A SKYPE chat became a bitter argument over whose shit internet connection kept making it break.
Wayne Hayes called old friend Susan Traherne, who now lives in New Zealand, to catch up via the web-based communication service.
However a taint of resentment crept in after Skype froze several times, most notably during Traherne’s poignant description of ongoing marital problems.
Hayes said: “I can see you but I can’t hear you. I think the problem is your end.”
Traherne replied: “I can hear you but I can’t see you, everything’s fine my end, I’ve got fibre and it’s very reliable. As I recall you’ve got TalkTalk and everyone knows TalkTalk is lame as fuck.”
Hayes responded by confirmed that his internet worked perfectly well and that maybe Traherne’s fancy fibre connection wasn’t the big cool-ass thing she was making out.
Switching to Skype’s text box, Hayes wrote: “I think you need to restart your computer.”
Traherne replied: “You restart your fucking computer, penis breath.”
However experts later confirmed that the problem was actually caused by Skype itself being shit.
