Tonight’s training topic was pretty heavy. We talked about Suicide Intervention.
I was all prepared to come away from training feeling emotionally hit by a truck. I had a self care plan in place, and I even texted it to Cameron right before training started.
Then, about halfway through the training, it happened.
So this training is done online. From day 1 I’ve grumbled about the other attendees who don’t know how to mute themselves. Coughs, sneezes, “Ow!”, cats meowing, papers rustling… and so on. I was guilty once, too, of “psst”ing the cat over the mic. To be fair though, I’d just plugged my headset in and the sound went straight to the headset, so I assumed the mic did too. The headset mic was muted… but of course I was set to my computer’s mic.
There was a slight buzzing sound.
What was that?
Maybe 20 seconds later, again, a little louder.
Is somebody snoring?
Oh. My. God. Somebody is SNORING!
