When your boss's peer tasks you, or requires work from you, we call that the The Aunt Trap. It used to be The Uncle Trap, but we modernized the reference.

Your boss has role power over you and your team, so when he tasks you it's no surprise. But what about his peers? Can they task you? Do they really "have" role power over you? Are you obligated to comply? What affect does your boss's relationship with his peer have on her tasking of you? It depends on relationships and communication.
