You know what its like to be treated passive aggressively.
You’ve probably done it to other people.
“Yes sir, will do.” And then you do nothing and hope he forgets.
“Sorry sir, slipped my mind, I’m on it.” Wait again, hoping for other stuff to take priority.
Resist cooperation without actually saying, “No.”
When someone does it to you, it’s dishonest.
When you do it to someone else, it’s dishonest.
Don’t do it, and don’t tolerate it.
Passive aggressive behaviour is the same as lying
