The All-Time Funniest Passive Aggressive Notes Written by Annoying People
Ah, passive aggression: the way that people who are too scared to talk to your face get what they want. All of us have experienced it, from Mom cleaning up after you but doing it angrily to a housemate who leaves notes instead of having conversations. But some passive-aggressive peeps truly take it to another level. They don't just use passive aggression: they take it to an art form. We've found the best examples of these passive-aggressive peeps, leaving notes on microwaves, shaming people in text, and treating us all like we're five-year-olds in need of basic parental influence. And boy howdy are they truly hilarious. Come with us on a journey of passive-aggressive notes from extremely annoying people. Laugh. Enjoy. Because you are not on the receiving end of these notes and that makes life good. Because somewhere out there, there are people who actually think this sort of thing will work.
Let's start with a truly astounding example of passive aggression.
This one goes so far that it may just cross into aggression, but it does include the hallmark of passive aggression: refusing to communicate clearly and directly.
Why respond to something directly when you can subtweet all day long?
Is it subtweeting if it’s on Facebook? Who knows, but we do know that this is some next level passive aggression.
Here's a way to really up the level of shade in your notes.
Give it strong religious overtones. Include little jabs like “basics” to imply that this is basic knowledge that everyone should understand.
You do not have to be a human in order to send passive aggressive note! Even apps can do it.
If you want to add a little zing to your notes...
Definitely include whatever offended you in the first place. Put it somewhere public. That’ll teach em.
Or better yet use the offending item to send the message.
Think of all the time the person spent making this when they could have just cleaned up the dang beans.
One of the fun things about passive aggressive notes is that they allow no opportunity for communication.
Which means you get to make all kinds of assumptions about the person who offended you and their motives.
It's also good to sign your notes, but not with any truly identifying information.
“The Management” is all you get because you are children. Children I say!
If a note doesn't work you can take it further.
All you have to do is pump your breast milk and put it in a coffee creamer container. Wait no that’s absolutely wild no one should ever do that.
Sometimes you have to get passive aggressive though.
If they just won’t respond to you signing your name repeatedly, you have to play dirty.
Sometimes the note can turn into a nice little conversation.
Look at that smiley face. Everyone’s having a good time here, right? No one’s feeling aggressive?
If you can't write your own passive aggressive notes, storebought is fine.
They even come in bumper sticker format so you can be randomly angry at every person on the road.
No one is safe from trash duty.
Why would you want your hallway to smell like garbage anyway?
Professionalism? Who needs it.
This university uses its Instagram to throw shade at students. That’s way better than professionalism.
Did you know that there's a wrong way to be a person?
You have to socialize with strangers or you’re fake. Now you know.
This passive aggressive note doesn't even have a recipient!
It’s simply screaming anger into the void. It’s truly a piece of art.
Sometimes it feels like management is a little controlling.
I wonder what gave that impression. It’s probably nothing.
It's possible this ad didn't mean to absolutely roast the people who read it.
But in its own passive aggressive way it made everyone who saw it feel truly awful.
Shame is the right way to get people to stay with your service, right?
Passive aggressive shame. A proven technique.
The internet can be a tough place though.
Like when you share your art and someone leaves “constructive criticism” that’s actually just mean.
Well, this escalated quickly.
If you don’t go to the zoo with mom right now it’s the same as saying you don’t love her, and she’ll know when she dies.
The poor pumpkin...
This person really went the extra mile to not only write out their note, but also wrap it in plastic so it could sit outside for those pumpkin killers to see.
Look, I get that cleaning is a tough job.
But this seems like a bit much. Especially when you include the weird smiley face.
This is a new one.
This post is being passive aggressive. Nice job inanimate object, but my father can express his disappointment on his own.
Is this a kind gesture or a message?
The world may never know, but at least the person didn’t have to take their own lights down. Score.
Even gifts can be a message.
A nice collection of “how to be a good leader” books is the perfect gift for that boss who makes your life a living hell.
Ok listen up THIEVES.
This sign written on a cardboard box is definitely going to make you shape up. It’s very officially and quite scary.
Do you think they write this on every carton of milk?
Maybe they should design a new product with lines to indicate where people should buy new milk. I’m sure it would be a hit.
No one will ever be better than Moms at passive aggression though.
I bought you gifts but I know you don’t want them and I know you don’t like me but I love you anyway Merry Christmas.
And if it's not moms throwing passive aggression...
Then they’re receiving it, because everyone has thoughts on how people should parent.
There's a new Netflix show in town...
And it is perhaps the most binge-able yet.
Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.
The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.
But it isn't just about the tigers and lions...
It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America’s big cat community… and we cannot get enough.
There was a lot of drama over the years...
And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her. Yikes.
The show takes things to a whole new level...
And it has already been branded as “bonkers” by viewers but that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t binge-worthy.
Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?
And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?
But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...
And when Joe’s life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.
Joe is an openly gay man...
And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn’t at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.
And after this marriage tragically fell apart...
Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.
And last year, things took a turn for the worst.
Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.
He hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...
But the FBI became involved and they thankfully managed to put a stop to this dangerous plan.
Many viewers believe that Joe belongs in prison after his alarming behavior...
And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.
The memes have been flooding in...
And even though this is poking fun at real-life events, we cannot get enough during our COVID-19 lockdown. You can read the full list of all the best Tiger King memes at the end…
And we must say...
Tiger King couldn’t have possibly come at a better time.
And it seems there's still more left in the canon...
There have been endless rumors about a supposed extra episode of the show.
Luckily for us...
The rumors are true! Netflix confirmed the news of the hotly-awaited extra episode today.
The new episode is titled The Tiger King and I.
According to the streaming service, it will feature interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.
The episode will be hosted by Joel McHale.
And is being dubbed an “after show” to the hit series.
Fans are excited by the news, to say the least.
Our prayers truly have been answered.
Watch the teaser below:
The episode will drop on April 12. But if you can’t wait until then, scroll on. We’ve got all the best of the internet’s memes – and they’re truly hilarious.
