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!

Life can change in an instant.

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.

"People who witness a person's life crumble in a single day, what happened?"
