One of my coworkers started complaining that I didn't wear a mask on a Zoom call, because I might "infect the people coming into my house". That so-called person is my house cleaner, and we're both triple vaccinated and are fine not wearing masks. Should I tell my coworker to mind their own business?

Sounds like a Karen. I would certainly put them in their place unless it's absolutely crucial you retain a good working relationship with them


People like this are why we’re in day 800 of two weeks to slow the spread


100% tell them to bug off


Yes, tell them to mind their own business!


Tell them to f*** off


Lol, you could go camera free and tell them that you know they get alot of anxiety seeing other people/your background so to make sure you're both comfortable you'll help them out 😄. Seriously though, it's I'd your right to conduct your home as it makes sense for you, you're doing so safely, don't have to justify it to this nosy person. Also really shouldn't announce your houekeeper's medical information, it's not ok for your coworker to even insinuate that it is appropriate. Set the boundary, but at the end of the day it really does sound like the person may be struggling. Maybe ask them if they're ok and check-in from time to time, before diving into work, if you're feeling generous.


I too like to partake in creative writing.

A huge chunk of people are still literally living in fear

Yeah 100%

Literally none of their business how you conduct your life at home

Yes you should!!!!

lol what? Wow (and I’m triple vaxxed and support public mask mandates)

100% it’s none of their business

Wait what people wear masks in their own homes (excluding the case where a household member is sick?)?????

oh god.

I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.

I wore a sleeveless blouse like this one below for a zoom interview. Is that okay/biz casual? The v neck part keep parting apart so I had to pull it together multiple times during the interview.

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.


Wats your take guys ? I don't like hybrid model as it works for those who are locals of same city where the office is . For me i have to leave my parents, hometown and travel 2000kms to Bangalore for joining office how it is hybrid for me ? I still worry about myself and family health not sure about COVID. Also most of my team sits in Hyderabad few are in Bangalore .office should be optional. Indeed we were able to work in past 2 years right ? Then why force people to office ?


My M just gave me the following feedback about being professio. Is he correct? This is my first time getting this feedback. 1. The way I wear my hair (I wear it natural or in a pony) 2. During a Zoom call I went to place a dirty mug in the sink (4 feet behind me). 3. He said I fidget too much on camera ( I have mild ADHD). 4.Tshirts are unprofessional and I should wear blouses


Anyone else have lots of issues with the quality of video calls on Google hangouts? Zoom and even Teams seem better.


Who here has been following the Teams / Slack chats at their client(s) this #log4j #log4shell weekend? 1. Are you pleasantly surprised how efficient and coordinated the various teams at each client have been with staying on top of it and handling it like pros? 2. Have you offered to help?


Comfy pants that also look “professional” if you happen to stand up on a zoom ?
