German term or phrase:sich einschleichen (here)
In der Abteilung, die Sie seit zwei Jahren leiten, ***hat es sich eingeschlichen***, dass Sie sämtliche Sitzungen moderieren. Jetzt kommt von einem neuen Mitar-beiter der Vorschlag, die Moderation turnusmäßig zu wechseln.
Could I perhaps say, 'a rumour has got out' or something like that here? I don't think using 'creeping' or anything like that would fit.
Explanation: Without any authorisation this person has always moderated the meetings.It was just a matter of course or out of habit that no-one else did it, or was allowed to. Now someone has suggested a change.
