It's worse than passive-agressive. It's passive-obnoxious.

Ha! Guilty as charged, though in my defense... I got nothing.

I was too lazy to spell out the reference so I kopped out.

Waiting on hold, getting tired of waiting on hold and finally press 1 to be called back at this number. Hang up only to be instantly called back, excitedly pick up only only to be sitting on hold again!!  >:( >:(

The question, "Do you mind to do...?"

There's no clear answer; theoretically, Yes should mean I MIND and I won't do it, And No should mean I DON'T MIND and I will do it.
But, many times people interpret it the opposite, as if the question was "Can you do..."
So you always have to answer with a full sentence like "No, I don't mind, I'll do it"

That's all fine and dandy for "Do you mind passing the soda?",
but how does that work for "Do you mind picking up milk on the way home from Shachris tomorrow?" just ignore the question for now and show up with the milk the next day?!  ???

What about, "do you want to go to my sister's house for shabbos?"

You can add a stop if you have a specific route you'd like.
