I don’t think I’ve ever technically been fired from a job, though I was once hired on a trial basis and not brought on full time after an unfortunate mix-up with the register gave them the mistaken impression I’d stolen $100. Whoops. That’s on me. Sorry, 2010 Blockbuster store, you did what you had to do.
In any case, I have had plenty of jobs that I’ve wanted to quit, though I’ve never done that with a flourish. I’ve mostly been polite and courteous, even when I know I won’t be missed. But I won’t lie, I’ve fantasized about doing what these folks did, and going out with a bit more style.
Here are ten employees who found new and innovative ways to say “I quit,” brought to us by Reddit.
