I just couldn't help post this because it may be my next hub so... I asked my husband (who is a cook) if he would mind making me a burger with mushrooms & swiss. He didn't really want to but he did anyway. About 10 minutes later he presents me with a DOUBLE cheeseburger dripping with cheese & mushrooms. I have NEVER made myself a double burger and he knows it (together 10 years now). Can we say passive aggressive? What are some examples of Passive Aggressiveness that you've experienced (or dished?)

He did it again! Only this time he asks if I need anything from the back room. Thank you, I'd love some wine. He brings bottle & no glass. OK! I've been chill all day & dealing with this but I might have to get aggressive on him. GRR
merej99, Why not just ask him if everything is okay? Maybe there's something bothering him.

I believe you can get to the bottom of this by calmly asking "Are you frustrated?" "Upset?" Get him to open up.
dashingscorpio - women are just as passive aggressive. Anytime you send they're angry and they say they're "FINE". Or if you say, "honey, can you get me a beer on your way back?" and she shakes it before handing it to you. Stupid stuff like that.
Valid points, However (men) do not refer to women as being "passive aggressive". They either take them at that word when they say they're "fine" or they really don't put a lot into trying to (figure out) if there is a "hidden meaning".
