"I have noticed the way that everybody now seems to use the word 'disappointed' precisely in the passive aggressive manner you point out. People using the word in this fashion really need to take a good, hard look at themselves and realise that they do not sound like Don Corleone from the Godfather, they sound like David Brent's tedious boss from the office."
