When I have headphones on:

[Insert random co-worker] "Oh is it ok if I disturb you?"
[Me] *Sigh* "Yes (you already have)"
[Same random co-worker] "Series of questions"

Result: 2 minutes of my time, and about 45 minutes of trying to get back to what I was working on.

This is what emails are for. Unless you are dying, then fuck off. And even then, I probably don't care and you can die in peace.

Don't know about your workplace, but at mine "No I am in the middle of something" is a pretty suitable response.

Due to the nature of programming, most of the time is too late once the questions been asked.

Might as well answer and try to get back to where you were.

Headphones generally mean "Fuck off, I'm busy", but not adhere to that

Taking a piss and you're forever shaking off the piss drips because you thought you had finished.

Or when your belt hovers into your piss-stream.

Couriers.

Last night, I wondered where an order of mine was, so logged into the site I ordered it from, and did a track and trace to discover that the day prior delivery was attempted and a "card to collect" was left..
I found this a little odd, because I hadn't received such card.

Checking my security footage for the time of "Attempted delivery" sure enough, I see the courier pull down my driveway, in what looks like his personal car, he gets out of the car holding his scanner thing, no card, no package.. he looks at my garage door, looks at the path up to the house, then gets back in his car and leaves... no card left.

This morning, I get an e-mail from another company for something else I had ordered saying "Delivery was attempted"
Wait... I was home this morning?!
Checking the cameras again, courier driver pulls down the driveway, DOESN'T EVEN GET OUT OF THE VAN, waits about 10 seconds, and just buggers off again.
I WAS HOME! how about knocking on the door!!

The worst is when i'm taking a piss in a urinal, then a work colleague comes in and takes up position in the one right next to me, and then proceeds to have a full on conversation with me.

Maybe it's just me, I just don't like talking to people while holding my dick.

Not just you. I hate it when someone tries to talk to me when I'm in the toilet. "I have my dick out, I have no interest in communicating with you".

Even if I'm pissing into a toilet, with the door closed, I won't ever talk while pissing.

Unless I'm drunk, but of course, that changes everything.

Thankfully I don't generally have to deal with that really any more, we have a service desk, a desktop/user technology team, and the rest of the server team, and my boss hasn't been shy lately about telling people to fuck off and not come to me directly for shit.

adjective
1.
a. denoting a verb when it does not require a direct object
b. denoting a verb that customarily does not require a direct object ⇒ "to faint" is an intransitive verb
