Weekends in India

The Indian editor wrote me an email berating me for not responding to his previous message. That he sent on Saturday evening. The due date for the proofs is July 9, so it’s not like I’m behind on anything. Are there no weekends in India, or something? I don’t respond to non-urgent work emails on weekends because I don’t see the need. I have never in my life not honored a deadline or asked for an extension. Never, no matter what was going on in my life. So why the drama?

One thought on “Weekends in India

  1. One thought is that the editor is using your material in something he is publishing and has his own deadline. You might want to do a google search to see if your material is being reused. You should get credit for it as the source if it is, of course.
