Yup. It drove me mad and it had a huge toll on our team. We couldn’t properly prioritize and we all started getting sick from stress too (which boss also did not take well.) Eventually had a meeting to outline team expectations and I wrote up hard guidelines on how we should communicate - less slack, allow people to focus, respect after-hours and weekends, use the right channels for real priorities. Felt weird to get that nitty gritty but it was necessary. I never went to HR about it but still think I should.
