When your boss sends you a task at 4pm Sunday and asks for it to be done the same day. This is getting ridiculous - since when are we expected to work Sundays?! 😒 I just logged on to watch Netflix wtf

Politely respond and tell him you will do it first thing tomorrow.

Just don’t answer. If asked state you weren’t aware you needed to check email on Sundays. Ask if it really was an urgent matter. If urgent state that you should have been called instead.

Most normal people will not ask for work to be done same day over the weekend without mentioning on Friday to keep a look out for emails, unless it seriously time sensitive. If you are ignoring the email, there’s a good chance they will be doing the work late that night by themselves. It on you to manage people’s expectations of your ownership of the work. There’s no right or wrong, just how much of your life you want to give away.

Yeah eff that shiz - tell him you will do it tomorrow

Yeah don’t respond, that’s ridiculous. Unless I’ve told my staff they need to expect something coming in over the weekend, I think any emails delivered after 4-5pm on a [busy season] Saturday is assumed to be received on Monday morning

And this is why I appear offline throughout the weekend. I get my work done with less interruptions and avoid as much as possible last minute projects.
Lack of preparation of your side does not constitute my emergency.

Manager might be assuming you will get the email on Monday when he/she says “same day”. Especially if you were ghosting. I would have replied and asked if it ok to do on Monday because you have family dinner or Sunday or some crap.
