I got very excited the other day when I received notification that one of my students had added me as a Skype contact. I looked and saw that she was online the same time as me, so decided to call her up.
The call was answered and I started to chat away saying 'Hello, this is Sarah here. How are you?' and so on. But the call was dropped. I tried ringing several times but the call wasn't answered again.
The next day, my student said I gave her husband a terrible fright. He hadn't realized that she had installed Skype, so when he heard me talking to him, he thought someone was watching him through the computer.
