Man Turns in Notice to Job by Using Condolence Card
Just about every one of us has quit a job for one reason or the other. There's been one job that I've flat out walked out on. All the others, I was able to give notice. For the most part, my letters of notice have been very professional, even if a couple of them I really wanted to get petty.
In the case of Sam Baines, the way he gave his notice that he was leaving his job seems petty, but his job actually has a sense of humor. Everyone, including his boss, got the joke according to insider.com.
Baines told insider.com:
I've been working here for almost a year now and had to hand my notice in as I'm going back to university this September. We are a really close team and have a fantastic manager, so we're always joking around and having fun. I knew I had to do something a little more creative when giving my notice to try and get one more joke in before I left! I knew my boss would find it funny, so I wasn't worried about how they'd take it. I came up with the idea because I was always joking about how much they'd miss me when I was gone, then thought a condolences card would be the perfect way to finish it off. It went down great and helped make a positive from an otherwise sad situation.
One of his co-workers shared the condolence card on Twitter:
Dude, that's funny. It's great, too, that his workplace has that kind of atmosphere. If only all jobs could be like that.
Good luck to Sam in his future endeavors and here's to hoping his next job will be as fun as this one.
