Passive Aggressive Notes

I’ve received quite a few passive aggressive notes in my day, especially from my last house mate, and it’s never fun. It’s frustrating, and childish, and it makes me wonder why spoken words are so difficult.

Reading passive aggressive notes written to other people, however, is absolute comedy gold.

Here are a few of my favorites from this absolutely brilliant archive:

Gross sponge?  No more!
This one’s actually pretty similar to the one my ex-roomy left me, except we had a dishwasher so I’m not sure what her deal was.

We all deserve a drink…
I post this one not because it is terribly funny, but because I feel the need to heap more attention on the nation’s shocking lack of any innovative technology in the way of self-replenishing refrigerators.

Seriously, man! TACKY.

This one is great because of the Christmas Spirit-y, decorative stationary.

And lastly, happy 4th of July to the American readers out there. Enjoy your fireworks and barbecues and ice cream and everything.

    LOL – thanx for sharing. :)

    I think I could submit some of the notes doing the rounds in our office – we have quite a few hilarious ones 😛

    Ah yes, PAnotes has been part of my daily humor routine for a while now. That and xkcd. Gold, both of ’em.

    I don’t see much to be happy about, except, perhaps, that George “dubya” Bush is held in contempt by 60% of the populace. Unfortunately Bush and Cheney are still in office, and not prison garb. Oh, and Rove.

    Lighten up, Jacques baby. Some of us are still pretty darn thrilled to be Americans. Presidents come and go, but Lady Liberty stands tall.

    Happy Independence Day!

    I love your sense of humor. Dead on. 😀

    Ditto that, Diesel! And Jaques, you’d be speaking German now if it weren’t for this free country. We even named a strap after you.

    Happy Independence Day! Hope y’all have the same number of fingers tomorrow!

    Oh yeah… passive-aggressive notes… My favorite: “Please put the toilet seat back up after you’re done peeing on it.”

    My boss is passive-agressive, but verbally.

    The email is funny but it’s not passive aggressive. It clearly states the sender & that you are tacky.

    These notes make me cringe. I hate when people think that these obnoxious little comments are going to do the trick.

    haha i left a hot dog on the kitchen counter in my apartment once, and then left the house forgetting it was there. When i got home my suite mate (who was a girl) had drenched it with frenchs mustard and there was a note next to it that said EAT IT…possibly one of the weirdest experiences of my life..i moved out like 3 weeks later
