A few days ago a “Call Phone” button showed up in my chat bar in gmail. At lunch today, Zach and I were discussing how we disliked some of the recent changes gmail has made. He was asking about the recent “call phone” button that showed up a few days ago in the chat bar. I had my work phone sitting next to me so I thought, I’ll give it a try.
I pushed “call phone,” dialed in the number and waited, and waited, and waited. I was in the process of stating, “Well, this obviously doesn’t work very well, it’s not even ringing”…..when my boss answered. I went silent. Panicked. And hung up. Whoops!
I’m sure she is wondering who called her, she might have tried to call back and got my google voice account. I’m a little too embarrassed to look into it further. Guess I call my boss more than I call myself….and guess I probably shouldn’t be playing with new gmail features when I should be working. But it did give Zach and I a little laugh.
