    Wow, he is such a nice guy, always thinking of others. He was so concerned about his roomates that he wants to protect them from typhus. Man, I wish my roomates cared that much about my health.

    I like Matt!
    For a moment, I thought that it was the fridge that had written the note.

    I like this one. I definitely love the sarcasm. One thing to think about…sarcasm as a tool for passive-aggressiveness…

    English speaking people can’t live in Holland? Dutch people can’t write in English?

    When were these laws passed? I overslept this morning, but by golly, I didn’t think I has missed that much!

    I was going to write and say that Matt’s note is really more witty than passive agressive, but then I read Rich’s astute comment above. So, now I’m with Rich. Team Rich all the way. Someone is pulling our collective passive-aggressive leg.

    It IS a bit odd that Matt took a picture of his own note and sent it in… I hope this doesn’t become like that old “America’s Funniest Home Videos” show – where after awhile it was pretty clear that most of the videos were set up. That would really ruin this great site!

    i was wondering when it would come down to people faking their own PA notes…what a sick, sad world.

    Well, I wouldn’t say that he was faking the note.

    I just think the spirit of the site is that you send in examples if you’re the victim or randomly stumble upon a p/a note.

    That way, we can all say, “WTF?” and laugh how crazy people can be over the smallest things.

    I say we boo this man! Boo! Hiss!

    Yeah, he kind of ruined my day, this Matt. It’s like he’s some mastermind, diabolical passive-aggressive genius who wrote the note on the fridge, took the picture, and sent it in–but ultimately the passive aggressive act is against us because it’s fake, and therefore not as fun, and it kind of stopped up the conversation, which really put a damper on my Friday. I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all.

    The only thing that cheered me up after this debacle was seeing the ad right next to the comment box for a waterless toilet for my yurt.

    Groovy, man.

    team yurts with pink twa-leys!

    As for passive-aggressiveness of note at hand – I’m with Andy there too. The note might not be fake, but the spirit is off. *Found* p/aggression is qualitatively in another (betterer) league than user-generated.

    Still, I ain’t coughed up any gems (that’s notes), so there’s that.

    I had to go look up the word “yurt.” Very fun. Next time I’m on a nomadic venture in Mongolia I will be sure to bring my waterless potty.

    Hm… so you guys are saying I write on fridges to get posted on an internet weblog? Interesting way of thinking. What am I gonna do next? Shave my cat and take a pic to get on Icanhascheezburger?

    The note/pic were taken a good time before I stumbled across this site…

    Leave me alone! I’m gonna go be depressed now. At least I can’t get typhus anymore.

    Well, I never said that you wrote the note to create a post, just that you posted your own note.

    Though, the passive/aggressive response is appreciated. :)

    Ah, more and more notes are being posted from people who wrote them themselves… kind of sucks. It’s funnier when they’re discovered.

    Matts passive aggressive comment on his own passive aggressive note is making this a bit too much like that Alanis Morissette song.

    I mean, did was the Ironic song really meant to be ironic because nothing was ironic?

    I think I’ve just gone way off base though.

    Cannot is a word. Can not means something else. You cannot pee out your mouth. You can not eat a fish today if you choose not to do so. Just because there are two words inside the word doesn’t mean they should be separated. Another example would be weekend.

    I love it! When I took a trip to Peru, I was given a Typhoid fever vaccination that had to be refrigerated, and I had to tell my roomies not to be disturbed or worried for my health.

    Also, don’t touch my stuff!
    xoxoxo :)
