WATCH: Woman complaining about work caught and called out by coworker

We've been in lockdown for more than 365 days and some people still can't figure out Zoom.

As a wise woman once said: "Everyone makes mistakes, everyone has those days."

While we love reciting our 'Hannah Montana' mantras, we also love having a good laugh.

And we enjoy it much more when we can laugh with others, instead of at them.

Now it's important to note that the pandemic has now been a part of our lives for more than a year and that means months and months of Zoom calls and Microsoft teams meetings. 

Just to clarify - we are not here to shame anyone!

Sometimes you forget to turn your camera off or change your background to something more suitable for a work meeting, but the most common struggle that we all still experience no matter how Zoom call efficient you are is the mute button.

Even after months of muting and unmuting, people are still getting it messed up and are thus providing us with hilarious online content.

This brings us to Alexandra Ceberio, known on TikTok as @alllyvert.

Alex recently got a new sales job and had been working for only two days when the Zoom incident took place.

She was on a Zoom call with her new coworkers and they were having a virtual training session when she wanted to take a quick break and rant to her friends.

While on the call, she recorded the video explaining that she got dressed up for the call, got herself camera-ready, only for everyone on the call to have their cameras off.

While talking about her "frizzy gym hair" and just as she was about to say what shirt she was wearing, you can hear a voice pipe up and it says, "Hey guys, I can hear you, just so you're aware."

Luckily, she said that there was no one important on the call but she was still extremely embarrassed. Apparently, nobody has addressed the moment but she'll mention it when she feels more comfortable with her new colleagues.

Alexandra has learnt a valuable lesson, like the many others who have come before her and who will inevitably come after, and has always double-checked her mic and camera settings when on a call.
