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 have moved away from the UK
and in all honesty it is one of the brighter things I have done.

my dear old parents don't see it that way, they feel I am too young and all I am doing is making the biggest mistake of my life.

and so once a week at work, I get a phone call from my dad saying my mum is worried sick and why don't I phone more often. despite the fact I don't have a phone that makes international call, and maybe I should change jobs to get one.....
