really annoys me, this does.
I've started doing this ALL THE TIME, not just at work. I found myself muttering on the escaltor at the train station earlier and the teacher who was just ahead of me grabbed onto her charges very quickly while looking at me fearfully.
I blame my mother. She does it.
how loudly? the woman next to me does it at normal talking volume, and asks questions too, so i keep thinking she's talking to me. Would saying "sorry?" every time she does it stop her?
and starting my running again. That always sorts me (I get all of my muttering out on the run).
Long way behind typing too loudly, but could overtake sneeze enunciation in the right circumstances.
I also fidget, tap things a lot and sing to myself.
If I sat next to me I'd kill myself.

My desk island comrade always does it all the time. I sometimes cave in and say >>What?<< to which she replies >>Oh sorry, just talking to myself<< BUT THEN SOMETIMES she's muttering and I ignore her thinking she's talking to herself but she's actually trying to talk to me! Fragahhg
My boss descends into muttered effing and jeffing when he's struggling with something PC-centric, and it's not particularly obvious whether he's expecting some sort of input from me. Pretty annoying.
who walk through your section on the way to get tea whistling tunes
But only because HE <------------------------ doesn't fucking speak.
And He ----------------------------> only speaks when I speak to him and keeps it to about three words.
Yes, I work in IT.
i swear at my computer all day long. at least i'm not whistler.
but it's ok because he whistles church hymns and there's nothing anyone can do about that because it's so meek
BLOODY HELL WHAT ABOUT THE FUM etc
because i have calculations that need logic spoken out to me head prt.
(lar de dar) but we often read them out to themselves to make sure they flow. or whatever. yeah, so you'd hate it here.
