Sure… I’ve written them.
I’ve received them.
My entirely cynical self has most certainly made fun of them, as well as made fun of myself for writing them…

This book, put together by Kerry Miller, is a really great compilation of some of the most classic passive aggressive notes I’ve ever seen. The subtitle reads: Painfully Polite and Hilariously Hostile Writings. The entire book is scanned images of actual notes, and some of these notes are unbelievably hilarious. The best part is that, periodically, there will be a small “update” note, in regards to the passive aggressive note of the past.

When I sat down, with my cup of chai in hand, to read Passive Aggressive Notes, my mind instantly thought of about 9 people in my immediate circle of peeps who would love this book. Already, just by leaving it on my ottoman for a few days, it’s cover is bent and it’s been manhandled and thumbed through by a dozen, or so, people who only managed through exclaim (through laughter) that they loved this book…

{Christmas shopping hint: It’s a pretty small and portable book. Although not a great book for kids, as you can imagine, this would make an awesome office party gift, stocking stuffer, etc…)
You can see, buy and read more about the book here
