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.

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.

But the original poster cleared that all up.

People were loving the whole idea.




And apparently the entire office appreciated it as well.

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.

Even with the same exact card.

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.

It truly is a sign of the times.

Although you can get assorted sympathy cards, in case you need to quit several jobs.

Over-sharing is a thing. Sometimes, people really just cross the line in the information they've decided to volunteer to us.

It's hard to control who does this to us since it tends to take us by surprise, but hearing some of the things that people have suffered having to hear can easily act as cautionary tales to us.

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
