We’ve all been there, done that-you’re sitting at your desk doing that same old awful, soul-sucking job and you actively imagine the many infinite ways you could tell your lunatic adamant boss “I quit”. For the sake of future recommendations and contacts, you probably write the modest kindest resignation letter that not only sings appraisals of your boss but also thanks your co-workers for all the “good times”. But, some people decide to take the other way down the road and take the resignation game to new heights. Listed below are folks that went all-in on their way out. I personally applaud their efforts.
From going live on television to a music video, these are the ballsy ways some people have quit their jobs:
1. With a very heroic parking job
A personal drive was not paid his monthly salary, so he parked his owner’s car like this and quit. Quite heroic, right?
2. Such a well decorated cake
Chris Holmes decided to quit his job at the airport to follow his dream of becoming a baker. Thus, explaining his resignation letter written on a cake. Fan for a sweet tooth?
3. Quite an impressive window sign
Employers at a Chipotle near Penn State locked the doors and left their resignation in the form of a sign, citing “borderline sweatshop conditions”. Innovative idea of quitting!
4. Perfect error message
A web designer quit his job by coding this error message explaining what happens next. The boss must have been shocked by seeing such a ballsy way of quitting, but even more tensed as to what option to select.
5. Must be a Star Wars fan
Joy Mukharji quit his job by creating something like Star Wars intro, complete with suggestions of having a good time with all his female co-workers. Wait till the end, Mukharji literally cuts to himself, completely naked. Truly need guts for pulling off such a crazy act!
6. Loud and clear
A Walmart employee used the intercom to inform the entire store that he was quitting. Guess he had enough of those low prices.
7. On a live news broadcast
During a live TV broadcast, anchor Charlo Greene quit her job to focus on marijuana legalization. She famously ended her segment on the legalization of marijuana by saying “Fuck it, I quit”.
8. On a flight!
After 20 years of service, Jet Blue flight attendant Steve Slater yelled at an entire plane on the intercom, grabbed a beer and rode the evacuation chute to the tarmac. That’s what I call a heroic exit!
9. Dancing through the office
Sick of her work hours, viral content creator Marina Shifrin quit her job by making a video of herself dancing around her office with direct message “I quit”.
10. On Twitter
Jonathan Schwartz, former CEO of Sun Microsystems, took to twitter with his resignation.
11. Manager quits with a dance number
Manager quits by making a video of himself dancing with sassy choreography to Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby”. Later, he rips off his uniform to reveal a white T-shirt saying “I quit”.
12. Banana suit
A man dressed up as banana quits his job at an insurance company. He was followed by a mariachi band, not sure why he dressed up as a banana in the first place.
13. Famous of all
President Richard Nixon sent a short, curt resignation letter to the Secretary of State on the day he left office.
14. Singing a cappella
This guy quit his job at a coffee shop by entertaining his boss with a cappella song.
15. Live commentary
