passive-aggressive notes

I have become completely addicted to this site.

It's called passiveaggressivenotes.com. the notes people send in are hilarious. Once you start clicking through some of them, it's really hard to stop. :)

more people should post notes like this, actually, as cell phones are indeed vexing and insolent. nice choice of adjectives, there.

The pair of notes above is classic -- one person's passive-aggressive tendencies bring out PA in someone else, prompting a good old fashioned note war!

but the one below is awesome on so many levels: the fact that the manager had to program the message into the machine that prints the receipts, the fact that the back-handed pseudo-compliment is so...not a compliment, and the misspelling of 'tries.' classic.

it also makes me wonder: in what sense is she 'slow?' after all, she is called their 'special' employee of the month... (i've worked with a few 'special' people over the years, and believe me, they need all the encouragement they can get. :)
