I have an 'Ooh, you musn't say anything' kind of mum too.

I remember listening to her and my two aunts talking in hushes tones about a photo album she had lend to their cousin. She wanted it back, but "Ooh, we mustn't say anything to her."

I piped up with "Well, how do you expect to get it back without asking her for it?" and they all looked at me as if I'd suggested firebombing her house or something.

Bizarre. Maybe it's a generational thing.
