Who are these people you’re working with, savages? Some of us (well, me in particular) prefer voice calls at a highly sensible 3 PM. People who enjoy 8 AM Zoom calls are immediately suspected sadists and sociopaths in my careful estimation.

I’ve worked with loonies that wanted 6 am in person meetings. I basically laughed the times someone suggested I come in before I normally even wake up, before kids are at school, etc just to discuss something that is inevitably not an emergency of any sort. And just to add to the OP’s message, we don’t need calls after 5 pm unless it really can’t wait until tomorrow, which is usually can.

I have a call at 7 am today and everyone’s just going to have to deal with me half awake, barely brushed hair, and my two kids in and out of the office. These early morning video meeting people deserve a special place in hell.

1. I’m a pandemic hire at this new agency and I like it enough, but I feel SO detached from all these humans I’ve never interacted with IRL… like, I just don’t give a flying fuck about these team-building zoom calls. :( 2. My boyfriend and I often just go off cam / mute during the more useless meetings and have sex instead. I secretly hope everyone who is muted/cam off in meetings is getting some action.

Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.

At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
