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?

mine probably isnt considered a guilt trip....
...but maybe it is. this is the usual conversation between me and my mom. it drives her insane, especially since i do this kind of alot.
m-cody, you're getting a haircut
c-but i like my hair this length
m-your hair's bigger than your head!
c-exactly! this is how i like it!
m-it looks like a jew-fro!(we're not jewish, and i made that up)
c-i'm not getting a haircut, mom!
m-.....fine, you don't need a haircut today
c-okay, ill get a haircut.

drives her nuts. kind of makes me fell a little sad that she said it was okay not to, that is the whole guilt trip to me. whatever.
