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 dear mother
I live 3,500 miles away from my parents. They're lovely people, but my mother gets incredibly intense, and we can't cope with it for more than a few days at a time.

In the meantime, I get a daily e-mail that has somewhere buried in it a reference to how it would all be so much easier/better/happier if I lived closer/we got to see you more often.
