I used to spend three hours a day travelling to and from the university, and about 3 hours a day talking to people in meetings from 2 - 50 people. Now I see only one person all day, and spend 6-7 hours in my dining room.

History

About the picture(s)

Old habits die hard, and video call meetings at the university over the lockdown period were quite quickly dominated by a custom of muting your microphone input until you had something to say. It became extremely common within days to find people having to repeat themselves because they had not 'unmuted' themselves, and particular individuals are often repeat offenders, sometimes within the same meeting. I ordered this shirt from a website offering 24hour turnaround, but it took 3 weeks due to the lockdown. Luckily the problem was still endemic when it arrived.
