Low Tech grunt
In the grand scheme of things this is not a big deal but it is annoying.
My plant society that is dying has a person, no make that two or three people, who seem to be obsessed with physical objects. One of them rounded up the old "library" of books about our plants. The library was in the hands of someone who quit our group years ago and she had been trying to get someone to come and take it. So, the savior of the library is so pleased with herself and is now presenting it as a problem I have to solve, what do we do with the library? I told her you – –you! -- May do whatever you like with it. We brainstormed a couple of ideas but her desire that it be preserved and handed off to an entity in entirety is utterly unrealistic. The " library" is just a bunch of society quarterlies and a handful of books, it is not an important collection.
Then there are the carvings. Someone, long dead, liked to carve and gave away several carvings of our flower. Now those carvings are ending up in my house. There is another one
I am expected to drive across town to fetch. At least these may have a chance of disappearing at the auction of our convention.
There are other mundane things we spend ridiculous amounts of time talking about. Ugh. Our organization will be disbanded by December 1, I keep telling me self only 7 more months.
You have become the "somebody" or "someone" that needs to do this thing, or fix the problem and on and one. I am seeing it more and more all around me.
It is annoying for sure. But then it dawns on me--these people are actually incapable of dealing with the "stuff " which is why we have so much of it. So I guess I am happy that I am whole, hardy, and capable of making things happen.

I am quite certain that should she reappear she will share with us all of her sadz about disbanding our organization and plead "can't something be done???!!!" Meanwhile some of us have actually been doing some things.
Did you add the word librarian at the end of that sentence?

This creeped me out.
