We’ve all seen a funny “I quit” meme or two floating around on the web, and these viral kiss-offs are proof that some people really do choose to go out in a blaze of glory when they’re ready to quit their jobs. Whether it’s telling off your awful manager and marching out with no warning, or passing in your two weeks’ notice written on a roll of toilet paper, these heroes are truly quitting their jobs in a spectacular manner!
Here’s a Dinosaur
“Also, I quit.”
Her Future Depended on Quitting
“I worked at a small Save-a-Lot in high school. I needed to take the SAT across state at 8 a.m. and, as you know, it’s a long test. In advance I requested it off. The day the schedule was released I was scheduled.
“I brought it up to my boss and he said, ‘Why do you need the day off?’ I told him and he said, ‘Why should I let you have time off for that?’
“I was also denied a nickel raise (big deal) when I worked every weekend and everyone’s shift…. but someone’s nephew got a quarter raise and literally only worked 3 months out of the year.
“I threw my till at him and said, ‘I quit!’ He asked me, ‘When?’ I said, ‘Now.’
He was enormously flabbergasted and I stormed out. Best feeling ever.” — LeslieKnopeNo2
Make It a Hallmark Moment
Something about a nice card really lessens the blow.
Say It With Cake
“So, my brother-in-law has resigned from his 9-to-5 job in spectacular fashion. Jerry Maguire meets Masterchef,” wrote Twitter user Stu Jackson.
Double the Deliciousness
What’s better than one resignation cake? Two!
It’s a Sign
“Exit 329 closed. Sucks to be you but I got fired today so don’t expect any help.”
“Worked at a GNC store for a month ten years ago. The lady who owned/ran the franchise was a mega b*tch and would always find ways to casually insult her employees.
“Anyway, one day I was opening the store with her, when she turned to me and asked ‘Did you eat breakfast today?’
“‘Uh… yes, I did,’ ‘Oh. Well then do you have a mental disability of some sort…? You don’t seem to understand what I tell you, dear.’ But she said it in a sweet, fake way, as though she was legitimately concerned that I was possibly mentally handicapped (I’m not). This was one of many, many fun insults, and I was done.
I said ‘Excuse me,’ walked to the back room, grabbed my stuff, and started walking out. She asked where I was going, and I just said, ‘See ya, b*tch.’ She yelled after me but I don’t recall what she said. All in all, pretty satisfying.” — Sharkattackr
I’m outta here, best wishes.
Worse Than No Raise
“When my raise was $75. Not $75 more per check, $75 more per year.
“You know how it’s more insulting to leave a sh*itty tip than to leave no tip at all? That’s how getting a raise of about .2% felt, especially since I’d just put in 3 straight months of ~60 hour weeks. The boss is lucky I didn’t burn the place to the ground.” —SevenSixOne
Perfectly Passive Aggressive
If you’re starting your letter with, “I’m sorry that my stepmother died so suddenly from cancer,” there’s really no place to go but down.
“A Co-Worker Posted Pictures of Himself in Random Places When He Quit…
“This is the back of a clock, and he quit 2 years ago.”
We love it when pranksters pull a long con.
My Ex-Manager Wouldn’t Give Me My Last Paycheck Without a Resignation Letter
Short, sweet, and to the point.
Creative and Effective
Pro tip: never tick off your I.T. guy. Ever.

This is so cute, we bet his boss wasn’t even mad.
Drop the Mic
“I was managing a cafe for nearly 4 years single handedly. Massive one too. We had won awards like you wouldn’t believe, I had managed to push revenue up a little over 300% during my time there. I bled for that place. Never took breaks or holidays, always went above and beyond, poured my heart and soul into it. The owners were very hands off. Went on overseas holidays 4 or 5 times a year. Would actively be in the business about 8 hours a week between them.
“Last year in June I gave them the heads up that I was going to take a week off over Christmas. It was the first holiday I had booked, I was traveling to see my dad who was extremely ill. Like, not sure if he’d make it sick. That’s fine, they understood, I had an excellent team in place who would survive without me.
“2 weeks before my scheduled holiday I get a text from the owner. ‘So we have decided to go to Australia for Christmas! We just booked the flights. Obviously as manager we expect you to be in the cafe while we are gone so we will have to cancel your time off.’
“No apologies, nothing. So I quit.
1 year later I heard through the grapevine they’ve had to file for bankruptcy.” —BreeCC
So satisfying, isn’t it!?
