A lot of HR is all about communicating, but unfortunately many employees haven’t gotten the memo (there was a memo, right?) about talking to their colleagues.
 
The website Passive Aggressive Notes collects all kinds of notes from around the world, but the office seems like prime note-writing territory. From the standard “The dishes fairy doesn’t work here” to strange lengthy notes accusing the cleaning staff of stealing shoes, sometimes small work problems can escalate into serious conflict.
 
Here are some of HC’s favourite notes:
