In this time of the COVID-19 alert level 4 lockdown many of us are working from home, which means meetings are looking a little different than they used to. Things like Google hangouts and Zoom have become the norm. 

But one US uni student has taught us all a valuable lesson in this technological age - always remember to check if your camera is on before going to the toilet. 

In a video which has now gone viral on social media, a young woman named Jennifer obviously needed to wee during her online class. 

Instead of waiting, Jennifer can be seen walking through her home before setting her laptop down on the floor in her bathroom.

As the rest of the class watches in disbelief, she sits down on the toilet.

When she realises the class is watching, she quickly turns the computer to the wall, and her fellow students attempt to remedy the situation. 

"I saw nothing," one claimed, while another said, "poor Jennifer". 

The clip has been viewed over 7 million times and the hashtag '#PoorJennifer' is trending on Twitter. 

"I'm cringing," commented one person. 

"Literally me," wrote another person, while another called it, "my worst fear".

Others took to Twitter to share their own feelings. 

"Poor Jennifer is giving me such second-hand embarrassment I can't even laugh. I'm mortified for her," tweeted one person. 

"I honestly hope poor Jennifer knows she is a goddamn national treasure for providing us all with such laughter in the middle of a global pandemic," wrote another. 

Either way, it's a lesson to us all - always check your tech before going to the bathroom. Or maybe just wait until the meeting is over.
