Responsibility creep

I found a word, scope creep, on an IT magazine and it's about having the scope of the project being expand without properly planed. Anything new will be added to the existing project except the time frame.

Anyway, I also happen to found there another form of creeping which is the responsibility creep. Programmer are being told to do something that's not within their responsibility. For example, locate files, do screen capture, do data comparison after database is restored. 

Sometimes it just make me want to say nasty word (WTF?)
