This morning, an email was sent to one of my folders at 9:32a.m. I didn't get around to checking it until our team standup at around 9:45 which I volunteered to lead the day before. As I was in the middle of checking my email, my boss states to me "Did you ignore the email I sent?" as I was reading it. Not knowing how to respond, I just said "Oh ok.." then hung up the phone and ended the standup meeting.
I am afraid this will show up on my performance review as " ignores important emails", when it was really just an honest timing mistake. Hence my question.
Given the situation above, would it be reasonable for my manager to state negatively on a performance review that I "ignore emails" or "ignore important emails"?
After speaking with my boss, it turned out it was a joke that I took too seriously. To answer your question he hasn't set any expectations for email setting, and it was a situation that I overthought
