Caught off guard by surprise video call — I'm so ashamed and embarrassed
While I'm usually the type to get dressed up while working from home, today was one of those days. I didn't have any meetings, so I ended up logging on from bed in my sweatpants.
My boss then told me he needed to speak with me immediately to go over something on a pressing assignment. He said he'd just call me to talk it through, but he ended up sending a Zoom link to join immediately. He alluded to the fact that I hadn't turned my video on, so I felt compelled to do so — and I spent the call in my pj top with major bed head.
I'm so embarrassed my boss saw me like that. I looked totally unprofessional and unprepared even though I knew I was getting my work done. Should I address it at all? I'm really worried this is going to affect how he sees me as an employee.
