Annoyed

Here’s something that bugs me, since you asked: people talking to me first thing in the morning at work.  Or at home, really, but that’s easier to avoid.  When I get to work, I want to turn on my computer, read my email, have a cup of coffee, balance my checkbook and do some other inane things.  And I want to do them quietly, alone and in peace.  But sometimes people seem to think that I might want them to come into my office and drone on and on about how hard their life is and how having kids is the most difficult thing in the universe and how they have too much work to do.  Let me assure you: this is not the case.  I can tolerate these discussions (not that they are really discussions — they’re much more like monologues) much better later in the day, after I’ve had some alone time.  So, please, just give me half an hour alone and then we can talk for an hour about you don’t have enough time to get it all done.
