The seventh law of Robert Greene’s 48 laws of power says-
Get others to do the works for you but always take the credit.
Now, you think such people don’t exist? Really? I have lived with one till 2005, she always made us do errands for her and her chum, buddy, pals and ALWAYS took the credit, as a result we worked like her slaves and she became everyone’s adorable thingie! She had some pets of her own who helped her in telling people lies that she did all those things and more, she never ever admitted to anyone that she made us do those things for her.
So, when someone makes you work do check out where are the results are going, if you are working then you are the one who deserves its results, good or bad!
Never fall for such vile creatures, there are too many of them around you, just observe.
One of the most tragic experience of their prey is most probably the brilliant scientist whose works a shrewd contemporary scientist without much talent bought for dimes and earned millions and fame. I will later add their names here, just cant remember their names! sorry! the guy who invented alternate current… I always forget his name! grrr
