Woman mortified after colleagues overhear her RANTING about work during Zoom call
A woman has captured the mortifying moment her colleagues overheard her ranting about work to friends over a Zoom call.
Alexandra Ceberio, 24, from New York, US, was on a work break when she started recording herself on her phone – complaining to friends about working from home.
The mortified woman had recently started a new sales job.
She was looking at her laptop to make sure she was camera ready for her Zoom meeting – but didn't realise her microphone was switched on.
Alexandra accidentally broadcast the expletive-laden rant to her colleagues – and was left mortified when one of them alerted her to the blunder.
On camera, she says: "My work from home fit today, some f***ing bulls***, 'cause I got ready and everyone has their cameras off.
"I got this frizzy a** gym hair from yesterday, this shirt is from..."
One of her colleagues then cuts her short and interrupts, saying: “Hey guys, I can hear you, just so you're aware.”
Alexandra’s face freezes in shock.
“I always send my friends funny Snapchats,” she told Jam Press.
“I was doing a ‘fit check’ every day for the first week of my new job. We were on a break, so I decided to record.
"The person on the other side was the instructor for the training course I was doing that day.
"Luckily, my boss or no one important from my company was on the call, but I was still so embarrassed.
“As you can see, I literally froze when I realised they could hear me.
"I had forgotten everything I had just said at that moment.
“No one at work has said anything, but I would not be surprised. I want to bring it up one day once I am more comfortable there."
Alexandra uploaded the video on her TikTok page on 13 July, and the post has garnered more than 960,800 views and 176,600 likes.
One person commented: “Omfg! I passed out FOR YOU! I mean I would have fainted!”
“My biggest fear in the world,” another user agreed.
Someone else said: “My jaw dropped I would quit and move lol.” [sic]
“I would have logged off and never looked back,” another user added.
“Please tell me you made it to your third day of work,” someone else said.
Alexandra added: “I think it's hilarious so many people have seen this and want to know more, and that it even went viral.
“The number of likes and views was not what I was expecting.
“My friends think the attention I am getting is hilarious, they update me on stuff they see on social media before I do.”
Despite the blunder, Alexandra is still employed.
In a follow-up video, she jokingly showed her followers that she had made sure her next Zoom call was on mute with the camera off.
