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?

Trying to persuade a girl-friend to come stay over with me on Friday night.

Monday: Yes, would love to.
Tuesday: Umm... maybe it's not a good idea.
Wednesday: Sure. Looking forward to it.
Thursday: I can't really.

So make arrangements with other mates.

Friday: "I'm really annoyed with you. You know I wanted to come down. Can't you cancel your other mates? What if I offer you sex?".
