Emotional Labor



It’s cute how people end their emails with this word. Best. I would like people to start signing off with this word, in all capital letters. BEST. Then, perhaps, this word could be an acronym for something. Like Bye Ending Super Thanks. Or maybe Big Energy Sent Today. Or how about: But Everyone Says This. I just think it’s a little weird, as is, using the word “Best.” Best what? Best you? Best email? It’s better as an acronym. It’s BEST as an acronym.
