Are These the Most Annoying Passive Aggressive Phrases?

A poll found the most annoying passive-aggressive phrases include:

1. "You're too sensitive."

2. "Why are you so upset?" So that's two that just undercut how someone's feeling.

3. "No offense, but . . ." Which is usually followed by something that IS offensive.

4. "Whatever."

5. "Sure, if that's what you want to do . . ."

6. "You should have known that" or "You should have known better."

7. "I was just kidding."

8. "Why don't you just [blank]?" When the "blank" is something obvious, but not easy.

9. "That was surprisingly good." Like if you just tried someone's cooking, because it suggests their cooking isn't USUALLY good.

10. "I'm fine." Especially when you're obviously NOT fine.
