Just a Funny Story
It was like a scene from a movie. But I digress. In times such as these, we could all use a good laugh. I hope this brings a smile.
I have been working with a very refined, lovely young couple who are looking for their first home in Boca Raton. We have emailed, texted and spoken on the phone many times. Lots to explain to first-time homebuyers.
They asked me if I would do a Zoom meeting. Absolutely. Why not? So we arranged for the meeting at 5:30 PM one day last week.
I told Richard I would be in a Zoom meeting. You don't know Richard, but he has zero interest in computers. He had not a clue what I was talking about and never questioned it.
Hold on - I'm getting to the story! Now, have you seen the movie It's Complicated? There is this one scene in the movie with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.
About an hour into the meeting, Richard strolls into my office in his underwear, and I see him on camera. I was screaming, 'Get out of here. Get out! You're on camera! Out! Out! Out!'
This couple was hysterical. They were laughing. I was mortified and near died!
Clueless, Richard looked at my computer and didn't see anyone (he later told me.) That's because I don't have a camera on my computer! I was on my iPad. Hello!
Thankfully, they could only see him from the chest up. He was very nonchalant about the whole thing. This couple was very understanding saying this is how it is with everyone working from home. Yeah, but how many times do you see a half naked man stroll across your screen?! Yikes!
If you haven't seen the movie, here is the clip. It never went this far (thankfully), but it reminded me of this scene from the movie. I felt like I was in the movie. You just can't make this stuff up.
And that, my friends, is what working from home is all about!
