I would prefer

June 4th, 2007 · 17 comments

“I still put my stuff all over his couch,” says Ryan in D.C., who adds that this note is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his “anal-retentive” roommate. Ryan will be moving out of the apartment soon, but (in a final passive-aggressive gesture) says he has stuffed the couch full of candy wrappers for his roommate to find.

I would prefer if things were not left on my couch. Thanks!

    That guy seems like a ridiculous tool! I would stuff his couch too. That’s passive-agressive to the point of nausea. Please punch him in the face before you leave!

      Wow, what an asshole you are. Do you have any friends? I mean, that your mommy doesn’t have to pay?

    Aah the “Thanks!” at the end. It doesn’t get more passive aggressive than that.

    “ridiculous tool,”…? “punch him in the face,”…? hostile. no wonder people are so passive agressive.

    Yes, that IS why it’s a PASSIVE AGRESSIVE note site.

    Clearly not advising him to HURT someone….just be passive agressive right back.

    I may be hostile, but you are completely ANAL.

    Ryan sounds pretty inconsiderate. If the guy doesn’t want stuff on his couch, then don’t leave stuff on his couch.

    maybe he should punch the idiot’s lungs out. (To paraphrase BB.) This requires violence.

    …maybe if his roommate wasn’t so anal expulsive he wouldn’t leave note’s convey his annoyance at the mess he finds in his room…most of these notes aren’t passive aggressive at all…they convey a message, plain an simple…this is not passive aggressive…the person who is passive aggressive wouldn’t let you know what is wrong, this is the hallmark of the annoyance in the relationship.

    Isn’t leaving a note on the couch leaving something on the couch and thus negating the effectiveness of said note?

    My ex MIL only visited a few times. When she blew her nose she would stuff the tissues between the cushions of the couch. Gack! Sums up why the ex is an EX.

    What were they leaving on the couch? I mean if it was used condoms, who could blame the guy? I’d prefer those weren’t left on my couch either.

    “my couch” says a lot, and “i would prefer” is so very annoying. punch him.
