    The first one is only excepted by emergencies, or one's boss.

    Wouldn't that fall into the above?

    @Cyanite I used to be the boss, so those rules never applied to me 😂

    I see the first one easily broken by slack messaging from colleagues. You can always ignore rough, but most likely after a while they'll tag u or come ask u anyway if u read their message lol.

    @Cyanite I got my whole office to do that by showing them slack, so now we send messages if we want to talk

    @iseverino totally true, yet I find answering a Slack message much less distracting than a visit to my desk

    @valenc3x true that, is so less invasive also. No need to turn nor take the headphones off xD

    If head is covered with jacket/towel/blanket, do not disturb under any circumstances. No shouting, talking, or loud noises.

    If snoring is heard, use both headphones to cover your ears.

    You may join in if you wish.

    Thank you.

    This is my mojo:
    Loud music when Office is too noisy, or I'm not in good mood.

    Mid volume when i like the song, and I want inspiration/ impulsion to do a task.

    Minimum volume, low enough to ear everybody when office is quieter.

    One ear to listen someone.

    Put phones down if that person deserves full attention.

    If I forget to pause the music before talking with you, and my headphones stay down, you really had my attention.

    Both ears means "go back to your desk and Slack me."
