Overcoming Passive Aggression: How to Stop Hidden Anger From Spoiling Your Relationships, Career, and Happiness

Submitter: This isn’t exactly an awful library book, but it’s unusual for me to receive a damaged item that makes me laugh out loud at the Reference Desk!
Holly: You’re right – the book itself is a great choice for a public library. I guess it didn’t work out so well for the patron, though! Was it returned in the book drop this way, or found on the shelf? That’s REALLY passive aggressive if it was actually on the shelf like this! This reminds me of a patron years ago who sheepishly returned a book to the library about how to train your puppy, and the book had been completely destroyed…by her puppy.
