I guess it’s better than actually sitting around a table with co-workers, but video conferences aren’t much better.
And that’s where most of us are at right now because we’re stuck at home…so we better get used to it.
Here are some pretty funny tweets about the reality of what happens during video conferences.
1. Sorry. It’s permanent.

2. That is amazing.
So apparently whoever was in charge of live-streaming my brother’s church service knowingly or unknowingly used a googly-eyes filter on the priest. pic.twitter.com/3dGC6502iN

3. You’re living a lie.
Everybody in my Zoom meetings uses these virtual backgrounds that show them in national parks or magical places like Hogwarts, meanwhile I uploaded a photo of my clean living room and feel like I've been pulling one over on everyone for weeks.

5. Not funny at all.
My research team met on Zoom today so we can keep up with work. I added a virtual background and decided to have fun with it. But, I fell off my chair. However, my team has such deep and abiding respect for me that they didn't find this funny at all. Not at all. pic.twitter.com/LbplC3R5gL

6. They can hear you…
My husband's working from home and just shouted to me from the living room: "I'm going into a video meeting…" so I jokingly shouted back "I guess I should put a shirt on?" and then he finished his sentence "…and they can hear you."😳

7. Mrs. Potato Head.
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

9. It’s a lot more fun!
proposing on the beach:
– ignores social distancing advice
proposing on a Zoom call:
– can change your background to a sad clown if they say no
– Greg from Accounts is there for some reason

11. He sounds cool to me!
My kid just walked into my video conference, yelled "look at my penis," and hit the button on his fart machine. Working from home going really great!
