    So why do you say "Yikes?" Well, yes it is immature and it is unhealthy and not productive, if you want my opinion.

    Dr Buddy Rydell: There are two kinds of angry people: implosive and explosive. The explosive is the customer that keeps on yelling at the cashier for not taking his coupon. The implosive is the cashier that keeps calm day after day till she snaps and murders all the people in the store. You are the cashier...David Busnick: Oh no! I'm not the cashier! I'm the guy that's hiding behind the frozen foods section dailing 911!

    Why don't you confront the person directly instead of being passive aggressive?

    I often get accused of being, in turns, aggressive, and passive-aggressive.
    If I engage, I am seen as aggressive.
    If I decline to engage, I am labeled passive-aggressive.

    I can be frighteningly aggressive. I have survived over two hundred real combats in my life.
    I choose, lately, to not engage in aggression. After all, a man, as he ages, can not be spending every waking hour fighting.
    People often attempt to engage me in debate, on this very forum. I consistently decline. Is that passive-aggression?
    It is my choice not to be combative, since it serves no useful purpose. I am usually prepared to discuss, which is different.

    So: passive-aggression is not so much immature as pointless, possibly cowardly, never useful.
    But like so many other labels: it is mostly mis-applied, and used aggressively against a perceived lack of aggression.

    Because I hate him. I don't want to talk to him.
