How to become the scapegoat for the family:

1. Live in another geographic area without other members of the family. This will make you expendable.

2. Try to gather, as a family, when huge, crucial emotional events are taking place.

3. Make a joke, or a mistake, or eat food other than what is served.

4. Controversy, gossip will be unleashed when you leave the table, others can bond by focusing on your supposed reaction to...whatever, or your "independent actions" or just how wrong you are.

5. Hey scapegoat; you're the black sheep! Everyone's shadow is cast on you!
