Zoom Call Disasters – Chapter I

Hmmm… Today, let’s talk about some disasters that happened during a Zoom call.

I have a few. Mmm… Quite a few.πŸ˜ƒ

Well, I’m among those people who keep both – the mic and camera off. Reasons many!

I’m super expressive. My face is a mirror to my heart, my mind, my soul. I can’t fake it out. I don’t like unnecessary talks. Tell me what you got to say and finish it off. I don’t wanna know what you ate for breakfast and when you took a dump.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

But that doesn’t happen. People endup talking unimportant things and I lose my mind. So better off the visuals.πŸ˜†

Honestly, the work discussions are also unnecessary but hey, I get paid to listen to that BS. Isn’t it?πŸ˜‚

Okay, on a serious note – I don’t sit but lie down due to my backache issues and so no video.πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ

But have you ever accidentally unmuted it and forgot about it?πŸ˜’

I have!πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I even today thank the Lord for saving me from saying something which I shouldn’t have.πŸ˜‚ I got a tiny heartattack when I realised it wasn’t on mute.😁

If I would’ve, something like this would’ve definitely happened.πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ˜‚

My family has strict instructions not to enter my room while at work after this incident. If they do, they’re not allowed to talk.😁 Coz, if they talk, I’ll endup speaking and I will definitely start talking something I shouldn’t.

So if they happen to enter my room, we both play Dumb CharadesΒ πŸ˜‚ and we have to guess what we’re trying to convey to each other until I give-up and end-up speaking… obviously after checking if I’m on mute.πŸ˜…

Here’s, one of my experiences… Oh sorry, disasters on a Zoom Call.

I’ll share a few more in the coming days (if time permits).

Tell me your disastrous experience on muting-unmuting on a Zoom call in the comments section.

        1. Adjusting is when you have to tolerate them for 9 hours or more.πŸ˜‚ Trust me, Zoom calls are better coz max 40 mins tolerance and then it drops on it own. Zoom be like, “Hey, I know you won’t be able to tolerate each other more than 40 mins. So go take a break and then decide if you wanna rejoin for a 2nd session of tolerating the person.”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
