Working in close proximity with others for long periods of time does not come naturally to many of us.

When you are thrown into a mixture of people who you might have very little in common with other than the piece of carpet you share between the hours of nine and five o'clock, it is perhaps inevitable that, occasionally, tempers will flare and people will fall out.

There are many coping mechanisms for such incidents; grin and bear it, remain positive and upbeat, or merely remove yourself from a situation you sense is escalating. Or, you could do what these people did, and come up with some of the most hilarious passive-aggressive comebacks to seemingly trivial issues.
