I'm in my office, just making sure things are set for Monday. My colleague in the next office is in, too, with his door closed, chatting to another colleague.
A man knocks on my colleague's door. The door opens, and the man steps in, saying something about how oh, he doesn't want to interrupt. But now he's in the room.
The second colleague excuses herself, and the man says he needs to talk to my colleague before the second day of classes. My colleague says he just got back to town and is busy, but will make an appointment for next week. And then man basically sits himself down and takes over the office.
Why do so many people just barge in like that? (You know it's not just this one man, right?)
(Yes, my colleague could have kicked him out, but not without being abruptly rude, and we know how that goes down with the evals and all.)
