Multiple times I've joined an audio-only Microsoft Teams meeting (on time) where people were already talking. I feel like it would be rude to talk over them to say "hello", like it's going to interrupt the conversation.
Unfortunately, I believe it's also rude to not say hello.
I also think people talking without taking the time to say hello / present everyone in the meeting are somewhat rude, because they are creating this uncomfortable situation.
So, I feel I have no other choice than to wait until I have something to contribute before saying hello / presenting myself. When this happens, I feel I'm not really in the meeting.
Is it considered rude/unprofessional to act like this? What's the proper etiquette?
Should a manager take time to let everyone say hello and present themselves?
