Teammate turned on the camera for a cute hello with her two year old. Almost on cue, the baby yanked her tank top over and her whole boob fell out. Thankfully it was a call mostly of women but yeesh.

I was on a screen share zoom with my manager and 1 other person and my manager was shirtless. He realized it a few minutes in, turned his camera off and didn’t say anything the rest of the meeting.

I was sharing my screen and forgot and opened up photo booth to see if I had anything in my teeth.

On a remote shoot, the producer was sharing their screen and I guess didn’t realize we could also see their texts, where they called someone on my team a “useless d-bag.” No one acknowledged it.

I accidentally shared the wrong screen for a few seconds and shared my notes app where I had furiously written out a note on my frustration over a project in very harsh language. It was a personal venting session that was not so kind to the people who came up with and approved this creative idea we were working on. I sat there asking, "can you see my screen?" and after a few seconds, someone said, "I can see your notes app." No one has brought it up and I haven't been fired yet... Mortified. And using a pen and paper for personal thoughts from now on.

I stood up and pressed the off video button. It didn’t stick. Scratched my balls (over pants) and realized that my video is still active. Was a client meeting too. Nobody said anything, there’s a chance that no one saw it 🤷‍♂️

I mean at least you had pants on, thankfully 😬

Not seen but someone wasn’t muted during a large (about 80 people) Teams meeting and dropped a loud F bomb. They were obv multi-tasking.

I had a full frontal moment thinking my camera was off. I realized it when a coworker texted me to let me know they could all see me moving around my room as God made me.

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

What's a good billable hour total for 2020? Given covid conditions (we faced slump in work about 2 months) and work from home productivity.

I am 7 years out in a transactional practice (real estate) and have an opportunity to move in house at a regionally respected company from a midsize firm. I have WFH flexibility at my current firm but bill about 1850-1900 per year. It would be about a 25% paycut. I have also been offered partnership starting in 2022 if I stay - not entirely clear what that long term structure looks like (would have to develop a partially independent book in next 3-5 years). Am I crazy if I leave?
