16 of the most passive-aggressive things that ever happened

Polite but totally drenched in bitterness.

ARE YOU THE kind of person who will never, ever confront an issue? You know, you just let it lie or maybe post a little note with a smiley face to try and change it with some undercurrent of begrudgery.

Well, bask in the glory of these passive-aggressive people who know how to get things done:

1. This person really got their point across

And it’s horrible to look at.

2. “To make space for one more car”

3. “I stopped by. Cleaned your dirty dishes. Sorry I missed you, Mom.”

Seriously, that did not need to be spelled out.

4. Now, this is the way to get them back

And quite the retort as well.

13. As if the actual sign wasn’t good enough

We’re trying not to imagine what happened that made this sign necessary.

14. This is just straight-up insulting

16. The lesson is: you do have to tell people things are wrong, and usually a sign is the best way
