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?

Evil response to Homeless
I used to work with a lad called Steve who was pretty quick with the repartee (and more than a wee bit cruel).

One day while climbing the stairs to Harrow on the Hill station, we were passing one of the local rough sleepers. The guy always sat on the steps with a pitiful expression, saying "omeless!" in as plaintive a way as he could, with hand outstretched with the obligatory McDonalds cup for offerings.

Steve stopped, gave the guy a confused look and said "Homeless? Nah mate, I've got a three bedroom house in Ruislip, what are you talking about?"
