    Default looks quite cunning

    What do you call a person who doesn't work hard or study hard, trying every means like this way or that?
    It can be any kind of laziness, so such a person looks quite cunning.
    We have a slang word to tease such person in Korean, and I'm curious about its English counterpart.

    Lazybones.

    It can be any kind of laziness, so such a person can appear to be cunning.(Really? How?)

    Only a grammar question.
    ex)We have a slang word to tease such (a) person in Korean , I'm curious about English counterparts.
    I don't think you can insert a comma here to join two sentences without any conjuction. Does the following make sense?
    ex)I eat it, he eats it.
    I also make this kind of sentences a lot of times, but just for fast-typing, and I know it's wrong.
