Looks like a bbc integral news story.
Ooh was that sarcastic? Or just taking the p***?

Steve M I think British humour is far more complex than that. Being sarcastic has nothing to do with being passive aggressive. That's another modern phrase that's annoying.

"It's not clear who came up with the table, although it's done the rounds online for several years - and was first seen by the BBC in 2011 in a blog by Oxfam. "

With the greatest respect I'd suggest they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for a story.

I dislike passive aggressive people with a passion, when the end of the world finally arrives, they will be my first stop on the way out.

All I have to say to a British person saying that stuff is "Bless your heart, you're just the way god made you/"
