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?

Last night
I went out for a friend's birthday, at the bar the food poisoning from the chinese takeaway I'd eaten began to kick in so I told her I was gonna go home and give the club a miss.

To which she replied, "Of all nights this is the worst thing that could happen, Tom got mugged in Leeds so he can't make it, Sarah's grandma has just died and Louise has flu and now you're ill... no one has turned up, I put 53 people on the guest list." There were actually about 20 people there anyway so it wasn't that bad.

Then she hugged me for about 10 minutes, and I'm 5"9 and shes about 5"2 so I just felt really awkward with this little midget woman attached to my waist whilst I was shivering and having cold sweats. In the end out of guilt/pity, I stayed until 2am
