Hi guys! When my boss gives my team several difficult tasks, my team members frequently avoid doing the tasks and want me to take care of the tasks. They are such horrible people. Is it correct to say "Whenever my boss assigns my team a few tough tasks, my team members always push the tasks to me." in this context?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

You could also say something like "... shove the tasks {over to / onto} me."

I am unclear whether these are unpleasant tasks or whether they are difficult , complex tasks.

A useful, but less than polite, phrase is , "all the crap lands on my desk", "they push all the crap onto me".

"They keep all the best jobs and just give me the dregs"

I'm puzzled therefore I think.
