Skype 5: The UI of hell

I won’t start a long rant about how terrible Skype 5 for Mac is, it’s clear when you look that it’s terrible, and it’s hell to use, however I keep coming across this UI nasty. When in the main window the button to call someone is a drop down with but one option that says call.

Question: Why would I need a drop down menu for a button with only one option, and better yet when I click the call button what other option could there be but to call someone? As it turns out the idiots at Skype think the ‘Add contact’ button should speradically appear under this option to. Well great I am glad that I have to repeatedly be confused by your poor UI design and lack of care and thought.
