Cubicle Ambush

by Julia
(sunnyvale, california, USA)

I have a coworker who ambushes people at their cubicles first thing when they get into work. He begins interrogating you before you've even had a chance to put down your stuff, turn your computer on, or even have a cup of coffee. This is very upsetting for some of my coworkers and I were wondering what office etiquette is for this situation. Is what he's doing acceptable and we are just over-reacting? or is it considered polite to give people 10 minutes when they first get in to work?

Pleading not necessary NEW
by: Anonymous

Don't plead! Tell him firmly that you want 15 (20 whatever) minutes alone when you get to the office
then turn your back and ignore him. If you realy care,stop by his space about 10 am.
