Someone from my team accidentally turned on their camera completely naked and had no idea cause their sound was off. Was quite the sight

likefunnyupliftingsmart

No, he didn’t get in trouble. We’ve all worked together for 2+ years and know each other well, nobody was suspicious it was intentional. He was beyond embarrassed and scared so we made a lighthearted joke and moved on.

Listen. If the CEO of a large media company wants to cover himself from head to toe with chocolate syrup and dance naked on a zoom call, it’s totally within his right to do that.

I'm sure head-to-toe chocolate syrup would be considered blackface.

Don’t know but it could be fun to guess. It was described as “lavatorial”. If it was actually clever and funny and not offensive to any group of people, I’d almost forgive it.

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
