repost: passive/aggressive notes

Yeah, sometimes I think we underestimate our passive/aggressive tendencies. It’s not enough that you simply don’t honor the tip jar for the dude or chick volunteering their time to work the counter at the Club. There are other ways. Here are a few from long awkward pause.

 We all have that one friend…that one person…who is soooooo passive/aggressive it just kills you. Like they ooze it. You know whenever you engage this person in conversation, you will immediately end up with a headache.

One example of our favorite passive/aggressive things that people do, is when they have a name that is either:

A) Entirely unpronounceable such as: Njkvoighsky (It’s Slovackian)


B) Looks like it could be pronounced one way such as: Smith….but it’s actually pronounced: Smayth

Then they get mad at YOU for not pronouncing it correctly!

If you have a hard last name, understand it maybe pronounced incorrectly. That’s life! Change your name or deal with it. (Unless it’s a direct family member doing the mispronouncing, then you’re entitled to slap them)

Our other favorite example is shown below. Leaving notes.

(The Note Leaver. A new breed of passive/aggressive super hero.)

(Are parenthesis passive/aggressive?)

I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best songwriter of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant, With that being said, I believe there is a profound difference between knowledge and wisdom. Finally, I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better.
