know, as A' Southerner, you know, it's like you can get more with honey than you can with vinegar and it's A' little like,

[00:45:43] Chelsey Donn: It's A', very vine gray.

[00:45:45] Trey Gerrald: it's just like,

[00:45:46] Chelsey Donn: It's not even A' vinegarette, it's just like straight vinegar.

[00:45:49] Trey Gerrald: This is not A' vinegarette.

There's nothing to shake here. It's

[00:45:53] Chelsey Donn: There's yeah, no, there's no oil. There's no balance. Well,

[00:45:58] Trey Gerrald: Honestly, if Karen never says,

[00:46:00] VOICEOVER: Welcome to Chili's

[00:46:01] Trey Gerrald: she never hears that ever again, that's fine. And 'I would say, good for Chili's. You know,

[00:46:08] Chelsey Donn: 'I

[00:46:08] VOICEOVER: my baby back, baby. Back baby. Baby back.

[00:46:12] Chelsey Donn: rib barbecue sauces.

[00:46:14] Trey Gerrald: sauce.

[00:46:16] VOICEOVER: 'I. Got my baby back.

[00:46:18] Chelsey Donn: Ribs, um, 'I. Don't think Chilis deserve that. You know, they

[00:46:22] Trey Gerrald: 'I love

[00:46:22] Chelsey Donn: they they have A'. Great jingle. 'I ate there when 'I was A' kid with my parents. 'I think 'I ordered, right? 'I never had A' problem outside of like the quality that 'I was expecting. The one thing I'll say is like, 'I feel good. we're poking holes in this review.

'I, think it's, this was A' suspicious review. I'm glad you brought it in. 'I think it needed to be discussed. More of these reviews need to be discussed so that we can understand some of these reviews are not valid. And this is A'. Perfect example of one that is C. Clogging the chain. We need A'. Draino this shit out of the Yelp page.

'I. Just wish that Yelp would hire us.

[00:47:04] Trey Gerrald: 'I think the speed bump conversation is really important. This really feels like A' speed bump man,

[00:47:09] Chelsey Donn: Can we talk? We are doing the hard work. Let's figure out what reviews need to go. Even if the reviews could stay Yelp with A' little flag of like, this is suss.

[00:47:24] Trey Gerrald: We gotta create our own badges that we

[00:47:26] Chelsey Donn: Yeah, 'I. Think like if the review Queens were working with Yelp, we would slap A' badge on this one that says caution, you know, disregard.

[00:47:37] Trey Gerrald: or caution 'I like that. This deserves A'. Caution badge.

[00:47:40] Chelsey Donn: this, it deserves A' caution badge. This, you know, 'I don't know that this person is completely truthful. So 'I, glad we got to do this today.

[00:47:50] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. All right. Well, let's jump from this caution badge into A' Celebratory Badge ChelseyBD. We have reached the most regal portion of our show. Who are you inducting for?

[00:48:03] VOICEOVER: My Royal line.

[00:48:05] Chelsey Donn: Well, 'I, Trey, 'I am so glad you asked. And 'I, just think 'I can't believe 'I haven't inducted this group of people sooner. But 'I wanna go ahead and induct the dog groomers of the world. How could 'I not do this? First of all, 'I think. These people are way underappreciated. They put up with so much from the dogs, from the owners.

They're cleaning frigging anal glands. For Christ's sake, we should be more grateful of these people that are really. You know, they're, they're doing A' lot of work, and oftentimes they're being underpaid. Please remember to tip your, your dog groomers. You know, there's just, there's so much more appreciation that is deserved here personally.

Goldie has A' dog groomer that 'I really like A' lot, and Goldie is not the easiest. Bella, my last dog who passed away, who should rest in peace. Every time 'I would pick her up from the groomer, they were like, she's the best. Goldie 'I. Pick her up. They're like, oof. You know, we gotta put A' muzzle on her.

So they put up with A' lot. Um, and the fact that they do this and they're dedicating their lives to our animals to make them so fresh and so clean, clean 'I just thought it was important that we took A' moment to say thank you. Thank you to all the dog groomers out there. We hear you. We appreciate you and.

Our dog's lives and our lives would not be the same without you. So thank you, 'I. Wanna make you today my hour? Royal Highness.

[00:49:36] Trey Gerrald: 'I tremendously concur. When you take your dog to the groomer, do they do the nail trimming

[00:49:44] Chelsey Donn: They do the nail trimming.

[00:49:45] Trey Gerrald: That alone? That

[00:49:47] Chelsey Donn: 'I, know the anal gun, the teeth, the, the, the nails.

[00:49:52] Trey Gerrald: oh my gosh.

[00:49:53] Chelsey Donn: The whole, the whole shebang. You know, obviously it's A' luxury to be able to do it in the first place, but like, you know, 'I just don't think we're we're grateful enough. 'I often see people complaining like, oh, they're taking too long, or whatever.

Like sometimes I'm in A' little rush. Last time 'I was in A', little bit of A' rush. But other than that, I'm like, take the time. You need, you know?

[00:50:13] Trey Gerrald: 'I mean We thankfully have dogs that do not require grooming and we often talk about it like it does come up often like, thank God we don't have to deal with like A' grooming bill. But that is just 'I mean such A'. Good induction.

[00:50:25] Chelsey Donn: Couldn't live without A' dog groomer personally.

[00:50:28] Trey Gerrald: 'I have stories for the A' show about this cuz my mom, you know, was A' poodle, groomer,
