Woman shares TikTok of embarrassing moment with boss

An employee fell out of her chair during a Zoom meeting with the company CEO. But at least she has a sense of humour about the embarrassing moment.

Charlotte Kozinets is a sales associate for the furniture company Monograph in California. During a video call with the CEO, things took a hilarious turn. Kozinets shared the footage on TikTok, where it earned over 1.9 million views.

“Please watch my chair break while on a meeting with my CEO,” she captioned the footage.

Kozinets was in the middle of discussing her off-duty plans when her chair broke mid-sentence.

“Then I’ll probably go down to Jersey where my uncle lives and stay and hang out with him for a bit,” she said in the video call.

Kozinets creaky chair collapsed under her, then she fell to the ground and out of frame. The CEO looked totally unfazed, but Kozinets could be heard laughing hysterically. Her other co-workers on the Zoom also began to laugh as she popped back up with her glasses on crooked.

She then made sure her coworker, Carl, had recorded the shocking moment.

“Carl, are you recording this? The chair just broke,” she said.

“I desperately hope so… yeah, it’s recorded,” Carl joked back.

Another employee called the incident a “Monday surprise.” Meanwhile, TikTok users got a real kick out of Kozinets chair-turned-saboteur.

“I would’ve put in my two weeks,” one user said.

“I’ve watched this so many times, it’s so funny,” another wrote.

“It’s the little hand in the air as you fall for me,” someone joked.
