Not quite a zoom meeting, but another partner called me and I didn’t answer because I was running out the door. On my way out, I was talking to my cat in my “cat voice” about how much she loves little pets. Unbeknownst to me, I had accidentally pocket dialed to return the call, which I realized because I heard my colleague laughing on the phone.

This reminds me of when my EM accidentally sent me his sexts intended for his gf. No pics, thank god.

Not me and not zoom, but a previous associate director used to use the toilet while on a weekly call. No mute! She would talk throughout and I could hear her urinating and flushing and not washing hands after.

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.

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.

How do you cope when you’re overwhelmed? I’ve been working until 11pm the past two weeks minus 1 day (bc it was my birthday) and I see no end in sight.

I know taking time for working out/etc is helpful but I don’t have the time because I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep or I can’t function. Sigh.
