This afternoon I had to go run an errand and I knew I wouldn’t make it home in time for a Zoom meeting. I did the next best thing and I parked my car in a mostly empty parking lot and joined the meeting there.

I was extra prepared and brought my wireless headset and plugged it into my phone. Zoom on a smartphone suffices unless people screen share, which then makes it a bit more difficult. Fortunately for me, my meeting had no screen sharing and lasted only fifteen minutes. I kept my camera off, so I don’t think anyone even knew I was in my car in a parking lot.

I’ve seen lots of people now partake in Zoom meetings while in a car, some even driving. I don’t recommend it but people still do it. The pandemic has allowed us to take calls almost everywhere now.
