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.

Hi Excel pros! I’m stumped and appreciate your help in advance. My team is leading Webex meetings with 100+ participants. I’d like to collect the participants’ email addresses to send follow-ups - but want to collect these email addresses in a clean format that can be easily input into excel. We run a VBA script contingent on that. Asking for emails in the chat box isn’t working (too many participants, formatting is messy). What do you recommend? Was thinking Webex poll. Would love your input.

Generally curious how many companies offer phone reimbursement? My last gig did not but the current one does.

How is consulting pay in Canada?

Would Canada offer good pay (not as good as tier 1 cities in US but higher than London/Paris/Lux etc) or would the move not be worth it?
