Re: ••• What Does "Passive-Agressive" Really Mean? •••

A backstabber. 

Someone who gives a thinly veiled insult then says they were only kidding.

Someone who sets you up to lose your cool, then asks why you are so upset.

Someone who will agree to a plan, then sabbotage it.

It's good Suzie, but honestly the dismissive posts on this thread are very telling imo.

Re: ••• What Does "Passive-Agressive" Really Mean? •••

Another example -  

Supervisor/boss assigns work to worker

Worker doesn't want to do it but says notihng.

Worker tnen makes many trips to sup/boss asking for clarifications.

Sup/boss might reassign work because of this and if not worker isn't thorough so boss won't do that again.

All the while the worker feigns frustration because doesn't understand work all the while saying "Im so sorry to bother you again but I want to make sure I get it right."

Partly that your comment is a little passive agressive, and so is mine.

Three perfect examples that define it right here in this forum.

 

And yes, it IS tossed around too often around here.

Tossed around much too often...LOL.
