Question: “I have a co-worker who is quite chatty. Even if I am submerged in my work she will say, “I don’t mean to interrupt,” but she interrupts, and it is always something insignificant. It is so bad that every time she walks by my desk she has to stop and talk, which is several times a day. I have spoken with her many times, stating that I can’t chat every time she comes by because I am busy and need to concentrate. I have even stated that my boss might frown upon it if she thought I was frequently socializing instead of getting the work done. Every time, she says she understands and apologizes, but then the next time I see her, she does it again. I don’t have a private office, so I can’t just close a door. How do I stop “Chatty Cathy”? — Anonymous
