What did they do or say to you?

Did they get under your skin?

Of course. Who hasn't? It's pretty common. I won't elaborate verbatim but it's a very unappealing trait to exhibit and comes across as very whimpy and whiney.

Yes, my mother is passive-aggressive. This is taking an offensive position via omission, am I right? Not only that, she excels at denial.

Everyone has met a Passive Agressive person. They're called women. Catty women at that. Catty women who don't have cajones.

I do it now and then too, especially when I know coming right out with it will cause a meltdown for someone. But I can't stand doing it so it would be much easier if some could just learn to communicate.

That's true but I know just as many men who do it. My ex, my b'f and many guys I've worked with included.

I'm quoting myself. LOL I just wanted to say, I think I was confusing walking on eggshells with passive-aggressive here. I do walk on eggshellls now and then.

Hell, I had a business partner like that. It was hell on earth. I finally showed her the door. All my clients after a couple of months asked, "By the way, where is Karen?" I said, "Oh, she doesn't work for the firm anymore." "Oh. Okay. Well, anyway, back to the matter at hand...." In short, she wasn't liked by anybody at all.
