26. My neighbor, perfect example.
Edited on Fri Apr-21-06 04:00 PM by Inland
Really shitty neighbor, plays his music too loud, let's his dog shit all over, but he'll insist that all anyone has to do is come over and let him know that something's bothering them and he'll take care of it.

Of course, that means I've got to wake all the way up and go over to his door, because he can't hear his phone, or find him to talk to him about his dog, and you know what? He's never really all THAT gracious about it, and he just does the same thing next week. And I can go over and let him know about that, too.

In sum, he thinks that he's entitled to do whatever he wants and fuck you--aggressive. But he doesn't dare say so to anyone's face--passive. So he just gets drunk and blasts his stereo as if he has forgotten, and doesn't pick up his dog shit as if he doesn't realize that THAT dog shit is a problem, because he hates all of us and just doesn't have the fortitude to admit it to himself or us. Passive aggressive.
