There's one perk of being a freelance writer: working from home in the comfort of my yoga pants while listening to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" on repeat.
All with nary a concern that I might offend the entire office simply by using the microwave. Imagine the people that have to go to the office and deal with ... PEOPLE.
That's when the passive-aggressive behavior kicks in, and kicks in hard. But it also results in some hilarity, such as these classic responses to others' notes:
Then there's apartment life, where the fight for parking, the neighbors having loud sex, and community trash collection cause people the same sort of rage.
So what do people do when they experience this sort of anger, frustration and stress? Why they confront the offenders, of course! No. No they do not do that.
They send passive aggressive notes and become MY PEOPLE. Then people respond to those notes in similar fashion and also become my people.
Even though I don't actually want to work around people. Shrug.
