Understandable but unreasonable (添削後)

"I'm sorry, but would you please stop speaking?"
I heard Someone talking to me like this while chatting with a friend of mine on Skype at an Internet cafe. There was one of the staffs standing behind my back.
"I'm afraid you're disturbing other customers here," she said apologetically.
Oh, my goodness. I knew it. I've tried to keep my voice down for a month, but it seemed to me that my effort wasn't enough for being in a public place. The Internet cafe was my only hope to use Skype. I thought there would be no problem because any customers could have free access to Skype and they have equipped microphones with every PCs to speak at. Anything there looked to be ready. I didn't anticipated that I would be thrown out of the place...
I'm in the soup now and I'm still confused a bit. I need to figure out what to do, however, for my friends who look forward to having our "English Time."

1) said this
2) while I was chatting
3) One of the staff (members) was standing behind my back.
4) every PC is equipped with a microphone.
5) It seemed to be the perfect place for me to Skype.

I see...

Thank you for your reply.

I see...Uh...Apart from the pity, you might as well look for another store or forget about it...^^;

Well, oh, yes. We've been brushing up on our English at Fukuoka Moms'. These day, a few new comers have joined us, so we're always inspired every time.
At the end of month, we're supposed to visit the English native speaker, who is from England (yeah, SHE is), and have a natter together.

Re: Oh!, my.....

How are you our there? How long has it been since we met last?
Today I attended an English workshop called another "Mom's" in Kumamoto. How about one in Fukuoka? Fine, I hope.

> My understanding is that there were some people who were talking there at that time, am I right?

A little bit different. There were some people sitting in front of PCs without in silence. I was the only one who had an access to Skype (maybe).

> Uh.....Was there any chance that your conversation was getting louder gradually or that there was someone who was annoyed with English sound? (Not you, but just English sound.)

Yes, you're probably right... It happened before, remember? We got excited as we talked in English. ^^; I tried not to be a private nuisance, but I cannot say I was not lousy. I wish I could have Skype in my PC...

Oh!, my.....

Hi, Emi-san
Oh, gosh! That's bad...Sorry to hear that.

My understanding is that there were some people who were talking there at that time, am I right?
Uh.....Was there any chance that your conversation was getting louder gradually or that there was someone who was annoyed with English sound? (Not you, but just English sound.)

I believe you can be quicker on your feet, whether the former or the latter.
