Getting someone else to do your job
April 19, 2017 8:26pm CST
Have you ever had someone do the job you should be doing? I saw this interesting piece on BBC Earth where the common cuckoo lays its eggs in the nest of another bird, and cons the other bird into thinking it is her eggs. She tosses an egg out and lays one of her own. When the cuckoo's chicks hatch, they toss the rest of the eggs out of the nest. The other bird falls for it and treats the impostors like her own takes care of them and feeds them. Meanwhile, the crafty cuckoo is off having fun, and making more eggs. I guess you can say she is a smart cookie or really devious. Have you ever tricked anyone into doing your job for you or visa versa?
