I’m definitely going out at work. It’s even preferable I think. That way my life insurance payout is more because it happened at work.

Doesn’t matter. The idea of dying miserable, with a bunch of coworkers’ faces who wished this meeting was an email as the las thing I see, is depressing AF

You need to take a day, rest, and refocus. Worst fears shouldn't involve work at all. My worst fear: nuclear terrorism within blast/EMP range of my house, while I'm traveling somewhere else, so I have to battle my way across the world to get home and not knowing if my family survived/are ok. Zoom call death is not even on the same level.

Military service left me worried about things on a global scale. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I think that every time I’m eating lunch during a meeting. “What if I choke and my coworkers watch helplessly as I die.” I mean if obviously go off camera for that. I’m a polite Midwesterner.

Good thing my video is always off
