Sassy & Satisfying Moments Of Passive Aggression

Good communication is important. As we grow older, we learn that it's usually best to be direct when we have an issue with a person or their behavior. Simply saying "Please wash the dishes, you're 35 years old" should impart a clear message that the oblivious or callous party can understand. Sometimes, however, these direct requests don't make it through to a person. Or you don't know them well enough to have an adult conversation. 

That's where passive aggression comes in. 

While we don't recommend taking this approach with a significant other or family member, sometimes a passive aggressive jab is what you need to a) feel better about the issue and b) get through someone's thick skull. And sometimes, these moments, notes, and signs bring amusement and levity to real problems. For everyone except for the recipient, that is.

Twitter Thread: Chuck E. Cheese Worker Conducts Behavioral Study Using Arcade Games

While Chuck E. Cheese has gotten attention for filing bankruptcy and for their sneaky Pasqually's Pizza debacle, we think this Twitter thread involving the chain is far more interesting. Twitter user @Professor_Palmer took to the social media site to announce that for the past few weeks he's been conducting secret behavioral studies on unsuspecting Chuck E. Cheese game players. The experiments are rather simple, and involve adjusting the use of lights and sound in an attempt to better understand what draws people to - or away from - arcade games. The results? Human beings are really, really, easily manipulated. While this isn't the most shocking insight on our kind, seeing Cary Palmer spell it out in such a fun (and thorough) way has been incredibly informative. And very entertaining. 

Fascinating and informative twitter thread from chuck e. cheese employee who conducted behavioral study using sounds and lights in games to see what people respond to | Professor_Palmer @CaryPalmerr The last few weeks I've begun conducting my own behavioral study in secret. I have been adjusting games at Chuck E Cheese and recording the subconscious response of guest interaction over the week. I've discovered some pretty interesting things.

'Are You In The Right Headspace' Memes Parody Another Insensitive Text Template

Remember that extremely callous and heavily mocked text template from a couple weeks ago? It seems that some more aspiring Twitter shrinks are looking to dethrone the "I'm At My Emotional Capacity" text template as the most insensitive way to communicate with someone you care about. The latest culprit in oblivious and hurtful communication comes from @YanaBirt, who took to Twitter to offer up a way to drop news that could hurt a friend in a conscientious way. 

 "Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?"

Most people on Twitter seem to agree that this is a terrible move, especially for people with anxiety. Nobody likes a "We need to talk" moment, and this is one that's dressed up being thoughtful. While we appreciate the outcry against this borderline-manipulative sentence, we appreciate the sassy and hilarious memes the text has created even more. And we've put together the very best examples just for you.
