Hi Jade, Don’t get me wrong but to wallow in self-pity is the wrong approach. Hard work never hurt anyone.
Greetings from Germany

I want to ask about “Not being rude , but do you EVEN lift , bro?” What does EVEN stand here for?
Do the asker say that lifting is simple and easy?

Hi Jade, I like your videos a lot for being different, and interesting and I think you add value to learning English being more than English.
Some time ago, I wanted to suscribe to leave a comment and I procrastinated for several reasons, but what matters is that I have to say that bugging people egged me on to do it, so it has been worthy. And you did it so well at this video and so classy. My congratulations, you can be proud of yourself.

Thank Jade! Nice lesson.the examples are essential for everyday use.

Passive aggressive language is more usual than it seems and it’s an essential component of spoken speech. Thanks to enquire into that topic.

This is a good way of learning knowing what other person is really telling you about by the way they answer a question. Thank you Jade

I guess that any kind of “softening” is already a warning for passive-aggressive behavior. Note how examples 13 to 17 follow the pattern “softening + but + criticism” (I once heard that nothing someone says before the word “but” really counts). Also, here’s another softening for the list: “just saying” (I feel like it’s often used sarcastically).

Pedro

Really good lesson. Thanks jade

Shkruallah175@gmail.com

Brilliant lesson! So I might better stop talking if every other sentence seems to be aggressive in some way. Oops! (silent aggressive) I wondering what about Buddha.. Actually, I really hate the way he talks.. only joking. :)
Thanks for improving my passive aggressive toolkit, not being funny! ;)

Being ironic is aggressive? Or just being sarcastic mean to be aggressive?

leslielugosi

Hello Jade, thanks for your lesson!
Using such “hot” topics is very useful, I think, because we can reflect on how interact in English in the real life, in common situations, and therefore how to be polite, and understand better people not only with the semantic meaning but with wider shades of the meaning, like “I am good” when really means maybe “I am angry but I don’t want to talk just now”!

Thanks jade.
