9780061630590: Passive Aggressive Notes: Painfully Polite and Hilariously Hostile Writings

Kerry Miller's hit website features photos of plaintive notes left for people, citing any number of infractions. There's the classic leaving-the-dishes-in-the-sink, the stealing-your-coworker's-food-from-the-fridge, and roommate-vs.-roommate-thermostat-war. Much like PostSecret.com or FoundMagazine.com, once word got out about this fascinating collection online, it quickly developed a cult following. Now, the best of these notes is collected into the hilarious "Passive Aggressive Notes". It's barbed criticism disguised as something else - helpful advice, a funny joke, or simple forgetfulness. The book will showcase notes from the site as well as dozens never before seen in a highly visual treatment that showcases the notes like the personal artifacts they are.

Review:

"We dare you not to laugh at loud at these funny, snarky notes."
-- Redbook magazine, November, 2008

From the Author:

It all began with a first date...and not a particularly good date, either. Apparently, things between this guy and his roommate had gotten so bad that they now communicated almost exclusively via Post-it note. Ah, yes, I said, I know those notes well--my current apartment (where I lived with three other flatmates) had seen its share, most of them about the presence of unwashed dishes in the sink. They were usually signed with love; they were never addressed directly. I should start collecting them, I joked--put them on the Internet or something. Now that would be passive-aggressive.

Later that night--after it became clear that our relationship wasn't going to progress beyond standard small talk--I decided to do just that. And unlike my apartment's approach to dish-washing, the response to passiveaggressivenotes.com was enthusiastic, immediate, and overwhelming. Within weeks of the site's launch, thousands of notes poured in from shared bathrooms, kitchens, cubicles, and parking lots. (Wrote one reader: "Instead of a single note, can I submit an entire person? Like my mother?") This book represents the funniest and most outrageous of those submissions.

--Kerry Miller
