Passive aggressive co-worker. Coffee cup edition.

One of my co-workers is very passive aggressive. He loves typing up notes on his computer and printing them out, mostly in the kitchen which he thinks is his own personal kitchen. This week PA co-worker is really pushing it.

On Monday I come into work and there are coffee mugs on the kitchen table. PA co-worker saw the mugs in the sink and rather than put them in the dishwasher PA co-worker moved the mugs to the kitchen table, which is further than the dishwasher.

Yesterday there were no more disposable coffee cups next to the coffee machine. Someone took the last one and did not walk the five feet over to the shelves to replace them. Annoying? Yes, but PA co-worker did not replace the coffee cups, oh no, PA co-worker went into his office and typed up a message to place on the kitchen counter. The message read "hmmm something is missing here" with an arrow pointing to the empty spot where the cups should be.

I should let you that I can be passive aggressive too and so I wrote my own note that said:

"In the time it took you to type up this note you could have just replaced the cups. I managed to write this note and replace the cups."

Was I over the top? Maybe, but really just replace the cups. PA co-worker spent more time on that note than it would have taken to just get the cups which are in the same room less than 5 feet away. I shall report back if there is a response note. I don't plan on a rebuttal if there is but I don't think PA co-worker can help himself.

*UPDATE* he thought it was my boss so he didn't respond.

  1. I can see note after note of the same response much like a mirror in a mirror.

    If so you might just end with a note that says "You're a Jerk!"

    1. Good idea. I think I'll add "lazy" onto it. "You're a lazy jerk".
