I’ve already commented on a similar thread but wanted to start my own where I can express myself and have others comment on my situation. I’m generally a quiet and reserved person, and I come to work to do one thing – work. The women at my office have the tendency to chat incessantly and because of this, I find it difficult to concentrate and get work done. This one woman (looks like Jabba the Hutt) talks so loud to where I can hear her through my noise cancelling earphones. The problem is, the more they know that I’m trying to concentrate and get work done, the louder and more obnoxious they’ll become. They will gather around my cubicle and start laughing SO loud that the entire flood could hear it. They’ll stomp the floor with their feet just so they can get me upset, then they’ll laugh it up. Btw, these are grown women who are actling immature. I’ve had suggestions of just keeping to myself and ignore it all, but the more I try to keep to myself… the more obnoxious they’ll become. What can I do about this situation? Btw, they talk major trash about me and guess what? I don’t say shit to anyone and respect everyone there.
