When I told him I couldn't cancel my weekend plans on such short notice, he asked me to always be available. Now my coworkers are angry at me for not working weekends like them. But should I have to sacrifice my personal life for work? AITA for not working weekends? Read my story and decide for yourself.

A promised work-life balance has turned into a seemingly never-ending workweek for this employee. Despite the promise of regular hours in the job interview, the employee's boss has been blowing up their phone on nights and weekends asking them to come into work. The employee has tried to set boundaries and suggest alternative ways to stay in touch, but their boss has not been receptive. Now, the employee's coworkers are frustrated that they are not working weekends and are accusing them of not pulling their weight.
