Oh I have a vast reppertore* of schemes like that. Bright red earbuds so I can just turn my head, and she gets the idea. Then later when she sees I'm not in a Zoom, she starts up "...but anyway..." like I'm tracking the thread from 30 minutes or an hour before.

*I spelled it like that on purpose to amuse myself but now I can't spell it. Repertoir? Repartoir? Repartois? Repartoire. Repertoire. Ooh that one.

You should engage her in a basic hello/how's your weekend conversation for a minute or so, but look slightly up and over her shoulder. When she adjusts and moves into your view, say "hold on, something is up here" tap your ear bud and say "yes? can I help you?" to her.

That was a year ago and we have a new receptionist and my desk faces her general direction so she thinks I'm listening when in fact I only tune in when she takes a breath then starts up again "...but anyway..." and off she goes again.

That would really piss me off.  (Depending on how far I got before I remembered.) Probably anything over like over four blocks or so
