Don't know how many of you have seen this. I saw it months ago, but watched it again today. It kills me! WebEx is like half my life so it's too relatable.

The scene with Tyler standing outside talking to a wall had me cracking up. If you guys think WebEx is bad try GoToMeeting.

One thing missing is when someone puts the call on hold, so that everyone else listens to their hold music.

God ****ing damn it that's annoying. My key account manager in Detroit has done it several times. Only had to tell him like 3 times not to do that. MUTE NOT HOLD! Another guy from Turkey hangs up and for some reason the phone just beeps for like 3 minutes. What the ****?

The absolute best is when somebody is on the road and refuses to mute his phone, so we all get to listen to the sound of a car driving down the freeway.

My favorite is the manager who's just got to use his new fancy $5 Bluetooth headset that either drops every other word or picks up his mouth breathing.
or
There is always the one asshat who uses the largest conference room in their building but sits on the Opposite end of the football field long table from the microphone. So it sounds like he's whispering the whole damn call.
So you turn it up to hear him and then asshat with the overmodulated headset chimes in and blows your ear drums out.
