Been there! Once I told a manager (not my manager, just a nosy one from another department) to buzz off. He was hovering over my shoulder, asking what I was doing. “Well, I WAS working until you got here, now leave so I can get back to it!” I like this guy’s idea!
I have a similar sign on my cube wall.

Medium text: If I’m wearing headphones, please do not disturb me. Speak to my boss to schedule some time to speak with me.
Small text: (Please disturb me if either I or the building is on fire. If you are on fire, I’m sorry but keep walking; water can be found in the bathrooms and break rooms.)
