Give me a virtual high-five if you also think that by the time coronavirus bids us adieu, aur kuch hona ho, the world will definitely become more tech-savvy, all thanks to the innumerable hours being spent on online classes, zoom calls, webinars and virtual meetings.
But working and studying from home also has its own perks and perils. The perk is that there’s no one to throw you out of the class when you doze off like this young fellow.
A Twitter user recently shared a picture of her kindergartner on a 40-minute video call with his teacher and it’s safe to say, its all of us 15-minutes into the call.

However, hours later, the user also shared another picture of the lad from the same day. Look, how happy he is while sharing his stuffed animal during ‘show and tell’.
I've gotta say, teachers are trying their best! For balance, here's another pic from the same day. My Kindergartner happily sharing his stuffed animal during show and tell. 💙 pic.twitter.com/pOW69nwJqX

Well, people resonated with the little boy’s emotions. Here’s how they reacted:
Also me after my 40 min zoom calls. And I’m a whole entire adult! Lol

Anything more than 10-15 minutes without a break or activity seems too much

Lol. My kid would walk away from circle time in real life kindergarten 🤣No way he would be able to do these video calls.

Can relate to this easily because we have one 4yo at home who acts almost similarly during her 60-minute three days a week class.

If this is me in a 40 minute Teams meeting with my colleagues then him and Teddy have no chance. pic.twitter.com/rOniKqEAJX

Not just school. I’m 39 and I lose concentration in any meeting/presentation that goes over an hour unless I’m really interested/invested in whatever’s being covered. Doesn’t help that my feelings show on my face big time 😅 I have been this 5 year old on the inside many times!

I’m 27 and in grad school (clinical psychology of all things) and I have such a hard time with this. I’m also conducting therapy via video chat and being on camera sitting in one spot all day is exhausting
