As Zoom Date’s have quickly replaced the classic
‘Drinks in a pub’ we’d thought we’d help you out when it’s time to say goodbye during a Zoom meet up, but you just don’t know how.
Here are our (not) tried
and tested tips to escape a Zoom date:
1 – Flick your video on and off and pretend you have a bad connection. Pair this with mouthing words to indicate audio issues.
2 – Say you’ve heard your local supermarket is having a toilet roll delivery and you must go there immediately.
4 – Claim your battery is about to go and you are unable to charge it due to your cat chewing the power cable
5 – Say it’s your bedtime no matter what time it is
6 – Pretend someone is calling you and you must go
7 – Say it’s time for the daily Covid-19 Conference… even if it’s 9am
8 – You need to urgently go to the toilet
9 – Switch your WiFi on and off. Come back 10 minutes later with a message ’sorry WiFi cut out’ and never speak to them again…
10 – Stop moving and pretend your screen has frozen
11 – ‘I fell in the garden and I can no longer sit on my bottom for long periods at a time’ … might work?
12 – Run off shouting that there’s a fire in your home
13 – Get the cat to jump up infront of you and claim they’ve spilt coffee on the computer
