20 Of The Most Passive-Aggressive People Of All Time

Entertainment, Funny, Lists, Shocking, Weird

Passive-aggressiveness is one of the most frustrating personality traits ever. It is defined as: denoting a type of behavior or personality characterized by indirect resistance to the demands of others and an avoidance of direct confrontation, as in procrastinating, pouting, or misplacing important materials. Sounds annoying, right? It is! Sometimes the passive-aggressive path is the easier one to take because being actively aggressive will get you in trouble, maybe even arrested! But there’s no doubt that the passive-aggressive route isn’t always the quickest or easiest, which these people have proved. Here are 20 people who took the passive-aggressive route which ended in hilarity.
