A young woman clocks out by the front door. Clutching her purse, she talks with another woman who opened the door. The second young womans asks if she missed anything while she was on vacation. The young woman fills her in on the artist who was commissioned to paint Quavo. She uses air quotes around the word artist. The second woman clocks in and says the artist ordered her around the other day. The young woman asked if Quavo said anything. The second woman nodded and said she didn’t have to listen. The young woman wishes she could be assigned to Quavo.

A third woman clocks out and says she finally put in her notice. She said Machine Gun Kelly refuses to do the simplest things on his own. It’s as though he’s a helpless child and she was hired to be a replacement mother for him. The first young woman says no one has stayed with Machine Gun Kelly for even six months. The unicorn butler walks around and they say goodbye to one another. The unicorn butler had gotten several women fired.

The young woman scurried out the door once she saw the unicorn butler. He monitored the women’s conversations and relayed them back to Machine Gun Kelly. As far as she knew, Quavo and Ty Dolla $ign didn’t really care. However, Machine Gun Kelly often belittled the women based on what the unicorn butler said. The women, though, worked as a team and discussed what was going on at all times. The unicorn butler wasn’t there to protect them.
