So this has been a pet peeve of mine since I started coding roughly 7-8 years ago, and I want to know if I'm alone on this.

When non programmers ask to, or do so without informing you, watch you work.

I cannot function whilst someone is watching me, it just doesn't work.

    I had a project manager that would sit behind me when he wanted something done "for yesterday". I got so fed up I finally snapped: "Code won't write faster with you breathing on my back".

    I'd guess you don't pair program then. It may be an opportunity to learn from others that you miss out on.
