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?

Pack Your Bags, 'Cause We're Going on a...
Guilt Trip.
Went down to me Aunt's and she immediately starts in with how lonely she is, how noone else in the family ever visits, how poor she is, blah, blah, blah. I am fed up so I tell her, you have one half-hour of bitching and then I leave.

Well, this turns out to be the best present ever. Nevermind that Dad takes her shopping and to Church twice/week, my M.D. sis visits every month, little sis waits on her hand & foot and brother "Hello Kitty" dumps cash on her the first of every month (he lives five hours away).

So time's up and I head towards the door.
"Where are you going?
"I'm Done."

I am the only one in the tribe that will talk back to her. My family loves me for it.
