17-year-old Jackson Racicot of Grande Prairie, Alberta, didn't just want to quit his job at Walmart—he wanted to quit it in style.

Some would say he accomplished his goal.


Walmart shoppers were browsing the store, minding their own business, when Racicot's voice suddenly came over the intercom with a few choice words for his store's management team.

Racicot took a video of the entire incident and posted it to Facebook on December 6.

Watch the video here.

Since then, fans and admirers of the young man's sassy style have driven the video viral!


Racicot opens his announcement with a strong thesis statement:

"Attention all shoppers, associates, and management, I would like to say to all of you today that nobody should work here — ever."


The teen gives a brief account of the management team's offenses, saying, according to INSIDER:

"...he said the store's management lied to employees and insulted them and unfairly cut his pay."

He summed up his entire argument before slamming the intercom back into place.

"F*** management, f*** this job, f*** Walmart."


Speaking to the Edmonton Journal, Racicot said he had already filled out all the exit paperwork to leave his job at Walmart and secured employment elsewhere.

He stated:

"I don't regret what I did. I went into this knowing what will happen."


A representative from Walmart expressed displeasure at Racicot's announcement to the Journal and said the issue would be handled internally.

"We are aware of the video circulating online and are disappointed by this incident. Respect for all individuals including our associates and customers is a core value at Walmart. We are looking into this matter and will address it internally as required."


In the eyes of Twitter, however, Racicot is a hero.




Many claimed Racicot's dramatic exit would never have been necessary if Walmart treated its employees better.


As Jackson finished his announcement, people all around him could be heard cheering.


Although not everyone online felt "hero" was the best description for Racicot.


As a final message to the store's management, after making his announcement, Racicot walked straight out a fire door while the store's customers and employees cheered.

Goodbye, Jackson, you will definitely never be forgotten!

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
