Post-it notes going hostile

November 5, 2008

Or maybe your lunch has been looted.

What do you do?

Lots of people will vent their anger in a Post-it note -- with lots of exclamation points.

But Kerry Miller says sometimes a blizzard of notes will backfire.

Miller is the author of "Passive Aggressive Notes: Painfully Polite and Hilariously Hostile Writings."

Miller says people think writing a note is the polite thing to do.

Like the time someone left an unsigned note that a young woman's attire was inappropriate for the office.

But Miller says often anonymous notes will just add fuel to keep a dispute burning.
