Ohh, that dirty little . . .

I think that about ruins any chances that her and Justin's brother will get together now.

Maybe Justin is sullen because of the way his brother acts?

Well big surprise that older brother is just as much the passive aggressive but muncher that his little brother is turning into. :roll:

Haesslich, no joke. :wink:

Phew. I love Dawna too. Justin's brother, however, needs to get his anus probed. Without lube.

What a jerk! Nice to know Kestrel has a cool boss and she wasn't fired. I hope Brother Jerk gets his. My best friend started being particularly passive-aggressive recently and pissed off many of her friends, myself included. She pulls that kind of crap again and she'll be looking for a new person for the role of 'best friend'.

Yeah, have to admit, for about a panel there was kinda worried. Be intresting to see what happens if the older brother shows up when Kes is working again. Or if he mentioned it to his younger bro, what the reaction there will be.

It's the clinical term for 'stabbing someone in the back'
More simply Passive Aggressive with smile at you and be civil even when their angry, and then do like big brother did and try to 'get you fired' or 'turn your friends against you' or some other silent nastyness!

It's general smarminess.

If I was in Kes' shoes, if big brother showed up, I'd 'speak when spoken to'. That way if he tries to pull some schitt again, just tell Dawna "Hey, I acknowledge that I did not speak to him, but I had no reason to past the 'official store greeting', and past that I'm keeping my nose clean." Feh.

Then again, I also think about it this way...maybe the reason Justin gets away with being a dick at his jobs is his brother. He defends him to the point of attempting to get people fired...so if the boss fires the silent wonder, then who knows what big bro would pull on them?

Actually, passive/agrressive refers to indirect attacks on a person/idea. Things like going to a potluck dinner with KFC and having someone say "Oh, you bought something instead of making it yourself. Well, every little bit helps." or getting a left-handed compliment like "Well, for someone so inexperienced at technical writing, you did a very good job with the manual." things like that.

I'm not passive/aggressive, I'm reactive/aggressive, so neither of those situations turned out well when I was done... :)

It's going to be fun watching what Kes does for some kind of payback. One thing I've learned (vicariously, mind you) is that you DO NOT piss off a redhead. All three of the redheads that I am blessed to have as friends have taught me this just through watching them dole out their revenge.

Dawna certainly rocks the casbah. I really was worried for the first few panels. "No cookie for you" - hahaha she is the best employer ever. Even better if she usually gives her employees cookies on a regular basis.

My own personal definition of "passive-aggressive:"

So-called "nice" people who are actually closet @$$holes, but are too cowardly and spineless to engage in direct confrontation, thereby necessitating sneak attacks.

A little bitter?

I like to think of passive agressives as being... diplomatic about their anger.

Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Payback is a bitch.

Passive Aggressive statements.

Passive aggressives are usually very calm and cool of course I could be biased being passive agressive myself.
