9 Passive Aggressive Gifts They’ll Love. I Guess…

(Graphic: Helen Jane Hearn/TueNight)

Ah, the holidays. ‘Tis the season to rejoice, make merry, listen to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” and bite one’s tongue when one’s confronted with the time-tested barrage of unsubtle passive aggressive comments from friends and family.

Well, two can play that game.

In the name of holiday harmony (and your sanity), why not bite your tongue as you wrap the world’s most passive aggressive gift ever? Why say it when you can pay it forward with a gift that does the indirect communicating for you? Why not give something that says you care enough not to say exactly how you feel but not enough to not be somewhat passive aggressive about it in your gift-giving?

What? I was only joking! God. You don’t have to get so upset.

    I really enjoy reading your stuff! And thanks for the much needed laughs.

  2. Remember that people trust real address workplaces more
    than online ventures because contact with the business is more real.
    It is an extremely versatile product that is inexpensive and helps cut back on the use of expensive
    chemicals. While you schedule your work, make sure that you make allowance for cleaning different parts of
    the house on different days.
