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!

Why do all of our best ideas happen when under the influence? Or is that a thought we just believe to be true?

I will say some of my best ideas spring forth with a nip of Grey Goose, but all the ideas at the bottom of the bottle never seem to pan out.

I can't be alone here.

I know that there has to be people who acted upon ideas born when smoking the Mary J. (do the kids say that anymore?) that when put into action thought... "Well that was a mistake."

Or are we tapping into the brilliant and it just needs a little nurturing? So many thoughts. Let's discuss... sober.

You can deduce plenty about people just from the things they have in their home.

Not that I rummage through people's homes... much. But there are certain items that are present or missing that let you know there may be trouble in some areas of a person's life.

Many people complain about adulting because they weren't properly taught how to be responsible.

You, know, like paying the bills, filing for taxes, or just getting by on a day-to-day basis without relying on parents.

But people not knowing some very basic skills in life like, say, using a vacuum cleaner or operating a washing machine is on a whole other level.

A first date can be very exciting, but there's a lot riding on the initial romantic encounter.

Unlike in previous generations, many people meet their potential suitors through various online apps, where users have control over their perception.

Once a rapport is established, it's on to meet up in person. Once the profile pic matches expectations, most previous concerns go by the wayside and the evening can be smooth sailing.

Until it isn't.
