Talk ceased to be intrusive as soon as it could be confined to a window, which could then be attended to at my convenience. So about 30 years ago. But maybe that relies on the talker not being the boss-from-hell - I never had a talk-happy boss.

As for SMS, where's the problem? So long as you turn off any silly noises that notify you of them at moments not of your choosing.
