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.”
Want to make a grown man cry? Tell him he’s only so-so at his job.
According to a new study, men are more likely than women to cry after a performance review at work. 25% of men say they’ve cried after one, versus 18% of women.
Men are also more likely to storm out of their review and quit. 28% of men have quit after a bad review, versus 11% of women.
The study also found two-thirds of both employees and managers think formal performance reviews are outdated and a waste of time.
And 55% think all performance reviews should be eliminated.
We found some GREAT new advice on how to get in shape quickly. We’re just not sure if you should take it. Ready? Just . . . quit your job.
A new study out of Sydney University in Australia found a good way to get healthy is to stop WORKING.
They found that people who retired got an extra 93 minutes of exercise every week . . . spent 67 fewer minutes every day sitting . . . and slept for 77 more minutes every night.
People were also more likely to quit smoking once they stopped working, and got to spend more time on their hobbies and other stuff they actually like.
The researchers say that when you stop working it, quote, “creates a great window of opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes. It’s a chance to get rid of bad routines and engineer new, healthier behaviors.”
Of course, none of this really works unless you’ve got enough money to avoid stressing out about not having a job. So, you know . . . hopefully you kept listening until I said THAT, and didn’t quit your job 45 seconds ago.
You’re not human unless you’ve fantasized about quitting your job in a BLAZE OF GLORY. But of course, when it comes time to ACTUALLY quit, you wuss out and do it respectfully. Time to live vicariously through the people who DIDN’T.
A new survey asked more than 600 human resources managers to name the CRAZIEST ways they ever saw someone quit a job. Here are the top seven . . .
1. A guy threw a brick through the window with “I quit” written on it.
2. A guy threw a cup of coffee in the air and walked out.
3. A woman said she was going out to buy new boots and never came back.
4. A woman baked a cake with her resignation letter written on top.
5. A guy had a marching band come in and accompany him while he announced he was leaving.
6. One woman created a music video to explain she was leaving.
7. An employee had his parents call in to say their son was quitting.
Let’s say you won the lottery tonight. Would you go into work on Monday?
Your first answer is probably, “Ha! No.” Your second answer is probably, “Let me repeat: HELL NO.” But once you think about it . . . what WOULD you do without some kind of work?
A new survey found less than a quarter of people would fully retire if they got rich.
Only 23% of people say they’d definitely quit.
36% would stay at their current job . . . and
41% would want to keep working, but at a different job.
What about you?
