Images of Canberra – That’s mean you’re idiot

By johnboy - 11 February 2009 9

I enjoyed this piece of passive-aggressive notery outside the Lyneham newsagency immensely. So much so that I’ve decided to share it with you.

Got an interesting/ quirky/ funny image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to images@the-riotact.com

There is a great website for passive aggressive notes and emails. I think it’s called passiveaggressive amazingly enough. Anyway Skid can google it for me and put it up.

I used to deal with the owners of lyneham news regularly and their grasp of english is…tentative at best.

“You’re an idiot” is obviously what was meant for all the pedantic people at least their use of the apostrophe is correct unlike a particular steak house sign in civic mentioned on riotact numerous times. Skid can post that one up to no doubt.

Pot/kettle?

It would appear that the writer has only a tangential grasp of English grammar, Pom…

Let’s not cross-thread our antagonisms TM.

Understood JB. I know I was treading on thin ice with that one, but I just couldn’t help it!

I must admit, I did consider installing a similar sign in our garden after some desperado knocked off a couple of 18 month old eucalypts.

I figured making a target of oneself was probably not the best idea under the circumstances.

The smiley face is necessary for full passive-agressive note effect.

Is that a smiley face on the end? Changes the whole tone!
