Passive aggression is so much better than actual physical aggression. Just ask Lexi Magnusson who lives in Washington with her husband and four children. Recently, she had a new neighbor move in across the street, and when she explained why they’d moved there from Oregon, she realized that they probably weren’t going to get along.
As Magnusson explains on Facebook, “our new neighbor told us that she moved her family here because her kids were too exposed to the ‘gays and transgenders’ in Oregon.” According to Magnusson, the neighbor then went on to explain “how sick she was of seeing people ‘making it okay.'”
Rather than punch her in the face like most of us would, Magnusson decided to troll her this Christmas. How? With 10,000 Christmas lights, of course.
In a caption alongside the Facebook post, Magnusson explains why she decided to put so much effort into the display.
“Since regular aggression leads to assault charges, I went with passive aggression. 10,000 lights later:”
Magnusson explained in the comments section that all her other Christmas lights are white so that they’ll be no mistaking what the hedge represents. And according to Magnusson, the two are no longer on speaking terms:
“Also, I did say something to her then. I wasn’t mean, but it was enough that she won’t wave at me when we pass in our cars. Which has forced me to make my waves to her more and more exaggerated each time.”
Magnusson’s Facebook post has received more than 13,000 likes and 1,800 shares since it was posted over the weekend. And everyone, minus her neighbor, seems to be loving it.
“This is the best thing I’ve seen in forever,” one commenter wrote.
While another neighbor said they were going to take things to the next level.
“It looks awesome, and you are seriously the best neighbor ever. I am going to order that Rainbow flag for us to hang on my side of the house that faces hers.”
