Most people would do their best to avoid burning bridges when leaving a job, even when they can’t wait to get the hell out of there. Most, but not everyone.
One disgruntled employee of an anonymous firm decided to dispense with the pleasantries and wrote an incredibly sarcastic resignation letter to announce his or her impending departure to the bosses.
It is unknown exactly where the letter was written or by whom, but it was penned on April 24 and posted on Reddit where it immediately went viral.
1. A Reddit user wrote this sarcastic resignation letter to his or her boss.
In the note, the Reddit user, who goes by the handle Gahdzuks, vents his or her frustration and discontent with the company policies, as well as with the lack of emotion shown during recent events.
The Reddit user repeatedly apologizes throughout the note for a number of unfortunate incidents, all of which are entirely out of his or her control, such as the death of a step-mother, sickness and doctor’s appointments. The note reads:
I am sorry that my step-mother died so suddenly from cancer. I am sorry that I am not a robot and was emotionally affected by her passing and had to miss work.
I am sorry that I got sick and had to miss work so that I didn’t get anyone else sick.
I am sorry I work 47.5 hours per week (without getting paid the overtime that I am legally owed) for the last 7 months, and thus have little choice but to schedule necessary doctor’s appointments during school hours.
Clearly I am a terrible employee, and for that I apologize. I know you hate people telling you how to do your job, but I suggest you start looking for my replacement. Immediately.
The letter is posted with the caption “two weeks notice”, but its bold ending clearly indicates a more immediate departure.
