Genius! I’ve felt like getting up, leaving and never returning to work so many times. Maybe mooning the senior management first…
i love it! thank you sooooooooooooo much doug. 🙂 i’m currently packing my things and leaving files as organized as possible with good luck wishes to the person taking my place. it’s a bittersweet occasion. glad to have an sc cartoon to mark it with.
This is exactly how I quit a job about a year ago. It worked!
Ahhh…if only it was so easy…
How to end up living in a cardboard box in some alley.
1) Quit your job.
2)Buy a cardboard box
3)Sell your stuff and keep the money in your pockets
4)Congrats! Find an empty ally and your all set!
hey! i used to work with that guy
Another great cartoon! Wish one of my coworkers would follow through on that advice.
He just stands up, yells that he’s quitting and stomps out the door. This happens about once every 6 weeks. Usually he calls someone in the office two minutes later because he’s left his keys and phone behind on the desk.
Then he’s back at work the next day as if nothing happened. I’m just waiting for it to happen and to stick.
So this means that the chicken will be relying on his fallback position of…?
(Astrophysicist? Circus clown?)
Good one. I once was too chicken to quit my job. I let someone else call and tell that I quit. When the person phoned, I did stand beside of them. Now, this is how a true chicken would quit!
does that work for school too?
This is great Doug! I emailed it to my friend Amy. She quit her job yesterday. She actually said, “Eff you! I quit!” to her boss and walked out. But then today she went to work. So I think you need to add another step. Something like “3. Don’t go back”
again, doug, you read my mind. how do you do that? is there a mad scientist chicken with a metal colinder one his head somewhere in my office.
i’ve tried number 2. but they didn’t seem to noticed…
I did that a few years ago, but with a slightly different step 1.
I said ‘fcuk you, idiot’ and then walked out. The ‘You are fired’ letter arrived at my home sooner then i did. (i went to the movies to enjoy my freedom).
Got me a nice 6 months severance pay too.
i did it
its very simple
but then again
im only 15 years old
me quiting mie job
doesnt mean no home for me
Step one is for pansies! I wasn’t going to get the time off I needed to pick my girlfriend up from the airport (I had cleared it with them more than two months prior), so I played along with them. They needed me to shift my schedule to be the morning cashier all week (go in at 8am compared to my usual 1pm), and I just blew them off. I still need to go back in some time and see if they have any checks for me.
It was only Staples, anyways. What a hell hole.
It works! I have implemented this great tactic and I am a sworn success story. I even sent them a “resignation” after about a week of not showing up–they accepted!
lol, this would be great on a shirt *hint hint*
