Do not Disturb - can you read the sign?The sign is usually in large bold letters to make the point clear. It can be seen on office doors and in some cases, we all see the word silence above it, such as in a medical facility or in a sensitive section of an organization. We see that 'Do not Disturb' sign and avoid knocking on the door where it has been put up or maintain silence where it is clear that there should be no noise, not even quiet talk.
What about that same sign on somebody's face? Figuratively, of course! It is called "The Look". Now, more than ever, since family members are working from home, whether working on a company's project or conducting online classes this look is an alert, even a dire warning that clearly indicates the person should not be disturbed, no matter what. If the sign is not understood, it may be accompanied by a fierce scowl or frown or shooing away gestures with hands. Are you good at reading "The Look" which gets the message across loud and clear without any actual gestures required to do so?
