The survey also found that nearly half of the respondents said they were more concerned about their appearance during video chats than about the conversation itself, according to Quartz. Moreover, "about a third" of respondents "spent more time primping than prepping." 

Hair, face, shirt, pants. Check, check, check, lol.
