Question: I would like to know how other assistants/receptionists/whatever your title deal with disruptions. I 'm not talking about the phone ringing, sales people coming in or clients. I 'm talking about people just stopping at your desk asking you how your weekend was, what did you have for lunch, how's this, how's that.
I' m not even centrally located to the rest of the office (to the managers, I am), so it's not like they really come to talk. How do I politely (since I have to work with everyone every day) say I 'm too busy to talk about lunch/dinner or the weekend? -- Anonymous
