I Heard You the First Time...
"I heard you the first time."
To me, those are the six most disrespectful words ever spoken. And the speaker knows it. The passive-aggressive treatment is filled with contempt and is contemptible.
Passive-aggression is the worst type of aggression there is. It's fighting dirty. There is no remedy for it -- no recourse. It creates a hostile environment for everyone around the passive-aggressive individual. The passive-aggressor demoralizes everyone else, while trying to look superior. It always works. I detest it.
Our passive-aggressive co-worker has gone on an extended vacation, and the first thing everyone noticed today was how wonderful the atmosphere in the office was without her there. Everyone felt as if they could just be themselves. Our passive aggressive co-worker has gone away, and we're the ones having a holiday.
