I'd like to know if I could use 'shrug off' (meaning something like 'don't take responsibility for it and let others deal with it instead') in the following context:
"It's easy to shrug offone's responsibility onto others." There has been an accident and the speaker is saying that it's easy to accuse others of it, blame them, instead of taking the responsibility himself.
So then it would work if it were e.g. "It's easy to shrug off/away one's responsibility", wouldn't it? But if there's a change, it doesn't work.
Edit: Before I cannot edit it anymore ... I really needed an explanation, so I had to ask in another forum (thank you again, Tazzler, for helping me in this forum, you're always a great help ...): English/Spanish forum. Hope it can help others.
