Whether you love or hate your job, tendering your resignation can be tricky.
Most of the time you probably want to do it as efficiently and professionally as possible.
Other times you may want to go out in a blaze of glory, with copious middle fingers for everyone. That may be ill-advised, however.
But one person found a very clever (and hilarious) way of letting their employer know that they'd soon be down a team member—with a condolence card.
one of our team members handed in their notice like this 😂😂😂 https://t.co/tqc9Hn6ODE— h. (@h.)1561646524.0
It's pretty great.
If you are known at work for being the office clown , then this approach seems like the perfect fit. It gets the point across without any of that awkwardness.
Read the room, of course, but any boss who wouldn't get at least a chuckle out of this needs their sense of humor checked pronto.
Once people took some time to actually examine the card, they noticed something peculiar: the worker had given way more than the standard 2 weeks notice.
@bitchitshan A month's notice? fast track them to sainthood— ❤️ Jayvie ❤️ (@❤️ Jayvie ❤️)1561663926.0
But the original poster cleared that all up.
okay lmao just to clarify one month is normal notice here— h. (@h.)1561671318.0
People were loving the whole idea.

@bitchitshan I love their work, I honestly have no choice but to stan 😂😂😂— Double wahala, wahala 1&2 (@Double wahala, wahala 1&2)1561660470.0
And apparently the entire office appreciated it as well.
@okuhlekodwaije no really we all just stood and laughed when it was presented to our manager 😂😂😂— h. (@h.)1561664045.0
And while this particular incident went viral, leave it to the internet to let us all know that people have, in fact, been doing it for years.
@bitchitshan I took it just a bit further. https://t.co/jW74isf4Hj— James R. (@James R.)1561674010.0
Even with the same exact card.
@bitchitshan I know someone who did exact same thing , exact same card 😂 https://t.co/2W8xyFiXC4— Evenstar 🌟 (@Evenstar 🌟)1561671082.0
Apparently there are only a handful of usable condolence cards out there or something.

And, if a card isn't your style but you love surprises, you could do what this icon did.
@bitchitshan My mom retired similarly. No one but HR knew she was going to retire that year, then she emailed "Cake… https://t.co/hVtoMUM757— Boogie Babies Are Still In Cages (@Boogie Babies Are Still In Cages)1561678147.0
It truly is a sign of the times.
@bitchitshan How we are dealing with toxic work environments in 2019 👏👏👏👏👏👏— January (@January)1561665620.0
Although you can get assorted sympathy cards, in case you need to quit several jobs.
