Some of us hate our jobs, others completely despise it. When it comes to that moment where we decide to submit a resignation, we tend to dramatize it in our head and then chicken out in reality so that we don’t completely burn bridges. Not this woman though. Having had enough of her bosses unrealistic demands, she composed this simple but cute video, telling her boss (and the world) that she quit.
The video gained over 7 million views in the matter of four days (move over, Psy). However, she wasn’t the only one to pull a bold move like this. Here are some other epic and sometimes hilarious resignations that were pulled off.
WRITE IT ON YOUR CHEST
With a dramatic entrance, this guy steps up in the company cafeteria to make the grand announcement.
SAY IT OVER THE PA
Air stewards get a tough deal sometimes, having to deal with rude passengers for up to 14 hours at a time. So it was pretty understandable when this guy went slightly berserk after a passenger told him to “F*** off” for telling her to be seated and not take her bags out before the aircraft has come to a complete stop was landing.
He then went over to the tannoy and yelled at her “To the motherf***** who just told me to f*** off, f*** you. I’ve been in this business 20 years. And that’s it, I’m done.” Then, he proceeded to grab a can of beer from the kitchen, deploy the emergency exit chute, and slide down calmly before walking to his parked jeep and heading home….
…where he was later arrested. But still, epic!
WRITE IT IN A GAME
If you have the skills, you could always write your own Super Mario game like this guy go all in-your-face with your message. Go ahead, play it for yourself here .
SAY IT IN THE VATICAN
How many people can say they quit from being the Pope? Um… like no one in the last 600 years, maybe? Pope Benedict the XVI ruffled many a feather with his announcement that went something like:
“After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.
I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.”
Or in other words…
“F*** this shit, I’m done!”

CONFESS THAT YOU WERE FIRED
In a hilarious and blatantly honest stint by Groupon ex CEO, Andrew Mason, sent out an email to all his employees that read:
“After four and a half intense and wonderful years as CEO of Groupon, I’ve decided that I’d like to spend more time with my family.
Just kidding – I was fired today. If you’re wondering why… you haven’t been paying attention.”
