We’ve all quit a job at some point. Most of the time, it’s fairly uneventful. A little notice, maybe some chats, a polite handshake and you’re out the door and onto something else.
But sometimes, you gotta do a little more than that. Sometimes, for better or for worse, you just gotta go out in style.
That’s what the people in these examples from Reddit did. A few were on good terms with their former employer, some were obviously very much not so, and some maybe just wanted to have a little fun and leave a memorable mark that their coworkers would remember them for.
Whatever the reason, it’s passionate, it’s genuine, and we’re here for it.
11. The TP resignation
(You may need to click the post to see the entire thing, it’s worth it.)
10. This sincere consolation
You win some, you lose some. And by “some,” I mean me.
9. This airing of grief
Farewell, Alex. We hardly knew ye.
8. This unexpected error
Or maybe it wasn’t so unexpected, considering his treatment.
7. This thoughtful letter
“I do not doubt for a second that you are the devil in disguise.” is just a wonderful punch of a line.
6. This bottle of the hard stuff
That is wonderfully heartwarming, actually.
5. This cake
But is it a lie?
4. This “effective immediately” resignation
The job ain’t worth all the pain.
3. This meal ticket
Um, order up, I guess.
2. This custom greeting card
That’s the only reason I’m here, after all.
1. This very detailed cake
Sticking a little plug in there at the end is a nice touch.
