My fellow developer just sits next to me and is very nice person. But he keeps peeping into my screen and say -
"oh, why are you looking into x "
"oh, so you looking into y"
"oh, there is blog post on this"

It really turns me off :x

How to tell him politely that I don't like this.

    "Stop looking at my screen, you're violating my privacy" would be one way.

    Wear a headset and pretend you didn’t heard him

    "Mind your own fucking business you nosey little cuntbag."


    "Look man I really don't appreciate you constantly looking over at my screen and commenting on what I'm doing. It's pretty nosey and a bit rude, so if you don't mind, please stop."

    Scream like you are scared each time he opens up his mouth

    Check his screen, advice him back ... Fuck him up ...

    Reversed psychology

    @devTea Haha. Won't work, though. I do that sometimes and people wave their hands at me to call my attention.

    @gurpreet You could try just going "uh-huh" to everything he says until he picks up on your disinterest. I don't think there's a way to directly ask him to leave you alone without sounding harsh.

    Don't you have some work to do?!
    ^^ my response to him, not you opening xy & z xD

    Ok, not a nice way but yeah..

    I also stop coding if boss comes by, it annoys me if someone looks in real time how I produce bugs xD
    No really, I can't code if I sense someone is watching me. Same was when writing exams.. prof came by, I stopped, put down my pen and looked at him as if he needs something.. he probably thought I was cheating somehow 😂😂😂😂

    Next time pull your zipper down and force him to blow you.

    @gurpreet You could also try the old method "I had a friend back in college who used to stare at my screen and it really made me uncomfortable ...".

    Smile while hearing nothing from music in your headset!
    Headsets are great BTW, giving you a little peaceful cloud around your head, covering you from the outside storm.
