A Funny Resignation Letter

Why quit quietly when you can quit hilariously?

Here is a hilarious resignation letter that was written by a friend of mine. The letter stirred such a ruckus that HR circulated it amongst their team, like one of those funny emails you forward to friends. Here is that letter:

Dear Company Name,

After four wonderful years, I regret to inform you that it is time for me to move on. I can imagine what you must be feeling now: betrayal, anguish, frustration, sorrow. This is normal and the pain will fade with time.

It’s not you, it’s me. Please know that, in my heart, I will always love you. I do honestly believe this is for the best, and I know you’ll find someone new that is an even better fit for you than I was.

It’s been a really great run and I appreciate all the good (and bad) times we’ve had together. I hope we can still be friends.


I don’t know about you, but milk shout out of my nose as I laughed out loud over this letter. And I wasn’t even drinking milk.

Okay, so this is no dramatic “exit out the inflatable evacuation slide” departure, nor a creative “quit using a series of dry erase photos” resignation. Cheers to both of them for milk sputtering exits of their own. But I thought this letter was pretty hilarious too.

Known of any other funny resignation letters?

UPDATE 8/11/2010: The “quit using a series of dry erase photos” is a hoax!
