Is it getting reviewed first thing Saturday morning, and if so, why?


Honestly, most of the time this crap happens nobody actually needs it until Wednesday.


Don’t worry. I have to turn a file for a 9am session tomorrow


Another one that annoys me:

Its 7pm, "Can I get that by noon tomorrow?"

Its 4 hours of work and I have 2 hours of morning meetings tomorrow.
