"As a Vice President of Marketing, Paul was tasked with..."

This sentence fragment above came to me in an email.

My skin was immediately tasked with crawling and my blood was tasked with boiling.
I was also tasked with paying no attention to the rest of the email because the writer had been tasked, I assume, in school with learning the difference between a noun and a verb but decided to ignore the "lessoning" he received.

If you speak English, please speak it properly, unless you use slang or a colloquialism or a broken phrase for effect.
