After Cara shared pictures of her husband’s gags on LinkedIn, they immediately went viral. “He has always loved wearing ridiculous things in public to embarrass me,” Cara told. “So when I converted our dining room into an office where my camera faced the dining room table, he saw a virtual opportunity to embarrass me during the pandemic.”
At first, Cara’s husband just wore things he already owned, for example, his cowboy hat, hunting gear, and Hawaiian shirts. But things quickly began to escalate. “Friends started mailing him Halloween costumes. I’m told that more costumes are in transit!” the woman said.
Not only Cara’s LinkedIn connections adored her husband’s antics. “My colleagues love this. It’s so strange to see a team of people laughing while you’re presenting, and then realizing something ridiculous is going on behind you.”
“They almost always see him before I do,” Cara said. “It has definitely helped people remember to stop and laugh during these times.”
One could argue that the pandemic has taught us a lot about working from home. A poll from early in the coronavirus outbreak suggests a strong preference for remote work. Gallup found that almost 60 percent of Americans working from home would prefer to work remotely “as much as possible” after authorities lift restrictions, with 40 percent saying they preferred to return to the original workplace. The online survey of 2,276 randomly selected adults was conducted from March 14 through April 2.
Something tells me Cara’s husband might belong to the 60 percent!
