My coworker who’s older like mid 50 something did a client presentation shirtless thinking his camera was off the entire time and no one told him anything until the end of the call.

Oh dear! A couple weeks ago I was helping my step dad at the doctor’s office translating all forms for him. I had to join an all staff meeting and thought it was cool, I can finish this while everyone gets started and all. Did you know that if you swipe right from safe drive mode your camera and mic automatically turns on?? I bet they saw my scalp as I was speaking in a foreign language. For the whole company! And it’s not like I quickly figured it out. Oh no. There was a lot of swiping back and forth trying to see where the fuck the mic and camera button were. Also I just started this job a few weeks ago so yeah, it was mortifying.

We had a client do that (though in a towel)

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
