Why Don't You Go Ahead and Come In On Sunday, Too

The following is an email sent to a co-worker of mine from one of her friends. I have personally met the girl who wrote the email and I assure you that this is a true story that happened yesterday morning.


Good Morning friends!
I just wanted to tell you all about my lovely Monday morning. I have a weekly call on Monday mornings with our entire sales region (4 states: account teams, managers, and operational director... probably 50 people). I skipped out today because I have a lot to catch up on from being out on Thursday afternoon and Friday. I missed the best call -- probably the best call in the HISTORY of conference calls....

So we are starting to use video cameras at our desk for video conferencing, and when we are on team calls, we are supposed to be using them. The settings on the video are supposed to make it so that people only see you when you are talking. This guy was working from home today, and didn't have his video camera settings correctly working. While the call was going on, the camera was being shot on him. He was NAKED at home. So, everyone in the office is snickering because he obviously doesn't know that his camera is on. It gets worse... He stands up and is jacking off in front of the ENTIRE team, and doesn't know that his camera is on. The operational director who is leading the meeting (his boss's boss) calls his boss and makes her call him and tell him to turn off his camera. So, yes, ladies. We allllll got a peep show this morning, and a good example of a career ending move.

Thank you and have a great day.

Who jerks one out on a conference call? You must have some hot co-workers.

Did anyone save it for YouTube?

I know, for real!

Somehow I doubt it. I have a feeling that got deleted just about as fast as he got fired!

Oh sweet jesus. That is maybe the most hysterical thing I've ever heard. You'd have to move. To another country.

Shelly said...

Hey PChef! Welcome! I literally laughed until I cried when I read that email. Yes, I would definitely move to another country. Preferably one where they don't speak English!

Lys said...

WOW... WOW... umm.. I'm speechless...

Shelly said...

Lys,

Yep, Wow just about sums it up. That dude is so fired.

OMG. I sit on lots and lots and lots and LOTS of conference calls. I'm usually really glad we don't have video conferencing, but? That.would.make.the.eleventy-seven.calls.today.worthwhile.

I live with the hope that this will someday happen on one of my conference calls. I'll keep you posted.

Tessie and Hot,

I know! Wouldn't that rock if it happened to you? I would never complain about a conference call again if that happened! I live in hope, too. Although the company I work for is technologically still in the Dark Ages, so there's no hope of us getting video conferencing ever.
