I thought this was very dorky....

Passive Aggressive Ways I Am Rebelling at Work (Due to Lack of Bonus)

1. Refusing to approach Bloomberg terminal.

2. Haven’t gotten haircut in two months.

3. Leaving top button of shirt open. WITH tie. (Bluh-BLAM!!!)

4. Stopped trimming fingernails; also a bit dirty under there. (When finally clipping nails, doing so at work.)

5. Taking notes in meetings of things that irritate you, then rehashing to colleagues. See, “We’re open for business!” or “This year will be remembered as the best BUY opportunity in our lifetimes.”

6. Telling everyone about my workout schedule.

7. Bringing McDonalds into the office. When not stuffing McNuggets into face, eating “healthy” (Subway).

8. Publicly wondering when the fruit basket will be eliminated.

9. After fruit basket is eliminated, reminiscing about the “good times” when there were free bananas, etc.

10. On a down market day, griping about the losses you suffered on the investments you would have made with the bonus you didn’t get.

At my company we have a homepage with news articles about all the great things the CEO is doing.

My passive-aggressive approach is to submit comments on these articles that walk the tight-rope between "this guy really like this company" and "I think this guy is making fun of us."

I do this by crafting a positive response but then I replace certain words with over-the-top praise.

For example,

"Having work for XXXX of the past five years, I have been constantly impressed with Frank's hard work and dedication."

becomes...

"Having work for XXXX of the past five years, I have been constantly impressed with Frank's superhuman work ethic and unquenchable thirst for knowledge."

Yes it makes me feel better.
