  • Do you understand now why that comment was racist?

  • I do. And thank you so much for helping me understand it. I really appreciate it.

  • Of course.

  • Okay. You can come in now. We're done.

  • All right. That was an hour.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, wonderful.

  • Here you go.

  • Wha... What is this?

  • That's a bill.

  • Please pay with a net 30. Otherwise, you will incur late fees.

  • A bill for what?

  • For miss Macedos emotional labor.

  • Her hourly rate is $75. Plus, she accepts tips now, lucky you.

  • So you're charging me for a talk?

  • Hi, are you tired of your friends using you as a personal stress ball?

  • Or having to explain the inner workings of the patriarchy to your male compadres?

  • Don't worry, we've got your back.

  • Here at Emotional Labor, we charge for your time and energy so you don't have to do that bullsh*t for free anymore.

  • For time unclaimed, I get paid.

  • Is she okay?

  • And I was like, I can't believe you would call me that. Like an energy vampire? What?

  • And so I called him 47 times and he wouldn't pick up, so I thought, Oh my God.

  • So I thought, okay, this is weird, like, why would he be ignoring me, you know?

  • Do people emotionally dump on you?

  • Don't worry. We charge for that.

  • What is this?

  • Rad! Yeah!

  • Hey, did you read the article I sent you about male entitlement and invisible work of women?

  • Uh, can you just tell me what it said?

  • Do people ask you to explain racism, misogyny, ableism or any other topic they could easily educate themselves on with a few clickity-clacks?

  • Don't worry. We charge for that.

  • Bro.

  • Just tell me to put it away.

  • I shouldn't have to tell you to put it away. You live here too.

  • Are you tired of being the manager of the house?

  • Having to delegate tasks and micromanage housework?

  • When you're both partners who can have equal initiative, don't worry. We charge for that.

  • We here at Emotional Labor track your unpaid work and bill on your behalf.

  • Now, I know what you're thinking.

  • Do I have to be a woman to join?

  • According to a University of Michigan study, having a husband creates an extra seven hours of housework each week for women.

  • While, men actually save an hour on chores.

  • The United Nations found that women do 2.6 times the amount of unpaid work that men do.

  • But we here at Emotional Labor know that emotional labor is not exclusive to women.

  • People of color and marginalized communities often find themselves educating their friends and loved ones for free.

  • So the answer is as long as you're working and you're not getting paid, we'll take you on as a client! That'll be $75.

  • Wait, why am I getting charged, again?

  • Because even discussing the imbalance of emotional labor is emotional labor.

  • That'll be $75.

  • What? This is ridiculous, I'm not paying this.

  • Oh, no?

  • No.

  • Why don't you say hi to my little friend, Ryan, over there.

  • Here at Emotional Labor we employ muscular and intimidating members of the male gender to enforce our policies, because why not weaponize the very system you're working to dismantle?

  • That'd be $75.

  • Do you take Amex?

  • No.

  • Emotional Labor.

  • Charging for the bullsh*t you do.

  • So you don't have to.
