Classic passive-aggressive behavior. Wait until you see what he does behind your back.
Yep. Passive-Aggressive behavior is a lot of fun to deal with. Try one of them with it in your family. By the time you figure out what they’re doing, it’s years later, they’ve taken advantage of you until you’re ashamed of yourself for allowing it. They hate you for being so weak, and show it with blatant disrespectful speech AT you while no one else is listening but you, then they top it off with being stunned that you aren’t still kowtowing to them and theirs; add to that sneaky, humiliating behavior toward you that you don’t figure out until several months later.
I’d much rather a person would step forward like a man instead of using sneaky, nasty methods to *zap* me and apparantly thinking they can still hide what they’ve done from “stupid, uncool” me and remain “Mr. Popularity” with me and everyone else (while laughing uproariously up their sleeve at what they got away with doing to me). Thinly veiled hostility to me is much worse than them simply cutting off all contact in my opinion. I suppose that isn’t as much fun for someone who obviously thinks they’re so “special”. - At this point, it’s sort of fun to watch this person puzzling over why I’ve suddenly quit jumping throught hoops.
