A new intern started working here about two weeks ago. He sits right next to me.
The things is that he is too intrusive. Whenever I am talking with other colleagues from my desk he turns to one of us and asks, "What's going on?" That happens with personal and work-related conversations.
He also started asking why I am doing this or that, jumping into conversations asking why I am requesting access or x or y.
It's annoying but it might be that he really wants to be involved with the rest of the team and the work itself so I don't want to be rude and turn him into an introspective person.
How can I politely ask him to step off a little bit?
