'There is a guy in Zoom court literally going through the car wash': 20+ Zoom court mishaps

'There is a guy in Zoom court literally going through the car wash': 20+ Zoom court mishaps

Zoom is very useful for some things, but it's really best to go to court in person if you can. It was a necessity during the dark years of the early 2020s, when we all needed to stay indoors and protect ourselves from illness. We suddenly found ourselves having Zoom holidays, with forty family members all trying to talk at once from their separate dining rooms. Instead of going to school in person, the kids spent a while getting their education via screens. Even things like doctor's appointment…

‘I was NOT on mute’: Guy gets caught in 4k cursing his coworkers when he forgets to mute his mic during a meeting

Back in the day, people with stage fright could conquer their fears by imagining the crowd in a more vulnerable state than themselves. Picturing an audience of strangers in their whitey-tighties is far more embarrassing than stumbling over your words into the mic, right? But nowadays, stage-scared people can no longer use this timeless tactic because we have a new beast to tackle: Zoom calls.

'I turned on my camera and allowed the entire call to see': Student maliciously complies with club rules

It might help if this school club was just a tad bit more accomodating. Maybe they'll change their policies after a chat with one student. Since the beginning of the 2020s, people have adapted video calling into their everyday lives. For a while, people used it for work and school when we all had to be isolated from each other. But even after the fact, people still love video calls. Facetiming your family is a great way to have a face-to-face conversation that's a little more personal than a ph…

'How do I get you to stop sending me emails?': IT director receives nonstop sales emails from digital software company, maliciously complies to get them to stop contacting him

We all know what it's like to be bombarded with nonstop emails with seemingly no end in sight. This IT director was looking for a digital signage company to partner with and tested out one company's software using their free trial. He ultimately went with another company, but unfortunately, this meant that he would be spammed with email after email for the foreseeable future. Now, before he resorted to malicious compliance, he tried just about everything else. He tried unsubscribing. No change.…

‘[I'll] smile for a raise': Boss messages his employee privately asking her to ‘smile more’ in their weekly teams video call; she refuses and hilarity ensues in the comments

Women everywhere are accustomed to weird old men asking them to ‘smile more’. The classic back-handed diss has become so frequent in everyone's life that we've all learned to roll our eyes and move on with our day, well-aware that ‘smiling more would make us seem so much prettier’. I'll smile later when something's funny, but will never do so just because a random stranger suggested it as a beauty tip.

‘He joined 10 minutes late… Boss was [furious]’: Careless employee nearly misses a 6AM call with all of the C-level bosses after disrespecting the meeting coordinator

Working for a company across multiple timezones can be a challenge. For the CEO's in London, it may seem simple to schedule a lunch meeting, but for their lowly employees on the west coast of the USA, it's 4am. To avoid all of the WFH employees showing up with robes on, their eyelids drifting shut, and a useless coffee in hand, teams need to coordinate heavily in order to make meetings go smoothly.

'She didn't say we had to be seen': Employee rebels against her boss who forced her to turn her camera on during virtual meetings, maliciously complying by sitting out of frame

One of the best perks of working from home is that you can look absolutely depraved, un-showered, and unprofessional– and nobody needs to know it! You can click through emails, study spreadsheets, and make Zoom calls, while wearing pajamas in the comfort of your home. Some bosses however– tyrannical micromanagers, that is– will insist on destroying that beautiful facade that you've grown to love and demand that their employees turn their cameras on for every meeting.

'My manager insists I turn my camera and mic on': Boss insists employee join video call on their day off, fired-up employee shows up with shocking background

If you're going to call a meeting to order and inconvenience your employees, at least be on time for it. Some people believe that if they're the boss, they're allowed to be late. That's kind of a boss's reality, because everyone has to wait for them to join in before the meeting begins. But it shows your employees that you don't value their time at all. It says to them that you'll show up when you feel like it, but they had better be on time, or else. You can't punish your boss for being late,…
