I'm finding the call quality is a lot better now. So at least there's that.

It's actually still Lync but just rebranded as Skype.....

The app is the biggest piece of shit

I thought it was using Skype telephony infrastructure, hence the better call quality.

The app is even worse

Still no Mac Support so I'm stuck with Lync still.

No bullshit. It's horrid and I agree the app is booty.

Has anyone eloped or done a zoom wedding? Any regrets?
I wouldn’t mind a small wedding/reception, but I can’t help but think zoom might feel a little lonely/unreal.

Skype for business we are using in my firm isn't allowing screensharing and it is driving mad!
Do you think it's because it's a cheaper version or just blocked by company? Any alternatives?

A few weeks ago I had a boss make fun of me on a call for looking “gloomy” and he wouldn’t let it go. He kept yelling in a joking way at me to ‘cheer up’ in front of others on a zoom call. I wasn’t being rude, just quieter that day, as I was going through a mental health issue. . It’s been eating at me the way he bullied me on call - should I say something ? I feel a 55 year-old man should’ve learned not to do this by now... don’t know how to come at it without seeming whiny WOC...

So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.

Flying home from a 5 day tropical vacation. It’s the first time I didn’t work while on vacation since 1998. That includes faxing copy from my honeymoon, flying home early to work on a pitch, writing in the hotel room bathroom while my family slept, staying in the room while my family went to Disneyland, etc. This time, I never read an email, answered a text, I deleted slack from my phone before I left. It’s been great. Not trying to trigger struggle porn just saying boundaries are 😌
