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?

Everyone does it ...
My last boyfriend ... "What? Oh .. its just you seem to prefer talking to my friends... than talking to me. But that's alright.." *sad face* "... No, its fine, you go and talk to them and I'll just sit here and make sad little faces at you." (When the only reason I'd been talking to them had been because he'd left me alone for an hour or so while he did his own bloody thing.) Besides this, I was quite good friends with some of them as well but whenever I went near them ... *sad face*. Occasionally tears.

My parents are masters. "Oh, no, don't worry. I'll make myself a cup of tea... I've only been at work all day." Until it gets to the "Hang on - " "Yes?" "Would you make me one too?" =)

Can't say I don't use it myself. Muahahahahaha.
