Boss Accidentally Turns Herself Into A Potato During Video Chat Meeting

If we can take one thing from this whole pandemic situation, it's that we're pretty bloody adaptable, with many of us now changing our working lives to adhere to the government's social distancing rules.

Of course - this comes with certain complications, like now having to do meetings on video chat instead of in real life.

One boss couldn't quite get the hang of the technology behind it, and turned herself into a potato for the entirety of one meeting, thanks to a sneaky Snapchat filter that just wouldn't leave her be.

Thankfully, one of her employees screenshot it and put it on Twitter for us all to enjoy. How they managed to keep it together, we will never know.


The Twitter user, Rach, shared the incredible photo, writing: "My boss turned herself into a potato on our Microsoft teams meeting and can't figure out how to turn the setting off, so she was just stuck like this the entire meeting."

Sharing a photo of your boss on Twitter making a bit of a tit of themselves is dodgy territory, but luckily for Rach, her manager took it all in her stride and owned up to being the #potatoboss.


What an absolute queen.

People are suitable made up with the whole thing - and let's be honest, we need to grab all the happiness we can in these testing times. They took to Twitter to share their joy:

Another replied: "Your potato face made me laugh in a way I haven't laughed in what feels like a very long time. Thank you!"


Someone else commented: "You are my hero. I needed this laugh badly tonight. Thank you!"

A third added: "You have lifted the spirits of thousands today. Even those sworn off carbs. Viva la spud!"

Viva la spud, indeed.
