This past March, I was using my Zoom account to play poker with buddies the night before I had a meeting. I had an inappropriate background for the poker sesh. I didn't realize that Zoom defaults to the last used background, so when I turned my background on for the meeting the next day, there it was for 50 folks to see. I think on ordinary times I would have been fired.

Clearly I need to find a background throne flanked with hunky gym rats and shirtless psudo firefighters etc.

Once I double clicked on an excel file icon and while this file was opening, an already opened excel file was displayed for 4-5 seconds, which had a long list of my credit cards and their numbers. Good that I keep CVV in white font color. I immediately stopped screenshare and closed all of my personal excels... Fortunately it was an internal call with only 2-3 folks.

Do you have 45 credit cards? Seems pretty useless.

Did a presentation where I «borrowed» most of the deck from an earlier part of the project. Turns out I presented the BCG guy his own slides..

The client actually started asking questions whether I had actually had done any research, and he backed me up saying I had good insights to add.

Happened a few weeks ago. Joined a call a minute early and left my camera on while I went to make myself a cup of coffee. My dog jumped on the coach and started licking herself right in front of the camera. I came back and my entire team was cracking up

I do google searches in other tabs that include attending people's names as the string shows up in the tab name (internal calls only of course). Then I do my presentations and say nothing unless they call it out and then I feign embarrassment. Gotta try to have fun somehow in these crappy days!

Accidentally shared a a Google image search for “big cheeseburgers” when getting ready to present. My client was a vegan. 🤦‍♂️

I was hungry and short on time. I did eat a very big cheeseburger that weekend.

This happened to me as well back when I was in audit. It was quite awkward when we both noticed I had seen the client’s chat with another client contact saying how dumb we auditors are. Then we proceeded to discuss request list items...

Not something seen, but forgot I was unmuted during a call across the pond (6am for me), and my whole team heard me tell my husband goodbye that morning, which was along the lines of, “don’t get another damn speeding ticket... no I love *you* more.” I came back and the team was teasing me for being schmoopy bc I was typically very buttoned up at work.
