Space Invaders

No matter where I work, there are always space invaders.

In the office, someone will always come and hover behind my chair until I turn round and acknowledge/talk to them. Or someone will sit on the edge of the desk until you talk to them. Worse still is the person who comes and rearranges your desk to make room for them to perch on the edge, and then interrupt you. Perhaps the worst space invader in the office is the person who will start talking to you when they’re still 15ft away, and somehow you’re supposed to know it’s directed at you when there are another 5 people between you.

If you’re lucky enough (?) to have your own office, the space invader will be the one to walk in and start talking, irrespective of what you’re doing. Or even if the door is closed. Or if you are already meeting with someone or on the phone. This interruption is also with the apology of ‘sorry to interrupt … ‘ and will then keep on talking.
