Antisocial behaviour can get certain people to avoid
you, but it tends to show up in reviews.
LOL! That's one of my tricks too. The people at work*
probably would be very surprised if they met me outside
work and might even ask: "Hey, why aren't you this
friendly and talkative at work?" Um...maybe it's because
I want to get *work* done at work, and programming does
not lend itself well to being interrupted every 5 minutes
with a phone call, sports blabber, chit-chat, etc.
Heck, I've been too busy to visit PerlMonks lately -
now that's *busy*! ;)
*This applies to the non-programmers
only, of course
