Video calling apps like Zoom and Houseparty have become the saviours of communication but there are plenty of people out there who just shouldn't be introduced to new technology. Especially when it sees and hears everything.
We've put together a list of our favourite fails that have emerged on social media over the last week so sit back and laugh at other people's misfortunes.
When the boss turns herself into a potatoEveryone has turned into that teacher who couldn't get the TV on wheels to work.

Harsh... just harsh.
If you're going to break up with someone in the middle of a call make sure you're on mute

We can't speak for all bosses but this probably isn't advised.
Your boss doesn't want to attend cocktail hour with your fam
I made my first Zoom FAIL. I accidentally invited one of our founders to my family's cocktail hour last night. LOL we all had a good laugh but oops! #zoomfail ??— Amanda Mulay (@amandamulay) March 30, 2020
Yes the meeting is dragging on but just make sure you're on mute before complaining.
Don't complain- they can hear you

Me thinking my mic is off: “why is she still talking I thought this was over”
My teacher: “friend you might wanna mute yourself”
