How Dean Spent His Winnings From Gambling | GSC. Episode 12

Danny Lehr: "Oh shit, rib cook off today, I better go to the store." Runs a Save Mart, buys a rack of ribs, comes home with three different kinds of sauces and then she just cooked the ribs in the oven, mixed three or four sauces together for her own little concoction of sauces; first time she's ever done it, like, "Oh a little bit of this, oh probably some of this would be good in there." Mixed them up, slapped it on ...

Dean Saddoris: And now she's gonna be screwed for next year because she doesn't remember the combo.

Danny Lehr: Dude, gold medal. What's that?

Dean Saddoris: Did you tear up a little bit?

Danny Lehr: Did I?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. Of joy. 

Danny Lehr: No I was too busy, fired up. I was too busy yelling at everybody else.

Dean Saddoris: Just laughing.

Danny Lehr: Just laughing.

Dean Saddoris: I bet you feel stupid, Jason. You dumb fucker.

Danny Lehr: Hey how's that $3000 Traeger working? You son of a bitch.

Dean Saddoris: Too bad it didn't cook the ribs for you.

Danny Lehr: Not a word.

Dean Saddoris: Nope. So if you guys are wondering what the weird sound is ... oh wait first off, welcome to episode 12.

Danny Lehr: Welcome to Episode 12 of ...

Dean Saddoris: Gas Station Capp ...

Danny Lehr: The Gas Station Cappuccino by Caffeine and Kilos.

Dean Saddoris: G.S.C.

Danny Lehr: I'm Danny Lehr, next to me as always, Dean Saddoris.

Dean Saddoris: Yes we are. Here we are ...

Danny Lehr: Episode 12

Dean Saddoris: Numero siete ocho

Danny Lehr: No. Diez y dos. 

Dean Saddoris: That was a joke.

Danny Lehr: So, how's it going?

Dean Saddoris: It's going good.

Danny Lehr: If there's a little noise in the background, if you hear something that sounds kinda like this ... that is actually a ... what do you ever call that thing?

Dean Saddoris: Guillermo? 

Danny Lehr: Gourmia.

Dean Saddoris: Gourmia.

Danny Lehr: Anyway it's supposed to be a cold brew maker but instead of just sitting it for 12-24 hours it's supposed to make cold brew in 10-40 minutes depending on ...

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.  How strong you want it. So obviously we're gonna go all out we did the 40 minute setting, which is still a lot significantly shorter 12 hours.

Danny Lehr: Yeah. Full tilt. 

Dean Saddoris: So we'll see how it tastes.

Danny Lehr: So that's where actually we started it and then we realized that 40 minutes is a long time. We were filming an episode of, 'This is How we Brew it.' So if you guys don't know, Dean and I do, 'This is How we Brew it.' This is how we brew it. 

Dean Saddoris: Great show. Great content. I mean, you'll see most of these coffee brewing methods for the first time.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, and so what we do is we basically just ...

Dean Saddoris: We take pride in that.

Danny Lehr: Go over different ways to brew coffee and we're actually constantly seeking new ways to do it and kinda the whole shtick of it is ... you know how in, 'Gas Station Cappuccino,' it's not usually that serious; that's kind of 'How We Brew It' goes. We get these different ways to brew coffee and then we do it for the first or second time. Often times, either Dean or myself will do it one time just by ourself and then we teach other person how to use it.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah and it's more of just to get a base of, "okay, how long does this take?" Say we would have pulled this one out of the box and tried to do it right now, oh this thing takes 40 minutes. We're not going to have a 40 minute Youtube video.

Danny Lehr: And then how good's the coffee.  So anyways, while this thing is doing its thing, let's get a little G.S.C.

Dean Saddoris: Let's get a little G.S.C. in there.

Danny Lehr: So ...

Dean Saddoris: I almost wanna keep saying G.S.P., like George St. Pierre.

Danny Lehr: Well, you know why. We shouldn't say the name of exactly what's going on, but the next episode, which will be episode 13 ... should we skip episode 13, like and elevator does?

Dean Saddoris: No, because ...

Danny Lehr: Go 12 to 14?

Dean Saddoris: No because we were orchestrated in 2013; that's a good number for us.

Danny Lehr: Oh that's true. You know what, I actually heard ...

Dean Saddoris: We're taking a stand on that being a bad number. We're taking it as being the greatest number ever.

Danny Lehr: You know what, somebody, I wish I remember who it was, I was reading this book, and he was an athlete; they're number 13, and someone said, "What do you think about it being bad luck?" He said, "It is; for the other guys. For the other team."

Dean Saddoris: That's a good mindset.

Danny Lehr: Number 13 is ...

Dean Saddoris: What number is Odell Beckham Jr?

Aaron: 13

Dean Saddoris: There it is.

Danny Lehr: Oh shit.

Dean Saddoris: That's what I thought.

Danny Lehr: I don't think it was him that said that, but it may have been. I think it was someone ...

Dean Saddoris: No, he's a bitch.

Danny Lehr: From a different era. Yeah, it's couldn't have been him.

Dean Saddoris: He's a bitch.

Danny Lehr: Do you say that ... is that a fantasy football thing?

Dean Saddoris: No. I'm a Cowboys fan so he's a division rival, but, he's also a bitch.

Danny Lehr: Holy smokes. Based on your personal interactions with him?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: There you go.  So anyway, on episode 13, lucky number 13, as of now it looks like we're gonna have a guest. We don't want to say who it is in case he gets moved around and moved to a different episode or whatever but we are going to have a few guests on here. It's going to be in house. It'll be here in the warehouse. We've got a setup; third mic, third earpiece, headphone; we've got the whole thing going.

Dean Saddoris: And when and if we do have guests, it's always going to be in house. I feel like ...

Danny Lehr: Or in person.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, in person. No call in stuff.

Danny Lehr: No. Not until we change our mind.

Dean Saddoris: And not until we just decide to start doing that.

Danny Lehr: Yep, absolutely. So I mentioned Fantasy Football, Dino; will you wanna tell the people the thing you've been most proud of your entire life?

Dean Saddoris: Well I did win this year, in my league. Big league, $200 buy-in league. 12 man. There was $1200 up for grabs.

Danny Lehr: On the line.

Dean Saddoris: That's a nice little chunk.

Danny Lehr: Nice.

Dean Saddoris: First place gets $800. It was nice but I'm also in charge ... this is our fourth year.

Danny Lehr: What did you do with that $800?

Dean Saddoris: I put ... I spent every single cent of it the same day on wheels for my second truck. Why not? It's like I never had it.

Danny Lehr: Look, anytime you win money gambling, you blow that shit.

Dean Saddoris: It's fake money.

Danny Lehr: That's exactly it ...

Dean Saddoris: It's not real.

Danny Lehr: And so you win the fantasy football money, you blow that shit.

Dean Saddoris: Well see here's the thing, that's the only way to spend gambling money because if you're depending on that money to pay bills, then you're in a way bigger fucking problem. 

Danny Lehr: You've got bigger issues.

Dean Saddoris: Exactly.

Danny Lehr: You know what I mean ...

Dean Saddoris: That money should be lucrative.

Danny Lehr: Lil' Wayne says ...

Dean Saddoris: Is that the right word?

Danny Lehr: You gotta blow that money, you gotta know that.

Dean Saddoris: It ain't gonna ... I'm not taking it my grave.

Danny Lehr: If you're getting money through gambling or some sort of illegal means, you're not putting it in the bank ...

Dean Saddoris: No

Danny Lehr: You know what I mean? You can't ...

Dean Saddoris: What do you do? Stare at it and look at it. Right?

Danny Lehr: You're gonna blow it or you're gonna buy art, or something else, some kind of laundering.

Dean Saddoris: Oh yeah, art's a great laundering thing.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: Any kids listening to this, just know that if you make money through illegal means, you gotta blow that shit. You gotta know that.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. If you learned anything today.

Danny Lehr: If you learned anything

Dean Saddoris: So with that being said ...

Danny Lehr: That's why the drug dealers are buying chains.

Dean Saddoris: We got a little bit ... that's true. That's exactly why.

Danny Lehr: You get the big necklaces all that, because then you still got the asset.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.  It's still there, and it could possibly grow in value unless you got totally ripped off.

Danny Lehr: And it looks great.

Dean Saddoris: And you just look professional.

Danny Lehr: Kinda like your gold tooth [inaudible 00:06:51]

Dean Saddoris: I wish. I won't be able to.

Danny Lehr: No?

Dean Saddoris: I think Kelsey would probably leave me.

Danny Lehr: Wait until you guys are actually married ...

Dean Saddoris: Officially?

Danny Lehr: Yeah, then go for it.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, [inaudible 00:07:01]

Danny Lehr: Cheaper to keep it, she'll have to say.

Dean Saddoris: I'll just show up at home one day with a gold canine and see if she even notices it ...

Danny Lehr: Yes ...

Dean Saddoris: And see if she even notices it. I'll put it on the bottom, just one on the bottom.

Danny Lehr: That's how ...

Dean Saddoris: See if she notices.

Danny Lehr: That's how most of my tattoos go is Jessica finds out ... same time as everybody else when I'm posting about it on social media when I'm in the chair.

Dean Saddoris: Kelsey saw my Star Wars Millennium Falcon Tattoo, she's like, "Oh, that's nice."

Danny Lehr: So she's a huge fan."

Dean Saddoris: She's not not a fan; she's just like, "Ah, whatever."  She'll watch it, but she's not a fan. 

Danny Lehr: So you won fantasy football.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. So we were gonna talk about trophy talk here because you've got a little story to tell but it's our fourth year in this league ...

Danny Lehr: New feature on "Gas Station Cappuccino." Trophy talk.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, trophy talk.  It's a winners only group here.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: You know, so.

Danny Lehr: Obviously.

Dean Saddoris: This is how we roll. I'm in charge this year though, actually it was my idea, but we're finally doing a nice trophy for the league, and instead of using the money I won, I'll just have to use it out of my pocket, because I spent all that.  Whatever, I don't care.

Danny Lehr: Well if you spent it at the trophy shop they could track that.

Dean Saddoris: Maybe I'll just write it off.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah. 

Dean Saddoris: Can I write that off?

Danny Lehr: Yeah

Dean Saddoris: Is fantasy football a job?

Danny Lehr: I don't know. I'm not an accountant. How would I know?

Dean Saddoris: How can I write this off? Maybe it's like some kind of donation. Maybe I'm donating to a charity ... charitable event. Maybe we'll start contributing to charity out of our league money and then I can write it off.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Anyways ... I'm gonna get a nice big trophy this year

Danny Lehr: What are you thinking? Are you thinking like a giant leg lamp?

Dean Saddoris: That'd be cool. I have to go to the trophy shop and see what the options are. If have any ideas let us know because I might not still have done it by the time this airs. 

Danny Lehr: They've got so many options, you have no idea. For my gym we do a Turkey Day throw-down and the entrance fee is a frozen turkey then we donate them all to a local food bank. It's kind of a nice thing. The trophies have this giant turkey on the top. They have turkey trophies ...

Dean Saddoris: See now do I go with something that's related to the league ...

Danny Lehr: No.

Dean Saddoris: Or do I do something that's just totally random? 

Danny Lehr: Yes.

Dean Saddoris: Okay that's what I thought. But I do have to get a solid base, though, where I can add names. 

Danny Lehr: You've gotta have a solid base.

Dean Saddoris: What are the base options? Do they have things where you can get it engraved ...

Danny Lehr: Oh yeah.

Dean Saddoris: There's a medal plate and you just write the name on it every year.

Danny Lehr: Yeah. They can give you that ...

Dean Saddoris: Because I have to write four other names and then mine for the prior three years.

Danny Lehr: Well what you get is ... the base is pretty tall, a big base; maybe eight inches or so and wide so you can put the plaque ... you wouldn't have to take the whole thing in to get engraved necessarily they would just get the little plate and they'd get engraved and then it would take the tread and tack it on.

Dean Saddoris: Okay. How long would that last you think?

Danny Lehr: However many spots there are I dunno.

Dean Saddoris: You think it's enough spots for [inaudible 00:09:50]. How long is this league gonna go on? You never know. 

Danny Lehr: The fact that it's five years is a pretty good accomplishment.

Dean Saddoris: Fourth year. The next year will be the fifth year, which is a pretty long time for one league. 

Danny Lehr: It's pretty good.  I'm thinking you probably want a dozen spots on there.

Dean Saddoris: At least.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Maybe that's not enough.

Danny Lehr: Well they could always maybe go on the back after that. [crosstalk 00:10:14]

Dean Saddoris: Circle it around.

Danny Lehr: Check it out; here's the thing ...

Dean Saddoris: In my mind I'm thinking a circular base.

Danny Lehr: If it goes more than 12 years, you just get a bigger trophy. Then they can just pop all those plates off and pop them ...

Dean Saddoris: Yeah that's a good call. Okay so I'm gonna pick something pretty silly then. For the headpiece ...

Danny Lehr: Giant leg lamp.

Dean Saddoris: I don't think they would have that.

Danny Lehr: Oh they've got that. I think if you google ...

Dean Saddoris: I'm not A Christmas Story movie fan.

Danny Lehr: So then how about this; what about just a big ole areola.

Dean Saddoris: A big nipple?

Danny Lehr: A big nipple.

Dean Saddoris: Would it be obvious that it's a nipple?

Danny Lehr: Yeah, think like a baby bottle. You know what I mean? Like a big ole fake nip. You should have a big nip on top.

Dean Saddoris: That would be funny looking.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: What made me think of this was yesterday I was at the gym and I pulled up behind this car and there was a huge, in white letters, it looked like a decal someone had made for the last place.

Danny Lehr: It said 0.0.

Dean Saddoris: No; those are great too.

Danny Lehr: They're my favorite.

Dean Saddoris: In all white cut-out decals, "I SUCK AT FANTASY FOOTBALL." So I'm guessing that was their [inaudible 00:11:24] last place. That was the last place for that league. That was the punishment.  [crosstalk 00:11:32] drive around that for a year.

Danny Lehr: That's a great last place thing.

Dean Saddoris: It took up the whole center of the back window.

Danny Lehr: You're talking was like 16 inches across.

Dean Saddoris: At least, yeah, for sure.

Danny Lehr: Really.

Dean Saddoris: It was big letters.

Danny Lehr: I was thinking like a little ...

Dean Saddoris: Actually ...

Danny Lehr: You took a photo ...

Dean Saddoris: I'm gonna show you the photo and maybe we Aaron can put it in the camera ...

Danny Lehr: Or maybe I describe it ... text him the picture of it and he'll be able to put it in there. There it is. Okay, so ...

Dean Saddoris: Put that on the screen Aaron ...

Danny Lehr: Or just send him the picture and he can just pop it in, too. Bringing it in? So for those of you guys at home I'm gonna describe it for you a little bit. It's not one sticker, it's the individual letters ...

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, decal. Decal ...

Danny Lehr: It's an, "I" and then an, "S", "U", "C"; they're individual letters. They didn't get a sticker made, they just went down to Walmart and bought the decal letters and then just popped it on the back ...

Dean Saddoris: See that's what I thought at first too but then it's so straight that maybe they could have just got a big decal made and then stuck it on there all at once.

Danny Lehr: It's possible. The point is, this thing's large.

Dean Saddoris: It's big.

Danny Lehr: It's big. It's fantastic.

Dean Saddoris: Great punishment, for anybody that's looking for a new punishment for their league. There you go. 

Danny Lehr: While we're on this segment of trophy talk, new podcast coming out by Caffeine and Kilos, "Trophy Talk."

Dean Saddoris: "Trophy Talk."

Danny Lehr: In the mix. My wife actually has a trophy; really it's a championship belt we are currently in possession of and the belt, talking like wrestling belt, that size; like W.W.E. Championship belt.

Dean Saddoris: Nice

Danny Lehr: And or a U.F.C. uses big belts, it's like that, but I actually need to take care of it because on the side there's a spot to get the name engraved. So on the sides ... there's the big thing in the middle, the big design on the middle, and on the sides of the belt are the little plaques with people's names on them of previous winners, so I need to get that plate in and get her name on it for her because it's been almost a year. I mean, it's not like you can really wear it; I mean, I would, every damn day, but, you know ...

Dean Saddoris: So you carry it around when you're taking out the trash.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: If your neighbors are involved, let them know.

Danny Lehr: Anywhere you're going. 

Dean Saddoris: "Hey Bill. Yep, still got it."

Danny Lehr: "Yeah. It's the belt, it's the belt there."

Dean Saddoris: Okay go fuck yourself.

Danny Lehr: So what she won it for is our friends, the [inaudible 00:13:57] have an annual rib cook off. So they do this rib cook off and they invite people over and you can bring some ribs, right, and you enter them and it's completely legit. It's blind ...

Dean Saddoris: Blind testing.

Danny Lehr: Blind test. You bring them in and they have these plates out and then if you're entering your ribs, you cut like six of them out and you plate them and then your plate is just numbered, and then there's the judges ... last year Jessica actually made the ribs, that's why I judged. So there was four or five of us, we all go outside, we had a judges meeting.

Dean Saddoris: So you knew what her ribs looked like visually before the competition, but continue.

Danny Lehr: No, because check it out; they're all sauced, and once they're cut and put on their sides and stuff ... really it's just ribs. It's just ...

Dean Saddoris: You can fool your neighborhood but you're not fooling me.

Danny Lehr: Okay, anyway. All the judges go outside while they're cutting and plating the ribs and you have scorecards. It's like, for plate number one, plate number two; each one has their own scorecards and you judge on appearance, flavor, and texture, maybe? I don't remember what the other one was exactly but basically there were three or four criteria and you label them one to five and they get their score. She put them in a spreadsheet and it was this whole thing. So, I show up, Jessica won.

Dean Saddoris: Now did you vote for her rib?

Danny Lehr: No ...yes, but it's not like you vote for the one ...

Dean Saddoris: That's true [crosstalk 00:15:32]

Danny Lehr: Yeah; they were the best ones.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. Is it a majority decision?

Danny Lehr: No, it's the total of the scores. So say there's three criteria, the top score would be 15 or whatever. She plugged in every judges score and totaled them up. Whichever one had the highest overall score, that's how they won.

Dean Saddoris: Got it.

Danny Lehr: So really one out of four or five judges, you couldn't fake it or make someone win if you wanted to.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. I was obviously kidding. For all Dan's neighbors that watch this. 

Danny Lehr: It's all good. So, here's the catch though; here's the best part. People were pissed when she won, because check this out; these people, they all have these Traegar grills, they're out there getting up at 2:00 am to baste them out on the fucking smoker. Jessica, she won, on oven ribs. Fucking oven ribs. Let me help you out a little more here ...

Dean Saddoris: Not everybody likes smoked ribs.

Danny Lehr: Three hours in the oven. This is what happened; the things going down at 3:00 or something, it's 11:00 am and Jess's like, "Oh shit, rib cook off today, I better go to the store." Runs to Save Mart, buys a rack of ribs, comes home with three different kinds of sauces and then she just cooked the ribs in the oven, mixed three or four sauces together for her own little concoction of sauces; first time she's ever done it, like, "Oh a little bit of this, oh probably some of this would be good in there." Mixed them up, slapped it on ...

Dean Saddoris: And now she's gonna be screwed for next year because she doesn't remember the combo.

Danny Lehr: Dude; gold medal. So everyone's all like ... and it's all these fireman too, and they just barbecue up some things ...

Dean Saddoris: So they're all just totally demasculized.

Danny Lehr: Oh yeah, by old oven ribs.

Dean Saddoris: What's funny, first off, that's awesome. Second of, who's to say oven ribs aren't better?

Danny Lehr: Well obviously they are.

Dean Saddoris: When you're buying a filet mignon at Morton Steakhouse that they're cooking it on fucking barbecue outside? No. They're cooking it in the oven and they're searing it on a pan. So, obviously, they're using the oven because that tastes better.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, and then ... one of the highlights or two, she took a couple pictures of the belt afterwards and she said, "I ... this is my proudest moment. I think I'm more proud of this than when I graduated from nursing school."

Dean Saddoris: That's great.

Danny Lehr: She was dead serious. It was great.

Dean Saddoris: That's awesome. Did you tear up a little bit? 

Danny Lehr: No I was too busy, fired up. I was too busy yelling at everybody else.

Dean Saddoris: Just laughing.

Danny Lehr: Just laughing.

Dean Saddoris: I bet you feel stupid Jason, you dumb fucker.

Danny Lehr: Hey how's that $3000 Traeger working? You son of a bitch.

Dean Saddoris: Too bad it didn't cook the ribs for you.

Danny Lehr: Exactly. There it is. Oven ribs, the key to success.

Dean Saddoris: That's awesome. Good for her. Was it all men, against her?

Danny Lehr: She may have been the only ...

Dean Saddoris: Not that that matters but I'm just curious.

Danny Lehr: She may have been the only female intern.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah ... 

Danny Lehr: But I'm not sure.

Dean Saddoris: Taking one for the team.

Danny Lehr: Just a little side-note, the year prior I made the ribs and we did not win.

Dean Saddoris: Dead last.

Danny Lehr: Third. Third from last.

Dean Saddoris: Out of five.

Danny Lehr: There is five.  That'd be second overall. 

Dean Saddoris: You're dead-nuts in the middle.

Danny Lehr: No there's like a dozen entries and I think I was number nine. I went outside the box; I tried to do an asian ...

Dean Saddoris: Like almost like a ...

Danny Lehr: An asian zing, type thing. Which is pretty specific ...

Dean Saddoris: What, like ginger ...

Danny Lehr: It's a bold move.

Dean Saddoris: You know what it was? It was a gusto move.

Danny Lehr: You know what everybody said? "Bold move, man, not bad. Not really that good either."

Dean Saddoris: Was that what us we were talking about when you can say, "bold."

Danny Lehr: That's a bold move.

Dean Saddoris: Who was that? Oh shit, it was so funny. We just kept going. It's like saying ... when you say something's a bold move ...

Danny Lehr: It's did not work out well for you but like, "Good job."

Dean Saddoris: It's a very passive-aggressive word. "That was bold." Instead of saying, "You are a fucking idiot, that was stupid," [inaudible 00:19:36] "Oh you know what, that was a pretty bold move." Instead of saying, "that was completely asinine and you're out of your mind," instead of saying that you can just be like, "Oh yeah, he went for it; it was bold."

Danny Lehr: You go for something big and fall short ... bold move.

Dean Saddoris: Exactly. You can just totally cut someone down without being mean.

Danny Lehr: It's great.

Dean Saddoris: "And yeah he put it on the bar, that was bold."

Danny Lehr: "Yeah, bold move there."  One of my favorite ...

Dean Saddoris: Like when I attempted 160 at [inaudible 00:20:01] the other day. It was bold.

Danny Lehr: Bold move man.

Dean Saddoris: It wasn't close. It was bold.

Danny Lehr: It didn't even get off [inaudible 00:20:07]. We got a comment on a Youtube video ...

Dean Saddoris: Let's hear it.

Danny Lehr: From Gas Station Cappuccino episode seven. John Pang said, "So when's the host of, 'This is How we Brew it,' gonna join with this Gas Station crew?"

Dean Saddoris: Well we're the same.

Danny Lehr: Yeah I think John's joking.

Dean Saddoris: Well maybe he's not.

Danny Lehr: Maybe he's not. It's unclear.

Dean Saddoris: I'm not being rude here but maybe he's blind and he prefers to listen to audio via youtube.

Danny Lehr: Oh you went with blind?

Dean Saddoris: You gotta think of all possible scenarios here.

Danny Lehr: Or, what if he's deaf.

Dean Saddoris: Maybe.

Danny Lehr: [inaudible 00:20:57]

Dean Saddoris: And he only watches the video.

Danny Lehr: That's right. How would he know by looking at us that we're the same guys?

Dean Saddoris: That's true.

Danny Lehr: Or maybe he was just being clever because he enjoys the content.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah that's probably it. That's the safe zone.

Danny Lehr: Dean, do you text and drive?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah; I do. I do. Too often.

Danny Lehr: How do you feel about that?

Dean Saddoris: Honestly; normally I don't text and drive but I will voice-text and drive.

Danny Lehr: When you're voice-texting are you holding your phone in your hand?

Dean Saddoris: I am but I'm not looking down at it.

Danny Lehr: Yeah. Eyes on the road.

Dean Saddoris: But I already drive with one hand, regardless though. I'm a one-hand driver, so when I am voice-texting, I'm still one-hand driving and I'm looking at the road. Which I feel like if you're going to do it at all, that's probably better, but nothing's better than not doing it.

Danny Lehr: You just talk at your phone.

Dean Saddoris: Correct.

Danny Lehr: You just press the little record button and then you just talk.

Dean Saddoris: But I talk kinda slower just to make sure it picks it up so I don't have to redo it or erase anything, which will required me to look down at the phone.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: I don't do the actual voice ...

Danny Lehr: You don't send voice memos?

Dean Saddoris: No; I actually do the typing out text words. It's probably better to do the voice memos because then there's not spelling errors because it's just your voice. It's not typing out your words but ...

Danny Lehr: I also occasionally text and drive but it's something I'm not proud of and it's something I wish I didn't do but ...

Dean Saddoris: Everybody's always like, "Oh, it can wait."  Well yeah, it can, but I can also forget and then it'll never gets done.

Danny Lehr: Yeah

Dean Saddoris: I can wait myself into completely forgetting about it.

Danny Lehr: But then the flip-side is ... completely forgetting about it or getting in an accident.

Dean Saddoris: Here's the thing; by the time I get out of the gym at night it's usually about time to put something up on the C.K. page. So what I will do, is if I don't do it in my car before I leave, I do it either in the gym or I do it ... I'll pull over down the street because midtown there is way too much foot traffic.

Danny Lehr: Yeah

Dean Saddoris: I'm not trying to hit fucking someone walking across the street because that shit's ... every time you turn your car or look down the street, someone's crossing it. I don't mess with that, at night, down there.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: Daytime, I might do it.

Danny Lehr: Daytime, you're driving on the freeway.  Daytime, on the freeway, light to moderate traffic; you're typing on your phone.

Dean Saddoris: Probably.

Danny Lehr: You know what, here's there, I wish ...

Dean Saddoris: While watching a nice movie. No, I'm just kidding. I swear to God, I'm sure everybody has ...

Danny Lehr: Just driving down the freeway on Brazzers.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, Brazzers. No, people reading books, while driving.

Danny Lehr: "Great actress."

Dean Saddoris: I've seen people driving their cars ...

Danny Lehr: Reading a book.

Dean Saddoris: With a book ...

Danny Lehr: I've seen that. Book on the steering wheel.

Dean Saddoris: On the steering wheel, driving. What are you doing, reading a sentence at a time? What are you going?

Danny Lehr: You know what I'm thinking when I see someone with an open book ...

Dean Saddoris: Get a fucking audiobook. 

Danny Lehr: Well you know what I'm thinking when I see you with a book? This is 2018, get a Kindle. That shit is embarrassing, turning those paper pages right here in front of God and everybody.

Dean Saddoris: No way man, I love a good paperback book, or hardback. I'm not into the electronic books; I hate it. 

Danny Lehr: I don't mind the paper books, but when you're traveling, what if you're towards the end of your book? You have to bring that one and another one that's not even open and now you're carrying two books around?

Dean Saddoris: I can understand that. One aspect of it, but, you probably might wanna start a new one when you travel. Might as well run two at the same time. Two books; just bring the one that's new and then when you get back into town you can finish the other one.

Danny Lehr: I'm usually running two or three at the same time anyway.

Dean Saddoris: Right now I'm doing two but one is kinda been on standby for a while, but I did read some of it the other day. I'm doing two right now.

Danny Lehr: Ghost books.

Dean Saddoris: Ghost books.

Danny Lehr: So do you just decided whatever you're in the mood for the one you open up?

Dean Saddoris: No. The one's kinda there for when I didn't have my other book, the second part, it's a three-part book. I finished the first one; I wanted to read so I went back to the one I hadn't finished yet.

Danny Lehr: If you're on a kindle, you finish one, boom, the next one bought there, right in front of you, ready to rock.

Dean Saddoris: I don't know man, I like the page turning. I turning back physical pages ... I'm looking at screens, not saying this is me personally, all day long; on my phone, on the computer, the t.v., at home, at night. Sometimes I just wanna look at some paper.

Danny Lehr: Oh for sure. It is true though that the Kindles, anyway, it's not ...

Dean Saddoris: It's not the same. Kelsey has a Kindle. I've tried it. 

Danny Lehr: They're not all back-lit. It's called Paperwhite.

Dean Saddoris: For sure, but to me it's still a screen.

Danny Lehr: You wanna get some paper in your hands.

Dean Saddoris: I just wanna fucking get away from technology for a second.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: That's kinda more of what my reading has turned into, it's almost more of alike an escape from technology.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: It really has for me at nighttime. I'm trying not to look at my phone in bed anymore at night.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: So that's when I start reading consistently again, but now I'm on fire.

Danny Lehr: See I read ...

Dean Saddoris: I'll have the t.v. on with no sound, just in the background, so I can see ...

Danny Lehr: Well to get a little blue light.

Dean Saddoris: I have a light next to my nightstand [crosstalk 00:26:28] I might wanna glance up, see what's on.

Danny Lehr: Well you want the t.v. on to disturb your sleep patterns. 

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: Try and get that last little bit of blue light in right before bed.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: That's what I'm always tell Jess. She's like, "Are you gonng go to sleep? Why are you still on your phone?" I'm like, "Look, how am I gonna get this blue light into me, you know what I mean, to mess with my sleep patterns if you keep talking like that?"

Dean Saddoris: That's great.

Danny Lehr: That's the way I feel about it ...

Dean Saddoris: So it's kind of a little technology escape.

Danny Lehr: So that's why I text and drive but wish I didn't also. Sometimes I think about making a stand, like I'm just not gonna do it anymore, because if I just decided I'm not gonna do it anymore, I never would. But I just don't wanna make that commitment.

Dean Saddoris: Well then I get stuck in this other pattern of switching podcasts up.

Danny Lehr: Oh, I know. What happens then is you're in the middle of one, all the sudden you don't like it, you wanna go to another one, now you're looking at your phone doing that.

Dean Saddoris: That's probably most of what I'm doing on my phone. If it's the morning time or I'm driving, it's the sports radio, but then after that, it's podcasts only.

Danny Lehr: See I don't want it sound like I'm constantly in the middle of seven conversations, that's not the case, but it's like, "Oh I got a text." I'm probably gonna respond to it. You know what I mean?

Dean Saddoris: I feel I'm more less likely to check my phone if a podcast is running.

Danny Lehr: That's true, absolutely, because you're doing other things. Also, if it's a long, involved response I won't reply, but it's just a couple words ...

Dean Saddoris: "Be Right There."

Danny Lehr: "On The Way."

Dean Saddoris: "No, I said 'tomatoes.'"

Danny Lehr: Exactly. Bold move.

Dean Saddoris: Well, you know, bold move.

Danny Lehr: Exactly. Yeah. There we go.

Well thank you for tuning into this episode of Gas Station Cappuccino.

Dean Saddoris: Did you get that jingle?

Danny Lehr: Oh yeah, I've actually been thinking about that. Have you got one?

Dean Saddoris: I do.

Danny Lehr: Let's hear it.

Dean Saddoris: When you're driving to the gas station and you need a cappuccino, make sure it's a suicide delight.

Danny Lehr: Suicide delight.  Dude.

Dean Saddoris: Have you ever put Slurpee in your gas station cappuccino?

Danny Lehr: Speaking of suicide delight, right after we finish up, 'This is How we Brew it?', head down to AMPM.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah; I don't know if I'll have time today.

Danny Lehr: Too rich.

Dean Saddoris: It's a little rich.

Danny Lehr: Too rich.

Dean Saddoris: You think you're having déjà vu, you're not.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, that's right.

Dean Saddoris: It's turned into a [inaudible 00:29:01]

Danny Lehr: So I'm ready with mine.

Dean Saddoris: Let's hear it.

Danny Lehr: Hold on I gotta make mine up real quick.

Dean Saddoris: You just gotta start talking.

Danny Lehr: You just gotta catch the vibe, [inaudible 00:29:14]. Here we go.

When I'm driving my big-rig and I'm getting tired, pull into the gas station for a cappuccino. 

Dean Saddoris: And a light dessert.

Danny Lehr: When you got that lot lizard climbing back in your truck and you know that it's almost time to drink a gas station cappuccino.

Dean Saddoris: Get a fresh cup. Get a fresh cup.

Danny Lehr: When you've that cup and you're ready to get a gas station cappuccino.

Dean Saddoris: Kick out that log lizard and make a suicide delight.

Danny Lehr: Are there gigolo lot lizards?

Dean Saddoris: For sure. Absolutely.

Danny Lehr: If you're a gigolo lot lizard and you listen to this, hit us up at Alright, episode 12.

Dean Saddoris: Gigolo lot lizard.
