We all knew the moment the world began implementing work-from-home strategies in the age of coronavirus, that it was only a matter of time before a whole bunch of viral Zoom cock-ups and controversies headed our way.
One thing I didn’t expect though was for thieves to break into the home of a schoolgirl in the middle of her online class and rob her in front of her shocked classmates:
Wild stuff. Here’s a ‘rough translation’ of what was said thanks to Tabasco611 on Reddit:
Teacher: talking about his lesson
Student 1: They are robbing the house of “girl’s name” !
Student 2: repeats “They are robbing the house of “girl’s name” !
Student 3: ” They are robbing the house of “girl’s name” !
Student 1: They are robbing the house of “girl’s name”!
Student 2: They are robbing the house of “girl’s name”!
Student 4: call the police!
Teacher: Call Call!
Student 5: They are robbing?
Multiple Students: yes!
Student 6: call quickly!
Teacher: I don’t know where her house is!
Student 7: It’s by the “name of neighborhood”
Student 3: Does anyone have her parents phone number?
Student 7: I have her moms phone number
multiple students: Call Call quickly!
Good news in the end though according to MailOnline – the thieves were arrested shortly after the home invasion and the girl got her computer back. All’s well that ends well eh? Well aside from the trauma of being robbed in your own home as your helpless classmates look on from their laptops.
As for the thieves, probably not a great idea to go around breaking into houses during peak Zoom hours. Chances are you’ll have a whole bunch of witnesses watching and more police available to arrest you seeing as everyone’s indoors right now. Get with the times people!
