Be Aggressive! Passive-Aggressive!

Passive-Aggressive Notes from Roommates, Coworkers, Neighbors and Strangers.

A note I think about posting every weekday: "If you are going to microwave popcorn, please stay in the breakroom while it's popping to make sure it doesn't burn and stink up the whole floor. Thank you!"

Snagged from Sheila O'Malley.

That's why I'm soooooooo glad I don't have to deal with roommates anymore. No need for the passive anymoar. With Jim, when he puts an empty cereal box *back* in the cupboard, I can be agressive-aggressive!

BTW, Miss Dee, you sent me an invitation to something or other on my old email address at canada.com. That's kinda a defunct address now. Could you email it to my new email address on my info page.

Thanks muchly, missy...

Our husbands are so lucky that we are not the kind of gals who keep our thoughts and feelings to ourselves. They wouldn't have married us if they didn't appreciate our outspokenness, right?

And I will resend. I used the address I had in my address book from a while back.

it doesn't bear thinking about
You have to wonder about people who smear feces. If they do that in public, what do they do in private?

I've worked in places with public restrooms and what people did in them was very scary. And I have to admit the ladies' rooms were always worse then the mens'.

Really? I'm surprised. Women seem to be more fussy about bathrooms and ready to complain if things aren't clean. Also, most men I know let their own bathrooms slide long past what I consider liveable. Go figure.

Re: it doesn't bear thinking about
This may be more info than you care to know but... It was amazing sometimes how quickly the woman's room at one place went from totally clean to requiring Hazmat suits for entry. We set up a timer to make sure it got checked at least every 30 minutes during peak dining times. The checker would clean up as needed and I verified it on occasion. Then they would start the timer again.

In 30 minutes that restroom was regularly trashed: paper towels, diapers, feminine products just tossed around not even in the vicinity of receptacles and water everywhere. I would watch the women going in there and well-dressed, upscale ladies turned that bathroom into a sty. I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

Oh, my, Lord.

Don't you wish you could video tape them and post it to Utube. Doesn't it sicken you how people behave when they can get away with it, when they think no one "important" will ever know?

No sense of true self.
