Woman leaves screen share on while browsing the web in ‘most embarrassing work story’

A woman shared one of her most cringeworthy work moments. Now, people are sharing their own.  

We’ve all had mortifying moments on the job before. Some of us have had Freudian slips at the wrong time during a presentation or have gotten caught up in office gossip. But for the TikToker @nitetoast, technology was her Achilles’ heel. After spacing out during a meeting one time, she forgot to turn off her screen sharing function. 

“At my first corporate job, I zoned out while screen sharing and slowly scrolled through the ENTIRE Brittany Murphy Wikipedia page, and no one on my team told me until after the meeting,” she explained in the video caption

“TBH, this isn’t even my most embarrassing work story,” she added in the comment section

The hilarious admission prompted TikTokers to share their own real-life examples of similar work blunders. 

“Once I needed to import an order file into our sales server, and I accidentally uploaded a GIF of Kris Jenner that I’d had on my desktop instead,” a user said

“OMG. I did the same thing, but I was deep into Michael Jackson still being alive conspiracy theories,” another wrote

“One time, my engineer started looking up SpongeBob video clips on YouTube while he was still screen sharing in front of our client, and it was adorable,” someone commented
