This is a question The passive-aggressive guilt trip

My mother is an expert in the guilt-trip. Last week she phoned to say "Happy Birthday" and, after a 10 minute conversation, finished with, "Well, I hope you have a nicer time than I did on the day you were born."

She also stated that she was going to kill herself when she reached 65. On Christmas Day morning. Having rung up to see if there was anything she could bring for lunch.

I think it's just a mother thing, but how good are your relatives and friends at the passive-aggessive?

An unintentional guilt trip...
A few years ago, I went for a week's holiday with Mr Rakky to Amsterdam. We spent a pleasant few days getting minced and watching porn - really quality time together. One afternoon, emerging from the gloom of a coffee shop, I realised that my wallet had been stolen. In it was all the money, credit cards train tickets etc. In a panic, but still out of my tree, I phoned my mum to ask her what I should do. After a bit of faffing around, she called me back and said that she'd organised a Western Union transfer of some cash and that she'd cancelled all my cards. I was so grateful that she'd done all this for her stupid pot-addled daughter that i said "Mum, I don't know how I can ever thank you." Except it came out as "I'm not sure I can ever forgive you for this." There was an awful stunned silence on the other end of the phone. Then a tiny voice said "Yes dear." Arse...

Did you hear that? That was sound of my b3ta hymen ripping...
