Woman ‘died inside’ after leaving lube bottle behind her in Zoom call with boss
An embarrassed staff member was left red-faced after leaving a rather awkward item on her shelf during a Zoom call with her boss.
Nicki Faulkner, who works in HR, had forgotten about her bottle of Durex lube, which was placed right behind her head during the video chat.
The 32-year-old has said that she spent the 45-minute call "on edge", hoping nobody would notice it.
Nicki, a well-being specialist from Hackney, east London, admitted she "died inside" when she saw what she had done'
"About 15 minutes into the call I clocked the lube on the shelf behind me, it was too late to move it," she said.
"My manager would then know I'd seen it and it would draw more attention to it.
"It's one of those taboos, I died inside a little bit – it was the Durex massage lube.
"It was definitely obvious – what else could it be?
"She knew I was in bed., so what else would I have on the shelf behind my bed?
"Next time I'll be doing meetings from the kitchen table – bed was always going to be a bad idea."
The embarrassing mishap was only brought about after spending the weekend with her boyfriend.
She had decided to work from home, having had a "full-on" week the week prior.
And she also decided that working from her bed would be the best idea.
She added: "I took it to my boyfriend's house and he'd recently come to visit me. I left it on the side and normally I put it in the corner, but I thought I'd just leave it there – I didn't call anyone from bed for the rest of the day."
Although she hoped her boss wouldn't notice, she did decide to post about it on social media the next day.
Her friends, she claimed, all thought it was "hilarious".
