I wonder what compels the universe to wait 5 minutes into my lunch break to send me the most self-entitled and snarky old lady (who stubbornly refuses to understand anything I'm telling her), and the barely comprehensible Chinese lady who wants to deposit $18,000 in bundles of $100 bills, and the pleasant but clearly fakely apologetic Indian couple who interrupt me-- when my door is locked, the sign is changed to "we will help you at ______" and I am MID-BITE-- in order to demand to make an account joint.

You are lucky & have a door which can be closed/locked. Personally, I would advise ignoring all knocking until after your break is over, but if you feel compelled to answer, then the following sentence should be uttered, without waiting for a response before proceeding to close & lock the door once again: "Sorry, I'm busy & will be until after Xpm. Please come back then."

P.S.: I'm so sorry your lunch was taken up by others believing that their needs are more important than your own. *hugs*

Aw, fenks! *hug*

And I realize how lucky I am to have a door. I would fail at being front-desk staff.

In reality I was more amused than very angry. I will sometimes have whole hours in which I will see not a soul, but it is nonetheless guaranteed that as soon as the sign is changed and I start to eat, in march the hoi polloi. Hurray!
