Passive Aggressive Notes

Thanks to Scott Beale of Laughing Squid for the post Passive-Aggressive Notes, reminding me about the webste Passive Aggressive Passive Aggressive is a site posting notes complaining of other people’s behavior. The following notes from the clash of a vegan and meat eater clashing is a perfect example of the content of this site:

Hostile Note - Bacon is Life

The language is a little vulgar, but this gives you an example of some of the content that is posted on the site. How can you not laugh at the statement Bacon is life?

People send in notes from their roommates or coworkers, or their friends roommates and coworkers. The majority of the language in the posts, doesn’t contain swearing. A majority of the content isn’t even passive aggressive. Read some of the about for a better explanation of the content of the site. From the about of Passive Aggressive –

many of the notes found here aren’t really passive-aggressive even by our generous standards — though quite a few of these are, in fact, responses to passive-aggressive behavior. some of these notes are really more aggressive in tone, and some of them are more passive — polite, even — but they all share a common sense of frustration that’s been channeled into written form rather than a direct confrontation. it’s barbed criticism disguised as something else — helpful advice, a funny joke, simple forgetfulness. really, what it comes down to is that this project has very quickly taken on a life of its own — one that defies any kind of label. but, like pornography, you know it when you see it.

If you think your job or living situation isn’t optimal, this site will breathe a little life into you, by showing you that cranky roommates and coworkers and people are everywhere. Some of which could be worse than you have to deal with.

Disclaimer – the notes displayed here do not reflect my support for discordance between meat eaters and vegans, and is used only for illustrative purposes of the content on the Passive website.

    I LOVE that site. It is always good for a laugh. The funny thing is I had seen so many similar ones to them in real life before I saw them on the site so it was like seeing the Dilbert Principal in action. 😉

    teeni – this site makes me laugh. I could see how having read similar notes in real life before seeing the site would be funny.

    I just love the PS on the note – Bacon is life. I am glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read those notes, I would have shot that bevarage out of my nose.

    I love PAN, too. You should also check out It’s a collection of weird/funny lost and found ads from the internet. All of them true and really interesting — kind of like PostSecret or Found.
