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 did this to my ex
The night before she flew to live in Mexico we went out with some of her friends. We'd already had a "goodbye" night, and it had gone really well, unfortunately on this night I drank far too much with her mates, talking shit. It got to the end of the night and she made some comment about the batchelors she'd leave behind in London, at which point I got to my feet and said: "What about those whose hearts you broke?" Then downed an entire pint of very strong Pilsner in less than 10 seconds, turned on my heel and stormed out. Never saw her again.


She called me later that night, after I had fallen down the stairs and passed out. I don't know what she said because I was three sheets, but I know I started crying and telling her I loved her. What a fuckin guilt trip to lay on somebody.
