This is when more relevant while working from home. Pretty funny..
I don't even work in an office and I thought that was funny.The latency when trying to talk to someone on the phone drives me insane.Theyre the most unnatural conversations I've ever had.
This video is funny because it does hit all the marks. It doesn't take too long to experience every incident in there.
On our system (Skype), you would just join and the facilitator would ask who joined (your name wasn't announced like in the video). Everytime I joined, someone else would too at the same time. I didn't know if I should wait for the other guy to say his name first or I should go. No matter which way, I was always talking over someone else.
That just got a rave review from my wife …… New territory for her IRL
"Yeah, go ahead" [long silence] both speak at the same time.
The echo and the dog barking was too real haha
Google “conference call bingo”
thank me later. Been doing the work from home thing for the last couple years.
Too funny - had an terrible conference call yesterday...cats & dogs running amuck around me (squeaky toys), people talking over each other, awkward periods of silence, people getting dropped from the call, ...people on the wrong conference call, non-working pin numbers...a wasted hour of my life, can't wait till next weeks calls. Luckily I can sit in my pajamas while working all day. Looks like my new reality of non-sense.
Haha, my poor better half is dealing with this as a public school "media center specialist" (librarian) sent home and trying to attempt the ridiculously impossible task of converting in-person learning to remote learning. Frankly, they need to just give the kids a pass for this year and tell them to enjoy an extended summer vacay.
Although I've worked from home for the last seven years, I've avoided that mess pretty successfully. Have done a handful of actual telephone conference calls back when I telecommuted to a firm (through 2 years ago), and none of even those for the past two years (since I went to sole practice exclusively). My laptop has always had a piece of tape over the camera and I don't see any reasonable possibility of ever having to do a conference call again, whether via internet or phone.
Missus held a catchup conference call with her extended family a few nites back. I didn't actively participate, but provided backing music
Microsoft Teams here. WebEx too.
That's funny. I had a similar meeting yesterday.
Fun with home teleconferencing....
At work we use Skype for our teleconferencing, but I had to teleconference with another company that was hosting with WebEx. As soon as I logged into the call, the camera and microphone from my computer were automatically turned on. I hadn't shaved for days and my hair was a mess. I looked pretty rough. The other participants on the call all had their video feed off but they could all see me scrambling trying to figure out how to turn the camera off and to mute the microphone from my headset. As I'm frantically going between trying to figure out how to turn everything off or cover the camera lens, my 14 year old daughter comes in the room and see herself on camera and starts dancing wildly behind me. I finally got the camera off and the mic muted. Nobody was talking. After a couple minutes of silence, the presenter started talking. Only one other person that I knew on the call came in late so therefore didn't see the Three Stooges routine.
I must have done something really bad in a previous life....
I'm glad I left the corporate world in 1980.
