Dealing with everyday frustration is normal for anyone. What becomes a challenge is dealing with various styles of communication. I find that there are only two major types of communicators, those that are direct and those that are passive aggressive. In my opinion, one of the most frustrating types of communication styles is passive aggressiveness. Passive aggressive communicators are non-confrontational individuals, they might come across as pleasant even, but they can often be deadly. If actions could kill, passive-aggressive people are like lethal silent bullets, you don’t even know they are upset or seeking revenge until it’s too late.
