Best Resignation Letter Yet
I am often asked for advice on the best way to resign or I am asked to review a draft of a resignation letter. This one is by far the best and clearly wins the award this year for most innovative (maybe just entertaining) resignation letter. I don't necessarily recommend using it, but I am guessing it was pretty therapeutic to just pen this thing. The names and dates have been omitted to protect the innocent. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.
Dear (Employer): I recently found myself in a difficult place. After nearly three years of standing on a bridge, with a match in one hand and a bottle of gasoline in the other, I realized it is time to put the bottle down, discard the match, and simply walk off the bridge. Sometimes things just don’t work out and it’s time to hit the road. In doing so, I want to quote the legendary George Strait, "Goodbye, farewell, so long, Vaya con Dios, good luck, wish you well, take it slow, easy come, easy go." At this point I have decided to pursue my dreams of being a rodeo clown. I plan to ride off into the sunset.
