Today, I'm trying to enjoy my first day of unemployment after quitting a high-stress/low-pay job. I just got a text from my ex-boss asking if I could come in for a few hours to show my successors how to do something. I worked 60 hours last week creating thorough how-to guides for everything. FML

I'd do as they say, OP. There could be consequences if you don't:

*OP's ex-boss motions towards chair*

"Take a seat. Listen, I'm really sorry to have to do this, but your performance has dramatically suffered since you left, so I'm afraid we're going to have to hire you."

"What… I can't believe this. You can't HIRE ME! I've put in so much time since quitting!"

"You have put in a lot of time, and makes me so sad to have to hire somebody who showed so much potential. Please pack up your things… and bring them here Monday morning, 8AM."

You quit. You're done. You have zero obligation to go in and, depending on a reference or not, you should respectively say "I'm sorry but I'm unable to come in. I am no longer employed here and it is not my responsibility to teach them. I urge you to use the how-to guides I created last week for them to use. I wish you the best."

FYI, usually, most places don't actually call your references. Sometimes they might but it's not really often.
