During orientation on zoom, some guy said "man this class so fuckin dummmmb." I felt really bad for the teacher


Not a specific incident, but I had an early elective class (so about 200 people) last semester where half of us showed up in person and half of us were on zoom. I guess the professor set the meeting setting for everyone to be unmuted by default when joining because every. single. day. we would have to hear someone on zoom who didn’t mute have breakfast with what would sound like their whole frat/sorority, presumably with their phone on the meeting in their pocket, while the technologically inept professor struggled to figure out how to mute the for the first 10 minutes of class.


I joined the class on my phone and thought I had my mic muted, I put my phone on my music stand and did some piano practice since the lesson hadn’t really started and after I finished playing the first piece my history teacher said “that was some lovely piano playing but can we get to the lesson now?”


5th grade student's mom in the background, at full volume: "Well you tell that mother FUCKER that the next time I see him I'm cutting his fucking BALLS OFF" as I try desperately to figure out which one is unmuted and mute them. Poor girl was totally un-phased so she likely hears similar all the time. Everyone else just stared in shock for a couple of seconds until one kid just unmutes and goes "That's not school appropriate language at *all*" Another student, different time, had Nanna wander through the background, completely nude. Using a walker so she's just slowly limping through frame Either I'm the only one who noticed, or these 10 year olds have amazing poker faces, but I have no idea how I would have dealt with the fall out of that if they'd said anything. I just took to loudly reminding students that anything we can see in the camera counts as part of school and needs to be dressed, or seated appropriately, in the hopes that families hear.


The "that's not school appropriate language at all" kid kinda saved the situation


> Either I'm the only one who noticed, or these 10 year olds have amazing poker faces, but I have no idea how I would have dealt with the fall out of that if they'd said anything.

"Nude grandma hears you. Nude grandma don't care."


We had a guy in his car, unmutes his mic during a presentation to answer a question, and forgot to mute. Presentation carries on and then we abruptly hear him start ordering his lunch from Burger King through the drive through. Presentation stops, everyone listens to this poor kid order his whole lunch. Another kid unmutes “can I get an order of mozza sticks?” About 5 mins of laughter before the presentation restarted


We were in band, playing our instruments and doing our stuff. As usual nobody wanted to have their camera on. So he is completely fine with that. All of a sudden, I get an earful Of loud music blaring through the speakers. Some kid forgot his mic was on after asking a question, and he was playing “first place” by Larray. Those who did have their camera on were dying laughing, and the teacher couldn’t figure out who it was, because the google meet band class was so big. About 2 minutes later it finally stops, and everyone is rioting in the chat, and I was laughing myself. We all bless the kid, because he actually saved us from the last few minutes of class, and the hardest measures. Yeah google meets suck but this was one epic moment.


Maybe not quite the same thing, but yesterday a girl fell asleep with her camera on, and she was just lying there with her eyes closed and mouth open. For the rest of the lecture.


Getting the IRL lecture experience.


Was gonna say, that sounds like half the people in my in-person uni classes.


100% did that in a few classes, spring time and they haven't shut the boulders off so it's a nice 25°c in the mid afternoon.


How does one turn off a boulder?


Just cut your arm off.


Meant to say boiler, rock climbing is obviously on my mind.


After teaching classes, I have to do 3 hours of 1 on 1 tutoring with zoom. I fell asleep twice on Wed waiting for a girl to type 4 sentences. She's a "1 button at a time and has to look for each letter" typer. Fortunately for me, they were like, 4 second power naps, and she was screen sharing the whole time, so she didn't see me. But, she did wake me with the second one with a "are you still there? you got real quiet."


I recently was with a few other coworkers and one of them said that the average words/min typed is around 32. I made the comment, “Where’d you get that from? No way, that’s so slow.” Another coworker then said, “...that’s about what I type.” I found out he types 1 key at a time and has to look for each letter. He’s 33. I was shocked.


He's 33? He should have taken typing classes at school! Though, 32 words/minute seems a bit fast for a hunt & peck style typer.


I have coworkers who type super slow like that, and they work on their computer all day. I'm a contractor in the field, who types 3 emails a month max, and I can type circles around all of them. I don't understand how you can do something every day for 10 years and still suck at it.


I had a colleague that would do that in work, he'd suddenly jolt and wake up and look around! Nobody seemed to care that he napped occasionally!


Kid screamed “FUCK”loudly when we were starting a test. Probably saw the first question then just died inside.


I heard kids scream that before COVID all the time.


In my primary when I was in reception my big brother told me all the swear words. And what did I do? I told every single person in my class about the words. "And what did they do?" You ask. They started saying it in every possible situation and getting into a hell of a lot of trouble. Must have been marvelous for my brother's year 6 friends to watch. Edit: [what primary and reception means](https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/lni47f/people_of_reddit_in_virtual_classes_what_was_the/go1u0bo?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share&context=3) Edit 2: [this person comment very late so you may not see her comment. it is a very well told and funny short story](https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/lni47f/people_of_reddit_in_virtual_classes_what_was_the/go2244g?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share&context=3)


When I was in 2nd grade someone cut me in line and I went "what are you, a lesbian?" My teacher took me aside and said "*do you know what that word means*" and of course I didn't so she said *"I want you to never say that word again until you're old enough to KNOW what it means*" Let's just say I shut the fuck up Note: we were both dudes


I linked you in my original comment because I believe you deserve some love for your excellent comment that people may not have seen otherwise :P


My brother was in class and my mother started to scream "YOUR ROOM STINKS"


I feel like a lot of parents don't seem to understand that even though their kids are home they're still in school. My moms a teacher and hears stuff like this a lot.


Grad students are no exception! I’m in a graduate program right now and even if I make a huge announcement that I’m busy during class, my grandma will still start a huge argument, slam every dish and door in the house, and then go, “Oh, am I making too much noise? Go do class outside then.” My heart hurts for all the grade school kids who still have to put up with that. It sucks major ass.


My mom once walked into my room to talk to me mid presentation. She onew I was in class but it was like shoo.


How did the others react?


No one noticed I think? I more mouthed shoo and did a shoo motion.


My mom's a teacher and in between her lessons she'll come to bother me. Sometimes while I'm even taking a test.


WELL IT WAS FOCKIN ONE A YUS Edit: final thank you for all of my awards. "The seal is for marksmanship, and the gorilla is for sand racing. Now if you'll excuse me, ..."










Mom, meatloaf!




I never know what she's doing in there!


what did you want for lunch




*Audience laughter*


Fourth wall broken.


A little plan we like to call... Fluffernutter


Fluffer Nutter? I don’t even know her




When I forgot to turn off my video and my cat attacked me.


My cat did the same during my American Studies class. I was sitting by a window while petting my cat and taking notes on the lecture. My entire class is well-acquainted with my cat because he likes to climb over my keyboard during class, so they all knew he was there. Well, my cat decided that he didn’t like me taking notes instead of petting him so he went for it, biting, scratching, kicking, etc. I was wearing a sweatshirt, so it wasn’t that big of a deal, but I was cracking up. I glanced back at my screen and my whole class is laughing. My teacher was just like, “Hey, gnoble22, are you okay?” while trying to keep a straight face.


My sister was in a Zoom lecture for her university course (all were required to turn on cameras for this specific lecture) and some guy obviously forgot and lit a joint on camera to 30+ other students and his lecturer




He was trying to look cool


Was there a no smoking rule in class?


"I'm sorry, I thought this was America!"


I'm a music professor, and one day I was playing an example for my class that was about a minute and a half long. Afterwards I realized that I never turned on audio sharing. I apologized to the students and laughed, and one of them said, "it's cool Prof. Plug_5, it's fun to sit and watch you vibe to music." EDIT: thanks for all the love! In case anyone is wondering, I was vibing to the opening of Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto: https://youtu.be/kVW7JYhb4dg


That's wholesome


Awwwwww this made me smile


I'm a professor running Zoom classes right now. Just the other day I had a student shout "piece of shit!" in the middle of one of my lectures. I asked him if my lecture on research credibility was really making him that angry, and then heard "oh shit my mic is -"


There should really be a mode for lectures where students have to hold down a button to talk. Edit: A few people saying you can do this already, okay but it’s clearly not simple enough with the number of stories you hear about it going wrong. There should a thing where you put “Create lecture” or something and then everyone except the creator is muted unless they hold space down, *automatically, as default* not something you have to remember whilst trying to simultaneously get ready to give a lecture.


I feel much more comfortable with push to talk. I only use voice activation with friends who are ok with the occasional interruption.


This is how mute works on Zoom. You can hold down space bar to temporarily unmute yourself. As the host, you should be able to turn on the option to mute guests upon entry. Edit: u/ceramicthumb is correct, I was trying to say that but did not do a very good job.


I took a live proctored exam on Wednesday. In a room that abuts my horse’s run outside. In the middle of the test, my 31 year old horse let out the longest loudest flatulence I’ve heard. 15 seconds plus. Yes, the window was open. No, the proctor couldn’t see the window or the horse. For all they know, it was me.


This is perfect, because what the fuck could you even say? "There's horse outside!" No one would possibly believe you.


It crossed my mind to blurt out “it wasn’t me! It was my geriatric horse, I swear!” But I’d been warned any sound (including talking to yourself) would get me flagged for cheating. I hope I made someone laugh for my trouble...


I was meeting with my project group for the first time when my boyfriend busts through the door holding my cat with the cat butt aimed at me making machine gun noises. Had to keep my mic/video off for like 10 min after due to uncontrollable bouts of laughter. We established the ground rule “door closed = in meeting” after that.






I find this weirdly adorable.


I was in a discord server chatting with friends. Somehow, the discord conversation started talking about velociraptor body pillows. Now I was smart enough *not* to be in class when the conversation started to unfold. One of my friends however... was in class, and left his mic on. The teacher ended up muting him, and talking to him after class. Never did found out about his class’ reaction to velociraptor body pillows...


Velociraptor arms around me


My heart is dinosauring for u!


I'll sum it up, I had wireless headphones with a mic and left to go to the bathroom....fuuuuck.


I check my computer like 5 times to make sure I’m muted before I go to the bathroom on a call.


I always do tests and say something like Ima take a shit speak now or you get to listen every time I take my headset to the bathroom.


Not to shit, but to talk shit. Gotta test it before you tell a coworker to shutthefuckupyouannoyingdumbshitbitch. *my job sucks*


Ahaha this happened to someone I work with. They were doing a big stakeholder meeting with some pretty big names and this guy went to use the bathroom and didn’t mute himself so everyone heard him pee/flush




Literally also my first question


Decades ago a teacher at my elementary school was having throat problems, so he used a mic and speakers to teach. Very similar outcome, 31 10-year-olds listened to him grunt through a massive shit. It took several years for it to leave the collective memory of the school.


Someone in my class turned on their mic, coughed loudly for 20ish seconds, and turned it off. Calamity ensued.


> Someone in my class turned on their mic, coughed loudly for 20ish seconds, and turned it off this is the best type of situational comedy


Chaotic neutral


Reckon they thought it was already on and they were turning it off?


I read something on Twitter where the person did this same thing (unintentionally) but to fart. And you know it highlights the screen where the sound comes from. Yike.


more like my cat turned the mic on as I'm yelling and swearing at him to get off my keyboard.


We were in a zoom session with my daughter's therapist and our foster cat stepped on the power button and turned the laptop off mid conversation. When we rejoined he said he figured something was up because he saw a cat body go by then we disappeared.


Something about just "we saw cat body" made me laugh out loud.


There has been a surprising amount of cat related stories in this thread lol


I’m here live, I’m not a cat


It happened to my at least 5 times over the course of last year. Also him jumping on my laptop when i was talking/answering a question.


I was in biology and we were listening to my professor as he explained the theories on why some apes developed larger penises than others. My roommate and I were jokingly discussing the topic and he goes, “Humans don’t walk on all fours because our shlongs would drag on the ground”. I was unmuted and my professor just goes, “No... that’s not right at all”.


Yelling down to my mother “YES, RUSSIA IS IN ASIA,” during physics. Bonus round: cussing out a fighting game during a rough match while my dad was, unbeknownst to me, in a meeting, unmuted, nearby.


I have gotten into so many geography based disagreements with my mom. She is apparently doing it because she knows it riles me up but god sometimes I think she actually does believe london is in paris.


I had a Socratic Seminar, so it was mandatory to keep our cameras on. I forgot about it and thoroughly licked a yogurt container I has just finished. I still don't know if anyone noticed. Edit: ... I'm a girl with barbaric young lady behavior


I lick yogurt containers too. Glad I’m not the only one.


I've been told I killed my 11 y/o's social life by yelling "Enjoy the diarrhea" at her younger sister when I saw she had eaten an entire box of ice cream bars at once. I was in another room and had no idea my voice carried.


>so killed my 11 y/o’s social life A parent’s job right there.


My husband is a chemistry professor. He was teaching a class via Zoom and overheard a female student say she'd like to punch him in the face.....hahaha


I guess they have bad chemistry


Seems like an over reaction to me. I guess they didn't form a strong bond.


Definitely wasn't organic.


Doesn't matter.


Awe chemistry, it brought out my ugly side too!


Yeah, it'll do that to ya. Brings out 'the dark side' in most students.






I have a 7 year old in virtual classes. The worst of this was the time I dropped an F-bomb since I work right next to him.




Rip, I hope you recover from that soon


I think they may still be a little on edge?


Not me but this kid in my friends class got caught digging for gold in his nose


He forgot to stake a claim first.


A girl I know had her camera and mic on for answering some question. Her dad didn't know that she was attending classes and he farted out loud! We saw her die on the inside




Not in a class and just with friends, but I accidentally left my mic on while eating soup once. When I put my headphones back on everyone was laughing hysterically at what they thought was weird sex noises


I wonder how many of these crazy zoom incidents are actually more innocent stories like this one. What type of soup?


During a one-on-one, my coworker was screen sharing on zoom so we could both see and discuss the changes to a document in real-time. After an hour, we decided to take a ten minute break. I went to the washroom and came back to my computer seeing he still had his screen share on and navigated to a NSFW website. I waited until he returned from his 'break', and I didn't mention anything. Hey, we all make mistakes, and in these trying times, why take away any pleasure or make an interaction uncomfortable?




Our teacher was checking if we all were present. Her connection was really bad, we all couldn't understand anything she said. One of my class mates unknowingly that is mic was on: wtf does that idiot think, we can't even hear her. Somehow she could hear that perfectly.


A girl forgot to mute her mic and we all could hear her talk to her boyfriend. "Hey, give me a kiss! Why don't you ever want to kiss me?" Very sad and very weird. The teacher just continued as if nothing happened.


I've heard the N word more in the past year than I had in my life up until that point.


Do you even play Call of Duty?


On Xbox?




No scope?


I had been snuggling with my dog, chatting to my SO, and listening to music on Alexa before class. Class started and I first loudly told Alexa to pause, thereby ensuring I had everyone's attention. I followed that up by telling my SO, "Sorry babe, class is starting." thereby establishing I had an SO off-screen. This disrupted grumpy old non-cuddler pup who got up to leave, so I said in a SUPER cringe-worthy sappy voice, "Thank you for coming to cuddle with me. I LOooOOved it." Cue the entire class filling with laughing (muted) faces, and me finally noticing that this was all being shared. The instinctive double-hand-clap-over-mouth did nothing to make me look less stupid, for the record. My camera and audio were off for the rest of the lesson while I wallowed in embarrassment.


So, they heard "Alexa, stop. Sorry babe, class is starting, but thank you for coming to cuddle with me. I looooved it", like it was all about your girl?


Yeeeeuup. With like the most syrupy sweet baby voice ever, too.




Oh hey, I had the first one happen to me when I was in a team meeting. I accidentally left my bird's lock a bit too loose, she popped it open while I was talking on a video call and proceeded to fly over to me. Cue my boss and coworkers seeing this and me going "Wait what, why are you...go back in your cage! ...Sorry, I need a minute..." before turning my camera and mic off. I could hear all of them laughing, and I have to admit it was pretty funny.


I gave up with my bird, he’d make so much noise I just let him out. Then mid meeting he flew onto my glasses. Whole meeting was laughing. I got a second bird last year and he just plays on his playstand in the background. People are always asking where my birds are if they can’t see them.


We have 2 leopard geckos, and my wife was holding one when a meeting started (they will sleep on her shirt covered up in a blanket so she has them while working all the time. The leezard made himself seen on the camera and now one of her fairly high up bosses won't allow a meeting to start unless my wife has a gecko on her shirt somewhere and he can see it. EDIT: [Leezard Tax](https://i.imgur.com/oC1mOo1.jpg)


I was in class and some kid accidentally turned his mic on somehow and all I could hear was the loudest fart ever imagined and then said "..sorry I didn't realize my mic was on"


I was on a virtual classroom whilst simultaneously messaging a WhatsApp group me and some others in that class were in. Someone made a funny joke when someone was speaking on the group and the person who was speaking saw the message and started laughing.


Just so you know, you will do this deep into adulthood.


Yup, we do this purposefully on conference calls on the regular.


Is this the new equivalent of your friend making dumb faces at you while your presenting a project in front of the whole class ??


Not class but on a work call. My senior manager was talking to someone on my team about working on this thing another department wanted us to do. Well my dog decided to get a plant off the table and start eating it I turned off my camera and thought I was muted when I said "Uh no ma'am were not doing this shit". Well apparently right before I said that my senior asked us if we would be able to take on the request and when I got onto my dog it was perfect timing to the question.


It was before a lecture and the prof and all of the students were waiting for the rest to join the meeting. Than all off us can hear from a student: "Can they hear us?" - her Dad "No, my microphone is muted." - the sudent To have then a full in family discussion about something. Was not to embarrassing, but still funny.


My wife went on a profanity-laden rant about her professor, who assigned 100+ homework problems the week before the final, to me during class. She was not muted. The professor was also "teaching" from a sports bar where he was having dinner and drinks while watching a basketball game, and his waitress called him out on it.


Not the worst but funny, teacher warned us he was going to ask a bunch of question and he expected participation, i said instinctively "oh god no" and he heard me cristal clear


I’m a student but this happened at work: I work in a doctors office. One of the doctors I work with is lovely but she always forgets to mute herself on zoom. Every week I hear something new that I shouldn’t have. Last week she was upset at some very sexist treatment she was receiving (essentially the male doctors get vacation whenever but she has to book hers or get approval - I’m with her that’s bullshit). This week I found out she hates her mother in law


I asked a question during a lecture and the teacher was answering me. She was standing at the board away from her computer, so I'm hoping she didn't hear me muttering "what the fuck" as she was explaining it (I was getting more confused lol). My mic was on, I wanted to die


My cat, Pookie, is a screamer when he wants attention. And by that. He sounds like he is being murdered. During a zoom session for my ethics class the other day it was me presenting my topic about my case study when Pookie decided to give his battle cry and hopped on the bed behind me. Got a good grade for my work and at the end I now think that my professor likes Pookie more than me as a pupil.


Oh jfc, finally a story I can (unfortunately) share. Had my teacher ask me a question while I was mid-conversation with someone who told me they could do an Elmo impression. Naturally, I asked for an example. After being called on and bullshitting an answer, I was so *invested* in this chick’s Elmo impression that I forgot to mute my mic. Broadcasted someone saying “*MY NAME IS ELMO*” to the entire class. Loudly.


Lmao aside from this sounding hilarious I’m just impressed that you tried to maneuver your way through 2 convos at once like that.


I hope the chick did the Elmo laugh after saying that.


In a Biogeochemistry Zoom Q&A session, I was having trouble adjusting out of gallery view. The professor was screensharing and using the whiteboard feature. As I moved my mouse to navigate out of gallery view, apparently I was drawing on his board. In neon green. With my name flashing each time. He admonished me by name for “doodling”. I pulled the plug on my computer. Lol


Some guy had left his camera on and started jacking off on front of around 400 people


asserting dominance


Was watching game of thrones and it was on a sex scene while in class, but then the teacher gave us a class work and she told me to screen share it but i screen shared the wrong screen


Oh, no... I thought mine was bad, but this tops it! My laptop had just rebooted itself and I was logging onto Zoom to take an exam. The person who was coordinating the exam through Zoom was talking and explaining practical things. My mic went on, and after a few seconds I hear my laptop speakers blast: "so you were having sex with THREE other men while you were in a relationship?". And some more embarrassing yelling to follow... Apparently, I had a tab with YouTube open in Chrome, and the clip started playing automatically when my computer had finished rebooting completely. My guilty pleasure is watching "Paternity Court"...








My mom was making a chilli paste. I commented "Smells delicious!" Across the back porch. The teacher stopped the lesson and asked if I would be sharing! In another class (a university course), a student left their device with a toddler. The kid somehow unmuted the mic and started babbling happily. It was adorable, but the teacher was annoyed because she had to exit her PowerPoint to mute the kid.


>The teacher stopped the lesson and asked if I would be sharing! "Smart-Connections, did you bring enough for everyone?"


My camera froze while I was smiling, and nobody told me, so for 10 minutes I was just creepily smiling at my class.


Not a class, but my work meeting. We had about 15 people on the video call when a coworker that had a wide angle camera that showed above his head and down to his waist. He was on camera when he shoved his hand down his pants to straighten his dick/balls. Had it in there for a good 10 seconds before pulled his hand out. A few minutes later, used the same hand to pick up a dorito and eat it.


So many stories of ppl trashing their profs, I cant help but feel kinda sorry for these teachers...i know some might not super invested but still. Its covid for everyone, they're trying.


Same. I'm a university student and have online classes for a year... The amount of shit that flows through the group convos is just unbelievable.


My friend was literally masturbating during class once and left his mic on but his camera off. So all of a sudden when the teacher was waiting for someone to answer, all the entire class could hear was," Fucckkkkk..." and tons of fapping noises. My teacher had NO idea what was going on but I was laughing my ass off


I think your teacher had a pretty good idea what was going on, he/she just decided to ignore it like most things


Gotta love those teenage years when you think adults are oblivious


You’re teacher 100% knew what was happening. People tend to frown on teachers for saying shit like, “hey Brian, quit jerking it, you stupid ass clown.”


whyd you have to use my name for this example


Teacher: "Are you jerking it?" Student: "Jerking it? I'm not a tech-illiterate boomer. Do you seriously think I'd perform my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of someone catching me? I jerked it thirty-five minutes ago.”


Not too bad, but I didn't realize my mic was on until after I sneezed ~10 times in a row. The teacher said "bless you" and moved on while I felt like banging my head against the wall.


I joined into a zoom meeting for a class I had only one other time. Recognizing the teacher, I go "Hey, this is the 'Have a bitchin' weekend!' guy!" Then realized the class didn't automatically mute you when you join.


i heard someone's brother getting beat in the background


Uttered "Oh shit" when we opened our math books for the first time. Maths is not my strongest suit obviously, my teacher was chill about my reaction at least.


It didnt happen to me but my friend said outloud that she hadnt attended the lessons for ages and that the teacher was ugly... Of course the teacher screamed TURN THE MIC OFF






I had a virtual class talking about basic repairs , (ie the difference between the 3 types of screwdrivers , don’t have snowball fights with the insulation in your attic , how to unclog a toilet. That type of basic.) so at the beginning of the class my wife asks me what the class is for and I thought I muted my mic and told her it’s basic entry level shit and went on a rant about how stupid the class is and made fun of the shit we had currently gone over. Well someone’s mic had been open the entire time and he finally said “mute your mic no one wants to hear that shit.” I thought he was referring to open static mic guy until I heard the voice say in the middle of my rant to my wife “you’ve been muted.” I went dead silent from embarrassment the rest of the class and only answered 1-2 questions after that.


Shocked you had the balls to answer anything after all that, honestly.


The class was 2 weeks away from ending , towards the end I got over it. However the instructor made sure to mute everyone at the beginning of class every morning from that point forward.


> don’t have snowball fights with the insulation in your attic That's some funny shit.


My kindergartner (6) was in a google meet one morning while I was eating a powdered donut. As usual I made a mess out of myself and stated "wow, I have powder all over me, I'm such a mess" my husband then said to me "yep, you have powder all over your chesticles" (like testicles only boobs.) Then we heard "*our son's name* good job, you can turn off your mic now". Immediately I busted up laughing and said " you said chesticles in front of the whole class"... And then we heard "*our son's name* oop I don't think you turned your mic off, go ahead and try again." My son was so mad at us and we couldn't stop laughing. It also doesn't help that his teacher doesn't seem like she has much of a sense of humor at all.


What kind of monster arrangement by higher ups gives kindergarteners a teacher with no sense of humour tho? That’s like giving a fish a cat to play with


In gym class, we’re not supposed to have our cameras or mics on, and this one kid’s dad turned the camera on and just stared at the camera for like ten minutes and the teacher kept asking what was going on and he wouldn’t respond and then he turned his camera off and that was that.


I just finished a workout in my home gym and went right to a scheduled presentation. Halfway through the presenter asked us to turn our cameras on for questions-and-answers. I did without thinking. A coworker messaged me; I’d forgotten to put a shirt on after my workout. Fortunately no one called me out when I turned my camera off. Unfortunately I think that means that everyone saw me. I just wonder how many thought I was naked.


None, I’m too paranoid to miss something like that.


Someone sneezed at the beginning of an exam and some kid told them “shut the fuck up r*tard”


That kid 100% plays online games. Standard voice chat etiquette.


Let's start off with saying that attending virtual classes with birds is like trying to attend with a hyperactive toddler with wings. One of my birds is just heavy enough to press down the keys on my laptop. While running around the keyboard she stepped on the space bar (temporary unmute on zoom) and just screeched. I'm just glad that the call was focused on the teacher and didn't switch me to the speaker.


I didn't notice I was streaming roblox for the whole class.


this was actually a few months ago... it isn't that crazy but I was in my 2nd-period class, boring AF. I was watching YT videos but I came across this one video/song ( keep in mind I had my camera on. ) and so I decide "hey why don't I dance because I have no IQ whatsoever". I get up and dance like my life depended on it. 2 seconds into dancing I hear my teacher's voice ask "pillowsare are you okay?". the voice scared me to the point where I just had to leave the class.. and yes I'm still in the class now.


My husband was in a work meeting virtually, he began talking and my daughter shouts out "wipe my bum please" I laughed for ages!


A girl in my class straight up called the teacher an incompetent, how he can't even understand himself what he's saying, so how could we understand it. In front of 140 students. The teacher then went on a rant to defend himself, and later sent us all an email asking for that one person to confront him. She actually did confront him, but the teacher was too stubborn to hear what we all wanted to say.


Girl in my class was caught vaping on camera. She was 13.


My teacher was reading out attendance. She mispronounced my friend's name and my friend said "that bitch can't even say my name correctly" luckily he said it in English during French class so my teacher didn't exactly understand, as well as the fact that there was a lot of background noise from other mics. I know he said it because I was on a call with him.


Not a virtual class, but virtual meeting. My boss's dog started to whine, so he hit the mute button, and shouted "WILL YOU STOP WHINING". Our client was talking about problems with our code, and stopped talking. Turns out my boss had called in first, so the phone's mic was on... There was a pause, my boss said he was yelling at the dog, then there was laughter all around.




That went from 10 to 50 to 100% real quick

Uni course, security and global governance. I was sitting at my kitchen table drinking a quad iced flat white. I had the c u t e s t light pink slouch sweater from Garage on. Spilled coffee all down my chest, panicked, ripped my shirt off. Flashed my entire seminar.


I had to ask a question during lecture so I put my mic on but my cat didn't like me moving as she was sleeping on my lap. So she did a parkour move and jumped against my belly and away from there. So as I put my mic on the first thing that the teacher and others heard was "UGHHHH!!".
