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?

Actually one from my mother
Sitting around the kitchen table with my mum and my then-girlfriend of four years. We're talking about a friend of mine who is a bita lot weird, though I mention his parents are really nice. Mum says: "Oh, I've not met them, perhaps I'll meet them at the wedding."
"Er...what wedding?" I ask.
"Oh, yours of course," she replies, casting meaningful glances around. At this stage there were no plans for marriage, nor even talk of it. We broke up a couple of months later.
