You sound so entitled and rude.
Will you pop round and clean my car for me tomorrow ? Ok you don’t know me and you won’t get anything out of the deal and soz but my car looked dirty 3 weeks ago but I just decided I need to impress my new boss so I need it done sharpish. Oh, and I don’t care if you were planning to do anything important with this time or that this will never appear as one of your work outputs or help with your promotion or career development because I have no idea what your job entails and don’t really care.

Ok, now replace “clean car” with “write reference” and notice the lack of “please”.

Nah, it's not even 'will you pop round and clean my car for me tomorrow?' OP just went straight to 'I need you to clean my car for me tomorrow, no ifs, ands, or buts.'
