4# Interrupting cat
DO NOT APOLOGISE WHEN YOUR PETS JUMP INTO THE FRAME ON ZOOM CALLS. Was just in a conference with the CEOs of a major US org and Muffin jumped on my lap and the whole conversation stopped, IS THAT A CAT, SHOW ME THE CAT!— Christopher Ruz #TheRaggedBlade out now! (@ruzkin) 26 March 2020
Everyone needs cats in these trying times.

First class of the day, Professor asks us to unmute our Mic's to make the classroom setting on zoom more "real". Now listening to lecture plus 2 people breathing heavily and 1 munching on chips loudly into the mic #COVID19 #Virtual #ZoomUniversity #zoomfail— John Kemper (@jtkemper_) 30 March 2020
7# Public viewing
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— Christina Kerby (@ChristinaKerby) 13 March 2020

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.
