This Bloke quit his job with a brilliant ‘sorry for your loss’ card
A wise man once said that if you can make your passion your career, you’ll never feel like you’re at work. Unfortunately, not everyone has that choice. There are always times when work feels like work. That’s why it’s bloody imperative to get on with your workmates and always do your best to see the funny side of things. 22-year-old Sam Baines is a young bloke who did see the funny side of things and his resignation letter proves it. Check it out below…
By now, we’ve all kind of become accustomed to the idea that quitting your job doesn’t have to be an intense, conflict-oriented experience. That’s probably because tonnes of people actually work with people they reckon are an okay group of blokes and sheilas.
And that’s exactly the case at Sam’s work. That’s why, instead of a boring old email, he put his resignation on a condolences card. As you can see from the pictures, the outside of the card reads: ‘So very sorry for your loss.’ Inside, the smartarse signed off with, ‘My last day of work is the 29th July. Thinking of you at this difficult time.’
After his cheeky resignation notice went viral, he spoke out to say that there was absolutely no animosity in his leaving. He was just going back to uni and had served his time.
“I’ve been working here for almost a year now and had to hand my notice in as I’m going back to university this September.
We are a really close team and have a fantastic manager so we’re always joking around and having fun. I knew I had to do something a little more creative when giving my notice to try and get one more joke in before I left!”
Clearly, everyone at work thought the whole thing was bonza. Hanna thought it was so bloody good, she posted it online.
Sam reckons the boss appreciated it too.
“I knew my boss would find it funny so I wasn’t worried about how they’d take it. I came up with the idea because I was always joking about how much they’d miss me when I was gone, then thought a condolences card would be the perfect way to finish it off.
It went down great and helped make a positive from an otherwise sad situation.”
Final thought: You’ve gotta love a feel-good story like this. Of course, it gets us wondering about you blokes and blokettes. How’ve you quit your job, and what’s the best quit you’ve seen from a fellow staff member?
