    Default when

    Is this sentence correct:

    "When somebody interferes in my work, I don't like it."

    Personally, I would use with instead of in:

    "When somebody interferes with my work..."

    I'd say it's OK, but would use 'with', like Red.

    From a Google search:

    • "interferes with" = 202,000
      "interferes in" = 7,950
