This will prompt them to use this weakness in order to get a job done by you. As a consequence, you are trapped by other people’s promise under your name. If you failed, it’s your fault. If you succeeded, they will probably take the credit. If you didn’t agree on doing a task, don’t do it. If you didn’t deliver, it’s not your fault. It’s the person who made the promise whose reputation will be tinged. Inform your boss or the management if someone promises that you allegedly claimed a task.
