I have just started a new job, as a programmer I have to get in 'The Zone' to get alot of work done, I do this by listening to music and just getting on with it.
But people kept talking to me, as I was new, they were just asking random questions (they aren't programmers) I have explained about the zone and they understand now.
Now the huge problem, the phone, I have to answer the phone, and even when I don't answer it, it kicks me straight out, no matter how loud my music is, all the phones singing in the office stop me from working.
How can I get around this? I'm hardly doing any work because of the distractions, I can't turn my phone off as I have to get it when everyone's busy, but it rings every 10 minutes!
