Just get Away
 
There is a lady that I work with that bothers me so much. While I am working on the computer it is nothing for her to come and stand directly behind me watching what I type. One of these days I would just love to send an email with her behind me stating something about how annoying I find it, but I just can not be that rude. I have just sat there before when she stands behind me, stopped working but she still never gets the hint.

Just turn around, say "sorry, didn't see you there, what can I do for you?" simple...

Turn around and say, "if your going to continue to stand so close to me please shower" ;)

if anything will have the effect you want and also be appropriate for the work place, it's 5kgLifter's suggestion.

from having been in similar situations, though, my experience is that this will not be an issue that gets resolved. it's because:

1. the person is so ignorant that she/he won't take a hint, no matter how clear the hint is. this is because they're a bit egocentric and don't see themselves as having an effect on other people.

2. in light of 1., your only options are a) tell her directly that she's making you uncomfortable, b) continue dropping useless hints, or c) endure the irritating behavior. of course with a), you risk a major conflict that could possibly make your work place even more uncomfortable than it already is.

Depending on how close they stand, set up to drop something in front of you (rolls down chest) and scoot chair back violently to get it.. hope you run over their foot or break a kneecap
