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 A-level maths teacher was fantastic. A proper good teacher and a fun bloke to be taught by. However, every month or so he'd have a big rant and use his passive aggressive tone in his working class Lancashire accent:

"Anybody who's not prepared to pay attention and do th'work might as well just leave now because I'm sick of teaching to students who won't put th'effort in"

This was a really bad time for me to leave for a careers interview.
