Different people have different ways of dealing with their anger. But I think many people would agree that a carefully crafted note wins the award for “most entertaining”—at least for those uninvolved in the fracas.
And the internet is the obvious hotspot for people to post their favorite examples of this particular form of passive aggressiveness.
Check out some of the best and most creative examples (and take notes if this is your way of settling disputes).

“don’t touch THE…
…ARE You Dumb?”
“The way you pulled in makes me wish your father had pulled out.
Every single person ever born.”
If I see you neglecting to pick up your dog’s poop I’m going to throw it at you.
I have good aim.

“This is a recording of you having sex from my bedroom at 4:27 am this morning.
I HEAR EVERYTHING AND I JUST WANT TO SLEEP.

“Compost means compost, not recycling.
Don’t be an anal bead.”

“LOOK BOB I’VE PAINTED MY FENCE “
So whether you’re having problems in the parking lot, in the office, or at home, a carefully crafted note is always the perfect way to make a statement.
