Au fur et à mesure que le COVID-19 s’est répandu dans le monde, les entreprises ont prudemment fermé leurs bureaux et déplacé des millions d’employés des bureaux d’entreprise vers leurs canapés domestiques. Nombre d’entre nous sont mis en quarantaine dans des espaces trop petits, souvent avec nos enfants, en sautant sur les réunions Zoom comme si tout était normal. Et c’est un peu le cas, jusqu’à ce que votre enfant entre inévitablement dans la pièce, coupant votre patron en plein milieu de la phrase, en criant : « Caca !
La culture du travail devra s’adapter à la nouvelle normalité, dans laquelle les tout-petits et les chiens flatulents sont nos collègues. C’est inévitable. Mais d’ici là, voici quelques-uns des pires échecs du travail à domicile que nous ayons connus la semaine dernière. Ils prouvent que, aussi dure qu’ait été votre expérience de travail à domicile, elle aurait pu être bien pire.
Whole house WFH day 1 report: I whispered “I LOVE YOU” loudly into what turned out to be my spouse’s active meeting headset mic. 🏆

Strange new WFH universe pillow talk is your partner saying "I agree with what you were saying in that meeting this afternoon"

Day 3 of WFH and my family started screaming while I was in a meeting and my coworker remarked: "Now I understand why you prefer to go into the office everyday."

Pro-tip: if you and your husband are both working from home, check to see if he's on a four-way video call BEFORE running past the office naked to get a towel from the linen closet. #RealStory #COVID19 #WFH https://t.co/axghUWjvs2

The people on this conference call don’t know, but I BARELY muted my micrphone before my dog did something I can only describe as a yell barf.

First day of working from home is going great. On a video call meeting with my 2 girl teammates and my brother walks into the room with only his boxers on. Happy WFH!😂

I'm in a WFH meeting and my Google Home just answered a question someone on the video call asked, unprompted.
I nearly jumped out of my skin. pic.twitter.com/Z5Bv4coG3u

– join meeting
– unmute to speak
– washing machine starts spinning
– hurriedly get up to escape the noise
– not realise charger is plugged in
– proceed to loudly knock pint of water + cup of coffee all over *everything*
– …continue speaking calmly as if nothing happened

Every WFH meeting so far:
"I'm sorry, you go…" "no, sorry I-" "Well what I was sayi-" "I'm sorry, were you saying something?" "Go ahead, no sorry, you go…"
*5 voices speak at once*
*suddenly no one speaks*

This AM, WFH and prepping for 5 meetings:
Me: I don't have to put make-up on! Camera's pretty blurry, no one's gonna see this nose zit.
Coworker: There's something stuck to your nose. Is it food?
Me: Yes, it's a zit, let's move on.

If you do WFH and have a Skype meeting, always consider if the 'art' on the wall is:
A) In shot
B) Appropriate pic.twitter.com/CqRAvCV4AF

WFH Update: We don’t really have desk/office chairs so I’ve been using this rickety folding chair, which just gave out. I tumbled cartoonishly to the floor. Thankfully, this was just prior to my morning Zoom meeting.

The subject of every WFH Zoom meeting is actually "oh so that's where you live."

WFH diary, day 1:
🔋 Power went out during recording
🚧 Contruction workers are extra loud today
🍌 Daughter walked in on a meeting singing “I like banaaaaanas” at the top of her lungs
— Howard Pinsky (@Pinsky) March 13, 2020
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!
