Please translate this sentence

Esta gente me ha mandado cosas que hacer literalmente el viernes Y para colmo me ajoran cuando ellos son los que estan tarde.

If it matters, this was typed in an email by a man from Puerto Rico.

Thank you.

Hi jhernandez,

Sounds to me like: "These people have given me things to do literally by
Friday, and to top it off they're pushing me when it is THEY who are late."

Maybe it's a typo: ajoran => arrojan.

According to Google: "ajorar" in Puerto Rico means to put pressure on someone to make them hurry. So "ajorar" ≈ "urgir", "apresurar", "apremiar".
