It’s a reality for any non-child-bearing person, having to feign interest in another human’s offspring and being just as amazed as the parent is at their blob’s ability to fit its entire foot into its mouth.
While suffering through photos and home videos is one thing, as one woman is today finding out, suffering through a Zoom call with a child is a whole new kettle of fish.
Zoe Krazt explains to The Advocate that she had to sit through an entire meeting with her colleague’s toddler smashing its tiny little hands into the keyboard or attempting to give its mum a haircut with its bare hands.
“What are you supposed to say? She goes ‘Ooo do you want to say hello to Hilary? Hilary, come here, come say hi to mummies colleague Zoe’”
“Then you’ve got to pretend to be excited to meet the little thing, it’s all a bit much.”
“And usually most people get how inappropriate it is to have their kid derail an important business meeting, but for some reason this woman just let it keep going”
“We’re in the middle of a global pandemic and we’re supposed to be coming up with supply chain solutions for Aussie doctors – how is watching Hilary fist her own mouth going to help anyone?”
More to come.
