I feel it's offensive and passive agressive behavior. Have you ever said, "I know you took the time to come to see me/us, but I just don't want any company today. Maybe you could call me tomorrow and we'll set up a time to get together." It's truthful, kind, and handled in a mature way. You, and many others, may find it funny but I doubt you'd feel that way if someone hung that on their door and you dropped by to say "hi." But as they say, "opinions are like noses...everybody has one."
Um...excuse me? So many things wrong with this person! Let's count them, shall we?
- This is my blog, my home, and my sign. If you don't like what it says, you're welcome to leave.
- Sometimes people just don't respond to "nice". Sometimes you just can't get the person to leave, without being "passive aggressive".
- Guess what? I think it's funny and so do the seventeen comments before yours from people with an actual sense of humor.
- Get a life.
I've seen a similar sign for sale in Hallmark. I had no idea that Hallmark was offensive and passive aggressive. Who knew?!
As Michelle on Full House would say "Oh Puuuleeeeeeeeeze." I never answer my door (well, since the paparazzi started camping out on my lawn). I thought the sign was funny. Its her house she can do what she wants (duh). Just like you Miss Anonymous can put up a sign on your front door that says "Caution, enter at your own risk. I am perfect and am probably going to judge the crap out of you. I am also chicken pants and dont usuallyre attach my name to my critiques, so I probably wont say it to your face but to everyone else in the neighborhoood. Consider yourself warned"
What do you say?
