Sometimes I get annoyed, but I usually don't freeze. There usually is no
reason why someone needs to loom over anyone else at a computer, so telling
the loomers to bug off isn't too out of line. There have been times when
I've just told people "go away." I say it without any unnecessary rudeness.
The only times where I want them there is when I'm proofing something they
wrote, and I want their immediate input on some technical matter. It's kind
of fun when I ask them what A does, they ramble for 90 seconds, and I
encampsulate the ramble into fifteen words.
If they're bugging you too much, just remember Bill Murray's words in
Ghostbusters: "Back off, man. I'm a scientist."
