That's when I just received a request from one of the development teams to have a custom-composed trailer scored, edited, and mixed for Monday.
That's ridiculous. But I'm such an industrious little worker that my answer was - as always - "No problem!"
How do you say that it is a problem? It still needs to be done. I will do the job. Am I supposed to make people view me as a grumpy employee while I do it just because their request is unreasonable? Or if I make it clear once that it's unreasonable will they stop making unreasonable requests? Unlikely.
It's a no-win situation.
What would they have done if I'd left for the night already? Nevermind. I know the answer to that. I've been called at home before.
