Blaming Others

The Blame-It-On-Someone-Else Method

          One day when my son Scott was two years old, I heard him crying.  I went into his room and my daughter Hannah, who was four, was there also.  A plastic bat was lying on the floor.  

          "What happened to Scott?" I asked.

          Hannah answered, "He hit his head."

          "On what?"

          She pointed toward the bat on the floor and said, "The bat."

          "Where was the bat?"  

          She said, "In my hand." 

          We learn the Blame-It-On-Someone-Else Method at such an early age. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook, Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2003, 50)
