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?

When i was younger, around 5 years old, on xmas eve my mum used to tell me if i didnt manage to get to sleep before father christmas had done his rounds then there would be no presents for me or my brother and sisters. thing is, i am an insomniac, this coupled with the fact that it is christmas eve, no way in hell will i be asleep any time soon. come 2am and i am near suffocating crying into my pillow, cause santa wont have brought my family pressies.
