Typically used in today's working environment - sudden responsibility syndrome (or SRS) is defined when a co-worker, usually a manager, deems that you are now responsible for work that was previously theirs to do.
Sometimes, the reasoning for delegating the work is legitimate, but it's often simply because the co-worker/manager is a lazy asswipe.
Manager: "Hey Ron, I'm gonna need you to take over the filing of the weekly error reports from now on, OK?"
Ron: "I guess, but I'm already working late most nights just trying to keep up with my regular workload. Did you just get some new contracts that are going to burden you or something?"
Manager: "Oh good Lord no...the boss wants to take me golfing on Wednesday mornings. Oh, that reminds me, I'll also need you to cover all of my phone calls and emails during that time as well"
Justin (to Ron): "Damn dude, looks like you just got a bad case of SRS"
An abbreviation for "serious"

Simple Random Sample. A statistical technique that selects a sample group from the population by means of random chance, such that no member of the population is more likely to be chosen than any other.
John wanted to determine the distribution of SAT test scores among his fellow students, but he could not reasonably collect data from every student. Therefore, he performed a simple random sample (SRS) by numbering every student in the school, using a random number generator, and selecting the students that corresponded to the first 25 numbers generated as his sample.
