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.

Reviews promised I'd 'laugh out loud' at the notes in this book. I didn't. A small amount of the content is mildly amusing at best, and there is plenty of bad language too. That in itself wouldn't have stopped me buying it, but it's worth mentioning in case you were thinking of purchasing this book for a sensitive soul.
I bought it as a gift for a friend and will be sending it straight to a charity shop.
A review on the cover of this drivel claims it to be deliriously funny, well I think that is about as far from the truth as possible. Make no mistake this book is an abomination and possibly the worst book I've ever read, and I shall put my hands up and say " Yes I got caught ". So good people of the world let my mistake be your lesson. If you want to waste an hour of your life then pick your nose or scratch your backside, there will be much more joy to be had.

This is a great collection of notes ranging from the creative to the ridiculous that will have you laughing with each turn of the page(I personally love the flow-chart for office coffee mug cleaning and the pad-locked microwave). I would strongly recommend this for anyone with a sense of humor, or as a gift for anyone you think might have one!
