When you are born covered in fetching grey and white feathers, it typically doesn’t take long to realize you need to hire some help.

From taking care of your VIP fans to evading paparazzi, crafting your memoirs to near-daily fashion shoots (not to mention managing your career as the world famous and feathery actor, Pearl Cutts), bringing on a large featherless assistant to handle the overflow can be a smart move.

But  sometimes this strategy can also backfire.

For example, one day you might return home to roost after another grueling day of superstardom to discover your personal portion of the roost has gotten….smaller.

Suddenly there are…..shells. Everywhere. Every time you turn around, it seems, your personal assistant is cooing at the small orange-dotted and tan shell or hand-feeding the (sort of) small brown and red-dotted shell.

This will never do. You must take swift and decisive action to reassert the natural pecking order.

Option A is a simple show of what is called “passive” resistance. Exuding high levels of “cuteness” can help ensure your large featherless assistant notices and logs your protests.
If Option A doesn’t work, don’t hesitate to move on to Option B, which is “not-so-passive” resistance. “Fierceness” and “ferociousness” can help to communicate clear instructions to your assistant about next (shell relocation) steps.
