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?

I love...
pulling off passive-aggressive guilt trips on teachers. Whenever I get on the verge of a bollockin' from a teacher, I sprout a load of self-loathing bull and normally get away with it pretty easily. Take last week...

I stand in line for my form class (We're not trusted enough to go to the class by ourselves =P), I talk to my mate Otis, who pops out one (of the many) ways to wind me up to high heaven...

"Are you doing Baskeball today?"

I absolutly bloody hate the thing, I just play footie with the basketball and swear alot like usual, so I reply with the witty "Get forked, fork face!" in my geordie-ish twang, but alas, Assistant HeadTeacher Mrs. Evilcow catches me at my little outburst moment.


A- Why are you using language like that?
M- Sorry miss, I just lost it.
(O- Phimselflaughing)
A- Have you been winding him up?
O- Eh? No?
M- He hasn't miss, I've just been stressed out with all the homework I've been getting and I've been having a hard time of it lately.
A(Decides to ignore what I just said) Dont wind him up, Go to form.(Turns to me) Have you been having Family troubles?
M, pretty freaked out- N...o?
A- Ok, Well just go to form.

Havn't been in trouble since, so it isn't that bad =D

Don't complain about length, it's not my fault I have family problems!!!
