...people are constantly and simultaneously asking for help over Team chat.

In the office, most of the people are in the same space with me, so they can see if I'm talking with somebody, and they patiently wait their turn.

An interesting artifact -- queuing when people can see other people are busy, vs. constant interruption as a result of not seeing each other. And nobody pays attention to the "do not disturb", "away", or "in a meeting" icons. What's the use?

I think I see an idea for all these chat apps - they should have a queuing feature so that chats occur with just one person at a time until the conversation is done, and you don't even get to see the other people in the queue until the current conversation is done.
