#ThrowbackThursday: A Post About Conference Calls

I love the Facebook memories feature. It shows me items I posted on “this day in Facebook history” and most of the time, it makes me smile! Today, I saw a video I shared two years ago that really hit close to home. If you haven’t seen it yet, and you frequently participate in conference calls at work, take a few minutes and watch:

The producers of this video decided to re-enact every conference call ever made as if it were in real life. And it’s hilarious! In this day and age, at a time when people can work from home, on a train or even at their kid’s soccer game, conference calls are a necessary evil. They are nearly always awkward and challenging. I have many a personal story of my own when it comes to them. I’ve experienced times when suddenly everyone sounded like aliens, to times when no one could get a word in edgewise.

Since conference calls generally happen for work, there really isn’t a time when wine can accompany the meeting. But I certainly think about wine sometimes, especially during a particularly rough call! All kidding aside, enjoy the video and remember: at the end of the work day is a glass or a bottle of wine waiting for you to come home! Cheers!
