This site was mentioned in the September issue of Glamour. It sounded interesting so I thought I'd check it out. Hilarious! These are just a few examples of some passive-agressive notes that were left for people. My favorite is the one directed at a lazy apartment dweller who doesn't clean up after his dog. Subtle.

wow! these are bold! i've come close to writing such messages in past apartments i've lived in.

but then i always recalled my mother's advice to never say negative things in writing—only in person.

I agree with Georgia, these are pretty bold! I think it all comes down to people hating face to face confrontation, and thinking writing it out makes it better...but in the long run it only makes it worse.

Pretty funny, though!!! Drama, drama, drama!

HAHAHA!! I love these. My friend and I once had a TERRIBLE roommate that would always leave notes similar to these. Of course we had to leave some in response mocking her passive aggressiveness. classic.

I love them too! I know they're bad, but they're funny, and I think sometimes the people try to be to get their point across.

I once had a roommate that left a note on the fridge for me and the other roommate regarding the spitting of toothpaste gobs in the bathroom sink. Rather than just turn to us and ask us if we could refrain from this behavior, she chose to post a bulletin and get her point across in a much more passive-aggressive manner. So I have a real appreciation for these kinds of notes :)

The dog poo made me laugh - that MUST have got the point across!
