Quitting a job usually is not a fun experience for most people. It can often be pretty nerve-wracking. How will your boss react? Will they still give you a good recommendation for your next job? will everyone on your team resent you? A lot of pretty serious questions can come into your mind when you’re getting ready to resign. However, some people decide to make the most of a potentially uncomfortable situation. Instead of submitting a normal resignation letter, thee people have decided to t least get a good laugh out of it. These are the funniest resignation letters on the internet.
Loud & Proud!
In many circumstances, quitting is frowned upon. Depending on the context, quitting a job, a relationship, or some sort of commitment might be considered an act of weakness.
However, quitting an addiction or something that causes pain is often the right thing to do. When Bella handed in her letter of resignation, it seemed that she was extremely proud to have quit, having drawn a cartoon of herself with a rainbow (symbolizing the relief of quitting) hanging over her head.
Sometimes, it’s not how much you say but what you’re saying that counts. When you quit your job, the one thing that you need to make clear is that you are leaving the company; everything else is commentary.
Sometimes it just makes sense to get to the point. A little bit of context goes a long way though. When this person shared the resignation letter on social media, they wrote the following caption: “My ex-manager wouldn’t give me my last paycheck without a resignation letter.”
The Taste Of Resignation
While many letters of resignation on this list are fairly hostile to the companies that each writer is resigning from, not everyone feels bitter when leaving their workplace.
Some people are just moving on, despite having the time of their life at their current job. One person wanted to treat each of their co-workers on their way out of the company and thought of a great way to kill two birds with one stone: write your resignation letter on a box of cupcakes.
5, 4, 3, 2…
Every employee who hates their job enough wishes that they could make their departure as awkward as possible with minimal collateral damage. When Mitch handed in his short, yet devastating, two weeks notice, his boss instantly became paranoid when he read that his fly was unzipped.
Not only that, but Mitch also implied that a self-destructive bomb was attached to the letter, making this read even more uncomfortable. And just when things couldn’t get any more awkward, Mitch wrote a P.S…
People can have such creative minds. When one bored employee was sitting on the toilet one day, he was astounded by the end result and had a huge epiphany: it reminded him of his job.
Unable to ignore the many similarities between his trip to the bathroom and the current state of his employment, he found the most relevant theme for his resignation letter and as he put it, was ready to “flush” the job out of his life.
When you are handing in your letter of resignation, you better have a good reason as to why you are quitting your job. Let’s face it, if you are being attacked by a drunk co-worker and your boss is too lazy to do anything about it, then we think it makes perfect sense to pack your bags and move on.
If a boss cannot take responsibility for their employees, then you shouldn’t have to work for them.
Well This Takes The Cake
Let’s face it: if the employee in question decided to write their letter of resignation on paper, then there’s a good chance that their boss probably wouldn’t have even read it
Well This Takes The Cake
Who wants to read three long paragraphs that are not only confirming an employee’s departure but also how bad the company is? However, take that message and write it on the icing of a cake instead, and you may have just caught your boss’s attention. Mr. Cake’s letter was actually pretty pleasant.
Resign For The Stars
When we think of letters of resignation, we normally think of a long, boring paragraph of words, expressing one’s desire to leave the company they had been working for.
But then there are certain individuals who like to think outside the box, or more specifically, out of this world. There is no doubt though that his boss will never forget him, especially after leaving behind this epic framed picture. Not too sure what the vacuum cleaner’s for though…
In the workplace, one needs the right amount of courage, strength, and audacity to voice one’s opinion without coming across as inappropriate. This also applies during the closing chapters of one’s employment and for many, quitting a job can be the hardest part.
So when this person wrote their letter of resignation on a receipt, they articulated their courage and strength in the crudest way imaginable. In other words, the soon-to-be ex-employee simply had the “cojones” to quit.
When a computer programmer decided to throw in the towel on his job, he wasn’t interested in writing a typical letter of resignation. Instead, he chose to go nostalgic, turning to Super Mario Bros and making his own sequence from the classic video game.
Every time Mario grabs a mushroom, the words “I QUIT!” appear on the screen. Then, at the end of the level, Mario climbs down the flagpole, never to be seen again.
Sometimes, it only takes a few words to hit your message home. In Matt’s situation, he couldn’t stand one more second in that office cubicle he had spent the last three years in.
After so much hard work with such little reward, he felt like his actions over the last few years had said it all. This made his letter of resignation very easy to write. In fact, all it took was a quick trip to the bathroom, a couple of paper towels, and a magic marker.
