What's the best way to hurt passive aggressive people, to turn the tables on them?

Don't take them seriously. At all, ever.

Take everything they say literally and act like you don't understand sarcasm and their little games.

We are to love our enemies and pray for those who despitefully use us, God says.

I play into their aggressive behavior by being hyperbolic in my response

We’re going to hope this individual isn’t a narcissistic person because there are no turning tables with this characteristic type

@Souls Narcissism is a personality disorder. It's unpleasent to be around them, but it's even more unpleasent to be them. People with disorders are quite vulnerable, and more easily hurt than someone who's confident, happy, and doing well in life.

Ignore them.

Don't even acknowledge them unless you have to.

And when confronted, hit them with facts.

@Cinderella1day well I'll give you an boyfriend and I dated for 2 years before I asked him if he wanted to move in with me. His mother always treated him like her baby. So when he moved in with me, she constantly posted on Facebook that she misses him so much and now she's lonely with out him. Saying he's her only baby and he should stay with her. She never once said that to my face, but we were friends on Facebook so she said stuff on there knowing I would see it.

@melissa001 that’s weird I hate when mothers do that. My chicken are flying out the coop after college or whatever reasonable plan they have to support themselves. Maybe it’s time for a dog

You gotta give them a taste of their own medicine

Get away from them if you can
Ignore them .
Passive/aggressive behavior is at its core, driven by either fear of a belief that you are better than them, or by a need for attention, but no positive active way to achieve it by engaging with others in a healthier manner.
Ie - it's all about them.

So you make it not🤷
Be nice to them. They will wear themselves out if their aggressiveness has not target. Retaliating just adds fuel to the fire.
