When I was a working girl (not a prostitute, mind you), I used to get so annoyed at interruptions by people. I would clearly be frantically working on a project when some bored person would want to chit chat for 10 minutes.
When I’m at home working on a writing project, I get interrupted a LOT more than I did when I was in the work world. It’s made me much more patient. I guess it’s easier to be interrupted by kids since they are so much cuter and sweeter and more helpless. I’ve gotten good at entertaining or nursing a baby while typing or jotting down notes. I’ve been known to let a kid pull out an entire box of Kleenex so I can get 2 good minutes in on an article.
For a good time, rent the movie Office Space.
