Oh my God.

Chelsey Donn:

Chelsey Donn:

I'm good.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm feeling like tired and drained a little bit, you know, like sort of swimming through the

Chelsey Donn:

How's the car going?

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, my God.

Trey Gerrald:

I was gonna say, should I call you Dory?

Trey Gerrald:

The car is great.

Chelsey Donn:

Just keep swimming.

Trey Gerrald:

Yes, it's good.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm happy to have a car.

Trey Gerrald:

I had to fill it up for the very first time and that was fun and not that bad.

Trey Gerrald:

So I was happy about that.

Trey Gerrald:

Thank you, Hyundai.

Trey Gerrald:

And um, life is good.

Chelsey Donn:

Where were you that you had to fill your own gas?

Chelsey Donn:

Oh,

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, well, someone had to do it, but like the tank, you know, went to empty.

Chelsey Donn:

Got it.

Chelsey Donn:

Got

Trey Gerrald:

So I had to drive it somewhere for someone to pump it for me, cuz I am in New Jersey.

Chelsey Donn:

Are you still as irritated about that?

Chelsey Donn:

Or have you grown?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, is it, is it as annoying as it once was?

Trey Gerrald:

Well, I might do this as a, uh, Royal Highness at some point further down the

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Mm-hmm wow.

Trey Gerrald:

They have like a card.

Trey Gerrald:

So I had to get this card in the mail where you can save like up to like 50 cents per gallon.

Chelsey Donn:

That's a lot.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

But you have an ID number that you have to punch in.

Trey Gerrald:

So I did have like this anxiety about like, oh my gosh, like, is the person

Trey Gerrald:

And like, are they not gonna know what's happening?

Trey Gerrald:

Am I gonna have to explain it?

Trey Gerrald:

And then I'm not gonna be able to save my 8 cents that I thought that I would be saving,

Trey Gerrald:

But it all worked out.

Chelsey Donn:

Had they seen it before you weren't the first one with

Trey Gerrald:

He, yeah, he must have understood.

Trey Gerrald:

I made a tiny, teeny little label that said ID number and I put it on there

Trey Gerrald:

Um, but he, he, he still asked me, um, but he said, what's the ID, not what's your zip code.

Trey Gerrald:

And so I didn't have to have a conversation so that

Chelsey Donn:

Oh good.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

How were you, how was your car?

Chelsey Donn:

My car is good.

Chelsey Donn:

No major complaints over here.

Chelsey Donn:

Thank goodness.

Chelsey Donn:

Uh, driving around LA traffic, you know, the regular Complaint about that all the time.

Chelsey Donn:

Do we have anything else we wanna complain about today?

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, actually I think that it's time for us to both.

VOICEOVER:

Lodge Complaint.

Trey Gerrald:

right, so this is a little bizarre.

Trey Gerrald:

So I received in the mail, this gorgeous purple envelope.

Trey Gerrald:

And I was like,

Trey Gerrald:

Ooh.

Trey Gerrald:

what is this?

Trey Gerrald:

And it just says my name or current resident.

Trey Gerrald:

Open this envelope to read this exciting journey of being changed.

Trey Gerrald:

And it's a little boy.

Trey Gerrald:

So I opened it and it's this self-published book.

Trey Gerrald:

Nothing else inside just this self-published book called changed.

Trey Gerrald:

So of course in my.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, no,

Trey Gerrald:

Non heteronormative world.

Trey Gerrald:

I assumed this was about being changed from gay to straight,

Trey Gerrald:

which is a journey I have had to endure many times in my life being from the south,

Trey Gerrald:

I've had to have that conversation much more than I ever should.

Trey Gerrald:

So I just assumed that's what this was.

Trey Gerrald:

So I was offended and upset, angry.

Trey Gerrald:

I was like, what's going on?

Trey Gerrald:

Is this sent from my stepmom, my ex stepmom.

Trey Gerrald:

So I did a little Googling.

Trey Gerrald:

Turns out this is not about being changed from gay to straight.

Trey Gerrald:

This is about being changed by the power of Jesus Christ.

Trey Gerrald:

If you were born Jewish.

Chelsey Donn:

Stop.

Trey Gerrald:

Literally there's a New York times article a New York post article, tons

Trey Gerrald:

This author, Tom canter got cancer.

Trey Gerrald:

He decided that he needed to cure his spiritual cancer, which was thinking he was Jewish.

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

now he wrote this self-published book and he sends it out to Jewish people to

Trey Gerrald:

Here's a funny tidbit.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm not Jewish.

Trey Gerrald:

So

Chelsey Donn:

to a Jew.

Trey Gerrald:

yes, but David didn't get one.

Trey Gerrald:

Um, I Donn don't know why I got this in the mail.

Trey Gerrald:

It's very funny to me that they wasted postage on me.

Trey Gerrald:

But, you know, whatever, I don't need to go into great details about this.

Trey Gerrald:

If anyone has any experience on getting this in the mail, please, we always ask for people

Trey Gerrald:

A, I think it's kind of brilliant.

Trey Gerrald:

B

Chelsey Donn:

Brilliant

Trey Gerrald:

It's brilliant marketing.

Trey Gerrald:

I think it's brilliant.

Trey Gerrald:

If you have the budget.

Trey Gerrald:

Solicit I've wanted to solicit postcards for this very podcast, forcing it on people.

Trey Gerrald:

That's brilliant.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't support.

Chelsey Donn:

The message.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't support pushing religion on anyone.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't support pushing anything on anyone other than listening to this

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, that's my Complaint.

Trey Gerrald:

Donn.

Trey Gerrald:

Don't send me unsolicited Christian literature.

Trey Gerrald:

That's atrocious.

Trey Gerrald:

If you were raised Jewish and you think that's wrong, that's your personal journey?

Trey Gerrald:

I don't think it's appropriate to like, try to push this.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm gonna have to cut all of this, but it makes me really angry.

Trey Gerrald:

You are in a cult, call your dad.

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, I'm not gonna read this, but I do feel like there's a little victory because

Trey Gerrald:

Maybe I'm supporting a Jewish agenda because I love Jews.

Trey Gerrald:

I love Yiddish.

Trey Gerrald:

I insert myself into that culture constantly, but y'all, I haven't converted

Trey Gerrald:

So I don't know why they gave me this.

Trey Gerrald:

But, um, thanks Tom canter.

Chelsey Donn:

That's wild.

Trey Gerrald:

Isn't that the weirdest thing,

Chelsey Donn:

think any kind of unsolicited male in general, it's

Chelsey Donn:

Why, why would you send that to me?

Trey Gerrald:

unless it speaks to you, maybe you're like, cool, but isn't it funny,

Chelsey Donn:

I, 1000% thought that this was gonna be a conversion there, like gay conversion thing.

Chelsey Donn:

And I was like, oh, they know you're gay.

Chelsey Donn:

You're in the neighborhood.

Chelsey Donn:

They're

Trey Gerrald:

Right,

Chelsey Donn:

for you.

Trey Gerrald:

but this is from California Chelsey.

Trey Gerrald:

So it's not a neighbor.

Trey Gerrald:

It's a neighbor of yours.

Chelsey Donn:

be getting one too, then maybe it's someone that's listened to

Trey Gerrald:

Well, your last name isn't Donn.

Trey Gerrald:

Dewitz it's Donn.

Chelsey Donn:

but like Assess that Kvetch.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't think

Trey Gerrald:

I know Gerrald Gerrald Stein all ChelseyBD.

Trey Gerrald:

What is your Complaint today?

Chelsey Donn:

I do have a feeling we've lodged this as a Complaint

Chelsey Donn:

So I was driving in my car and my phone was running outta battery

Chelsey Donn:

So I went to the gas station to get a overpriced charger that probably wasn't gonna work anyway.

Chelsey Donn:

So first Complaint by the charger took like forever to get like somebody to help

Chelsey Donn:

And it's in like the packaging that is impossible to open and like, clearly I'm gonna go in my car.

Chelsey Donn:

I Donn don't have like, Scissors.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't have equipment with me.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm gonna go in my car and try to open this.

Chelsey Donn:

So I'm trying to open it.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm like driving away, like trying to figure this out at the stop signs, which I don't recommend.

Chelsey Donn:

And then finally I do get it out.

Chelsey Donn:

I think this is excessive packaging.

Chelsey Donn:

This is plastic.

Chelsey Donn:

This is wasteful, but whatever, at least I got it out.

Chelsey Donn:

Then I go to plug it into the USB port and the USB part snaps.

Trey Gerrald:

Chelsey like the metal part just pops.

Chelsey Donn:

yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

And I'm like, thi this was behind a wall then in plastic that like, could kill 10 dolphins.

Chelsey Donn:

And then the thing inside of it is like such a piece of crap that it's like falling apart.

Chelsey Donn:

It's what is with the packaging that is like wasteful and just overindulgent.

Chelsey Donn:

And it's not even doing the job.

Chelsey Donn:

Like what?

Trey Gerrald:

So wait, did you like, had you already driven away?

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, I had driven cuz I was like in a rush and I was like, I gotta go.

Chelsey Donn:

But I was using my phone for my navigation.

Chelsey Donn:

So I was like, I gotta get this plugged in.

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz I didn't really know where I was going.

Trey Gerrald:

what'd you do, did you have to go buy another one?

Chelsey Donn:

no, thankfully my phones made it to where I was going.

Chelsey Donn:

And then I was able to borrow a charger and it was fine, but like, it's just, you know, obviously

Chelsey Donn:

And then just like the whole thing about putting it behind the glass, like, like so

Trey Gerrald:

Ineffective.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, it's really funny, like, cuz I also recently purchased a car.

Trey Gerrald:

Like I wanted a short.

Trey Gerrald:

Charger, cuz I don't want like the giant long one that I love when I'm in my house,

Trey Gerrald:

And I really was like, okay, I don't wanna pay 1295 for this braided one cuz I know it's probably

Trey Gerrald:

That's like, this is not a compatible device, which is so annoying.

Chelsey Donn:

which I hate that too.

Trey Gerrald:

And, but they did.

Trey Gerrald:

Quote, unquote Mac ones.

Trey Gerrald:

And I was like, I know that this is fake.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I know this is not really apple.

Trey Gerrald:

This is like, I'm in Chinatown.

Trey Gerrald:

And it's like, you know, like everything is a knockoff, but so far it's been okay.

Trey Gerrald:

But yes, no, I always have dread when I have to buy a phone cord, cuz I always feel like.

Trey Gerrald:

I have to buy the apple one, which is gonna be $900, because if I try to buy this cheap one,

Trey Gerrald:

Did you ask the clerk if they had scissors, cuz sometimes they might have something more sharp

Chelsey Donn:

getting this particular person that worked at this gas station to leave

Chelsey Donn:

Like he wasn't like, what do you need?

Chelsey Donn:

Let me help you out.

Chelsey Donn:

He was like annoyed that I was removing him from his post.

Chelsey Donn:

So now I didn't ask.

Trey Gerrald:

I definitely hear that.

Trey Gerrald:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

Sorry.

Trey Gerrald:

And Ugh, it goes back to that thought that eventually the wifi is

Trey Gerrald:

Like when Jessica called in

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, that's right.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

With a Complaint that,

VOICEOVER:

Listener Voicemail!

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my goodness.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God.

Chelsey Donn:

This is

Trey Gerrald:

of listener voicemails, a listener voicemail.

Chelsey Donn:

have a westerner voice, a westerner voicemail, my wishing a voice voicemail.

Trey Gerrald:

Did you know that I went to speech therapy in elementary school.

Chelsey Donn:

I think I did too.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Here we go.

Trey Gerrald:

So here's a listener voicemail.

Trey Gerrald:

Uh, I have no idea who it's from, so let's listen.

VOICEOVER:

greens.

VOICEOVER:

Uh, I Donn I don't have a name.

VOICEOVER:

I don't have an alias either, but, uh, I just wanted to, to ask a question.

VOICEOVER:

Do either of you ever find yourself sitting in a line of cars and the person at the front

Chelsey Donn:

Mm-hmm

VOICEOVER:

Yeah,

Trey Gerrald:

Oh,

VOICEOVER:

either they not park close enough.

VOICEOVER:

They open the door and get out or they just reverse all together.

VOICEOVER:

Something doesn't make sense.

VOICEOVER:

What is wrong with these people?

VOICEOVER:

It's like a parking ticket machine.

Trey Gerrald:

my God.

VOICEOVER:

I don't get.

VOICEOVER:

Just curious if you Donn them, have that problem.

Chelsey Donn:

is a very mysterious listener voicemail.

Chelsey Donn:

They don't have a name.

Chelsey Donn:

They don't have an alias, but they do have a Complaint to Lodge.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

I've definitely been in this experience many, a time.

Trey Gerrald:

I've also been the person like, look, I, I Donn know if I've talked

Trey Gerrald:

It was, you know, not that elegant and we bought it used.

Trey Gerrald:

And when I would be at a stoplight or a stop sign, the transmission would start rattling

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, my God.

Trey Gerrald:

I would have to like put the car into park and then turn the key to turn it off.

Trey Gerrald:

Then I would have to try to crank it again.

Trey Gerrald:

And sometimes it would like not catch.

Trey Gerrald:

So I'd be like trying to crank it multiple times.

Trey Gerrald:

Then I would have to like put it back into drive and go so many times

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, my goodness.

Trey Gerrald:

The like workaround to that was, I had to simultaneously be pressing the gas

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, I gotta say that because there was also a time when the, uh, window didn't work.

Trey Gerrald:

So anytime I would go to like a ticket thing or I would go to a drive

Trey Gerrald:

Like if I was at an ATM.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And that is mortifying and embarrassing.

Trey Gerrald:

Um, so I've been that person that like is having the issue, but I've, I don't know

Trey Gerrald:

How do you feel when you're behind someone who like is having trauma?

Chelsey Donn:

I think it just like depends on how far back you are in the line.

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz like I really think that the real culprit in this situation is anxiety.

Chelsey Donn:

I think from both sides, it can be a nightmare situation.

Chelsey Donn:

But I've gotten better, to be honest about these kind of things.

Chelsey Donn:

Because my road rage was out of control at one point for like this type of stuff.

Chelsey Donn:

Like if I was going down the hill, even somebody was turning into a gate and like,

Chelsey Donn:

And then I took this mindfulness class that told me when I get into situations like that,

Trey Gerrald:

Uh,

Chelsey Donn:

that would start to like, TreyGerrald just like new, new thoughts, I guess.

Chelsey Donn:

So like, oh, what if they have car trouble?

Chelsey Donn:

What if like, they like just trying to more get into the compassion mindset and then usually when

Chelsey Donn:

But like, usually when that happens and like, I kind of flip the switch

Trey Gerrald:

It's funny that you just went to that place, because my thought here

Trey Gerrald:

Operating in the world is like, we can't control other people.

Trey Gerrald:

It's like, it is like, but I feel like when I'm driving by myself, I have less road rage.

Trey Gerrald:

But when I'm driving with David, I turn into a monster and he like, kind of laughs about

Trey Gerrald:

Cuz I will just like cus and go crazy.

Trey Gerrald:

Like I turn into a full.

Trey Gerrald:

Country, hillbilly, redneck, where I'm like expletive mother the fuck up, you

Trey Gerrald:

Cause I think I'm more tense when I'm driving someone than I am just driving myself.

Trey Gerrald:

But I hear the caller.

Trey Gerrald:

I understand the Complaint.

Trey Gerrald:

I've definitely been there.

Trey Gerrald:

And so maybe pause what a pleasure.

Chelsey Donn:

For sure.

Chelsey Donn:

Especially when it's like you got somewhere to go.

Chelsey Donn:

And also just the fact that I don't know if this call, they didn't, I don't think

Chelsey Donn:

You have to deal with these, get a ticket situations.

Chelsey Donn:

And it's a

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, like validating your ticket.

Chelsey Donn:

Constantly.

Chelsey Donn:

It's like, you're going into a parking structure, even if you're just gonna

Chelsey Donn:

So.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, that's true.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

But yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Anyway, I hear you call her.

Trey Gerrald:

the listener was, you should go to Review That Review dot com slash shop.

Trey Gerrald:

by a Vere's ledger and every time you get upset and angry, you could just notate

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Take a photo of it.

Trey Gerrald:

what ChelseyBD.

Trey Gerrald:

And I do.

Chelsey Donn:

Put it in your story.

Chelsey Donn:

Tag us.

Trey Gerrald:

All right, so let's move forward from our and our caller's coves

Trey Gerrald:

How do you feel Chelsey?

Chelsey Donn:

I feel really good about that.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey

Trey Gerrald:

Let's do it.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's do our title.

VOICEOVER:

That Review.

Chelsey Donn:

as you know, we are your trustee review Queens.

Chelsey Donn:

We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

Trey Gerrald:

We read you the review, break it down and rate the impact of the

Trey Gerrald:

It's a very Regal process that Chelsey and I love to call.

VOICEOVER:

Assess that Kvetch.

Trey Gerrald:

so Chelsey, give us the opportunity.

Trey Gerrald:

What have you got for us to rate and review today?

Chelsey Donn:

Well, Trey today, the day that this episode airs will be my sister and

Chelsey Donn:

Mazel top to them.

Chelsey Donn:

And so I just was thinking like, what is the ninth anniversary gift?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, you know how every anniversary is a theme.

Chelsey Donn:

It's like the paper thing, the, this thing, the, I don't know, there's lots of 'em.

Chelsey Donn:

So I was like, what's the ninth.

Chelsey Donn:

So I looked it up and the ninth anniversary is the pottery and Willow.

Chelsey Donn:

Are the two symbols of the nine years of marriage.

Chelsey Donn:

And so like people interpret the Willow one a little differently.

Chelsey Donn:

Like some people do something with a Willow tree, I guess.

Chelsey Donn:

Like there's something about the Willow plant that is in Rotan Raton, Donn, Rotan.

Chelsey Donn:

Is that how you say?

Chelsey Donn:

Or like

Trey Gerrald:

I like Wicker

Chelsey Donn:

so you can give yeah, like Wicker furniture is appropriate or, you

Trey Gerrald:

coast.

Chelsey Donn:

like That's or go or watching ghost.

Chelsey Donn:

So I decided to look up color me mind, cuz I love color me mind.

Chelsey Donn:

There was one around the corner when I was a kid.

Chelsey Donn:

Did you, have you ever gone there?

Trey Gerrald:

No, but I, I recognize

Chelsey Donn:

know what it is?

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

So it's like that place you go and you pick something, a pottery item off

Chelsey Donn:

And you got a beautiful ceramic dog bowl or something like that.

Chelsey Donn:

So this review is a Yelp review of the color.

Chelsey Donn:

Me mine in Pasadena.

Chelsey Donn:

It is a One-Star-Zinger review written by mom, mom, L.

Chelsey Donn:

You need spelling?

Trey Gerrald:

like British mom, like a mom,

Chelsey Donn:

My mom, like I was thinking like, almost like grandma, but maybe mom.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, mom,

Trey Gerrald:

Well, that's how the Brits say mom.

Trey Gerrald:

They say, mom, it's my mom.

Chelsey Donn:

oh really?

Chelsey Donn:

Uh, mom, my mom, my mom.

Chelsey Donn:

So mom, mom L.

Chelsey Donn:

And this is, this is their One-Star-Zinger review of color.

Chelsey Donn:

May mine in Pasadena.

Chelsey Donn:

This place has no understanding or concern for children's hard work.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh no.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh no.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't want my first Yelp review to be a negative one, but what happened at color?

Chelsey Donn:

Me, mine.

Chelsey Donn:

Pasadena is unforgivable.

Chelsey Donn:

I would've given this place zero.

Chelsey Donn:

If I could, first, we had made an appointment the previous day, but when we

Chelsey Donn:

But there was a table available for us.

Chelsey Donn:

My younger child, who is four years old, chose a knob to paint and worked

Chelsey Donn:

When I went to pay, I was told that we needed to have a set of four knobs and couldn't purchase.

Chelsey Donn:

Only one.

Trey Gerrald:

oh my God.

Chelsey Donn:

My only option was to get three more knobs and come back to paint them another time.

Trey Gerrald:

What?

Chelsey Donn:

a sign anywhere indicating that four needed to be purchased.

Chelsey Donn:

And none of the knobs matched, there were not four matching knobs.

Chelsey Donn:

I explained to the worker that there were not four knobs that matched, she explained

Chelsey Donn:

Only the mug that my other child painted.

Chelsey Donn:

I understood that to mean I wouldn't be charged, but would still get it since

Chelsey Donn:

I went on to complete my purchase.

Chelsey Donn:

And before I walked out of the store, asked to confirm about the knob.

Chelsey Donn:

The worker said I was only getting the mug.

Chelsey Donn:

The knob had been cleaned, meaning the work that my four year old had done was gone.

Chelsey Donn:

This was less than a minute later,

Trey Gerrald:

What

Chelsey Donn:

needless to say my child and I were very upset that the work was gone

Chelsey Donn:

The knob was meant to be her birthday present.

Chelsey Donn:

The owner came out to talk to me after I had requested to see her, her explanation to me is

Chelsey Donn:

I called back while I was driving home, since my child was still distraught.

Chelsey Donn:

And my older child was worried that the other project we had paid for would also be washed away.

Chelsey Donn:

I explained that I was not satisfied with the fact that the knob had been taken away so quickly, and

Chelsey Donn:

Also I requested that they value a child's work, at least until the

Chelsey Donn:

If I would've realized the knob was going to be washed, I might have purchased the set.

Chelsey Donn:

If the owner would've been more compromising, she may have had my business for years to come,

Chelsey Donn:

Has now cost her thousands.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm just now my first thought here is I wonder how many visits you would have

Trey Gerrald:

Thousands of dollars of business.

Chelsey Donn:

L I don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

Well, the, well, those places are kind of expensive.

Chelsey Donn:

I bet you, if you did a birthday party there and you were buying

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm sorry.

Trey Gerrald:

What?

Trey Gerrald:

The F is a knob,

Chelsey Donn:

Oh,

Trey Gerrald:

a doorknob.

Chelsey Donn:

I was picturing like on, you know, how like on furniture, like on a dresser,

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, like pulls and

Chelsey Donn:

there's a knob, like a, yeah, that's what I was picturing,

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe

Trey Gerrald:

I, but I literally went to color me, mind.com and looked up things you can paint.

Trey Gerrald:

I searched the word knob and nothing comes up.

Trey Gerrald:

I P I searched and handle

Chelsey Donn:

had to get rid of it because.

Trey Gerrald:

wait.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Wait.

Chelsey Donn:

it caused such a CURF.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm lost early on here.

Trey Gerrald:

Wait, why was mom L not able to purchase three more?

Trey Gerrald:

Cause none of them matched,

Chelsey Donn:

I guess like, so let's say maybe they, they require you to buy four,

Chelsey Donn:

So maybe they only had like two of every kind or three of every kind or something like that.

Chelsey Donn:

So like, there would be no way of getting four matching knobs.

Chelsey Donn:

Like if I was gonna replace the knobs on my dresser or whatever it is, you know what I mean?

Chelsey Donn:

Then like,

Trey Gerrald:

So they wouldn't allow mom, mom L to get two of one kind and two of

Chelsey Donn:

No, they would allow, but my mom was, my mom was, first of all, like nobody told us

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I wrote that down.

Chelsey Donn:

one.

Chelsey Donn:

Then, then like second me.

Chelsey Donn:

Policy is to make four.

Chelsey Donn:

Let's say I did wanna get four.

Chelsey Donn:

Well, then I couldn't get four matching.

Chelsey Donn:

So that'd be weird.

Chelsey Donn:

I didn't want non-matching knobs.

Chelsey Donn:

So like, I think what she was trying to say is like, okay, I understand that's not your

Chelsey Donn:

I would have to buy two different kinds.

Chelsey Donn:

So can't you let me get away with it.

Chelsey Donn:

I feel like is what mom, mom was saying.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, I think that's the thesis statement here, which then is an interesting

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I Donn Donn really know like how you get around that.

Trey Gerrald:

But the idea that what finally occurred was that they took it and washed it.

Trey Gerrald:

That is so aggressive and crazy.

Chelsey Donn:

and create

Trey Gerrald:

This is a child

Chelsey Donn:

minutes and it's a child's thing.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, exactly.

Trey Gerrald:

that is really outrageous to me.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I think that what must have happened is that like, they were obviously

Chelsey Donn:

And she was like, okay.

Chelsey Donn:

And then handed it off to be like clean, you know, like, just like, obviously didn't

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So I've never been to the proper color.

Trey Gerrald:

Me, mine.

Trey Gerrald:

I've been to this sort of business model store many times in my life.

Trey Gerrald:

That's not called color me, mine, but they're all the same.

Trey Gerrald:

And generally speaking.

Trey Gerrald:

People that choose to work.

Trey Gerrald:

There are, I would say artsy, Craftsy kinds of people.

Trey Gerrald:

They're usually fun and young.

Trey Gerrald:

Like they're how do I say this without being stereotypical?

Trey Gerrald:

I Donn know.

Trey Gerrald:

I kind of feel like it's usually, like they're not making their entire living from this job.

Trey Gerrald:

So sometimes people could have like, not a lot of concern necessarily about, I

Trey Gerrald:

That is crazy to.

Chelsey Donn:

I think that that's crazy.

Chelsey Donn:

And I feel like that's like, that's like traumatic enough for a kid that as a

Chelsey Donn:

Like that's where they lose me is like, even if they said, listen, I'm so sorry, obvi

Chelsey Donn:

Here's a, you know, coupon or whatever comeback, and you can get an item

Chelsey Donn:

Paint it on us.

Chelsey Donn:

Like you have to make good on something like that.

Chelsey Donn:

You can't just delete someone's kid's artwork and then not do anything about it.

Trey Gerrald:

what it feels like.

Chelsey Donn:

Like how could they not have done anything?

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I understand that she got in the car, but.

Chelsey Donn:

She was probably like dealing with her kids crying and like a whole thing.

Chelsey Donn:

And she did say that she talked to the manager because she demand or the owner

Chelsey Donn:

So I don't really know that my mom could have done anything differently.

Chelsey Donn:

I , that's a

Trey Gerrald:

I thought the, um, metaphor of like, if you bought fries and

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I just think that's really fun now.

Trey Gerrald:

I want some fries.

Chelsey Donn:

really weird like retort for an owner to say back.

Trey Gerrald:

For a knob,

Chelsey Donn:

And also it's not the same thing as French fries.

Chelsey Donn:

It's like you made that thing,

Trey Gerrald:

right.

Trey Gerrald:

And French fries are perishable.

Trey Gerrald:

That's why you throw them away.

Chelsey Donn:

right?

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Wait, so what is, uh, ma ma Mel's spelling and grammar like.

Chelsey Donn:

I think pretty good.

Chelsey Donn:

There might have been one mistake.

Chelsey Donn:

There's not a ton of punctuation, but I think overall good.

Chelsey Donn:

The only thing I would ding a little long, little repetitive with the knobs,

Trey Gerrald:

do you think that this is truthful?

Trey Gerrald:

I do.

Trey Gerrald:

For some reason.

Chelsey Donn:

I do.

Chelsey Donn:

I think it's, again, like it's specific enough that it feels truthful,

Trey Gerrald:

So then, okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you think this is gonna be typical?

Trey Gerrald:

The thing about there being no sign indicating that you must purchase a certain number that

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah,

Trey Gerrald:

of drawers.

Chelsey Donn:

ceramic knobs.

Chelsey Donn:

It's a ceramic knob.

Chelsey Donn:

That's what it is.

Chelsey Donn:

And like, I can see a parent for a four year old or whatever, you know, doing something like that.

Chelsey Donn:

Cause it's small.

Chelsey Donn:

It's like, oh, they can feel like they're involved, but it's not really like a whole to do.

Trey Gerrald:

thing, right?

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

So I think it's common.

Chelsey Donn:

And I think it's like common enough in a worthwhile way of like, if I was gonna go to

Chelsey Donn:

Not only are they not copying to what they had done wrong, but they're like, you are an idiot.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, what did you think was gonna happen when we were like, we're

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

See to me, I just feel like this is wreaking of like really bad business practice.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, especially like, I just feel like these places are like bachelorette parties,

Trey Gerrald:

So like to be that like, To have that much of a disregard for a child's work is so atrocious.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't even care about children, so it's not like I see them as more valuable than adults,

Trey Gerrald:

Like, if you it's like, you can't just buy one, but it just seems like this is crazy.

Trey Gerrald:

Do we think it's funny or humorous or.

Trey Gerrald:

Do we think it's entertaining?

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

There are moments of it that I like chuckled up, but like, yeah, no, I think that

Chelsey Donn:

I Donn don't necessarily think it's.

Chelsey Donn:

I'll like laugh out loud, but it's not really written to be though like

Chelsey Donn:

So,

Trey Gerrald:

of knob over and over is actually funny to me.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, do you think this there's an impact here for you for going to the Pasadena color?

Trey Gerrald:

Me mine.

Trey Gerrald:

That was.

Chelsey Donn:

Absolutely.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I think if I was gonna go there, I would like be, I'd be very wary.

Chelsey Donn:

I'd wanna make sure that everything was handled really well.

Chelsey Donn:

And the last thing I'll say in regards to who's working there is just that

Chelsey Donn:

They could be really young.

Chelsey Donn:

Not that I'm saying that that's an excuse either, but color remind very much is

Chelsey Donn:

So I wouldn't

Trey Gerrald:

I was trying to get to earlier.

Chelsey Donn:

I wouldn't be shocked if like these were, you know, kids basically who just wanted to

Chelsey Donn:

Like I gotta clean all the things that were return.

Chelsey Donn:

Like what, you know what I mean?

Chelsey Donn:

Because

Trey Gerrald:

right.

Trey Gerrald:

Like maybe it was the end of the night.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, I don't know if you'd have a four year old at like 9:00 PM, but like, if it is like,

Chelsey Donn:

think they just like threw it in the pile.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

So either way, like, I would wanna know

Trey Gerrald:

But they say the manager.

Trey Gerrald:

So like, but I guess there could be the owner, they say the owner.

Trey Gerrald:

So like that's not gonna be a teenager

Chelsey Donn:

No, but that's where I really feel like things went, went awry.

Trey Gerrald:

bed, knobs and broomsticks.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

I think I could crown

Chelsey Donn:

I can cry, mom, mom.

Chelsey Donn:

Let's do.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's crown mom, mom.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

So Chelsey and I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards in an effort to be

VOICEOVER:

The Queens are Tabulating.

VOICEOVER:

Total Score!.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm holding up four crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey is holding up four and a half crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

All right, Trey, why four and a half crowns for my mom.

Trey Gerrald:

I just think that like, if this, it, it does ring as truthful to

Trey Gerrald:

Location.

Trey Gerrald:

I would think that if this is the practice for a four year old then, and there's no like

Trey Gerrald:

And then I don't know what I'll do about a kiln, but I'll figure it out later.

Trey Gerrald:

Cuz I don't.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, it just seems really dispassionate.

Trey Gerrald:

And I think the whole point of art is compassion.

Trey Gerrald:

So just a total miss for me.

Trey Gerrald:

I didn't give the whole five cuz I just think, Ugh, I can't tell if there's maybe like a tinge

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, help me with my, but like regardless, I don't wanna be in this situation.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm sorry that my mom was, and for that reason I said four and a half Chelsey.

Trey Gerrald:

Why did you say four?

Chelsey Donn:

I one with four, mostly ditto to everything you just said.

Chelsey Donn:

I'll just add that.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't necessarily think everybody that's going into that store is gonna have this experience.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't think, I think most of the items are probably not this four for one, so I don't

Chelsey Donn:

Everyone that goes there.

Chelsey Donn:

So I wanna leave a little bit of room, but I do think that it was really, really mismanaged.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't like the owner's metaphor with the French fries business.

Chelsey Donn:

And I think that, I think my mom did deserve the four crowns, so that's why I went with four.

Trey Gerrald:

Totally.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh my gosh.

Trey Gerrald:

Good job.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, congratulations to your brother-in-law's sister for their

Trey Gerrald:

ninth wedding anniversary.

Trey Gerrald:

And I hope that they don't get treated the way

Chelsey Donn:

I know.

Trey Gerrald:

year old did.

Chelsey Donn:

I'll have to make sure they didn't go to the Pasadena color.

Chelsey Donn:

Me mine.

Trey Gerrald:

Or we can leave the possibility that maybe they've learned their lesson, but

Chelsey Donn:

Or if they took the kids that like my, um, niece and nephews would definitely

Chelsey Donn:

Like, they'd be like, I want the, you know, ninja turtle or whatever.

Chelsey Donn:

have we done it.

Chelsey Donn:

Have we reached the most Regal portion of our show, Trey know, Trey,

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

So this occurred to me.

Trey Gerrald:

Not too long ago.

Trey Gerrald:

And I didn't even like think twice about it.

Trey Gerrald:

And then I was like, whoa, this totally has changed the world.

Trey Gerrald:

It was invented 23 years ago in 1999 by a person named Aaron Peckham.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you have any idea what it is?

Trey Gerrald:

ChelseyBD

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

What is it?

Trey Gerrald:

have you ever heard of urban dictionary.com?

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, I have

Trey Gerrald:

So as someone who isn't always up on the talks, I'm not up on the lingo.

Trey Gerrald:

I like, you know, I'm just getting to a place in my life where certain

Trey Gerrald:

And so I constantly will have to go and.

Trey Gerrald:

Find out what some abbreviation means, what some, like word means.

Trey Gerrald:

Cuz I don't understand.

Trey Gerrald:

And I always go to urban dictionary now.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know when I first understood what this was or know where all that began for me personally,

Trey Gerrald:

I know I have visited the website many hundreds of times and.

Trey Gerrald:

I Donn don't think I've ever actually contributed, but today I wanna induct urban dictionary and

Trey Gerrald:

So anyone who doesn't know I'll be your urban dictionary for what urban dictionary is.

Trey Gerrald:

Urban dictionary is basically a crowdsourced online dictionary for slang words and phrases.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So in 1999, Aaron Peckham was a freshman.

Trey Gerrald:

Cal poly and they were creating, they actually first made a spoof website of ask JS.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you remember ask JS?

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, my God.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

of like Google.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

But they actually got a letter of infringement.

Trey Gerrald:

Like you, you can't do that.

Trey Gerrald:

So.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, so whatever.

Trey Gerrald:

So eventually that led Aaron Peckham to creating urban dictionary and it really blew up.

Trey Gerrald:

This is so weird and crazy.

Trey Gerrald:

In 2003.

Trey Gerrald:

So five years later, a news article was written about a judge in the UK had used

Trey Gerrald:

And so the judge didn't understand and so went to urban dictionary and when that article came

Trey Gerrald:

And yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

So anyway, so urban dictionary is a place where if someone is like L M a F O and you like don't

Trey Gerrald:

Type in LM, AFO, meaning, and usually the urban dictionary website will pop up.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, I use it constantly.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm sure that everyone else does.

Trey Gerrald:

And it's one of those things that it's like, it just exists.

Trey Gerrald:

And so I've never thought about it.

Trey Gerrald:

I never stopped to think like who had this idea and I think urban dictionary.

Trey Gerrald:

Is like, totally like Facebook, like it's like, this is a genius invention

Trey Gerrald:

So that's why today I have inducted urban dictionary as my Royal Highness.

Trey Gerrald:

You are a Queen urban dictionary.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, you are.

Chelsey Donn:

Have you ever looked your name up on urban dictionary?

Trey Gerrald:

No.

Trey Gerrald:

Should.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, that's fun.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I wanna

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, it's an experience.

Chelsey Donn:

It's a mixed bag for me.

Chelsey Donn:

Mostly good.

Chelsey Donn:

Mostly good for the Chelsey with a Y, but you know, there's always

Trey Gerrald:

It is funny to me.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I do feel like sometimes there's jokey ones, but then, then like, you'll

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

It's in there.

Chelsey Donn:

It's in

Trey Gerrald:

Wait, there was something I looked up recently.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh, I, what was, oh, it was like, Belongs on the street or to the street.

Trey Gerrald:

I Donn know some, I Donn know it I've went on this whole rap hall.

Trey Gerrald:

It doesn't matter.

Trey Gerrald:

We'll talk about it in the app show anyway.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:
