If you're playing multiplayer games, you're probably using voice chat. Voice chat is a devil's job for many reasons, but it's worse if you forget to turn it off when you're done.
I was playing The Darwin Project yesterday, an outbreak of war in which voice chat played a major role in the game's tone and tone strategy. I died, and while investigating the survivors to watch, I found someone who didn't seem to know, or maybe didn't care, to leave the voice chat open. I look up to them and speak to someone in the room about a friend who was evicted their job. I couldn't contact them, so I couldn't warn them that any other viewer or any other player close to them in the match could hear the details of their friend's bad day. It was amazing, but then again, who doesn't love gossip?
I always forget if my voice chat is open or not when I'm playing games. This leads me to call out colleagues who can hear me or – more often – force people to listen to me and cry until someone arrives to remind me to be quiet. I tend to forget to tie into Discord's voice chat when I'm done with it. More than one friend texted me to tell me they could hear me cooking or preparing to sleep when we finished playing games. I talk to myself often, and while I can avoid saying anything shy in voice chat, it sounds like a matter of time.
Ever forget your mic was turned on, or neglected to turn it off? I'm sure you have some relevant stories for broth to share.
