Sorry that I have not gotten back to you about this subject at all...

how are you doing? how is the family?

Have you looked for information at the local bookstore such as Barnes and Noble?

My husband is majorly passive-aggressive. The hardest part is that it so unexpected and hard to pin down. Like the time I brought home a bunch of books to write a report. I lef them out and he took them and put them in his car. He didnt' tell me even when I called him in panic to ask him if he had seen them.... dozens of other stories. The thing is he can alwasy deny it. No I didn't steal your papers. You always leave things lying around, you lost it. No I didn't write that nasty email to your church leader and you can't prove I did.

Patience and setting boudaries are the only thing that helps. and Luck. i am blessed because my husband is in counselling and acknowledges that he has a problem with being passive aggressive. ...not that it changes his behavior any, but it is a start.

I am violent and agressive when I am angry. We make an interesting pair. I start throwing things and he quietly takes revengs. Actually I've taken an anger management class and I am doing better at controlling myself.

I once had a passive aggressive supervisor who was very mean and even evil, yet in discret and covert ways. These people have an anger issue that has been retained against some problem or authority figure. That's why they take out their anger on innocent nice people they know who will not harm them.

Caution Caution Caution is NEEDED when you deal with these people. They can be potentially dangerous and unpredictable.

I don't know if my brother-in-law has ever been diagnosed professionally with this, but, I believe he may suffer from this disorder.

To me, he always reminds me of a "sneaky weasel" - if that makes sense? For example, if we are at a family function, he will be standing next to me and will whisper something to another person regarding either me or my husband - not loud enough for me to hear the full conversation, but loud enough for me to have heard part of the remark. He does this to everyone in the family, but, I seem to be the only one that will turn around and ask him point blank "what did you say? Want to know?" To which he turns red, tucks tail and runs.

His latest?

He sent out graduation invitations to all of the family for his daughter's graduation - to everyone but us. But, I can guarantee you when the day comes and my in-laws say were are Mr. & Mrs. Zinnie? He will say "oh, I don't know, I guess they didn't want to come..." We have found out that is what he does. Then, my mother/father-in-law call here and jump all over my husband for not attending family functions.

Hope this is helpful to you in some way.

Z.

Thank you all for the input...exactly what I was looking for, life experiences...I looked up the characteristics and wanted to know how this kind of person dealt with relationships.
