Work-Life Balance Scale For Working Moms

This Parody Ad For an Actual "Work-Life Balance Scale" Is Utterly Brilliant

Unsure if you should take another month of unpaid maternity leave? Conflicted about leaving work early to make your daughter's soccer game? Then just let the brand-new Work and Family Scale be your guide.

This hilarious parody commercial proves that bathroom scales don't need to just make women feel bad about their weight – this one also measures how much you're neglecting your kids and your career.

Watch the video to see how it works. Warning: the scale is not for women thinking about getting pregnant (it's far too depressing) or for men ("See your kid today? Congrats, you're great dad! You deserve a beer.").

Go ahead, working moms, step right up and just try and have it all.
