Sometimes, anger can be downright funny. Not when you're the recipient of it. Not when it boils inside you like a spicy stew. Not when it directly affects you. But definitely when you can read about and comment on the fury of others.
Before the Internet, we were lucky to occasionally witness some amusing ranting on the bus or in the grocery store; however, with the help of cyberspace and the website Passive-Aggressive Notes we can freely enjoy written tirades from around the planet.
WHY PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE NOTES IS A GUILTY PLEASURE
I have a feeling that you might be thinking, "Why the heck would I be interested in something of this nature? I don't have time...!" And you're probably right. But once you start reading some of the juvenile (and just plain crazy) notes posted on the site, I suspect you'll at least crack a smile.
THE BEST ASPECT OF PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE NOTES
What I find most interesting on this website is the commentary. I tend to only "blurk" (though I've written in once or twice), however--the "regulars" seem to make all the good jokes within the first ten or so comments.
A PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE WARNING
One caveat about Passive Aggressive Notes:
If you are at all offended by "naughty" words or off-color humor, you might want to avoid this site. One word in particular (it starts with "F" and ends with "K"... and it's not "fork") finds its way into almost every entry in some way or another.
