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.”
If you’re wondering how to start a conversation with a match on Tinder, here’s the trendiest pickup line right now. Ready? Say, “I wish they’d teach us more about Vikings.”
If you’re confused, you should be, because it’s super confusing. Here’s how it started.
A 21-year-old in Michigan named Caitlin Whitlock was going through old stuff at her parents’ house in March, and found a book by the American Girl company called “A Smart Girl’s Guide to Boys”.
One of the pages listed ways to start a conversation. And randomly, one of the things they suggested was “I wish they’d teach us more about Vikings.”
She thought it was funny, so she texted it to a friend. Not surprisingly, he wrote back, quote, “What the [eff].” So she tweeted a screenshot of their exchange, and a picture of the book, and it slowly went viral.
It started blowing up recently, and now people are supposedly using it as a pickup line. And some even say it’s working.
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.”
A woman in Ireland named Denise O’Reilly grabbed some money from her purse last month, and one of the bills had a message on it that said, “Christy, it’s always been you. Come and find me.” And it was signed by someone named Megan.
So Denise posted a picture of it online, and asked people to share it, so whoever ‘Christy’ was might see it. And it actually WORKED. Thousands of people shared it on Facebook, and a guy named Christy Leech came forward the next day.
It turns out he’s a musician, and his ex-girlfriend wrote the note. He says they broke up a while back, then she came to one of his shows about six months ago, and wrote the note before she used the bill to pay the cover.
Apparently she thought the money would go straight to the band, but Christy didn’t see it, and never knew she was there. He also says her name isn’t actually Megan. It’s an inside joke, because he THOUGHT her name was Megan the first time they met.
It’s not clear if they’re dating again, and we still don’t know her real name. But he confirmed that they ARE back in touch now.
By the way, he also said the line “It’s always been you” that she wrote on the money is the name of a SONG he wrote about her while they were still together.

Note on a Dollar
Back in the days of America Online chat rooms, when you wanted to acknowledge that something was funny, you’d write “LOL.” If you’re under 25, that sentence sounds like complete jibberish.

- 15% of people “laughed” in at least one post.
- 51.4% used at least one “ha.” So “ha,” “haha,” and so on.
- 33.7% used a laughing emoji.
- 13.1% wrote “hehe.”
- And only 1.9% used “LOL.”
Young people were most likely to use emojis . . . older people were most likely to use LOL.
