Closing email is a good idea. Now, if only my cube had a fourth wall and door to keep out interupters.
There’s a guy on my team, a nice guy, with a habit that grates like mad on everyone’s nerves. He comes to your cube, knocks twice on the metal endpiece of a cube wall and says, “Knock, knock.” Then he launches into his question or comment.
It drives everyone crazy. It’s irritating like something on par in “Office Space”.
It takes a great deal of willpower not to say, “Dude, you are not “knocking” on a door. If you were, I would have the opportunity not to answer!”
