Having a laugh at work is what gets us through the day, but it’s probably better not to do it while your boss is watching.
However, in a video shared to TikTok by user Lexi Weber, a young woman was caught in the act making humorous content for social media.
The clip begins with Weber, who is a health care worker, facing the camera wearing purple scrubs in a medical office.
She then starts to move her head about, using the TikTok “Nose Painter” tool to create a smiley face shape on the screen.
The young hospital staff member is grinning and laughing as she creates the shape, clearly amusing herself greatly.
However, Weber isn’t actually alone in the room as we find out when the camera cuts to her boss’s perspective, who is covertly filming her from behind.
Without it being clear what Weber is doing, the second part of the video makes her look as through she is thrashing about while facing a wall.
Her manger has captioned her part of the footage, writing: “This b**ch,” alongside a laughing-face emoji.
Weber, seemingly finding being caught out amusing, captioned the video: “My manager watched me make this whole video just wait for the end lmaooo #nosepainting #fyp.”
The amusing clip, which can be watched here, has been viewed a whopping 7.7 million times since it was posted on April 19, 2020, and it has surpassed 1.9 million likes.
It was also recently reposted to Instagram meme account Pubity on September 15, where it has attracted a further 800,000 likes.
Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the funny moment and the manager’s light-hearted reaction.
One TikTok user, Lewii, wrote: “Plus the end was on timing.”
Another person, Poptoy12, added: “I almost died from seeing the end.”
