I share a workspace. One of the people in that space is always asking, '"What's wrong? Can I help?" type questions.

Nothing is wrong!!!!!! I just can't always sit around and chat. I have a freaking job to do and I'm constantly pulled for other things. So when I have a minute to do my job, I get focused. I wish I had my own office

I understand that people try to be helpful by asking those questions, but this is annoying.

Vent over.

Now isn't a good time to talk. I'm really busy.

Why must silence be filled with talk or interaction? Iím glad to have my four walls. I get much more done when Iím alone. Then I can leave!

I've worked with someone like this before...If I didn't sit around and shoot the sh*t with them they thought that something was wrong or I was mad at them....NOPE I just have a job to do and that's what I'm doing!

Sometimes in your own space this happens, too. I like the suggested response above.

Can you make some sort of divider? Using bookcase or file cabinets?

Our space is very limited. No, I can't make a divider. If I did, I would literally have to put something on top of my desk and look like a crazy person. Thanks for the suggestion.
