Here is a Simple Plan to avoid such situations. When you see someone's bussy don't talk to them. I mean if one person thinks something it's their problem, but when more agree you are the problem
YDI. If people are working let them be. Interrupt them only to offer a hot beverage not more than once an hour.
Alternatively, if someone interrupts you when you're busy, let them know you'd like to be left alone. If you don't give any indication that you're bothered by the interruption then people aren't likely to know that they need to stop. I spend so much time on my laptop it's pretty much impossible to know if I'm working or playing Sims without me telling you, the only way OP would be solely at fault here is if they have been told multiple times and have ignored the warning. In which case, they're an asshole.
Speaking as a student studying for final exams... YDI. I frequently have to remind myself not to stab any person that talks to me while I'm studying in the eyeball. Silence!
