I would say, “Can I help you with something?”

It’s the polite version of, “What the F are you doing?”

I would be bothered but there is nothing you can do. Unless you want to be ballsy and ask him to GTFO.

It’s not a closed door office, or an office at all. It is weird though.

@KateByDesign:  +1

 

I do this all the time when I’m in my cube and don’t want to be bothered.

@KateByDesign:  +1.  I have actually said that to someone before at work haha.  It certainly got the point across.

@annb9:  Can you put blinds or curtains up on the window? LOL next time he walks in and heads that way let him know you put them up because the window seemed to be distracting to SOME people…

@annb9:  If all else fails, call your office phone discretely from your cell phone and then be all like “Oh, I gotta take this, sorry!”

@annb9:  Hope it works! 🙂  You should screw with him and tape a picture to the window at head height if he does decide to open the blinds and peak outside (which would be incredibly rude).

Can you ask your boss about moving the printer?

@annb9:  I dont have much advice to offer lol but I did want to say I agree with you and I would be really annoyed!!

For example,  I have a mini-fridge in my office and a coworker decided to put HER stuff in it while I was out sick for 2 days (keep in mind we do have a huge department regular-sized fridged and I got a mini-fridge for my office anyway). I totally disgress but your space is your space! I’m not saying I would say something (or did say something myself lol) I kind of just nodded and smile and said “oh ok”. But deep down, I was annoyed.
