    I can't remember what 3D doritios were like but these are just nacho closed top bugles. I've been bamboozled.

    3D doritos were always a scam, then and now.

    When most of your product is air pockets...

    It seems to be a woman thing. I know at least a dozen married this with the same problem as us.

    It’s a great substitute in their minds for doing housework that actually needs to be done.

    They suffer in other areas, though.

    When you finish a meeting/call, and then as soon as you end it, someone else IMs you. You just know that fucker was creeping your status/calendar ready to strike as soon as you're free. At least give the person a minute or two to take a piss or fill up their coffee before you ask.

    And yes i know it's a bit irrational, that's why it's in this thread.

    Does setting your status to permanent yellow defeat this? I bet it does.

    if you have coworkers like that, start scheduling meetings with yourself. No joke, I have had to do that at previous companies.
    Stupid people focus on the math, smart people focus on the information.

    Would you have preferred your coworkers just ignore your calendar / meeting status.

    Cause that’s what you get when people wise up to you booking “focus time”

    This also. Plus, it's an effective way to book a few concentrated hours per week to have uninterrupted work. A previous boss of mine would book about 2hr every day and call it "no fly zone" where he had the guarantee of uninterrupted freedom to get shit done or go check on others or go do field checks on construction or whatever. He was a smart dude.

    I dunno, I've always been able to work it out to my own satisfaction. Like anything else, gaming the system is a part of the process.

    Probably would help, but then you're just known as the guy who always does that and let's be real, you ain't foolin anybody. One guy in our department is well known to do this and he doesn't have the best reputation. I'd rather be known as someone approachable (even though it pisses me off when i'm busy like now) vs being grouped with the guy who always has status to away.

    Good call. I actually used to be really good at blocking off time to do actual work but i stopped that a while ago for some unknown reason. Need to pick that up again. Also has the nice side effect of being invited to less meetings if you're always "unavailable" anyways.

    There's stalking features in skype... I "tag for status updates" all the time for people who are never at their desk.

    I also block off times for meetings with myself. Less to avoid the IMs (meetings don't stop IMs), but more to stop other meetings from being booked in that slot, so I can get work done.

    Having a coworker that turns every trivial observation into a chat. "You got a haircut, you're eating lunch ." When sarcasm or a blank look has no effect, they have that dopey smile on their face 24/7

    It is OK, like everyone in my culdesac has already swapped out their winter tires so it can't get cold or snow again.
