Early on in the pandemic, a few viral fails (poor Jennifer) served as a powerful reminder to always make sure to check if our mic and/or video are turned on while participating in virtual conferences or classes, lest we commit the unimaginably humiliating faux pas of accidentally exposing intimate details of our lives to a virtual room full of people. And yet, many people have been slow to learn this lesson, resulting in countless hilarious, embarrassing, and cringey stories.
1.) From CruisingLeReddit:
We had a guy in his car, unmutes his mic during a presentation to answer a question, and forgot to mute. Presentation carries on and then we abruptly hear him start ordering his lunch from Burger King through the drive through. Presentation stops, everyone listens to this poor kid order his whole lunch.
Another kid unmutes “can I get an order of mozza sticks?” About 5 mins of laughter before the presentation restarted
