I'm fortunate that I only work in this open office (basically a cubicle/ carrel farm) about once a week. It's usually supremely distracting, even when I have earbuds in & music on, ie shields up.
But today, one of my colleagues in here is verbalizing her thoughts just barely above a whisper, and it's incredibly, surprisingly charming.
She's at least a generation older than me & a Comp/Rhet instructor. I often wonder if folks like this are part of our large undiagnosed ADHD squad.
