The rise of remote jobs, allowing more folks to work from home instead of going into the traditional office setting, has created some upside and downside for almost everyone. While workers appreciate having more autonomy over their schedules and spend less time commuting, this comes at some costs to the established methods of doing work that relies on direct collaboration and oversight. In lieu of filling conference rooms, we get emails to alert us to meetings over video calls that are almost as useless as in-person ones.

It can be difficult to go through these semi-formal video conference calls, especially when there's some "icebreaker" to introduce new team members or at the start of a cross-department project. Not being in the same physical working space seems to make these necessary (that or those who propose these activities need them to get through their monotonous days). However, TikTok user @fentifriedchicken provides some tips for those who struggle under the pressure. 

What a wonderful suggestion offered by this video! Seriously, these icebreakers should not wreck a whole meeting or cause long pauses (which might get judgy looks, let's be honest.) Most people should have a couple canned answers based on something simple or something they know other people like in the group.

Commenters provided some phenomenal answers for this stock question. "i heard someone say, “I was slimed on nickelodeon” and now that’s my go-to lie," replied Sarah. BigDinkEZ inputted, "I said I came second in a salsa competition and people lost their minds." "This is so helpful; I have a full-on anxiety attack trying to think of answers to these," admitted Nancy.
