The always muters are fine, it’s the never muters that need to be rolled up in a carpet and thrown off a bridge.
As if the cannonball one isn’t the most annoying. Very dangerous too
- Asks too many questions
- Does something without asking
I feel sorry for the people who have to Deal with this.
- loud atheists
- loud theists
- A rocket scientist
- Brad Pitt
- Tries to make “how is everyone?” small talk in a video conference with multiple participants before the meeting starts in earnest
- Silently waits for all participants to join which results in a good 3-5 minutes of pre-meeting video awkwardness
Live for the silent awkwardness rbh.
Edit; that should read “tbh” but actually rbh is a thing I will use now for Really Being Honest
- People who have that whistley noise when the speak
- People who need to cough but don’t
the thing here of course is that loud atheists are angry with you, loud theists are not
would much rather be at a bus stop while someone nearby loudly declares through their amplifier that god loves me than an atheist doing the same with what they think
Loud atheists drove me to Jesus
Very kind of them
Shouldn’t be sharing a car at the moment though…
He runs Sterling Cooper now
- Has a flower in their lapel and when they invite you to sniff it you get squirted with water
- Offers you a stick of chewing gum and when you take it your finger gets trapped by a mousetrap style mechanism
- people who don’t use headphones when watching a video
- people who constantly have (shit) music spilling out of their headphones
I can’t imagine the disappointment that follows the excitement of thinking you’re going to imminently be chewing delicious gum only to end up with a sore finger
- Drives an old-timey car
- Rides an old-timey bike
People on the bus/street holding their phone somewhere between their chest and waist and shouting on a loudspeaker call can join these lot too
It’s definitely both.
Also, to the one about pre-meeting chat, as someone who types a lot of teleconferences I much, much prefer the silence - I don’t want to have to be typing 15 minutes of “Hello, Michael, how’s the family, have you been skiing this year - Oh, Michael’s not on yet, that must be Mark, hi Mark!” only for you to decide that actually, you’d like that redacted but didn’t think to say beforehand. Keep your chat pertinent, people - it’s not awkward, it’s efficient.
I’m this much fun in real life too by the way
