I think the thing that can get me the most is that most places nowadays have their own chat system up. Like Slack or something similar. Yet it is like we just skip it. To be asked a question that really only has a yes or no answer and to not just message me is frustrating. If I see after a few messages that we can't figure something out through messages then I'll tell you to come over or I'll gladly come over.

Most of my co-workers seem to get my signs. No headphones in, I'm wide open. Only 1 headphone in I'm open but trying to concentrate. If both headphones in, just message me. Person who works next to me does the same thing really. When I see he has both headphones in I either just see if it's something that can wait or message him.
