Or you could grow the fuck up and do it anyway
It just means your boss didn't needed the task done, he just wanted to shout at someone to blow off some steam. So, you're working for an incompetent asshole.
The boss forgot until the next day? Sounds like a win win.
So, no pressure then
You don't tell your boss that you're done when you're done?
Where I work, the bosses don't forget they asked you to do something. They just expect you to be a competent professional and come back to them when you're done with the task.
