I am quite assertive usually but I'm working with this nasty piece who keeps 'putting me forward' for Jobs she can't be bothered doing herself because of my 'expertise' in a particular area. How do I tell her to jog on without telling her to jog on!?!?

Nast Piece: Can you do job X for me?

traythegreat: If I have time after my current job list I'll let you know

Never let her know

Be assertive as you usually are. I usually try to deal with this sort of thing by being nice about it at first as maybe they genuinley dont see the problem if this doesnt work then make it clear your not happy but in a semi nice way if this fails too theyre obviously at it so assertion has failed next phase aggression lol. Non physical obviously

Volunteer to train her up on the task ?
Tell her you are busy and could she run it by your supervisor ?
Tell her you've forgotten how to do that job

Can you give us an example of what happens and the job types?

You could always say something like 'please do not put me forward for jobs that you are capable of, I have other things that are more pressing that I need to take care of'?
