Almond, are you there?

> Sure, of course.

Oh ok, it said you were on mute.

> I was, I always go on mute if I'm not talking to help cut down on background noise **hint hint**

That's very confusing for the rest of us, can you leave your mic on please?

> Right... Okay.

    Ha, peasant. Not using a physical mute switch or a global mute hotkey that doesn't show in software? /s

    In all seriousness, the things mentioned would've prevented that situation.

    Come live with an Indian household so they can hear cookwares clanging together or live with a Filipino family and let the dogs bark senseless.

    Or maybe live with me so they can hear all the loud sex I'm not having. *Gloomy Sunday plays*

    I have a switched-audio setup on my laptop for Zoom shit. If they ask me to please not mute, I just reach over and plug the headphone jack into the mic jack. This not only loops back, but adds static as my laptop's audio system can be overloaded if I walk within 30 feet of a staticky blanket.

    We have strong mic etiquette at my work. If you've got background noise and you're not talking you'll hear about it and probably get muted. Which is annoying because I use a physical mute and often times people will mute me if someone else is making noise and then I'll try to talk later on but I won't realise I'm muted because I'm muted in software unbeknownst to me

    @kescherRant I did after, but damn, I shouldn't have to resort to that...
