Aggressive Aggressiveness: Blame Yourself

If you have to be passive-aggressive with me, please know that I will respond in an aggressive-aggressive manner. You’ve been warned.

Example: I’m putting on a quick coat of nail polish in my cubicle. A fellow cubicle denizen begins hacking and clearing her throat.

Response: an open bottle of cheap nail polish on top of her cabinet where she can’t see or reach it.


Example: changing the subject line in the middle of a legitimate reply-to-all email situation.

Response: Without otherwise contributing to the conversation, I changed the subject line back and followed it with “(stop it).” …I mean, I would, but this is hypothetical, of course.


Example: Someone posts on the wall in the bathroom something about what not to flush down the toilet.

Response: Punch Susan in the head.
