    My wife and I were discussing the meaning of "passive-aggressive" and I was trying to give a good example (a character she would recognize.) Hit me up with your favorite!

    Nothing more passive aggressive than constantly being harangued for TPS reports.

    Have me over for dinner. She'll get a good idea of what it is before we're finished the appetizer.

    Bob Benson can be passive-aggressive like a boss. If Robert Greene were to write the 48 Laws of Power today, he'd have to dedicate a chapter to Benson.

    Tony Soprano's mother in the show is extremely manipulative, often using passive aggressive techniques.

    In an episode of King of the Hill, Kahn has to get his TPS reports in. I thought they were a real thing after that... until I remembered Mike Judge made both of them.

    On that note, do yourselves a favour TB and watch Silicon Valley.
