A rare sight indeed, the elusive passive-aggressive beast on her haunches, ready to pounce.

Someone I know bad-mouthed me recently. They did it stealthily, in a place and way that they probably thought I'd never catch on to.

I am so much smarter than that, dear bad-mouther. I catch everything. Every damn thing.

That's a pretty weak tactic, in my book.

Next time, how about you say it to my face?

I'd even accept an e-mail.

This person deserves to get called out. Loudly.

But, that's not going to happen right now.
I'll save it, wrap it up in a pretty bow and set it aside for just the right occasion.

Despite my instincts, and despite what I want to say, I'm leaving it at this.
Vague venting.
Vague, passive-aggressive venting.

Shitty. Do they read your blog or you being REALLY passive-aggressive? Is there gonna be a throwdown at WM's place!?

I'm totally up for a beat down. I'm thinking brass knuckles and a bat.

Just remember what The Therapist always tells me:

It's okay to think about digging the hole, just don't buy the shovel.

Yes, details, please! I hope its not someone who pretends to like you. I hate people like that. If you don't like me, don't pretend to. I won't.

It would appear that you have a mighty posse on your side (if you consider a group of lady-bloggers to be a mighty posse. But hey, we talk a mean talk, okay?)

You just let us know who to take out, okay? We'll get right on it.

Hey! I want the details! Who? Ok you don't have to say who. But what? When?

Oh, come ON. Exactly how bad was the bad-mouthing??

I guess I'm gonna have to go google.

How much better does venting feel when everyone wants to take her head off for you?

I'm a firm believer of passive/aggressive mentalities. That way people always know if you like or hate them.

No middle ground.

Thanks for putting up with vague venting, y'all.
Normally I would go for the jugular in a case like this, but the nature of my relationship with the accused makes things challenging...
I was kind of hoping they'd figure it out on their own, but no such luck.
I rarely let stuff like this lie for too long- I expect I will get drunk & yell at them at some wildly inappropriate point, and then I will blog about it, for your enjoyment...
