No. Why would they be more awkward than any other call?

Man if you think Skype calls are awk then maybe think about a different career path.

When I first started they were very awkward. Especially coming from a military background. The more I had to use Skype the easier it’s gotten.

There is that awkward 5-10 seconds where the call has ended and you are trying to find the screen on which to hang up but you can still hear the other person doing the same thing

Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
