Nothing like sharing the wrong screen and having something embarrassing on your other monitor... I mentioned in it another thread, but I'm a big bidet person and happened to share my Amazon search for bidets with a client. Fortunately, they were also considering a bidet and I was able to tout the wonders of having a bidet.ย 

I had a colleague one time forget they were sharing their screen and start typing up the notes from the call they were on... including how much he disliked the person he was speaking with.

Stories like these are why I check and double check my screens before I go on any screen sharing call.ย

I had an AE shadowing me on one of my closing calls. Instead of chatting with me privately on zoom, our man sent this message to everyone on the call (both founders and their VP Sales):ย 

"These guys are pretty technical. I'm gonna go take a dump and be right back"ย

I had a client ask if she could list her V-Steaming on the platform and didn't know what it was so she described it, in detail.ย 

If you don't know what that is google it on your non-work computer

I took a client meeting while driving and I thought I was muted. I was not muted. That was the day this client learned that my true passion, my real talent is creative cusses.

I was on a video call and wanted some water. The bottle was about a few feets away on a table that was slightly out of reach. Tried to extend and reach and fell from my chair on the call. So embarrassing lol
