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?

My mother has elite ninja skills in this area. She partially sighted, had a stroke and is housebound. I'm the one who had to move back in to look after her. At age 38* I want to buy a place of my own. Every time I bring it up she just changes the subject. And she... never... ever... gives in. Or just comes out with it and says 'no.'

BTW, anyone know which poisons can't be detected in autopsies?
