The modern office is the best place for passive aggression. We are no longer allowed to beat minions with jagged broom-handles, nor are we allowed to stand over a colleague and berate them soundly with a volley of fitting, if unhallowed, epithets.
However, passive aggression is alive and flourishing in every office up and down the country - notes on microwaves, snippy emails, post-its left on the computer keyboard.
Many of these can take the form of anonymity - post-its are perfect for this.
Two of my favourites include a post-it left on my keyboard by the cleaner/Facilities: "Please don't feed the mice".
This referred to my leaving a box of cookies on my desk.
The second was an a4 sheet of paper sellotaped to the fridge, which read:
"Dear 'Bounty' Thief.. you know who you are"... which you can read for yourself below.
It's a doozy - no doubt written by the same person who, four years ago, complained about the theft of a White KitKat, which resulted in the whole Barn Owl Incident. More on that in another post.
