know trying to do too much here yeah we are trying to fit an elephant through a freaking straw yeah yeah well we have a special guest marissa right here in studio and uh today's topic we're going to be talking about the whole mask mandate and i know it's kind of been a hot um topic and i know marissa herself has been posting a lot of stuff on facebook um so without further ado how are you doing i'm doing pretty good thanks for having me here you're welcome and uh welcome to the studio and uh marissa brought up a funny story she's like hey isn't this the haunted room in your house and i completely forgot about it until her phone started wigging out is it still doing it uh let's see yeah it's still wigging out and just glitches look at that so you saw it here first you heard it here there's obviously a poltergeist in this studio with all these cameras maybe one day we'll actually capture it but uh anyway without further ado why is this room haunted we don't know why this is wrong i don't i don't want to be around i don't want to be in a room that's haunted freaking out no don't come in here at night well uh i've been in here i've been in here at night you don't hear the noises i don't hear any noises because i have my headphones on when i'm riding or when i'm doing you know other crap way back in the way back in the way he would use this as his dumbbell room and i would always hear like a noise and i was like do you have like a a rat or a squirrel in there and he's like i don't know what you're talking about you know what we just don't go in there we shut the door and we don't talk about it you know what i yeah see yeah i was like yeah because i was like because in the other room where i sleep i've heard like creaks and all that crap like in the ceiling and i thought hey devin you know what man you got a uh you got a squirrel up there dude or something well actually we did find out that we did have a squirrel uh it made a hole about that big um in the side of the house in between the floors so apparently it was running back and forth between the floors uh so we did but that was like several years ago so uh yeah so it's not that hey christina how you doing it's been a while how are you doing uh there's a spook right beside you where where did you see a ghost i didn't see nothing and i didn't hear anything all i saw was maurice's phone freak out that's all i saw it still isn't working either yeah it's freaking what is going on i don't know i was working earlier now well you're on a podcast why are you worried about a phone oh a lot more worried about just i'm just joking hey is your live stream is it still running or is it stopped uh looks like it's still it's still it stopped it stopped what the i'm telling you all right maybe we got too many things open you know what it's probably because we got premiere open we got outlook open we got quicktime open we got let's start looks like it's kind of um well not anymore never nevermind all right don't worry i will uh re-engineer this and fix it well there we go i'm closing uh jesus i'm closing premiere yeah i think we had way too many applications open sorry for the delay and technical difficulties let me just once again it's never done this before oh my god i brought a ghost with me you did start talking about this ghost and everything else and yeah look what you did marissa that's all your wow this is really bad what's it doing do i need to you want to restart again well no no we're up yeah i know i just refreshed it oh you did i'm about to refresh the whole damn page like it's pissing me off well i'll refresh it no cuz then i think we might lose everybody nah i won't lose anybody i just refreshed it you know what i blame it on abbott and ercot and uh the frozen pipes and the frozen network oh my god why would you why would you want to no nevermind i'm not words spit them out use them let the air force let them be your guiding light okay all right so marissa sorry about all the delays and all that jazz so let's talk about the whole mask thing and how you feel about that whole situation i mean you know i teach i teach out of high school and so it can be challenging probably less challenging than it is with elementary kids but you know high schoolers they want to wear it below their nose and all that thankfully my district has opted to continue wearing masks until they see fit so that's helpful doesn't mean the challenges aren't as bad you know and prior to any of this coming up about the removing mask we had um parents who didn't want to send their kids back because they have either their child themselves or other family members and it scared them and then as soon as this came out and we had just convinced them to send their kid back they're starting to pull them out again and so now we're back in the same situation of kids not getting the education that they need because of these masks so why are they pulling them out for the second time because they're afraid that parents are going to start fighting back and saying my kid doesn't have to wear a mask and that's all hearsay um i've any kid that i've had that won't wear that pulls their mask down below their nose our administration team is on top of it they're great about that um and then i also just communicate with the kids how it's for everybody's safety so they'll wear it but ultimately you know if you go on our district's webpage there's several parents you know it's 50 50 split just like how it is everywhere right now and i shouldn't be allowed to wear mass versus not but myself i wear a mask because um i'm immune compromised and i can't even get the vaccine and so that's another problem and educators are just now being allowed to get the vaccine which was a huge problem i mean we've been out on the front line this entire time being exposed constantly and so that's been a huge problem you know and doubling up and tripling up on teaching classes you know sometimes i'm teaching three teachers worth of classes because we're just such on a shortage well that was gonna be my next question is are you actually teaching other schools are you still like with with the online teaching are you teaching other schools are you still just teaching your school because from what i heard in frisco there's students that are you know teachers from other schools that are you know teaching their curriculum and stuff like that and i didn't know if you're in uh what district and uh what's what high school uh we should never mind we shouldn't say um but let's just say it's in the fort worth area so we'll just put it there um so it's completely different obviously than frisco but yeah i just kind of wanted to know how they were doing things on that side of the world because it seems like frisco and collin county they just kind of were the last one to do everything the last one to shut down restaurants last one to do anything and then for a while they had the highest uh you know counts whereas you don't really hear a whole lot going on in uh tarrant county fort worth area well um at the beginning of the year i was solely online teaching i teach freshman algebra and i had all of the freshman online students so i had about 250 students at the beginning of the year and then when our second grading term started they switched me to face to face and online students and then at semesters around christmas i dropped to about 100 students instead and so i would say i have still about 40 kids who are online and then my other 70 80 or face to face are supposed to be face-to-face that doesn't mean they come but they're supposed to i was gonna say is there a drop in attendance and stuff like that for the kids that are supposed to be there face-to-face there he there is a huge drop in attendance which brings in concerns of funding for districts because you know attendance is what always boils down to fun it always boils down to that funding so i mean it i mean it's just the matter of encouraging students to come i mean last year in the spring uh tea had release that they wanted us to pretty much if the students tried we passed them you know it's pandemic we never experienced this teachers were on board they understood and this year i think you have some students who are under the belief that that's how this year is going to end up happening that if enough students don't do their work that's what will happen but in return i mean i have my highest failure rate yet and i've been teaching nine years so that's crazy that was going to be my next question because you said out of the 40 students you had online how many of those actually pay attention so how many of them aren't distracted by fortnite and you know gaming and everything else that's the better question well what's really cool is that our district along with several other districts have purchased a website called goguardian and goguardian allows any student using a district device for a teacher to have access to their screen at all times and so we can turn off their websites and do different things and put them back on task so if i see a student whether they're in class or online and they're not on task i'll just turn off their youtube channel and then upload my assignment for the day and just pull it up on their computer and i'll do it as many times i need to try and get them to do some work because parents can't do everything i mean they have to work too so you know and then we have students who are at home you have to take into consideration too those students who are at home taking care of their younger siblings because the parents don't want to send them i work in a high hispanic culture school and several of those parents are hispanic cultures being hit the hardest right now from the pandemic and also the families are working a lot you know and they're taking care of their younger siblings and the parents are gone and so how do i ask my 14 15 year old student to turn in all their algebra homework plus six other classes plus take care of two younger siblings i mean how do i do that yeah that's i mean you definitely have a challenge and uh you have a lot you know and especially being in high school because i know what a two yeah what of uh unmentionable i was in high school and uh what does that mean that student who is going to intentionally sit there and refuse to work but yet you know has potential and so you just keep bugging them until they do it yeah that's devin and they keep telling you no i'm horrible at math no i can't do this but they can you know what's funny is i hate math and i've always hated math and geometry get to get out of here with this sine cosine cotangent never am i ever going to use that crap but later on in life my last you know role i was dealing with nothing but numbers all day every day and it was yeah so yes there is you need to know your numbers because at the end of the day people lie numbers don't i just think you never had a good enough math teacher i think that's what it always boils down to um yes i actually felt very sorry for my uh math teacher because she had and i feel like the like the district must have had something out for her because she had every single ass clown there was in that class and i mean we're talking like stink bombs going off and people just like never doing their homework and i mean this is before you know cell phones and smartphones and all that crap so it's like oh my god i just i felt bad so i can only imagine what kind of drama you deal with day in and day out especially with you know kids that have an attention span of a gnat you know they can't even i ask for those teeth i ask for those kids i put them in my class yeah i like that corner no i mean i put my class and you know they end up working i don't know why the kids will work for me i think it's because you know what do teenagers want right now you know the whole respect thing or whatever but they just want someone who's going to listen you know they want someone who's going to get on their level and understand so so how do you get on their level and understand is there certain means you have to do it or like you have to do it electronically i just talk to them i just you know i say why aren't you doing work and i try to understand or you know if it's an athletic student and they don't want to do work because they don't understand math i try to relate it back to whatever they do like and so it's just taking the time to build those relationships with the students is what's going to get them to do the work but with the kids online this year it's been a real struggle especially for my special education students that i haven't been able to build that self-confidence in them like i normally can so you teach normal high school and special education yeah so i teach understanding yeah so what i teach is inclusion so inclusion means that there's a general ed teacher which is me and then there's a special ed teacher and these are students who maybe just have to take a different path to understand the same stuff like a like a regular kid would understand and so they just you know are dyslexic students and things like that and so you know typically what i see is until they get to high school they've had their hand held a lot and so then when they get to high school freshman year is kind of like a slap in the face and reality check hello you got to do the work yourself yeah and i just explained to them you know you know just a heads up that um that when you hit when you hit the real world and you're applying for your jobs there's no box for you to check that i have dyslexia i have this you're filling out the same job description and job applications as the valedictorian no i mean that's a great point that's exactly right you know it's like in the real world and you know there isn't you know you're all created equally in in the eyes of who's hiring you you basically have a piece of paper that you know that they judge whether or not you're you know fit for the job so you know it's kind of like a awakening i guess you know in high school and then even more so in college because then it's a free-for-all you know uh jamie says marissa is a wonderful teacher oh i love jamie's known me since i was like seven oh really jimmy has known me for a very long time she's a she's a great sponsor of our campus as well she's an alumni to the school that i teach at and is always doing whatever she needs to do alicia says exactly good for you that you realize and and connect with them so many kids do not get that at home that's true that's a great point you know it all starts with home and if you're not getting it home then you know you got to get it somewhere and so that's good do you take the time and the initiative to uh you know connect with your students um do you guys have the 504 program does that mean anything to you yeah so there's special education and then there's 504 and so with our 504 students they get accommodations very similar to the special education program so these are your students who maybe have a traumatic brain injury or some other situation like that that they there's different routes to qualify for each program but out of all of my students i probably also have about 20 to 3504 students that receive accommodations and it makes it easier to provide those accommodations by putting them in my class because i'm already accommodating anyway and so yeah 504 is like the same route kind of as special education they just they just have a different learning path and how i always explain to my students at the beginning as i say raise your hand if you like algebra it's probably one or two kids in the class and i say by the end of this year i know i'm like by the end of this year everybody in here will at least be raised in their class saying they like my class and so that's what i tell them and i say some of you have the straight path that makes it super easy some of you have all the speed bumps and all the potholes but you're all going to get to the same path in the end right so yeah some of you just traveled the road less traveled you know um and you hit a few hurdles and some walls and some caves and you know potholes and everything else like you said along the way so let me ask you this who was your inspiration and what got you into teaching so ever since i can remember i always wanted to be a teacher um i would set like the teddy bears up on the stairs and i would teach them every saturday morning and make my parents trip over them on their way down did they learn anything i think so i think they learned to quit making messes yeah wait your parents are the teddy bears um and then i always thought i wanted to do elementary and then in college i worked for primrose and i they had me substitute i remember this like it happened yesterday i was substituting for a four-year-old class and i was teaching them what a quarter was and let me tell you i'm not gifted enough to do that oh speaking of quarter um all you millennials out there tell me what time is a quarter past 11 because i bet you none of y'all can answer that sorry go ahead no that's actually a lesson that i do the last week of school i teach them how to read a clock yeah well it's so funny the answers you get i actually asked kayla's uh kids and none of them could give me the right answer they tell them to write a clock yeah they should already know that like no no no analog yeah they can't read it and a lot yes really i always had an answer i know what an analog watch is dumbass i know how to read that i know i know military time too oh yeah well like it will be the airline industry but anyway you know if it's a quarter let's say it's a quarter past two or something they'll say it's 203 it's like 2 15. that's what well that ruined the answer i know but see they don't know that so we'll i'll spend like two three days and i'll make them watch kindergarten videos mind-blowing like they don't know what you and i would be like okay if my daughter's on here oh i want to know something i want to know molly this or my son either one of y'all if only if y'all are on here um whatever yeah tell me what uh uh uh how can i put it um like um what's a quarter past six yeah or half past the hour half past what hour eight half past eight okay okay i want to know no i don't want nobody else answering i want my kids to answer this half past eight let me know by the time i get off the show and everything and all that back to reading rainbow [Laughter] all right back to reading yeah thanks caleb yeah thanks kayla um but yeah okay go ahead keep going marissa wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait you know what i even asked my daughter one time i asked my daughter one time would you ask her who's abraham lincoln i don't know my five-year-old could tell you that he'll tell you that it's the president he's dead though that's what he would say that's all he knows so i mean and when she told me she didn't know i was going okay what are you learning in in high school uh not dead presidents apparently not anything with history not anything with you know what whatever go ahead i know that's gotta bother you patrick because it bothers me yeah it really does it bothers me i know it's gotta bother you because you're a huge history buff so i know yeah okay i'm drinking my ginger ale and listening to marissa go ahead all right so carry on you were talking about um the math and you know the the whole time thing you said that's kind of your exit exam you gotta know how to read a clock i used to keep an analog clock in my room up until this last summer and they installed digital speaker clocks in all of our rooms would you ever installed it if you're listening you installed it on top of my poster and i'm still upset about that i don't know i had a poster in my room reading rainbow sorry i did that i didn't mean to do that i'm sorry like why didn't you move the poster it wasn't like glued to the wall it was stapled to the wall they put this big box right on top of the dang poster frustrates me but it has the digital clock now and so my digital my analog clock is now not up there anymore thank you kate we're through your minute no really is that what he really said what yes yep chase said 850. did you see kayla with the oh my god i'm telling you oh my god okay this is what this is what we're going to do here and i'm glad one person one person marissa melissa is going to be teaching all the kids out there right now like this this podcast just turned into an educational session i'll tell you brought to you by reading rainbow every big number is worth five don't get it every big number so like when you get to the one it's five minutes when you get to the two it's ten minutes five plus five is ten oh okay yeah okay all right i got that just confuse the [ __ ] out of me i just look yeah she's watching yeah i just look i mean i just look up here and it says 8 20 you know 8 30 well 8 30 all right all you parents out there i want you to take your kids apple watches and i want you to put it on analog and i want you to take their cell phones and put on analog clock and get rid of the damn digital clock and let them figure that out that's what's the problem you'd be surprised at how many kids still turn their assignments in with the wrong answers too along with their i mean even if their parents help what do you mean when they turn them in the wrong okay talking about parents helping we did have a we had a pre-ap student no yeah pre-p algebra and the kid bless their bless this kid's heart the mom was the mom's heart was in the right place they emailed the kid emailed the teacher and said can i have a another redo on my test and we gave him two chances and the teacher of course said no and then they asked why and the kid goes well i fell asleep and my mom finished the test and she saw it was a bad grade so she went through it again got a worse grade but the kids told the teacher that and we were like oh thank god see that's what i was wondering how do you prevent and know if somebody's cheating like how do you know that their parents aren't helping them or in this case it sounds like the parent needs more education than the kid you know with me what i used to do i used to put all the answers on my palm by hand and kind of just you know check the oh wait wait the the the multiple choice was the easiest and i would kind of you know do this bit all right i'm not going to condone this and all you kids cover your ears right now okay for all you parents out there okay well hold on hold on hold on you remember the big pin remember it was the white pin where you had the pull out no i didn't have to pull out i had really good eyes when i was a little kid right so what i do is i print it up on like two font oh yeah all of the answers and wrapped it and put tape on the pin so it looked like it was part of the actual pen you know the writing where it says big and it had every answer and all i was doing is rolling it as i'm writing yeah nobody knew until now the secret's out the kids got real genius this year i'm gonna give it away because i'm sure a lot already know it um the most genius way i have found that the answer how they gave away answers we had one kid in my class and one kid two doors down and they opened up a google doc while they were taking the test and so what they would do is they'd open the google doc up screenshot their tests paste it in the google doc hit delete then the kid in the other room would go and hit history pull the picture up and then delete again so if a teacher ever walked by or we were watching their screen we'd never see it see this is what we call high-tech cheating man i feel like okay so we're learning so that's why that is that so that's why all the kids are the way they are all right yeah no and even if they do besides those two kids i give them credit for their cheating skills i said that was pretty good but i said the only thing it taught me is using that goguardian now we can lock their computers down i said so you can thank everybody you know everybody can thank you too but um no when the kids do cheat we had them write essays the other day and they need to learn that all i have to do is google plagiarism checking and i can get a free website and just copy paste their essay in there so we copy paste them in there and if they cheated it said 95 was cheat copied we said oh good so you did five percent that's your grade so i mean that's wow i mean that's better than most colleges and stuff oh spell your ass i'd be like yep you cheated guess what you're kicked out you just paid for this class sorry i mean there's also this new website like i'm giving out all the details i know right this is like juicy there's this new website that the kids are using where they'll copy it off the internet and it's a scrambler word site or scrambler website wait no but i got i got something that's even more high-tech than that go ahead go ahead well they'll copy it in there and it will choose new words so then it's not exactly plagiarized and it's in their own words the problem is is that when you're an online student to all my online students out there i'm always watching your screen so i screenshot it and send it to your biology and english teacher so you should probably stop bam wow damn detective marisa there goes it there goes uh all of y'all's ideas all right so here's what i heard it i don't know if this works i haven't verified for my own you know scientific purposes um apparently you can take uh plagiarized or something from the internet and put it into any type of word document and then you can change it into spanish and then take it back into that same document and then put it into english or google translate put it into english and what it does is it separates the words so that when you run those programs it doesn't catch it yeah so just another high tech also another good thing is don't use one of the first websites that pops up when you google the question because obviously those are the ones exactly those are the ones i check exactly because ain't nobody got time to go through 15 pages of google we're just going for the first five maybe i've always went through 15 pages of an encyclopedia that that's for pediatrics yeah yeah dictionary encyclopedia i literally had to turn a page you're gonna have to define that for the students they don't know what those are yeah you forget we like yeah nobody owns encyclopedias okay okay to all the kids out there that don't know what encyclopedia is or a dictionary that is a book with lots of pages with the meaning of words the dictionary oh i thought you were going to say the meaning of life are you were you saying just no were you going like this i was saying no because well well no i'm agreeing with you that that's what an encyclopedia is but i'm saying the kids go like this hey siri what does this word mean and then they just hold it up and then that's how they get their definitions now wait seriously you know what if i was if if i was a teacher i'll be putting all everybody's phones in a little basket right right when they walk in the door oh they would hate me so you can't do that for security reasons why because if one student walks up and takes somebody else's phone now you're responsible for that student's phone for getting stolen so we're not allowed to collect phones at all or if there's a fire drill i was just gonna say let's let's see what patrick's reasons why he think it would trust me i think it'd be a great idea i used to have the kids switch out their calculators with their phone and then it would just go in a little cubby and everybody had a cubby assigned to them but especially with covid now you know so but honestly if they're not on their phones the kids are on chat rooms and so i mean kids are on chat rooms in the middle of class oh yeah well mimi what kind of chat rooms don't tell me these kids are sexting i want to be like a conversation have you ever right that's a different part have you ever seen that kid that uh mr garvey he taught in the inner city yeah i love those um i would be like him i wish i could show those in class yeah i know that would be you know so patrick tell us what's your uh teacher memory like best teacher you ever had best teacher i ever had best teacher you ever had time about that experience best teacher ever had uh my english teacher english teacher what grade senior senior yeah high school yep and what made your english teacher phenomenal she was cool now i thought i mean i liked her i mean miss dettamore yeah i liked her and what school was there was there no that was not in corsicaner that wasn't in course in canada it was at trinity in euless okay yeah that's right yeah and you shouldn't have asked that because that's when i drove in the 1973 pointing at catalina [ __ ] brown hey they got a good football team but they were pretty pissed when we beat them i was just going to give away what school i work at they were pretty pissed when he beat him at their 50th reunion which was also their homecoming and we hadn't won a game in like 10 years oh yeah well yeah that's okay because one of the best coaches at trinity left he retired and he was my american history teacher in senior year when he retired uh longweaver uh was his first name steve yeah steve longweaver and you know that school's got the nicest kids though i'll say that who trinity they have some real nice kids yeah yeah back in the day i mean we you know us the 86ers we uh yeah we were we're pretty cool well no i'm talking about i mean all of the all the i think that everybody at trinity i mean they're cool whatever they have tradition and good they're good family feel that's what's nice about him so it's funny so uh marissa's school in my freshman sophomore year school were the biggest rivals so it's kind of funny that you know she's here on a podcast did you hear they changed their mascot yes don't get me started because trinity no oh there's still a trophy the school i went to freshman sophomore year they changed their names so it's not i'm not going to say what your new mascot is do you know it no it's it's a dirty thing so go ahead so i was class of 99 and when i went there freshman sophomore year so granted i moved to missouri my junior senior year so i can't really say that i graduated from that school or whatever because i graduated up in misery as i call it um but yeah that school they uh my freshman year they actually had the um confederate flag as their flag and um yes they were called the richland rebels and um yeah they changed the name and uh actually the person that was in my class was responsible for coming up with their royals name oh god yeah we used to beat the we used to beat the crap out of richland not 99 bro well i'm talking about an 80 yeah in 80 84 85. no our football team was actually pretty damn good were they mm-hmm well when i always start i always start reaching with crap well it was that's why i moved no comment no i'm just kidding but yeah we were way better than that that other school over there who halt them yeah maybe that's the one we're talking maybe that's what we're talking we don't know we don't know but yeah we did steal their buffalo all right all right both of y'all you don't need no whatever we need jesus in our lives i didn't say that yeah okay no but um yeah um i didn't partake in the um [ __ ] stealing of the buffalo or the shaving of the butt the the stealing of the buffalo i didn't hear about the shaving of the butt you're gonna light me on that one it's an old it's an old story you know um if jamie's still on she might be able to enlighten you more on the story but um what i've heard is that the buffalo used to sit in the entryway of the school before they built the new front of it and one of the pranks that richland rebels pulled was they shaved the butt of the buffalo and so there is now a bald spot on the buffalo's butt but the buffalo is now in an in car or inside of a glass case for that exact reason for it being stolen and for having his butt shaved the class of 99 [Laughter] yeah they were some ballsy people there's not pranks like when we were in high school anymore no no they don't do that man they're boring i know yeah i know trinity and bell used to do it to each other all the time i was i was a fossil ridge grad we us and keller used to go at it no really oh yeah that's true yeah false virgin keller big rivals well yeah because they kept changing the borders and stuff keller and that whole area so it was like part of it's fort worth then it's keller and then it's like yeah the rezoning and stuff that's going on over there isn't collarbone uh heritage over there too not well collierville heritage is the other direction the other direction like closer this way you're talking she's talking like 820 is halt oh okay and then fossil bridge is further down right yeah now they have even more high schools but wow damn yeah keller isd's got four high schools bervil's got three three or three yeah yeah i don't know how much fort worth has talked about when i left they were just building the birdville high school which was like literally down the street from where i lived growing up yeah and it's crazy because i drove back there a few years ago and i was like holy sh like i don't even recognize anything oh yeah they've built it up they built it up so much i'm like man this used to be out like one lane road now it's like a freaking highway going through there yeah that's crazy which is why i live where i live now on the sticks well used to be until they started building 72 houses behind here that's so sad very sad they seem to be moving slower than snails too because they've been they broke ground like three months ago and they still haven't built a single house or they still haven't even been laid concrete it's because of the um the bid no it's not the bid man it was the uh snowman good oh the snowmageddon yeah yeah they didn't work for like a week no like a month after that yeah something like yeah they didn't do [ __ ] yeah well yeah all right so going back to the teaching yeah so what other uh tricks of the trade and uh ways we can help kids cheat and get through life man i don't have any no we don't need to do that they they need to earn i know they are they need to earn they need to earn their stuff they really do i mean they need to get up off their ass and they need to learn well the problem is they ain't got no levels and no you know in in life so whereas these video games and everything they're used to they've got different levels and you know achievement yeah well i mean seriously i mean if if if i was a teacher and i could do it i would just take everything away and just throw books down on their desk and tell them to read oh no thank you that's too boring i play games and stuff in my classroom yeah what kind of games and stuff do you do to keep the kids entertained what no i'm just saying i think that would be cool i mean they're not gonna do it do what well they don't do it then i give them d hall everything's a big and then you gotta get on the show to d hall a what you gotta get them to actually show up to d hall okay then i give them another d hall if they don't show up and so then when they don't show up you suspend them oh good they got what they wanted yeah now they get to stay home and play video games good job patrick that worked out for you i was uh i don't know i was actually i always actually access actually actually yeah i was actually like you know thinking about breakfast club when i was saying all that we start school at 7 30. oh that's early what time do you land 2 50 we had to add 10 minutes so kids could exit the building in a coveted friendly fashion and what is that third floor second floor then first floor damn how many floors y'all got three floors three full floors with about four hallways three four hallways so let me ask you guys how many students is that um on a good on a normal year yeah twenty non-covered year or whatever twenty eight hundred to three thousand students three thousand students it's a small city inside that building god that's more than what's in this that's that's what trinity has yeah it's it's considered a 6 8 it's a 6a mega school it's a big school so they're not splitting it up they're just falling they're all they're all they're cramming them into into room into classrooms that's what they're doing i mean so how many kids are in each classroom on a normal year yeah on a non-vid year in an on level regular class you could have anywhere from 22 to 32 kids they max they cap them at 32. 32 like state mandated max or who i think district mandated i don't know i think the state one's more like 45. so you think mcconaughey will change that if he became governor as long as he comes into my classroom i don't care what he changes that's a fine looking man she said all right all right all right okay i wasn't expecting that one she threw you for a curveball yeah curveball right now rotten and noggin yeah okay well so let me ask you this with everything going on what would you change or what would you do different um to i guess alleviate some of the headaches you experience now or during the beginning of the vid i came up really with a really fast solution but i'm not going to say it i would say it goes again he's like i got this bright idea but nobody's going to hear it i mean teaching-wise talking about teaching-wise yes strictly online teachers and strictly face-to-face teachers because right now my online students aren't getting the attention that they need that i was able to provide first semester because before i was able to tutor them when they needed to through zoom meetings or whatever and now it's kind of like if i have time or if i find time i'll get i'll get around to it but i feel horrible saying that so thankfully the kids who are still online right now are the students who can be successful and teach themselves but what kind of 14 15 year old needs to be left alone learning algebra so i mean it's not right um but there's no perfect solution teachers are just doing the best we can i mean we've gone from a year or two ago being praised and and you know we had amazon wishlist being paid for and things like that to your glorified babysitter get your butt in the classroom so i mean it's amazing how much things can change in a short amount of time it's yeah and it's and it's sad because that's how i mean that's how society sees us is that we're overpaid babysitters is what we're supposed to be and you know when i get that and i'm fine i didn't go into this career for the money i went into this career because it's what i love and i wouldn't give up teaching for anything except i'm getting a master's degree but i mean i'm going to stay in education my whole life that's what i want to do i want to work with kids who are in low economic situations who maybe don't have a home are homeless kids is a big problem especially right now with a lot of children that we're working with in that situation and so um but yeah the biggest thing i would change is just just make it all go away you know what i'll go away make cover go away i mean i know we'll never go back to a normal yeah like what is the new normal that's the thing because it you know everything's been changing and it's gonna constantly change and like you said one minute you're being praised and then you know s hits the fan the proverbial fan and then all of a sudden now you're like you know looked down upon versus being lifted up and um you know that's just that's got to be difficult teachers are struggling this year definitely um you know we keep getting told this year we're being told to do seo lessons which is social emotional learning to watch out for student health especially because they're not used to being isolated like this but where's the teachers social emotional health learning you know once we get told to take care of yourself five more things get added to my list of things i need to do so who's gonna take care of us you know people aren't seeing that teachers are going we're leaving work at five six o'clock at night classes kids go home at three o'clock and then i'm up and then i go home i feed my son i put him to bed and then i'm up until midnight one two am getting things done again because ideally i'm teaching two different assignments i'm teaching face-to-face kids and online everybody needs their stuff graded everybody needs this then i also have all of my special ed paperwork my 504 paperwork and then i'm on a gazillion committees which is my own fault but you know you have those well those you were on those committees let's rephrase that before the vid happened before you got all these new responsibilities added to you so you were able to balance the work-life balance because it was pre-vid and then you don't know what's going to happen you know after all of this stuff has happened but going to your point you know if if they isolated teachers specifically for online and then isolated teachers you know in person how would that help would that alleviate would that help you in your situation if you were strictly online or if you were strictly you know face to face as a teacher who used to do strictly online i would say yes just because you can give that more individual attention i was able to reach out to kids i was able to text them through google voice different things monitor their progress a little bit more not just for my class but for multiple classes and now i'm so focused um you know i'm teaching six out of seven classes a day and then once i do get a break from my conference period that's my lunch period that's my run errands period that's my get copies done make my lessons meet with the other team that i'm working with and then by the time i get to sit down and actually do something i have like 30 minutes and so most of the time i'm eating lunch while kids are in my room because i just don't have time if i do eat lunch most of us just skip lunch these days right i mean we're just we're working our tails off and i'm glad that a lot of parents a lot of parents that i've talked to they understand if i respond to their email i'm really good about responding emails within an hour but this year it's more like a day or two and i always start out with i'm sorry and i always get the response of i know you're doing everything you can right now right which is really appreciative because um i know that's not always the situation in everyone's case so it's a definite difficult year for teachers you know people just need to understand we're doing the best we can you know they're still pushing for state testing we don't agree to it but we're doing what we can to get your kids there so so what is the uh district and what is uh the schooling institutes enacted or done differently to kind of help alleviate you know the teachers and stuff like that had they done anything different and then we got a snack day the other day really all right listen here school board you need to take care of your damn teachers i mean they gave us our our school board did give us a bonus check we got two bonus checks this year for fifteen hundred dollars um which i'm very grateful for thank you to my school board um but our school board we also did not get an approved pay raise so there was that i'm very grateful for that 1500 i went to pay bills so i'm appreciative of that um alicia has a good point she said uh what can parents do to help support the teachers to make y'all's life easier i think uh better for that matter i think having just showing the grace you know even if it's just a simple like i'm all about the little things sending a message you know it's not you know just hey is there anything i can do is there anything i can reach out because in the past i know as a high school teacher i'm sure it's a little easier for elementary teachers because they only have about 30 kids but for as a teacher as 130 kids it's harder for me to do the reach outs with your kid is struggling right now and i'm going to be honest i've been slacking in that area because i just don't have time so explain to me if the class sizes are 30 to 38 or whatever how do you have 130 kids so my classes are smaller right now because i'm trying to see what i can say [Laughter] they developed a what's called trailer course okay that just sounds horrible and uh my vision of that it's uh pretty much all the kids who were not successful first semester they are now retaking first semester so it pulled one of our algebra teachers so just imagine how many kids failed first semester and that's why my numbers are smaller gotcha yeah wait you said your numbers are smaller but you said 130 students so explain that math to me normally i have about 150 160 kids okay so explain that math to me listen math teachers offer spring break right now all right well contact me and answer that winning your backing session so that i know that answer so if the class sizes are 30 to 40 then how in the hell do you have 150 students on a any given sunday let's see 30 times 6 is 180 i teach special education so i don't hit 180. special education classes are regulated to naturally be smaller and so that's why i have more one-on-one i get it so my classes okay yeah normal classes so that they understand the plight that you aren't just dealing with 38 kids you're dealing with 150 180 or however yeah my classes should on i was told before covid my classes would be no more than 21 22 kids however with how things are laid out right now on my campus some classes have 21 some have 27 so it just depends um but at the beginning of the year the reason i had 250 is because they thought the best idea for my campus was to just make one teacher online so that's why i took so many kids and i'll be honest it wasn't that bad y'all have seven periods or how many periods you'll have we have seven periods a day um we are the only tested subject in the entire district that teaches six classes a day on my campus wait wait run that by me again there are seven classes a day got that part the tested subjects so what is the tested subject so your star tested subjects the end of the year exam so biology english 1 english 2 us history algebra typically those teachers get an off period plus what's called a planning period with the entire team and so they normally only teach five classes a day on my campus we teach six classes a day the algebra team does because we can't because there's just not there's not room in the budget to hire another teacher you don't have the resources we don't have the resources so we opted to teach six classes a day and give up one of our periods so that way our students could still get smaller class sizes so let's do a hypothetical thing and i'm we're going to be playing uh fortune teller right now so and this is going to go from business to to school and this is going to be eye eye opening for i think everybody um if the school bases its funding on scores test scores and and that sort of stuff which has historically been done right that's how they funding in sports too i believe it's on attendance is it all in attendance i believe so that's not my area of special then perfect example okay if it's on attendance and we got people that aren't showing up school because they're doing it online how is the funding gonna get allocated in the future because what i see is a snowball effect that's gonna be an ongoing thing where the funding is going to get pulled and you're going to be running even leaner with less resources and less funding because if the funding is mandated based on your attendance and based on your score and your scores are down because you don't have the resources see how that's like a cycle and it's just an ongoing snowball that's just gonna continually get worse and worse i mean um what are your thoughts on that well one of our sister districts right next to us is currently running they have a they called their online university i believe is what they call i'm not sure um and so because i have a friend who teaches for that and so the sister district they've already been offering online learning and so when all this happened it wasn't too much new platform for them i know that our district from what i've heard is looking into having solely online teachers next year for students who are being successful in this area and would like to continue online learning currently online students do get attendance still taken for them they have until midnight to complete the assignments for their classes so in high school that's how they kind of do the attendance okay exactly makes sense sorry go ahead oh i was just gonna say so like i just have a warm up every day it's got like two three questions on it as long as it's content related where and they answer that we're allowed to mark them present for the day and then they get marked remote present versus like normal present that's how it works got you it's it's a mess i take attendance in three different ways on campus it it takes me a good hour to a day to complete attendance god i mean i'm just thinking in my head just logistic wise it's just a cluster f of monumental proportions yeah i was thinking the same thing i'm not all i know is that our district has said that what we're doing this year we're not doing that next year we're fixing it because it's not working so i do know that much well that goes back to my question uh original question is is how do you fix the cluster i don't think there's a right way if i had my dream school yeah i would offer online learning for our juniors and seniors because we've seen that our seniors who are being successful are able to work extra hours so they can pay those bills and help their families out where is needed freshmen and sophomores i don't feel like they should be allowed or offered online courses this is my personal opinion because they're not mature enough to handle that just yet yes i understand there's there are freshmen and sophomores out there um you know 14 15 16 year olds who can't handle that but for the vast majority they can't and so i think instilling that because when they get into high school or when they get into college it's looking like colleges are going more towards digital learning anyway so let's help prep them in another way to get ready for that digital learning and that self-monitoring so what about like maybe doing a hybrid version in your freshman sophomore year so that way it kind of prepares them for their junior senior year you know what i'm saying so it's like not all but kind of like what you're doing now you're talking about half you know online and a half in person and then kind of just going all online so i know on my campus we um the algebra and the english team pushes for a flipped classroom which means that the kids are responsible for all their notes at home and then when they come in class they're spending our classes are 47 minutes so they spend those 47 minutes just practicing and getting the teacher one-on-one learning so that way it's not 20 minutes wasted teaching them the lesson they're responsible to watch it at home they come the next day with any questions that they have and so um that's really helped especially my special education students they're able to go and listen to the lesson as many times as they need to and then come with those and then i'm able to small group certain students who aren't feeling confident about the the lesson previous and then i can just help the kids and play fun games and then their 45 minutes is spent doing interactive stuff versus sit and get for 20 minutes which i wouldn't want to sit and listen to someone for 20 minutes so no that's no especially algebra i don't even listen to anybody for five minutes which is why we have a podcast exactly that's right so people are forced to listen to us for hours no i'm just kidding no uh kayla has a good point here um you know just like the workforce companies notice that many employees are more productive working from home uh like caleb being a single mom uh you know to three kids and i mean i know that was a frustration for her because she's having to drive to the kids to school then drive to work and then try to work life balance once again so i know like some industries um you know it makes life a lot easier working from home and i think you know a lot of companies and stuff have noticed uh you know a higher level of success you know working from home then you don't have all that cooler talk you don't have all that you know [ __ ] talk that goes on and everything else um i know with certain industries like patrick's over there yeah i mean you definitely can't work from home because no no no no no no i wouldn't be able to work from home right yeah so have you um noticed it being better or worse from the you know work school kids working from home or educating from home or has been better or worse like me educating from home yeah you educating you want a person oh i hated it you hated it because i love the interaction with the kids i mean that's the best part about being a teacher so if you're thinking about being a teacher every day is a different day and i could write a book on the things i've heard over nine years i mean the kids are just hilarious there's never a dull moment how many times i'm called mom a day is just ridiculous and so mama marissa that's right and so um i mean i absolutely even if they told me i i didn't have to come into work and i could work from home i'd still go into work because i'm just one of those people that when i sit in front of my computer i'm much more productive than when i'm sitting at home playing netflix in the background so yeah like i can't sleep at night because i was like there's too much stuff that needs to be done exactly my mind runs too much so i have to be up at work but um you know kid-wise kids just need to they need to be in the building they they haven't been they're too they're too young to understand how to separate those lives and so we need to help educate them on how to and that's what high school mainly focuses on is it's not just algebra and geometry and all those things it's how get this kid ready for the real world and so and trying to help parents out maybe you know because my parents worked my dad traveled monday through friday was only home saturdays and sundays and then my mom worked from 6 a.m to 6 p.m and so i really relied well i had amazing parents and i'll never trash them my teachers instilled a lot of things in me that maybe my parents were just working and they just didn't have the time to do but while i learned a lot of valuable lessons from my parents i learned a lot from my teachers as well especially being in band i learned you know punctuation and all these other things and so you know every day when my students walk out i team teach um with another teacher because technically i only have 10 kids per class that show up per day and she is the same so we just combine our classes and teach together so now there's three teachers in the room and um every day when the kids leave we're like we love you and because sometimes that might be the only i love you that kid hears all day oh i know i'm so sentimental no it's pretty sad if that's true unfortunately i mean unfortunately i mean we have students in different situations some of them you know their their parents aren't able to be around maybe they're working three four five jobs just to keep food on the table um you have other parents who have made certain choices to land them in a different type of house and then you have parents who just don't want to be as involved you know unfortunately like my son you know he only sees his dad every so often when it's convenient and so it's it's sad that that's the situation but that's what reality is these days and unfortunately that's the new norm going back to what we were originally saying you know the very beginning is you know what is the new norm and and unfortunately that's just the way it is you know it's everything's convenience and whenever it's not convenient then yeah it is what it is yeah yeah don't get me started on the dead wait weren't you just talking about that oh yeah i was bitching yeah you were he was getting heated don't even get me started on that yeah because that's a whole nother episode i think we could talk for another five hours about oh yeah let me do all the talking because i mean i you know i mean me and my kids mother i mean we we got a divorce but i did what i was supposed to do as a father and i man up and took care of my kids you know i paid what i was supposed to pay you know to help the kids out you know and everything where it went i have no clue i thought i have a feeling but you know with the with the insurance and everything i paid for insurance i helped with co-pays you know and all that i struggled you know i mean but you struggled so that your kids didn't have to and that's right that's that's the definition of being and i still do this i still do that to this day oh i know yeah so you know i mean and your kids are one of your kids is putting you through the ringer yeah yeah yeah but he knows which one yeah i know which one but i mean you can't say no to your kids you know it's it's you you you want them to have a better life than what you've that you've had you know and everything but unfortunately but unfortunately devon unfortunately you know i can look back to the 80s when i grew up in the 80s and 70s and all that i had it made you know and everything i had two great parents and um you know of course my kids were born in the early 90s and you know i mean 89 sir throwing my age out there 40 year old man okay whatever you didn't even know i was 40 until a little bit ago but now that i know i'm never going to let you live it down yeah you never let me live it down since i've known you that's right you always call me old man that's right so anyway i mean i did i did what i was supposed to do you know what i'm saying yeah i mean i can go on and on and on and on so because by god you know what if i have to do what i what i had to do i want the other guys to man up and take care of their kids too exactly that's what i want i mean he he's he's very consistent with his child support every month thank you to the state throwing that out there um well of course handle it you know yeah but i mean that's a good point because uh like you're already handling all of this stuff with with the education system and the you know breakdown of you know but then you got to balance that whole aspect of your kid and your kid's father and everything else that's just like it's a lot yeah i'm a single parent and i'm in grad school so i think everyone out on top of it holy crap yeah somehow i manage all that i think you just like to punish yourself that's what i think that is you know they told me at work on friday they said you're forbidden to work and i said well i'm going to go work on sunday but that's about it and i said glutton for punishment that's what that's called my boss joked about turning off my key card so i couldn't get into work because she knows i'll go do work oh but that's the teacher of me i'm constantly working reaching out you know i had a student who found out on friday night that she made the cheer squad and the first thing i did eight o'clock at night sorry sorry boss 8 o'clock at night i'm sending her a text message saying congratulations i'm so proud of you and so i mean it's the little things that count you know well yeah i mean it's a little things to the kids and also to to employees from big major corporations i mean you know hey good job today that goes a long way it really does that attaboy does go a long way you know they never said attaboy no they call it that's what they call it it's called adam okay when i know that i turned the plane really fast i just kind of you know patted myself on the back you know i'm saying because i knew i wasn't going to get it from anywhere else but except for you know a couple people that i know for sure that would give it to me you know and everything so it's all right i mean i know from personal experience like i actually built a folder inside of my uh outlook my browser that just said attaboy and so any type of praise would go in there but yeah mine says you're awesome you're awesome is that what your folder says it definitely says that it definitely says that because i've been uh i think everybody needs that you know it's like whenever you're feeling like you're having a [ __ ] day and everything's just hitting a fan just to go read that be like okay i can do this one of my principals uh one of my bosses one time said you keep a folder in your filing cabinet and that's where you put all the student letters you get so when you're having those bad days you pull the student letters out and you remember you remind yourself why you chose this career exactly and i think everybody should do that in every career not just in education i think that should be because we all go through some you know experiences and whether we like we just gotta deal with it you know it's how you persevere and how you survive and how you handle it that's the true definition of it defines your character yeah well i wanted to keep my fall from southwest but they wouldn't let me oh that's i went old school i have a paper one so i'll just pick it up well i had it i mean i had stuff from you know way back i mean accommodation letters like from her kelleher you know he passed away um the founder of southwest um colleen and a couple of uh you know a couple from gary that's the ceo and that's it but i think i got more from her than colleen than i did from the actual ceo so that's all i'm going to say about that so patrick tell me how did that make you feel what getting accommodation letters from the founder i mean did it make you feel about that particular founder versus the others because you got yeah it i mean it may it it made me feel good when i got accommodation letters i mean the great flood of 06 you know when when we flooded out there at love field i was out there at 12 o'clock in uh the afternoon well yeah 12 o'clock in the afternoon you know i didn't leave there until the next morning when um um day shift was coming in at five o'clock i remember that flood you know it took my first car yeah what do you mean it took your first car that little um that uh where did i drive plum that plum dodge neon oh my god you drove a neon too oh so did my sister they were matching plum cars she had a plymouth and i had a dodge my dad thought was it a buy one get one free like what the hell i know how many plum cars do you find i flooded mine my dad told me i had to drive home and i said dad the roads are flooded and he said you have to drive home i said okay and i flooded it and my mom's response to him was well now you get to buy her new car because it's your fault well uh kayla's not here to tell the story but uh she tried to kill her uh neon and um apparently i guess they float and uh apparently they can run underwater they're like submarines mine didn't float yours didn't float no really apparently she tried to like literally tried to kill this car was she in new orleans in new orleans yep uh when i was in fort worth i got rescued by the hottest firefighter and his mom wow his mom was driving the fire truck that's kind of weird she was like i swear she was like 70 or 80 years old she was on fire truck and they saw us and they were going to rescue some cops who got their car stuck so he pushed us out of the way and then i sat there until my dad came because then the water receded so we flooded again and then my friend get out of the car and she started pushing sorry kathleen and i had the i had the emergency brake on and he was yelling at her to push harder and then i realized him okay so if you don't know i know marissa as uh not exactly being the brightest crane in the box sometimes come on now hey i was being nice i'm i'm just living which i was very fearful for my blonde self yeah i was very fearful for the uh educational system whenever i heard you're gonna be a teacher was like oh god yeah i was too when i found out my niece was going to be a teacher you know i'm a great teacher ask any of my former students they all will tell you i'm their favorite yeah hey being a favorite being good are two totally different things hey my test scores show that i'm a good teacher it's also not that hard to pass the test okay oh he got knows how to use a calculator oh kayla said she did yeah she i do it they float yep they float just like everything i flooded mine too and they float yeah they float yeah well i guess it kind of floated if i didn't keep my foot on the brake it was gonna start moving oh yeah and if you didn't have the e-brake on my bad i can't find the e-brake in my new car i don't know where it's at oh jesus hey i saw um during that during that flood i saw um me and one of my supervisors uh we went out um it was the old terminal left field and we went out to the sides where uh dallas police would park their cars and all that and me and me and uh gary were looking out and everything his name was gary tuffin and uh me and gary tuffin would look out and we'd go uh oh uh that's not good uh because the water was all the way up was all the way up to the lights of the police cars uh-huh i go wonder what laura miller's gonna do now oh my god that's a name i have not heard in forever what's laura miller gonna do is she gonna blame the officers or is she gonna blame the airport who's she gonna blame she'll blame everybody else but herself of course of course so you know he goes dude i don't know and i really don't care we gotta give we gotta get back down there you know and everything and i said yeah we got a job to do we ain't got time for this yeah no we were shut down we were shut down for the whole total eight hours of everything i mean and this was that blood you were talking about earlier yeah the great flood of 06. i'm just making sure yeah we've talked about a lot of topics yeah and so anyway and wonder that one of the weirdest things that i mean what kind of scared us a little bit was that when me and gary were standing at at uh uh at the back room door and everything we're standing there and we're smoking and we're just you know just doing this and all sudden we just kind of just follow something and i go hey man is that a propane tank oh my god and it goes looks like it uh dude it's going out to the runway you know and we still had airplane we still had some planes trying to land and all that and i mean it's all flat out there so it's all going to flood there was already a couple inches of water out on the ramp and on the runway but yeah the airplanes are still coming in huh some uh some were coming in i think the i think some that were like um on final and everything and so they just went ahead and come on you know come on in and um i saw a couple of pro trucks um go out to you know literally go out to runway and pick up the propane tanks you know what i'm saying and yeah we didn't really want any explosions that day you know with the protein tanks in the planes yeah that's not a good combo that's not good you know you know i got a funny story about propane tanks so we went uh you ever been to mustang island you know where that is yeah this is uh south texas yeah so uh me and a bunch of my guy buddy friends we uh went down there for spring break which ironically is now um and we took some of those little mini propane tanks yeah and we decided we were going to throw them in a fire oh jesus oh you're an idiot hey i wasn't the yeah it might have been an alcohol played a little bit of effect so you're telling me i'm not smart because i drove a car into a flood but you threw propane tanks in a fire pit i didn't say i stood over the damn thing i just said oh yeah no but you said that you threw you threw you you threw the caster into the fire yeah where do you think it's gonna go it's just gonna go poof and stay there so it's gonna shoot out no that's what we thought too two hours later still didn't blow up well then it was freaking empty yeah i was like was there any gas in there i don't know i wasn't gonna go poke and find out no pain marissa not gas see i was smarter than that it's like my dad when he comes over he's like we're gonna grill something on the grill and i go oh you mean my yard decoration he's like is there any gas in there to go i don't know there's a tank i don't grow anything i got a nice little george foreman it works just fine for the single mom oh my gosh don't judge me no airfryer is the best especially if you got kids airfryers that's what's up yeah my son eats five things that's it what's he eat let's hear it pepperonis cheez-it waffles cereal mcdonald's only chicken nuggets and french fries and uh anything that's sweet so like cake candy all that but he doesn't get that very often gotcha yeah he's got his only meat he'll eat right now is pepperonis i've stopped trying to battle that it was there's a whole story behind that but we got time go ahead it's not a it's not a good story it's a sad story oh okay no we don't want it you don't want sad stories we talk about how he busted his chin open at school what recently or yeah you didn't see it so i put on facebook he had fallen at um he was walking up the steps at school and he fell and hit the stairs just right and busted his chin open and so he's not insured right now oh no and so uh if you saw that eye roll yeah i was gonna say how do you feel about that yeah tell by that eye roll that you uh feel uh from the state of texas there's another individual who parents this child who's responsible for that yes who's currently not being insured so he's not insured so thankfully um i don't have to normally it's 50 50 but because of that it's now 100 the other person so i had to take him to the hospital and he got four stitches and so that was a piece of cake taking him out at the doctor's office was another thing because it took four nurses and a doctor to pin him down to get those out so oh he had that superhuman strength he does have that superhuman strength and so they got him out and in the process they slightly reopened it so then he had to have the tape and so thankfully he's doing all right he's got a little scab but you know five-year-old boys i'm surprised it took this long for him to get injured i was just gonna say hey i got a scar see i got a scarf from when i wrecked my bike this isn't even a motorbike or is this a it's a regular bike dude a bicycle a bicycle bicycle a bicycle he had a little um what's it called the card on the back so it made that noise yeah i had that the reason why i thought i had to get it was a tricycle because you know you're being short and all and [Laughter] what's my what's the name of this log fu how about that devin is just jealous because he can't get on a bike yeah yeah oh my god you know i broke my garage obviously no no i wrecked i i i jumped around i lived in irving i was uh eight eight nine i jumped a a ramp yeah i went pretty high did you have fun doing it oh yeah i had fun doing it and then when i landed i landed wrong and i mean you can still see the scar i mean it's right there it's pretty cool oh my god now kayla wants us to like compare scar stories oh no no no oh i got a bunch of scars i do too hello one right here i was gonna say i got one right there oh yeah when you got that one i forgot yeah i got it i got it oh no i got i got scars all over my body see luckily the camera hides it over there i got one besides all right i got one right here i didn't even know about that whenever i we were setting this podcast up that the scar is gonna be on the other side yeah i got one underneath my chin i got one like right here when i was in a car accident that's why i have a go-to so it covered the covers it up so what happened with his car incident did i know about this like i mean i know i've heard kind of details here and there but like i haven't i was like was did i know you then no were you were you here locally was this locally it was a local okay gotcha i don't really like talking i know that's what i'm not gonna talk about i'm gonna go on the next story yeah i don't like talking i could i could sense your vibe yeah thank you for watching just don't kill my vibe yeah thank you for once so what what are you up to uh besides teaching and going on doing teaching grad school single mom yeah guys all that what do you do for fun what's fun marissa you want to choose it oh yeah let me chew it in the microphone and piss off devon there you go thanks you asked hats eat some cheez-its it was all good there you go i thought that was pretty funny chase says the fact that he wait chase you have a scar you had a damn cast on come on i know he's gotta have scars notice how all these people with all these scars are males so i'm screwed with my child i'm surprised he hasn't broken a bone yet i'm not gonna win i was gonna say give him time give him time oh it'll happen he just started baseball so that's i guess a hobby that we're doing he was in it last year but with the pandemic he only got to go to two practices have you ever had a broken bow i've broken toes and fingers that's it i really suck at basketball that's why i broke your toes and fingers that's how i broke my feet oh your dog almost took that out i think she wants to go outside i think she does are you oh yeah she wants to go outside i can hand i can handle this devon i can handle this right quick yeah i can handle it oh good luck i gotta sit over here because you gotta handle the board oh no you handle it i'll let her out oh then how are we gonna tell stories about devon now no yeah y'all can go ahead and talk [ __ ] hold on i'm gonna go no because i was gonna like make a pit stop on the way back after later all right go do your thing go let her out okay god hey man she's like well she's mugging you like about 10 minutes ago she's so cute i know she's like come on daddy chase says i see willow in the background yeah she's trying to make a special guest appearance but um she wasn't supposed to be on the show today and oh yeah look at that it's beautiful it's the ghost of patrick right there so yeah i've noticed already there's like um going back to the math stuff that there's stores that aren't even they've already taken their signs down um qt out by my campus that we go to frequently on wednesday the first day it started none of the employees have masks on um half the people walking in and out i think people were kind of like do i wear it do i not wear it and it actually made me really double double think because i don't know about you but teachers love taquitos from qt i don't know why we just left i don't know why it's like a that's a thing i don't even know i think it's you know from whataburger i heard was on point but never yeah i think it's because we can eat them really quick in between passing periods and so and then we can just go back to wait have you had the buffalo chicken ones no because you remember that one time you gave me hot sauce because you thought it would be funny and then i was crying and chugging a gallon of milk yeah that wasn't funny yeah dude that's all my friends that's part of the initiation i got to see how strong you are yeah i remember you're like come over for taco night i will never forget that or forgive you for that i remember my mouth was on fire forever no we always get the stick and cheese ones okay yeah i know which ones because they only have a little kick to them do you do use any of their sauces with it or you just eat it just as is as is okay because they got some chipotle sauces they got some good sauces in there so making it hotter when i just said i can't they have ranch as well oh you can't go wrong with ranch exactly that's what i'm saying and i got jalapeno ranch i think too which i know oh my god i'm again so yeah i mean like none of the employees had them and i was shocked but i mean it makes me really double double taken um a lot of this is not true the employees had what mask on oh going to qt or what okay yeah qt and so we really have i know a lot of teacher friends we've really talked about we're getting all this exposure at work if we can live you know it's a personal choice i have nothing against somebody who doesn't want to wear a mask or anything like that but again if i get sick as a single parent who's taking care of my kid because i my only options are his dad lives an hour and a half away well we know the state ain't taking care of them but go ahead exactly and so i mean like and what am i gonna do send them to my elderly parents house i can't do that and then my sister and then well they have four kids they can't take another kid so i mean if i get sick with kovid i'm stuck and then do i take off work or do i tough it out because i mean i have to pay the bills i'm the only one there is well that goes back to what i was saying about earlier about um you know the class sizes and everything else but in actuality you're dealing with 150 different faces or as i call them petri dishes of cesspools of all sorts of bacteria and who knows how many people they've been around and if they've ever washed their hands or not washing their hands i mean high school is a little bit better a little bit not much no you're like no because in elementary school you stick them in the bathroom and now the newer elementary schools have they only have the restrooms in the bathroom and then they have a one giant area where all kids wash their hands boys and girls and it's visible so the kids go in and they do what they need to do and then they come out and it's one job like a horse drop type thing or whatever you know yeah like you know the yeah those yeah just have the kids come wash their hands real quick and the teacher's right there to watch them oh to make sure they actually wash your hands yeah the newer schools all have that now in high school i'm not about to go stay in the bathroom while 14 through 18 year old goes and uses the bathroom and so no that's kind of creepy yeah that is that's like next level no thanks i think yeah i just assume they wash their hands but i tell the kids like the kids get it that you know they're older and so i say let's be real you need to use hand sanitizer because i don't know what y'all do you go in you rinse your hands under the water if you even do that right maybe we're like you touch soap for 30 seconds or less and then i said but realistically how long are you supposed to be washing your hands and the kids can't answer the questions and i'm like okay so they don't even know quarter past 10 exactly so they they have installed that's 10 15. the kids don't know it you know that the kids don't know that but anyway go ahead all right oh yeah by the way i'm back they installed uh patrick is now in the room ladies and gentlemen boy she almost tripped me down the downstairs man is she no she felt that bad yeah she had to go that bad sorry didn't mean interrupt so what did she do b-line out there i mean i was going down the stairs and she cut me off oh yeah you gotta be careful man yeah i almost like slid into the door and she saw it coming here yeah no she was like yeah i mean she's just like her ex-girlfriend like about to come stab us or something yeah i need you now we're here sorry i didn't mean interrupt that was rude of me no it's all good we'll get back to what we're talking about hand washing and lack thereof and using an instant sanitizer i know in the high schools they've installed multiple sanitation like hand sanitizer and there you go right here you never know i'll just podcast we make sure that everybody is sanitized they have hand sanitizers between like every classroom and all that and so the kids will just go poop and walk right in class and now i have kids go poop and then they walk right i'm just saying what you stated yeah the kids are real good about it and then also teachers are required to um on top of everything we do at the end of class we have the students stand by their tables and then once they leave you know passing periods six minutes so in between that six minutes while also needing to do my hall of duty and making sure the kids are in the hall too long i have to wipe down every seat and every spot and so it's like a relay race and so yeah yeah that's kind of like the casino yeah right now what the casino's doing so let me ask you do you have one of those like fitbits or any type of thing that counts your steps or anything like that no i should but i'm walking a lot less than i normally do because i'm not walking around the classroom as much and it stinks but i have tables in my room so bless the hearts of the teachers who have desks because at least a table i just go and wipe the whole table right how does that go yeah okay and then sound effects it's a thing and then those people at the who have desk i mean that's a lot to wipe down and we're not allowed to have the kids wipe them down or spray because they don't know because you can't trust them little petri dishes no see it's not safe for them to touch it but it does what the sanitizer what are they gonna get melt because they're one big germ or like apparently they'll get injured but it doesn't matter if the teacher gets injured so i don't know uh we're allowed to touch it but not them their their lives are more important in years that's what that boils down to that's fine i'm irreplaceable then who's going to educate them exactly i will i can oh geez what was that for what was that for will's got enough problems bro we don't need you attitude i mean maybe history but i haven't seen your algebra skills yet so oh i suck at albuquerque algebra algebra algebra no i say algebra no you kind of stuttered yeah i stuttered but i'll suck at that history i'll be good oh he's a history major he's been going off for like the last three hours earlier that's what my brother-in-law teaches we're all teachers who jason yeah jason oh look at you remember i remember things and stuff he teaches freshmen i suck at names too oh yeah he teaches freshman um history out there in castleberry i can't speak anything about casper you don't know anything but he loves it he says kids are great where's castleberry it's a south side fort worth right okay no it's no i think it's a north side north side of fort worth no it's not north because i'm north no castleberry is out castleberry's out all right hold on we got the listening audience for a reason y'all tell us where the hell castleberry castleberry is like off of 820 going out going out to 20. yeah but that's like south of it's well now you're changing your answer to west i think it's west it's definitely not north and it's not east no it's not north i think it's west well you're the one who said north no east west jesus now he's saying east oh my god [Applause] i think so because i think i think it's like going out there like towards the mineral wells they have great kids out there he's got a good track team so shout out to castleberry track team this year he says y'all are great to uh and so and then my sister she teaches at a private lutheran school and she teaches fifth sixth seventh eighth grade science okay so d uh do you think that lyndon johnson had anything to do with kennedy assassination you know i i've lived in texas since i was seven and i've never been out there to dallas of where it happened what the hell is wrong with you well i have this all right all right so now patrick now's your opportunity to teach a teacher um about history because apparently she needs it no i took history online in college for a reason okay so google search okay okay so so do you think johnson was in on kennedy assassination i have no idea yes or no i don't know she doesn't know enough to answer that exactly god okay i think all right this is my opinion uh oh there she goes what the hell she had now she's outside she's outside you don't remember the whole story i didn't know she was still outside my bad you need to get a doggy door okay yeah see here here's my deal about the kennedy assassination and people probably you know disagree with it no the hell did i get her here okay i don't know no i asked her i said so she was talking about history and i just asked her i mean i mean does she i think we were actually talking about maps and where castle castleberry and on another note devin you're bougie why am i boozy cause you have a little rubber thing on your straw cause oh cause i don't wanna put metal in my mouth that's silicone it's cause you're no hand sanitizer oh look look look chase called me bougie bear bougie bear i don't know chase but we should probably hang because chase gets it ah yep kayla says uh hey you can't break teeth with silicone thank you drive through silicone is great for a lot of other things too about that the person who like fell on it and died fella what a metal straw yeah it like poked them in the eye and like well you know what if they would have had uh silicone tips i think they would right there they wouldn't die and i just realized i didn't even have that on camera your silicone tip yes my silicone tip this right here silicone tip that she's making fun of it's okay i guess i kind of get it because when you put like a warmer cold drink in there it makes the straw colder warm too that's right you don't want it to see it's science it's very masculine hey sorry my straw is not pink yeah yeah yeah kayla says teeth are important yeah they are sorry didn't mean to do that yeah so are microphones when you headbutt them with your headphones patrick what are you doing you're supposed to tell us about history oh now he's going to pull the microphone no uh-uh y'all ruined the moment i'm not i'm not gonna oh now the history segment is gone yeah the history segment is gone oh hit my phone all of a sudden started buzzing and working uh-oh is it working you know it's you know what's funny is you were having that phone issue right yes look now it's working what hold on there's no more glitches okay i just want to point this out that the software and his hardware and his board was not working at the beginning and her phone was glitching the software wasn't working and we were talking about ghost and we were talking about how this room is freaking haunted and sh was not working the video was cut out but the audio was working and now the freaking everything's working everything's working okay stop talking about that so again why why is this and this is live by the way i want to know why is this harness i don't know i mean i've known devin since i was 16 let's see how many years is that a long time anyway go ahead it's like 16 years i've known you and i've always known this room to be haunted i don't know why though okay so how this room became haunted in the the original story or not real original story but what it happened was you know because all good stories start out is what happened was um i was in here with the girl that i was dating at one time and um we were the first problem yeah there was first problem yeah that's probably why i was haunted she's probably crazy yes um true that i cannot confirm nor deny that um so anyway so we were uh sitting here and we're having a conversation and all sudden this black shadow thing ran underneath her chair and we were both in the middle of a conversation we both stopped talking hey we're like did you see that this has been fun devin i think i'm gonna have to go now [Laughter] yeah so we saw that that black shadow thing and then it literally disappeared underneath her chair it was the weirdest and i've never seen anything like that in my life and you know obviously been videoing and shooting photography and all that sort of stuff for 20 plus years um but then what's even crazier than that is my dad and me and my mom we were all downstairs and my dad said who's standing by the front door and i'm like what are you talking about i look down the hallway he's like no there's somebody standing at by the the foyer where he used to have the um there used to be a little foyer table entryway yeah so yeah and he said who's standing over there like who's at your house and i'm like oh what so that's why i have cameras everywhere now because if something's going to happen i'm going to freaking record it i'm going to catch it it's the first time i've ever seen you use this room like it's always been the off limit room like you just don't come in here well it used to be an office then it was a bedroom and then it became it was a collect all yeah it was a collect all now the front rooms will collect all because it's you know the hottest room in the house so yeah yeah you're good yeah yeah you should definitely get some ghost hunters up in here you should go back and listen to you leave the cameras on yeah right in your microphones and stuff streaming 24 7. i wonder if you listen to the beginning of the podcast if you'll catch anything i'm wondering uh so my cousin runs a paranormal company up in new york pennsylvania area so yeah if you want to listen to the footage and slow it down and see if you catch anything because a lot of weird crap was happening in the beginning and my phone was glitching like your phone was glitching without working we actually caught that on video yeah chase says it used to be his room it used to be before it was the podcast room you speak chase's room so did chase leave something behind probably no i was haunted before he gave me well nobody nobody like nobody died here nobody died there no that i know of well i mean state law that they're supposed to tell you if somebody died here that's true and i think the person owned it before me yeah they were younger so how long did they have the house before i think that i was married to a woman and they divorced but that's as much as i heard and then he sold the house thereafter so i don't know if she mysteriously went missing now you got me wondering now i gotta like research the history of this damn house i would have already done it dude i don't want to know sometimes ignorance is bliss you've lived here like 20 years 16 years this november will be 16 years one day oh yeah so yeah so see the length of length of me knowing you that's how long this creepy room's been around it's been a hot minute yeah that's okay me and ghost we get along i haven't seen or heard anything except for like i said in the beginning something like running in here no in the attic oh i swear i've seen things in here but of course i was drinking kool-aid those days so you never know yeah you never know what you're going to see when you drink kool-aid kool-aid you never know what you're going to see when you take a hit of acid either well i wouldn't know from person i wouldn't know either but old uh why don't you tell us about this yeah oh my god i'm listening [Laughter] so did you play dark side of the moon or like what did you do like how did that work exactly yeah i did play uh pink floyd yeah so what kind of things did you see and what kind of experience did you have said i had an imaginary friend was it imaginary friend it was a well or was it an actual person it looked like a person but they said that i always talked to a wall who said that you were talking to all friends that's kind of like talking to my ex-wife well yeah talking to yeah i get it damn wall you know not listening to a damn word i say so what did you see like your friend said you were talking to the wall but what did you actually see it's almost like psychedelic [ __ ] i know but like what it's just i mean flowers i saw i mean just like okay i had a party one night at my at one of my part at my apartment i was 22. and so let me ask you guys are you a big part here like uh i used to be way back in the day you used to throw some pretty uh badass parties all right go ahead carry on i'll do some parties i i could i could sense that since you are i guess in charge of the trinity class reunion and stuff so speaking of which you all better register or i'm gonna have to come after you yeah i need to i need to get a i need to get a venue so sorry to distract you from your uh psychedelics but yeah yeah but i mean yeah there was a co i mean there was one guy he thought it was kind of like an upstairs studio thing and uh he thought he could actually fly and um [Music] it just when he leaned forward now he's just looking up going no dude don't do it don't do it no no no and once he leaned and i knew he was coming down he started flapping really fast he landed he landed straight on the floor oh my god yeah and uh he was and i remember everybody was just standing over him with the beer going hey dude you all right what was am i going to call 9-1-1 no man he's alright he looked good to me [Laughter] you know yeah everything so and anyway i mean i've i've seen i i've seen just yeah i've seen stuff it's like sometimes when i take the chain text and it's vivid dreams it's almost like that like you say vivid dreams what what makes them different than your regular drink i mean vivid as far as what almost realistic i had a student just a couple weeks ago she uh fell asleep in class and she started screaming and i knew she was in deep sleep because i heard her like heavy breathing snoring and she um started screaming don't kill me don't kill me and the whole class was dead silent because they were taking a test and we were like what and so i walked over and i'm trying to wake her up and she wouldn't wake up and and then she was like save me save me and she's screaming this and i'm like okay in the nine years i've worked i've never had a kid do this do i call the counselor do i call the assistant principal like who do i call well she wasn't my student um the team teacher i'm with i just looked back at her like she's your kid you come deal with this and so she don't call the call we got her to wake up but she was like hysterically crying she really thought she wouldn't know where she was she didn't realize she was still in class she seriously thought someone was chasing after her trying to kill her in her dream and she was shooking up for a while it took us a while to get her to calm back down and realize that it was it was fake it was totally fine but have you ever messed with somebody that was having a dream yeah when they're when they're sleepwalking i did it with my kid the other day when they're sleepwalking tell me about that experience my kid was sleepwalking calling for his friend because they want to go play dinosaurs and uh he was looking for me and he walked and he started walking out the front door my five-year-old unlocked the door in the middle of the night at midnight and started walking out the front door and i was like the dinosaurs are this way and he walked back and went back to bed but yeah he walked right out the front door so i'm gonna install better locks on my door yeah it sounds like you need to put him at the top of the door so he can't reach him you know what yeah you know what my daughter used to do my daughter i mean my daughter would get up in the middle of the night if she's hungry molly would used to get up in the middle of the night and she would make herself a sandwich and she leave the fridge open and everything and leave everything out no she put everything back she would put everything back she'll make herself a sandwich and um she'll get some chips and everything and i could be in the bedroom and and all about here is a so that was one of one of the dr peppers i was going to say it sounds like a soda pop or something that's what i was thinking yeah yeah yeah that was a good sound effect yeah you were all right there with you exactly what you were talking about yeah yeah so um yeah i mean she used to do that all the time and she's just like i think that she used to sleepwalk and everything and um her mother did it a little bit too but um uh where was i going with this i don't know you like me yo yo the dreams and um i mean and we would wait wake up the next day and i would say hey molly how was that sandwich she goes sandwich i never i i never eat a sandwich i i didn't i said you ate one in the middle of the night like at two o'clock in the morning you even turned on the tv you were watching yeah watching the movie oh dude and everything and she goes but dad i don't i don't i don't remember if she couldn't say her ours she goes i i don't remember watching a movie or anything like that i just wake up in my bed i don't know yes i always drink a whole duck pepper ate all the chips i mean you even opened the chips and we can hear you you know so yeah that's you know i never got on to my daughter about that but i mean my son he kind of did the same thing in a little bit but he likes to sleep well he can't sleep as much as what he wants to but collar says her uh aunt orders odd items off of amazon while asleep so this is a good segue has anybody oh wow has anybody because i know this is happening has anybody ordered some crazy stuff that you're like when did i order that it showed up at your house and what was it have you seen the tick tock of the lady who sleep sleep walks yes i was actually going to talk about that when yes or she goes outside naked she goes outside her pajamas and then all of a sudden the camera catches her running back like oh no i did it again i did it again i did it again she's got boxes on herself because she was naked yeah actually i was gonna ask the audience uh if they knew that link to that because that that was hilarious she's so funny she posts them all the time yeah and i love how the husband is just sitting back and just like just observing him observing and like dying laughing but he's like just he's like i can't be loud because it's gonna wake her up and you can't wake him up because people are violent when you wake them up so it's kind of like a catch-22 it's like you can't help but laugh but then again you can't laugh because you don't want her wake up and then start swinging at you ass or you know she's in the kitchen grab a knife and come after you yeah so kayla said that she ordered 20 cases of cokes and didn't know until it was delivered i hope you like coke right yeah so has anybody done that anybody in the studio audience or have you marissa have you ever ordered a bunch of stuff and then didn't remember ever ordering it once until it showed up or you happen to preview or look at your uh purchase history and you're like i never remember ordering that no but my niece when she was two ordered uh a movie off of amazon that's when we realized what parental settings were uh-oh so what was this no it wasn't a bad movie it was a kid's movie it showed up and my mom was like who ordered i was wreck-it ralph it was the first wreck at ralph where like we never even heard that movie so we didn't know what it was and then she was two so she didn't know any better she was just pushing buttons on the ipad and my mom had a 26 movie of back when dvds cost that much children yeah i was going to say 26 dollars for those blue rays oh yeah my niece is 12 now so or 11 i don't know she's somewhere around there so let me ask you this do you remember vcr i do i also remember because my sister worked at blockbuster oh where if you returned your video and it wasn't rewarded what was that you would get charged what's blockbuster be kind rewind remember that be kind and rewind and they would charge you a dollar if they had to rewind it for you what's blockbuster oh my god that's bhs that's a company that i told a few of my friends that were invested in the company to sell all your shares i don't get it what's blockbuster blockbuster for you youngins out there was this a video establishment man i know what that was i know you do but probably half the damn listeners don't i guarantee chase probably doesn't [Laughter] uh today's blockbuster where you had to be the first one there on opening night or you would just be greeted with the pictures of the movies if they were all rented out then you'd have to get on a waitlist like a library guess who owns all the damn pictures that blockbuster used to have those little cards with the little movie titles and all that stuff in you have those i have all of them what are you gonna do with that i don't know but i have them all what car you have the cart like the ones that you put in front of the movies yeah like and it would it would be out so it'd be like the card that told what was supposed to go there like a placeholder type thing oh yeah it would have been nice if like you could like flip them around they had like said sold out or something because i would go over there like all excited like there and you're like oh it's a piece of cardboard or there be that jerk probably you who would go and stick a different movie behind the card white jerk definitely definitely oh i thought you looked at me no i'm looking at devon i bet you he would go and take a different movie and put it behind it just to get someone's hopes up right right okay of course when i was little i just watched dennis the menace and kindergarten cop on replay kayla says alex orders odd things horse heads puppets backwards glasses horse heads yes what like those rubber ones that you pull yes not not dead horses like in you know the uh what was that movie damn it godfather no it's the the rubber that's before my time i know it was before my time too that's why i had to struggle to remember it remember the godfather yeah with a horse's head in the bed yeah yeah to send a message oh yeah i remember that damn i'm telling you i'm explaining to somebody that was alive when the [ __ ] was happening well mom you know my parents my parents don't let me watch the godfather in the early 70s okay i wasn't even born in the early 70s i know that but my my parents would not let me my parents were strict i bet and they they would not well they did take me to go see my first rated r movie i mean walking tall with joe don baker okay y'all don't know who he is because marissa's looking at me like who the hell is joe don baker anyway uh i mean i even saw pasadena venture in towering inferno oh let me tell you a story about the towering inferno go ahead weren't you just talking about this the other day yeah well see when i was a kid right uh-huh i'm talking i'm talking to marissa oh sorry about when i was getting no i'm just kidding well that was a kid here hold on let me let me let me switch the screen so that way it looks like you're talking to her yeah yeah anyway when uh when i was a kid i i got caught playing with matches on the side of the house i was like um i was like five six seven somewhere in there eight nine ten eleven twelve no i wasn't and no because i learned my lesson by then and so anyway i got caught by my dad my dad grabbed me of course by the neck and he dragged me into the house and set me down and says okay so how are we uh how are we going to punish pat for playing with matches you know in on the side of the house and i said you don't have to punish me dad that's fine you know and everything and mom will come back and say okay here's your choice swat grounded or go see a drop-in movie that's okay i'll go see a drop-in movie that's a complete no-brainer yeah i know i and i said i'll go see a drop-in movie that's fine okay and so anyway we drive we go out there and i'm sitting in the back seat with rachel with my sister and uh they tell me get in the front seat so i get in the front seat and i'm sitting between mom and dad and rachel's sitting in the back rachel ends up falling asleep and i'm i'm dozing and mom grabs my ear and starts twisting it and keeps making me watch almost a two and a half three hour movie of towering inferno what fire there's what fire does to people that was my punishment made me sit through that damn thing it was boring as [ __ ] how long was that but now it's a long movie about three hours and gosh i mean o.j was in it was really yeah and he did it did what he let the fire oh okay no no no no my brain went somewhere else yeah he said he did it and i'm like going oh what did he do no but no but i mean that's i mean that's how that's how my parents punished me on on the fire part you know and everything and you know i don't know it was just a it was just it was looking at that time i just i didn't want to stay awake i didn't want i don't want to watch it i didn't care to see it or anything like that but i look back at it and i'm going huh okay i see what i see why they did it you know and everything and they didn't want to give me any squads and i think it was because mom and dad wanted to see the movie too and so they just decided to say okay you know what we're gonna go see towering inferno we're gonna kill two birds with one stone yeah there you go we're gonna we're gonna punish pat and then we're gonna we're gonna be able to watch the movie too i mean i went to the driving movies last night but we didn't see no towering inferno the tiring wait wait wait a minute hold on hold on towering inferno was a good movie they got drunk came out in 1972 yeah this is why fort worth is better than dallas oh shut your filthy mouth don't wait don't be good don't be starting this argument i've been trying to convince you to move out there yeah coyote drive-in movie theater it's out in fort worth um in between downtown and the stockyards they have like four different drive-in theaters and so explain to me how to how that system works does it like plug into your stereo system like how does it work did they give you a little box like they did back in the day yeah i would love to have that you know what if i had the movie if i had the movie if i had the money thank you for interrupting that conversation i would i wasn't asking you i was i would open a driving movie the quickest way to make money that's it sorry each uh each different um screen has a radio station that you tune to in your car and so you just turn it on okay so it's a okay so a certain frequency is that how they did it oh that's not how they did it back then no that's not that's how they do it now that's not how they did it back then we had this big the boxing right it was a big silver [ __ ] box window and you roll the window up and you turn the volume all the way up and you get this little green spiral thing and you set it right on your dash to keep the mosquitoes away no last night was a perfect night too the weather was great kayla i know you want to go that's why i'm asking more questions gene yes yeah it's great it used to be you would pay one fee and they would have a double feature and you get to stay for the double feature but with kova they're only doing the single features right now and so normally they show a more kid family friendly film first and then hopefully the kids fall asleep and then it's like an adult movie afterwards yeah then the good stuff happens when they fall asleep but it's kind of cool how they have it set up it's uh so is it per person is it per car it's per person there so it's eight dollars for an adult four and younger free kids i think are five and so and then they also have a full um like concession stand set up and a full bar and all that so you can get all that stuff too people get there early bring your own beverages no you can't bring you technically the rules say i did not do this coyote coyote coyote ugly what we're talking about a whole different coyote drive and i would never bring in outside food but if you did uh-huh you know there are people driving around constantly monitoring the situat the area and stuff like that situation situation like us sneaking in our mcdonald's last night and so oh um but they uh it's like a big it's round kind of like a normal theater and then you just park your car and every row it kind of bumps up kind of like a speed bump so that way you can have your back end a little higher like a theater seating but like for your car exactly and so people will people pull in and sit in the front staggered stage oh yeah yeah yeah okay and so people will pull them um they'll pull in and you can sit in the you know just in your car are you we backed in and then we may you know just lifted the tailgate stuck all the kids in there people will bring their trucks and sit in the bed or you can bring your lawn chairs we brought the adult sat in the lawn chairs and the kids sat in the car because it was kind of windy all right so we're gonna i had a station wagon wait i thought you had this cruiser like clark griswold yeah yeah i thought you had that was catalina that was mom that was mom's car what a catalina no mom's car was the vista cruiser what the hell is a vista cruiser this is a vista cruiser educate me patrick there's a vista cruiser that was made by gm it's a chevy okay a station wagon oh station wing okay thank you i was like is this a truck is it a car what is it yeah but i've been out i i've been it's a bird i've been out to uh i've been out to a drive-in theater in my uh in my 1973 pontiac catalina there it is there it is folks pontiac catalina diarrhea brown oh that was diarrhea brown oh went from [ __ ] brown to diarrhea brown that's horrible so you could take your little like convertible out there somebody last night have their convertible so well i'm thinking is it better to take the convertible or is it better to take the tundra because the tundra has the bed probably some people were yeah they were putting like blow up mattresses in the back of their trucks because you want to get there they open at six and uh and so if you get there at six you know the movies don't start till 7 15 8 o'clock-ish but you get the best seats um the best seats are always towards the front you wouldn't think so but uh we set third row and it was perfect and um then you can eat and socialize hang out with your friends have all your friends park next week we have three four cars with us so it's a lot of fun all the kids ran around and all that that's awesome also your dog is howling outside yeah well not at the second but oh there she goes again i hear kind of yep i hear i know how my neighbors get one do you mean you can go get her sure and we'll uh we'll elaborate on this whole driving thing because now i'm fascinated it's a lot of fun really you didn't know anything about drawband no i thought they canceled them all bro i was like now's the perfect freaking time to have one tampa's got them all everywhere out there talking about texas the other team we drove we drove by we drove by uh we drove by one in innis all the way i mean going down [ __ ] it's just like two hours away and it's not in the two hours away because you're driving you know what shut the hell up i'm gonna let your damn dog in all right thank you bro kayla the name of it is coyote if you want to look it up since they're just gonna argue uh we can't argue because he's gone thank you lord jesus [Laughter] shut up your chair is empty what what i said you can't argue because you're gone say it and then you showed up well i can still i can still you can still work argue yeah go argue from outside love you bro let that freaking loud ass obnoxious dog in so how did you even hear about this place tell me the story i live in fort worth i'm just kidding um i don't know i just i i live there at one time too oh you know what back when there was the fort worth cats that was their minor league um the forward cast stadium is right next to where um the drive-in theater is at so where is this drive-in theater you said it's in fort worth but that's like so it's off it's off what what did you you want to repeat that let me again remind you how great fort worth is so we have we have the stockyards and then halfway between the stockyards and downtown you have sundance square no that'd be downtown okay sorry that's all downtown i know it's the only thing i know just kidding it is yeah nowadays 47th street what action yeah like all of a sudden she's trying to be the star of the show look at her surprise hold on she went underneath you did she come here she's mad at you because you didn't let her in when she barked the first time what's wrong with you come here all right so yeah show stopper what the hell is going on here he really had no idea that they still had them no i thought they cancelled it i told him it's out there he's asking where it's at do you do you remember the fort worth cats the minor league yeah so it's right next door to them where they're supposed to be out now that doesn't help me at all now the four with cats they they're non-existent now my dad was actually disappointing my dad's like me in charge of so many things he's in charge of their booster club for many years and then since it shut down it's really sad what happened to the stadium it's kind of sad looking but there's a restoration company that's trying to bring it back to life but it's right next door to that and so so there's main street so you drive through the stockyards right and then let's say you're driving towards downtown before you get to downtown you'll pass the theater oh jesus i'm sorry god you scared me man i don't even know what happened i'm like there's i mean there's i mean the billboard size just white planks is all it is it doesn't take much to i don't know how they shoot it but no it's weird because they had one in louisville and then by the time like i was gonna go to it i heard it's gone this one's been around for at least 10 years oh wow yeah this one's been around for a while because i remember the first time i went to it was probably like coyotes has been around for 10 years probably at least no all right let's look all right i don't know i'd say probably about three months four yeah i have about five or six you think yeah because they faced out they faced out and then they started coming back oh oh i've only been twice last night and the time i went before but let's see i was like when was i married i feel like we need to have a big listing the one the out there the one uh the one in ennis has been around forever because i remember that one um but i want to go to one of the courses because then it's going to have better picture quality and better hopefully no they they probably upgraded everything out there to in this one actually you're right i probably should go in the convertible because the sound system in that thing is on point well i will say last night when we were there you have to remember everybody's got their radios tuned so you i i actually was more disappointed in last night than when i was when i went before why is that because i heard a constant echo so it was really hard to hear your system wasn't loud enough girl that's what that means that must have been i didn't have my car on and then melissa they had their truck on and then we heard this coming but i was running after kids the whole time too i saw ray in the lost dragon or ray and the dragon or something the newest kid movie that's out it's really good if you haven't seen it your kids will love it you lost me you know what you ought to see the shining out there at how to drive in oh hell yeah that'd be badass dude we watched the shining downstairs 4k oh it was awesome and dolby atmos surround sound yeah see that's the only thing like i i don't even miss the theaters because i have a better sound system at home than i do in the damn movie theaters and patrick just bumped his sorry you need we need to get you some smaller earphones man you keep don't don't no i'm fine okay but no i mean he hits it again yeah i hit the wire that time um but now i i remember um i remember the one that um like i said that is uh down in ennis and um how many how many screens do they have there and it's you know i think they have four four i think they do how many four or five four okay i think they have four or five i liked it too they had different um they bring out different foods they have one in cranberry i think two i've only been the grand very like twice cranberry and then it's like a texas town that kind of stayed the same for the last 30 40 years they didn't know they've been yeah i was like they've been built in that place i went to granberry live when i was like 14. oh yeah galaxy oh kim said the galaxy opened in 2003 yeah but kim they they used to have one down there they had one down there when um um what's up ken by the way when we when we drove when we would go down the course of canada to go see family they had they had the same drop yeah of course it can say it right of course a canter of course the canner there you go and they had it before i mean they had it before and then they shut down they opened up again i remember in my teens uh that um they used to show porn there too and no seriously yeah they did to the yeah they did right right off of 45 they would show porn and then they shut it you imagine driving by and also oh my gosh what the [ __ ] yeah i would hear i i would hear my mom say pat you're asleep and here i am peeking over you know peeking over the door you know so oh reopened in 2015. so yeah okay yeah coyote coyote and fort worth has been around look can't say you would remember that whatever exactly why i brought it yeah whatever anyway but no seriously that's that that's baseball yeah okay but that's how that's how it was right right because so how many years did they run it like we used to go what like with it x-rated x-rated at x-rated yeah oh that i'd say probably maybe a year two years maybe wow and i mean i i i i just remember so did you did you have to pay extra for that or how did that work i have no idea because i was i was just a kid okay i was just a kid i really was and so how old were you when you saw your first porn at the drive-in driving by to go to corsicaner uh i think it was like wait was that when you were fake sleeping yeah all right i was third was that 13 yeah i was 13 was 1980. so was that when you saw your first porn or was that no that's when i sold it i've already seen it before you already have the first collection the first glimpse magazine he already had his own collection by then he's like ah that's old news by magazine i got no damn magazines never had to have them were they vhs or what were those things before vhs is the little the little disc or something right before vhs's what are you talking about wasn't there something before vhs's film was it on a film yeah it was from film eight millimeter he would crank it back to the parts he liked the yeah it was uh really real yeah real real it was eight millimeter and the reason right not super eight um but the reason i know this is because i had i had a cousin that stayed with me and that he had uh a few of uh the realtor reels talk about the effort going into having to watch that like you gotta set the whole machine up you gotta get it just right like girl i'm gonna tell you something that's a lot of effort before you were around we had this thing it was called dial up i remember dial up things yes sir i actually remember phones no hold on let me let me explain something because you probably had dial up when it was like dsl and when it was like semi-sword decent [Music] yeah yes that [ __ ] annoying sound where you're trying to like hug your computer so your parents don't hear you're walking on at night you're like oh no no no no no no wake up [Laughter] there was nothing so let me just tell this the odd the listening audience um how old you are shut the front door so um before um all this great communication and everything we had when you used to walk into hitting the mic i learned it from watching you bro so you used to walk into an office bruh it was the loudest environment you like needed earplugs because the printers were [Music] and then typewriter and then you had the 56k it's like how can you get any work done look even the dog's concerned because it was so [ __ ] loud inside the work environment my dad had one of those old school printers that had the little like holes on the side yeah oh yeah i remember that and it didn't even print out a whole sentence it was half a sentence then we had to go back again to do the other half i'm like what the you know what my first computer was what's that commodore 64. man commodore 64. bro that was what's up and then i had and then i had an amiga amiga amiga would you get that in south america no i don't know what and all i had storage all it had was like oh bro don't tell me floppy disk 1.44 megabyte yeah um i had the three girl we're blowing out right now no i remember when they came with colored floppy disks that was the thing to have oh yeah because they only have like the black ones and the white ones and when you could get colors my teacher used to charge us extra for the colors hey uh listening audience kayla said aol aos well that's how you know how old somebody is uh if my cousins are listening when you had an aol account and you still used it you're old as [ __ ] because my parents still use this see my parents still both have theirs what and they pay for it oh i have no idea

he got mad he got mad at me one time he said damn it sprout and it's stuck that's it that's it it's as bad as my kid's nickname from his dad what it's beans why does he have the he says because beans grow really quick and i was like that makes no sense well i thought it was obviously farther a lot bigger magical fruit the more you eat more you too i don't know why he calls them beans all the time

was like so cool so my my wife just died of like this no it's dysentery rattlesnake bites whatever god i can't believe i remember that that was a good game it was a good game because nowadays don't

say that wasn't atari huh atari no that was nintendo i mean not nintendo that was uh the commodore that was the pc oh that was before gaming systems even existed i had an atari did you yeah i had defender joust and all that but my very first one yeah the very first one what was that what was your first one it was pong dude i still have the original the big freaking console that you my grandparents have the original oh those things are worth money yeah with the little oh [ __ ] sorry don't get so excited it was a dial that was your gaylord walker sergey [Laughter] that's his new

somewhere my parents would have that uh pong system uh hidden away i don't know break out for emergency when the when the price goes to a million dollars for the prince like my first pong system yeah my parents and their beanie babies one of these days are not going to be worse i've already had this discussion with too many people they're never going to be worth anything ever what they made too many of them i made too many of them they were mass-produced all right listen audience if you have beanie babies burn them the little kids like them that's what's good about them my son recently thank you mcdonald's not for getting my son into pokemon cards right now he's the thing again yes it's come back it's a big thing people are starting to play pokemon go again all right i'll never understand that that wasn't my nothing against anyone who plays pokemon okay like the pokemon i don't get it i get it you're trying to get the kids out and about like that was great it was an interactive experience kind of like this show which is what makes it magical is it's an interactive experience when you talk a bunch of shenanigans on the uh comments we mention them we pull them up and then we talk about them so that's kind of cool about you know pokemon go is that they have these it's like uh vr uh virtual reality um where it puts the certain creatures or whatever in locations that you got to obtain them to you know to gain whatever that's that's my miniscule knowledge but i just know it was like it was a good attempt to get people out of the house and especially covet and everything else it's like i can't pronounce the dang things names half the time right you know what i think i think what do you think i think uh probably in about i don't know 60 days or so that uh we're going to be shut down again oh yeah so yes going back to that go back to the original conversation well sorry i mean we bring everything full circle we talk about this this this i just circled back yeah we circle back it's okay i'm about to go to the casino oh i'm going to catch you this week too wait well i got invited tonight but i told him i couldn't blow you off it'd be me wearing a casino this

teacher broke single teacher this is the third stimulus thing stimulus i'm going to call it stimulus because you know what it's things that i know they're already talking about a fourth one well i didn't get one two or three so i did that's what i bought my pool with your what i have one of those coleman 22 foot around big okay i was like you know how much a pool costs to build an in-ground pool and that's that's what i thought i was gonna say i was like wait you know how much i didn't ground pool cost no my house was worth a hefty penny right now though i need to sell while the market's good i just can't afford to buy a new one i know that's the problem it's a seller's market actually no yes yeah seller's market yeah my house is worth double what i paid for so let me ask you would you buy it at 125. oh and what's it worth right now 245 250 and that's if i get asking price but everyone around me is getting over it's over yeah the guy next door to me listed it for 260 and he just got 275. yeah no i i'm like i would me and my other neighbor looked over and we go i just would never pay 275 for that i just talked to one of my uh real estate agent friends and he was telling me like he's got offers on houses that haven't even like they haven't even hit the market yet and he's like they're already 20 000 over what they were gonna list it at and it hasn't even hit the market i'm just like going i've looked at selling because it's going to start flopping i've heard rumors it might start going the other way like in a year or so so i've thought about selling it now throwing that all into a savings account or investment and then wait in a year and then buying again well i don't know if the audience listening audience knows this or not but uh zillow now whatever the estimates the z estimate they put on there you can actually sell your house at that the estimate so i told my parents this and they're like well ours the estimates like almost 700 thousand i was like well then obviously you need to sell it because get out while you can so yeah so anyways yeah just a little information i agree sell it sell sell sell i concur i'm about to sell this house too i concur and i'm just like i'm done with house i've owned this thing for 16 years i'm over it it's time to just go buy your island man dude devon island and just have a cruise ship stop by yeah and just

miss you that's true all right so going back to what we were trying to originally go back to which we still haven't gotten back to is the mask thing and what were we talking about oh yeah i think it's shutting down the uh shut down yeah i think so i think we're gonna do that italy's done it uh uh spain is close to doing it again we're in big trouble with them lifting the mask mandate right at spring break i think that's not good at all terrible timing i mean i don't know what the thought behind that is but i don't think it's that we're gonna see a lot of kids gone the week after spring break i think it's the week after that we're gonna run into problems kids getting quarantined again because it's just gone down i can honestly say i haven't gotten an email in at least a week or two of one of my students getting quarantined which is great so people are taking care of things everything's fine but now that this has happened you know how many people are just choosing not to wear a mask or whatever your reason is behind wearing it or not wearing it you know well how many of those people have got their vaccination that's another thing too yeah i mean you got to figure out okay okay well maybe you're not getting as many quarantine calls or whatever because that got there the students aren't getting vaccinated though no yeah you gotta remember they're not vaccinating kids right now they're vaccinating you don't know that oh hell i got a doctor's appointment tomorrow what that's what y'all just reminded me of that thanks well i'm glad this show can help out you i'm sorry i didn't because i didn't mean to interrupt no you're good because i mean we'll just derail this train again well whatever because my dog i think my doctor is going to talk to me about tate is taking the um taking a vaccination or the the vaccine i don't want it you don't want it i don't want it i see everyone's got their their opinion i mean i'm i can't get it the thing is that i mean i would take i had a conversation with someone recently and um i mean i would take the uh i would take the um johnson johnson or the foster i don't want to take the moderna you know and everything i haven't i have underlying issues too and everything and my immune my immune system has been compromised also but i also believe that i have the antibodies because of what happened to me last year when i left dallas on an airplane to go back to freaking florida um freaking florida yeah and um and and all that i believe that i have it but you know i'm just gonna take i'm probably what i'm gonna do is probably take the advice of my doctor you know since i have cardiac issues and like i said i don't want i i don't want the modern i've heard too much about it and everything and i would take the j j or foster i hate to interrupt you but uh kimberly said 17.6 percent of texans have been vaccinated as of today and that's where i find the huge problem it's like you can't open up the damn state when only 17 percent i i wouldn't even open it up at 30 percent squirrel circling back we keep trying to talk about the mask and the vaccines and you keep deviating how many of that 17 are educators and that's the thing is when did they actually start mandating the educators could so we were we were supposed to according to cdc or whatever it is because i'm not following it so my fax may totally be off so correct me if i'm wrong it's okay we have the audience okay check four is that yeah we'll get kayla or kim to check yeah we have audiences teachers were supposed to be a part of like the first round of vaccinations and then governor abbott's the one who put a stop to teachers being a part of that so why or i mean what did he do like how did he put a stop to it what did he just i mean he just said even though it was like a cdc recommendation that teachers would not be a part of that and then now you know teachers back less backtrack you said cdc would cdc's recommendation was that teachers would be a part of the first round yes would be but abbott abbott said no okay you misspoke that's why oh sorry thank you no no you're good i just want to make sure to clarify for the audience and then um i think what happened is when he started opening things educators started getting super pissed and saying something and all of a sudden he's like oh yeah let's get them vaccinated and so like it's an afterthought exactly and so i mean that's what ticks off but of course we're in at will state and so teachers can't protest teachers can't you know i mean we could all call in sick the same day but you're talking about like a right-to-work state or okay yeah i mean we can't i'm like sorry i'm getting tired i know i'm out of drink i'm just like trying to correct you i'm trying to drink i'll go down and get your ginger that would be really nice really no not really oh okay so she says uh kim says let's just cooperate with educators i'll get you one oh thank you see i mean i'm nice thank you for that uh plan what is less than two percent less than two percent so that's what i'm saying while you're not ready you can't freaking open the state when you're not ready it's like and see we're trapped in a room you know with 20 to 30 kids so one of my clients is a company called stringer um and i interviewed uh business owners and also restaurant owners um that had to deal with the covid and how they handled it because i don't know if you know this or not a thousand restaurants per month closed down because of the covet restrictions and the the fifty percent uh mandated and the seventy-five percent and you know and all this stuff that's going on so i interviewed a few of the um restaurants and stuff that are still open and still remained and it's like think of how many people they interact with in their environment you know what i'm saying it's like you're touching you know in your case you're touching you know 100 not touching literally but you're around 100 plus people a day or whatever right so think about the restaurant business think about how many people they interact with and how many people are around them every single day and it's like to me it makes sense who has the most potential propensity to be exposed and that's where they need to delegate and here we have two percent of educators i mean come on it's ridiculous it really i mean and i've actually i mean i've seen it on the news where there's some school districts who are saying if you have if you're like to teachers if you choose to travel during spring break then you're choosing to quarantine yourself after spring break and it will be taken out of your personal days that's not right why are we doing that to teachers so because technically they can't tell me what i can and can not do with my off time but yet you can tell me that i'm not allowed to come to work hold on that's a slippery slope so they can't tell you what to do but when you are on the clock they can tell you what to do yeah because you're on their time that's that's the problem but see why is it that teachers you know it's the same problem we had over the holidays is you know they were saying you know be cautious i'm not saying my district said this you know but i'm hearing you know they're saying be cautious don't go around family don't go do this why are teachers once again being told isolate yourself don't socialize but yet we care about your social emotional health but yet don't do anything but yet if you do then you can't come to work and then you have to use your personal dates but then again as a single parent i only get 10 days a year and i have to divide that between me and my son and my son even got quarantined this year thankfully i haven't gotten quarantined yet but he got quarantined my first thought was i have to use every one of my days to stay home with him right now and so what do i do then if i get sick or there's something else or he gets quarantined again i'm stuck i have no days and so i mean do i risk sending them to the grandparents house and risk exposing them it's a tough situation to be in as a single parent yeah especially since your you know parents are obviously elderly not elderly elderly as in like yeah sorry mom dad if you're yeah yeah my dad my doctor guys remember i shot their wedding or something right didn't i you were at the wedding you're probably at the family table my dad loves you oh i don't know why i don't either that was a great wedding it was even though the marriage sucked the wedding was amazing [Laughter] i would so get married there again if you need a place to go classic oaks they're amazing yeah i was going to say it was like out in the middle of nowhere but it was in mansfield it was gorgeous oh my god i don't even remember like i remember just driving and driving and driving and like once we showed up it was like this awesome venue and everything but i was like yeah you drove up this long pathway past llamas and and uh and all sorts of stuff and then it was just out in the middle and then it was a giant barn wedding and the and the owners there oh my gosh i'm sure they make a killing but the owners there they're just amazing they're hands on with every wedding and everything i would it was worth every paying way too many pennies but it was worth everything a lot of pretty pennies it was a lot of pre-pettiness yep but yeah i mean you're gonna tell your educators they can't travel what are we doing about all these kids because i guarantee you kids are going out they're not going to sit at home so we can only do what we can do right yep yeah i mean if i was a kid i wouldn't want to just sit at home 60 days my friends 60 days 16 60 days yeah 45 to 60 days so going back to circling back to what patrick was mentioning earlier so yeah 35 to 60 days so i i'm i'm an agreeing i'm saying 60 to 120 days we're going to be back under lockdown or yeah i mean because what do we got we got spring break what's the next holiday july 4th july easter yeah those are all close contact family mother's day mother's day father's day [ __ ] this graduation rude yeah graduation oh yeah we're wrong we're all screwed yeah but they're having problems this year so that's nice for the seniors they're hosting them outside but they're having problems wow and it's gonna rain i'll be in a tent it'll be okay it'll still rain it'll destroy the tent yeah i'm actually too i'm actually a little scared that we won't go back on monday next week because why because last year they shut everything down it was like the extended spring break and i'm just like please let me just go back please let me just go back are you gonna think that they are gonna extend that spring break again i mean you never know i was looking forward to going back i mean i miss my kids yeah and so you know but man if they make that call and i can't go back i don't know what i'm going to do oh yeah st patrick's day we completely forgot about that one no one's in like oh yeah that's my day that's your day you forgot all about it oh yeah that's the day to go to windstar iris windstar irish irish irish are there rules up there now are their rules changed at all so they don't have poker they don't have bingo they don't have a couple other things they do every other person that's at the blackjack table um they also do um texas hold them and all that stuff it's every other person and then the machines honestly spready day say sprouty day yeah uh the machines honestly it's like a free-for-all like literally they tried to pull i guess every other chair but like you just grab a chair and do whatever you want sit next to somebody and in all honesty i've maybe touched you know a couple hundred machines i maybe see two three machines get wiped down i mean as long as you're washing your hands i mean that's it yeah just not touching your face and all that still wearing a mask yeah i mean i mean are people still smoking i mean how does that work with them oh god oh yeah they're all smoking how do you even do that with the mat are they just like they pull it okay so the rule is you're allowed to take your mask off if you're smoking and drinking two things oh good so that's like 100 of the time when you're at winstar one of those two things ask this guy i mean i've been there since before the pandemic so actually you know it's kind of nice because and they're supposed to not have full capacity so it's kind of nice because it's not as crowded but then when you're sitting at the table it's it's nice because you're not yeah you're not you're not bumping elbows with yeah that's nice are people breathing down your neck no yes and it's or behind you directly it's like it's a no oh god which yeah he hates that i hate that i hate especially if like you're on a machine you're doing good and all of a sudden you have this crowd around you and they're just like foaming at the mouth and you're just like yeah and i i can't stand i can't stand well go with me nobody will ever be standing around my sleeves they'll be like uh we're not playing on that machine i'm one i'm that person who gets really excited when i win 20 pennies i'm like yeah y'all check that out well the problem is is these penny machines end up costing you 15 20 just for you know a few plays but i can sit we'll see a few plays for you i can sit there all night with that yeah she's like minimum bit that's right maximum bit that's right i'm there for the fun not for the money yeah well look at it just try try just play the play uh play the max bet okay with your money i can do that i mean devin goes ain't talking about winning all this money i'm like alone loan your sister over here some money let's go um i mean just so you know you have not seen mine hold on nor patrick's win loss statement he's laughing because him and i know what it is that's cause you only post your win online yeah [Music] you should see our loss or my loss yeah actually his loss is less than mine but his bet is way higher my bet is way higher so in other words if i went to windstar with the both of you i would always come out on top yeah because i would always pr i'd walk in like i would probably be able to show you the machine that would that would hit anything and the thing is is even if you lose if you do it right you still win if i win five dollars i feel like it's a great day you sound like kayla now oh oh my god me and caleb try try to win 67 000. that's more than i kayla says i win ten dollars in the whole thing i did that i did that in december what'd she say she says i win ten dollars in the whole casino knows that's right me too me and kayla need to play the play the slots next to each other kimberly are you still here that's funny yeah yeah i get all excited and everybody stares at me like i'm winning millions right well that's exactly what happens when kayla wins too everybody thinks she like broke the damn casino yeah i'm always i'm always with a friend i'm like oh my god you see that wasn't that awesome so i did find out i was actually talking to a guy who won over four hundred and thirty thousand dollars at uh winstar um he told me that anytime you win so when it shows at the very top that jackpot uh-huh did you know the casino doesn't pay you of course they don't most people don't know that i didn't know that why is that i knew that the manufacturer of the machine has to basically prove that you want it without cheating and then once they prove it they're the ones that pay you i feel like not the casino i'd be the easiest person to prove it on i'm so blonde they'd be like oh yeah there's no way she wanted me yeah like she's cheated yeah okay prove it prove it that that i cheated you know that's that's kind of the thing yeah so what were you gonna say patrick nothing oh i thought you're gonna add to that about uh the casinos and about how the actual manufacturer of the game has oh i knew that i knew that when star doesn't they don't pay is there a certain percentage yeah no they they don't pay over a certain amount so what do they do after that amount they go through the manufacture of the machine yeah okay they give you the free hotel rooms the free buffet yeah we got the buffet even on right is it even yeah they're using it
