Here is the “official” definition:
The act of delivering bad or unpleasant news via email at the very last point in the day, so as to purposely avoid being there when the response is received. Usually deployed just after 5pm or before going away on holiday.
Person 1 – “I really don’t want to have to deal with this”
Person 2 -“Why don’t you just do a send and run?”
