I carry “BS filters” in my pocket at all times. (Ear plugs) When talkers get around my desk, I am either too tempted to join in the conversation or get frazzled like you’re talking about. So, instead of making a scene, I just pop in my foam earplugs and the distractions just fade away! Sure I can’t hear the phone ring, but I get anxious talking on the dreaded phone anyway!
