You can lie while staring your parents in the eyes and cry on the spot, making parents feel very guilty. You know exactly when to sneak out the door, get high, come back and never get caught. You are on a first name basis with the cops. You have had at least one car accident that was your fault (but you can coherantly explain why it WASN'T really your fault) or a you have a DUI. Of course, somebody else taunted you into drinking and you weren't REALLY drunk. Your siblngs say, "Oh, him? He just has the same last name as me. We're not related." You are caught with a naked picture on your cell phone, that your parents pay for, and you say, with conviction, "I have no idea how it got there. Somebody must have been messing with my phone." We'll see if the thread takes off or not.
