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?

She recently completed her second course of bereavement counselling
makes her even more of an expert at head-fucking than Ron Jeremy.

In recent weeks I've been having less contact with her in order to cut the apron strings and moving all official documents to my address. For a control freak this does not go down too well with her.

This was a conversation we had yesterday:

M = me
H = her

H (with whiny voice and hurt-little-girl face): Why do you want to spend less time with me?

M: In order to cut the apron strings.

H: We're not dead yet.

An example of world-class head-fuckery, Jewish mothers take note.

Christmas is going to be fun...
