Started working at a new place a few months back, basically a PA job working with a bunch of older blokes and higher-ups at a university. Being the only person under 30 (probably the only one under 50) I quickly became the de facto “tech guy.”
Then COVID happened, and all meetings shifted online.
In one meeting one of my bosses was supposed to run a presentation but ended up showing everybody the ‘presenter mode’ of PowerPoint, showing us all the notes he made for himself. It was awkward and kind of funny. Afterward, he asked for help to fix it and I agreed. Bad move.
Cut to an hour later, he’s literally tied up in wires, switching between THREE (3) different webcams, and he’s already dropped a monitor on the floor. I’m doing my best to tell him what’s wrong but he either can’t, or won’t, understand.
After over an hour he still hadn’t fixed it. In the end, I told him to just use his laptop for future meetings and remove all additional hardware.
