I think my biggest WFH fail was a series of events when teaching my class.
10 minutes before class my PC which is an old gaming PC started to get buggy so I restarted it. I use my PC for screen sharing as I have 3 monitors. It decided to install an update that was not in the notifications upon restarting. No big deal I said I’ll just wait for it. The install decided to freeze and I had to restart again.
I started class and started to stall when my mouse died. The screen reading of 90% went down to 5% then to 0% in a matter of seconds.
At this point my bluetooth headphones warned me of a low battery. I had apparently not plugged it in the entire way the morning of and they never charged.
I ended up continuing class with just my laptop screen and was in the middle of explaining a topic and getting through at least 5 minutes of material until I realized that I had been frozen due to Zoom/internet issues.
It was a tank of a day and when I came back most of my students were still there! They were smiling and although it was probably my biggest fail of the year it was a somewhat smooth class period and the students showed a great deal of empathy which I was extremely thankful for!
