Picture this: you get called into a Zoom meeting with your boss and HR. You have a suspicious feeling what this call could be about…
You’ve been hearing about the possibility of layoffs. You’ve been preparing yourself emotionally for this moment. You take a few deep breaths, try to smile your way through the pain, and you log onto the Zoom call. Just when your boss says the exact words you were praying they wouldn’t say (those words being “today is your last day”), all of a sudden, you’ve been kicked out of the call.
You’re confused, upset, and angry. And then you realize the actual incompetence of the situation. Your company revoked your access so quickly that you were literally kicked out of the call mid-meeting. You would think whoever was in charge of this would have waited maybe five more minutes at the very least. Sometimes being too on top of things like that can be unprofessional too, which is exactly what happened here.
What’s even more disturbing is that the Redditor who shared this thread was not alone.
