Real Moments: The Conference Call We All Have and Pretend We Don’t

Category : Real Moments November 20, 2014

It’s happened to us all:

  • We get talked over, distorted, or interrupted by someone’s barking dog
  • We multi-task like a champ
  • We forget to un-mute ourselves (or worse, forget to mute ourselves)
  • We discover a “lurker” late in the game
  • We pretend to lose a connection when we have something better to do.

That’s right: the conference call.

Today’s Real Moment: Sketch comedians Tripp and Tyler’s conference call video spoof. I dare you not to laugh out loud as your everyday experiences come to life and you, too wonder … why didn’t we just send an email?
