A great many people are new users of video conferencing thanks (cough) to the COVID-19 pandemic. It appears that many are learning some hard lessons! Zoom has become the most popular tool, and what follows are some hilarious “fails” over the last month or so. Here’s my favorite list so far.
Jennifer is now famous! This lady accidentally takes her laptop to the bathroom while still on camera! “Jennifer! Oh my God!”
These coworkers reacted to seeing that their coworker forget he wasn’t wearing pants when their call ended.
This lady’s boss turned herself into a potato during a call and couldn’t figure out how to undo it.
my boss turned herself into a potato on our Microsoft teams meeting and can’t figure out how to turn the setting off, so she was just stuck like this the entire meeting pic.twitter.com/uHLgJUOsXk

No picture for this one, but definitely a #ZoomFail when you have to listen to your classmates chew loudly on a call
First class of the day, Professor asks us to unmute our Mic's to make the classroom setting on zoom more "real". Now listening to lecture plus 2 people breathing heavily and 1 munching on chips loudly into the mic #COVID19 #Virtual #ZoomUniversity #zoomfail

We can definitely sympathize with this next woman who had to suffer with a potato chip crumb down her shirt!
I just dropped a pringle crumb down my shirt in my zoom class. I now have to sit here for the next 45 mins or so with a cheddar flavored chip crumb in between my boobs. #zoomfail

“Once you pop, you just can’t stop?”
Be sure to have the audio on for this hilarious situation!

Beware of the private chat feature in Zoom! It’s not so private!
A lot of blood is running cold due to this tweet. https://t.co/dbcN6GZtee

Sometimes we all just need to SPELL out our names on a call, huh?

That darn half-second delay can really put a kink into things!

Taking a big hit from your large pink bong during class is probably not a good idea…

Can we all agree, without pics it didn’t happen? LOL
Has anyone else forgotten they were on a video call for work and just lifted their shirt up over their head? 😑#zoomfail

Sometimes, transparency isn’t good! Especially when you unintentionally share user names.

And lastly, it’s important to get your timing right when leaving a video call!
