Passive Aggressive Notes is a website that features… um… passive aggressive notes. This one was received by a group of three diners who out were having lunch, and were passed a note by a woman at the next table, who signed her name Angela. You can read the whole note at the site, but here is an excerpt.
Please don’t get hurt, but the (3) of U should loose weight. I know it’s hard. It is certainly hard 4 me. But I feel better afterwoords and validated, and accomplished. [sic]
And she left her phone number! Stephanie C. sent in the link and added:
The nerve. I don’t care if she had the best of intentions or the very worst, it was not her place to comment and none of her business in the first place. And the “please don’t get hurt but…” does not excuse her from what she says. It’s like saying “I don’t mean to be mean but…” Yes, yes you do mean to be mean, but you don’t want to think of yourself as mean so you try to write what you’re doing off as something other than what it is – being mean – by premising it with a statement of intention so that if (or when) the other person flies into a murderous rage and cold-cocks you for being an insensitive jerk it’s their fault, not yours. (Sorry about the overwhelming number of coordinating conjunctions in that last sentence.)
I love a girl who knows her coordinating conjunctions, and I couldn’t agree more. FAT PEOPLE KNOW THEY’RE FAT, ANGELA. And thanks, Stephanie!
