Am I being unreasonable?
I am a manager in my dept, there are 2 managers. I very seldom leave for lunch, usually I bring my lunch and eat in the breakroom while reading the paper. Almost everyone knows not to bother me with work-related items during this time, unless it is an emergency, of course.
Now, I don't mean that someone can't say hi, or comment on the weather, etc. But do not come up to me and say "hey did you see that email from John, blah, blah, blah".
So, enter newgirl (8 months now, so not really new). Who is also the one that will send you an email then come to find you to tell you she just sent you an email. She came into the break room and said Hi Goldlilocks. I replied Hi. She then said, "I'm going to send you.. --- and I said STOP. She looked rather blank, and continued "about the XX project" --- and again I said Stop. I added - you can send me whateve you want and you can come talk to me after lunch, but you cannot speak to me now.
She gave me a look as if I'm a b****. Now, I'll admit I could have handled this a little better - but am I unreasonable to ask people not to speak to me about work-related items when I'm in the breakroom? If it makes any difference, Newgirl works for the other manager.
