If you’ve ever come across a Southerner who says “Bless your heart” to your face, congratulations, you’ve just been insulted in a very sneaky, backhanded way! It’s the equivalent of patting you on the head like a child and dismissing you like the dummy they think you are.
But, as sweet with words as Southerners are, the best verbal hit-and-run tactics don’t actually use any words at all.
Check out these 35 passive-aggressive neighbors who are skilled masters at cutting to the chase in hilarious, non-verbal ways.
1) The Finger
Before we invented language, everyone was gesturing with their hands to communicate their thoughts. Looks like we’ve come full circle!
“The HOA in my friend’s neighborhood recently threatened her neighbors with a fine if they didn’t hide their trash cans, even though they’ve been in the same spot for over a decade. This is their solution.”
2) The Arctic Cold Front
I’m pretty sure that’s what winter coats are for. This pup looks pretty comfy to me!
“My neighbors complained that its too cold for my dog to be outside all day during the winter. I sent them this.”
3) Canadians Eh-holes
But they’re nice eh-holes. This person was kind enough to use smiley-faced Bandaid to stick the note the wall.
“To the person who stopped the washer in the middle of my wash cycle and took my clothes out just to wash yours… Yeah, you’re an ***hole! Unfortunately for you, so am I. You can find your wet clothes frozen outside in the snow. Any problems? Come see me in 301.”
