Man dresses up in ridiculous costumes to embarrass his wife on Zoom calls

Readers Lounge By Mirror

If you haven't worked from home before lockdown, you may be finding the transition pretty challenging.

Like many others, Cara Fields and her husband Matt from Indiana have been adapting to their new work-life balance - home-schooling their children and staying on top of their 9 to 5 jobs.

But, Cara explained to Bored Panda that in order to give her - and her colleagues - a much needed laugh in these tough times, Matt started appearing in her Zoom conference calls dressed up in silly costumes.

She says he's always loved embarrassing her in public, so this was the obvious next step.

She said: "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 started accessorising with items from his wardrobe.

A cowboy hat here, hunting gear and Hawaiian shirts there - pretty subtle overall.

But it wasn't long before things started to escalate.

She explained that their friends started sending him extravagant Halloween outfits in the post to keep up appearances - and they didn't disappoint.

One day he wore a Batman outfit and the next he was Where's Wally.

Cara started posting pictures of his outfits on LinkedIn and everyone thought it was hilarious.

One person said: "This is the best" and then suggested they "dress up as one another and change seats."

Another added: "This is wonderful and what a nice distraction right now."

A third said: "That is awesome. Funniest thing I've seen yet."

And: "That's hysterical!! Good sense of humour!"

But, it's not just her LinkedIn connections that adored what he was doing, her colleagues also enjoyed his regular appearances.

She said: "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. It has definitely helped people remember to stop and laugh during these times."

And it doesn't seem like he'll be stopping any time soon, since Cara revealed that there are more outfits in the post.?
