Now THIS is how you burn a bridge on the way out of a job.
A woman just posted a picture on Reddit of her husband’s resignation letter from his job. And it’s a unique one . . . because he wrote it on toilet paper.
And just to make sure his company understood that symbolism, he wrote, quote, “I have chosen this type of paper . . . as a symbol of how I feel this company has treated me and . . . where I feel this company is going.”
Man, I wish someone would touch ME as much as they touch their phone. Then maybe my dad would respect me.
A new study found we touch our phones an average of 2,617 times a day. That includes every single touch, tap, and swipe . . . so if you’re texting, every letter you press counts as a touch.
And the 10% of us who use our phones the most touch them 5,427 times a day.
The study also found we use our phones 76 times a day, which is about five times an hour. And we’re using them for a total of two hours and 25 minutes.
And finally, 87% of us sometimes check our phones in the middle of the night.

Actual Letter from mom
A woman named Estella Havisham recently wrote a letter to her 13-year-old son, after he told her to stop telling him what to do. Apparently he hadn’t done his homework, but didn’t want to be treated like a kid.
And since he makes a few bucks off some YouTube channel of his, he made a comment about how “at least ONE of us is making money.” Estella is in between jobs because of health issues. So she wrote him a letter, and said she AGREED.
But it’s all over Facebook, because she said that if he wanted to be treated like an adult, she’d actually start charging him ROOM and BOARD. Which every parent has WANTED to do, but you’ve probably never tried it. Here’s the letter:
“Dear Aaron, Since you seem to have forgotten that you are only 13, and I’M the parent . . . I guess you will need to learn a lesson in independence.
“Also, as you threw in my face that you are making money now, it will be easier to buy back all the items I bought for you in the past.
“If you would like your lamp / light bulbs, or access to the internet, you will need to pay your share of costs: Rent, $430. Electricity, $116. Internet, $21. Food, $150.
“Also, you will need to empty the trash Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, as well as sweep and vacuum those days. You will need to keep your bathroom clean weekly, prepare your own meals, and clean up after yourself.
“If you fail to do so, I will charge you a $30 maid fee for every day I have to do it. If you decide you would rather be MY CHILD again, instead of roommate, we can negotiate terms. Love, Mom.”
Taylor Swift Scolded Apple Music for Not Paying Artists, and Apple Caved
Earlier this month, Apple announced Apple Music, a streaming service that would cost $9.99 a month after a three-month free trial. But during that introductory period, artists, writers, and producers would NOT be paid.
TAYLOR SWIFT didn’t like that. She announced that her new album “1989” wouldn’t be on the service, and scolded Apple in an “open letter” on her website.
She said, quote, “I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company . . . three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing.
“We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.” She said she isn’t speaking up as a, quote, “spoiled, petulant child,” but for the smaller artists who are struggling to make ends meet.
And last night, someone from Apple said they’d changed their minds . . . Tweeting, quote, “Apple Music WILL pay artists for streaming, even during customers’ free trial period. We hear you Taylor and indie artists. Love, Apple.”
(Taylor’s whole letter is on her Tumblr page, here. It’s pretty well-written, although she seems careful not to attack Apple TOO viciously, since she apparently likes that their goal is for paid streaming.)
