I don't mind instrumental music in the background (no vocals), but I find
it hard to concentrate with even quiet side conversations. Loud jarring
laughter, ringing phones, even the whir of a fan can drive me crazy.

My office is at the T junction of a hallway, and those who come down the
hall feel obligated to say hello. If I close my door, the office becomes
unbearably stuffy and hot. Thank heavens for my WFH days, when I don't need
to see or hear anyone.

Heaven help me if they ever decide to (a) make me come into the office
every day, and (b) make me work in a cubicle.
