Most embarrassing Zoom stories. I don’t think you can beat mine.

Today while on a team meeting, my wife walked behind me. Butt naked. Right after getting out of the shower. 

I even had the "blur" feature on. But it unblurred to show her.

I swear I'm never showing up on camera again. 

I'm fucking mortified.

Thankfully no it wasn’t recorded. But I’ve seriously had this nasty knot in my chest and stomach since it happened. It’s fucking with me!

take a breather and talk to your wife about the situation. Then talk with your coworkers to clear the air. idk just spitballing here.

Just apologized to my manager. He said not to sweat it. I asked him if I should apologize to the others and he said it’s not a big deal. I feel a bit better now.

Is she hot? (sorry, couldn't resist!)

My story isn't a zoom story but here goes: I went to the beach with my wife, the kids, and a group of friends families. Half a bottle of whiskey ended up on the scene and fun and games ensued.... a couple of us had the fantastic idea of waving our swimming trunks over our heads (whilst in the water so it wasn't indecent).
In my inebriated enthusiastic playfulness I threw my trunks hitting a friends wife in the face. I thought this was hilarious until she rapidly retreated out of the water with my swimming trunks in her hand.
I followed, asking for my trunks back. I could have sworn I stayed at a depth of water that still "covered" me up to the waist line, but apparently I confused my waist with my knees.
The rest of them were in stitches laughing, I got a good telling off from my own wife and haven't really touched the whiskey since then (it's been about 2 or 3 years).

Life is too short not to be able to laugh at yourself (and your mistakes) in my opinion.

The next "work dinner night" could be hilarious if you take her!

She is, but the weird blur filter going in and out made it more creepy than sexy. Also, that’s a hilarious story lol.

This is so funny. I have a similar story. I was in the ocean with some friends and these guys were playing volleyball next to us. The ball came flying at my friends face, so i jumped out to smack it away and my bikini top fell down. I flashed this whole group of guys and all my friends. Fun times.

1.) no matter the circumstance do not tell your wife, it is not worth it.
2.) Jeffrey Toobin from CNN masturbated in front of people on zoom thinking he was off camera and muted so you got that going for you.

So sorry to hear that.

Yes zoom shows up anyone walking in the background. I had my spouse walking behind me and zoom un blurred it. Fortunately, she was in her attire.

uhhh I am so sorry, I feel super bad for your wife. Did you tell her?

Hopefully someone was screen sharing, did anyone notice?

Nobody was screen sharing and a few people definitely noticed. They kind of blushed and looked away.

Didn’t tell my wife. She’d be mortified. Just apologized to my manager and he was super chill.

I gotta ask, how long would it need to be to tell her. 20 years? Or if you ever leave that company, like 2 companies later?

Probably a month or so after I eventually leave this company. We’re also moving soon and our new place will enough rooms so her closet and my office aren’t right next to each other, so maybe even after we move I can tell her.

Don't tell her.

I mean, I assume she's smoking hot and looks fantastic in the buff, but unless she's the kind to consider going to a topless beach while on vacation, the mortification might be too much.

But I also do not know your wife. Maybe she'll find it hilarious. However, unless you are completely sure she'll think it's funny, just never ever tell her.

I went to my fiancé and asked her. If she would want to know, if she walked naked in the background while I was on video.......
... It took awhile her to stop being scared/embarrassed to realize it was a hypothetical. Definitely recommend not telling her anytime soon.

(1) don't tell your wife. No good will result of it. If you must tell her - wait till you leave your current company.
(2) laugh it off. No one will really care unless it becomes a habit.

Might want to move that camera angle so it faces a wall as well.

What's the orientation of your home office? By the sounds of it you're either in your bedroom or a common area of the house. I'd suggest making some adjustments to make sure that doesn't happen again. Sorry to hear this happened, I'd be mortified as well!

Yeah I’ve already adjusted it. It’s a long room that’s 60% office and 40% where we just keep our clothes and other random junk.

Erm, you're right. I can't beat that. I've had co-workers spouses walk in frame in their underwear but not that.

I reckon that you need to tell her. How else is she not going to do that again?

I've shared this story here before. Back when I was an SDR, had a qualification call with a prospect. When we jumped on zoom, she wasn't aware that she had her camera on. She had clearly just gotten out of the shower and started getting dressed right in front of the camera. I panicked and ended the call

I had just put in my two weeks and was camera off, mic on (had to speak). My friend facetimed me to bullshit and first thing I said was "yooooo I just put in my 2 weeks. I don't give a fuuuuuuuuck anymore. I'm just smoking weed rn."

Lmao, found that kind of funny.

Oh, and one piece of advice, treat a zoom meeting like any o their meeting, when you’re on camera you’re in your office with the door closed and no more mishaps like that one are guaranteed!

SaaS Demo to a bunch of old bookkeepers about operational management software for trades and services, lady who runs it decided to post it on the local bookkeeping group on facebook to see if others would be interested. Midway through the demo my share screen goes full pink. One circle, then two circles form a massively green drawn male genitalia on the screen. I immediately stop share screen trying to not burst out laughing at what the fuck just happened. Two young teens cameras quickly turn on, rude fingers out and leave the chat. Turns out bookkeeping lady didn’t put a password on the zoom room, kids just having a laugh. Definitely made my day more entertaining!

When a lead answers the phone for the first time in history only to scream at me to stop calling my first reaction is to laugh really loud. I don't even think about it.
