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?

After witnessing...
and laughing at a rather rogue schoolboy letting down a teacher's tyres I got an earful from the Headmaster about how it was said teachers last day and he didn't need this.

I "should have stopped him", he said! The fact he'd have to foot-pump his tyres up would also make him late for his charity golf tournament he was in at 4pm. If I could go back in time, I'd have changed nothing.
