Reaching Out

There’s a new engineer at work and he’s trying to be my friend. There’s few things I care for less in a workplace than “try to be your friend” guy when not backed by actions.  For instance, I like listening to books during my lunch break.  He will tap me on the shoulder and ask what I’m listening to.  Today he tried again while I was in a bubble.

Him: Hey, what are you up to?
Me: …listening to The Economist.
Him: I make wine.
Me: That’s nice.
Him: Would you like some?
Me: Now, no.
Him: No, in general.
Me: Not really, I don’t drink.
Him: Oh, I didn’t know you were religious.
Me: I’m not.
Him: Enjoy your lunch.

He’s trying.  How do I make him stop?
