If the chatter is work chatter I can tune it out. If it’s other than work chatter, a two minutes is fine. After a couple of minutes, oh and worse coworkers start gather around also start chatter near me. I’m beginning to boil.
If it’s true, it’s true, but, it’s always women co-workers that are of midrange (specialist, and such) colleagues, and if the supervisor is a women, good luck trying to get her to do anything about it. Your female boss will even tell you to turn on and turn up some music. Egregious, hostile environment!
I have had a female supervisor who did not tolerate cubicle visiting and chatter. Oh, it was nice to hear myself think.
I decided to move on and get another job. A lawyer told me I should have contacted him before I quit. Too bad, because I had done an outstanding job of documenting everything over the time of the problem.
