Taiwanese Animation Company Responds

Believe me, I want to believe as much as the next cubicle monkey that this woman who quit her job via a video of her doing an interpretive dance to Kanye West’s song “Gone” is real. I have wanted to go out in a blaze of glory at so, so many jobs. But now that the very same Taiwanese animation company which supposedly employed Marina Shifrin — who, by the way, is a comedian — have responded with their own video, I find it increasingly less likely this whole thing is real. Isn’t this just a massive PR stunt? These people make viral videos for a living. Watch Next Media Animation’s “response” video and tell me you don’t agree with me. [YouTube]

I QUIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!

Who hasn’t at one point — or many — dreamed of quitting their job in some sort of dramatic, clever fashion? Marina V. Shifrin, a video producer, was sick of insanely late nights spent creating videos that were only valued by her boss based on the views they received rather than the content therein. So, one night at 4:30 am, while stuck in the office, she decided to make one video on her own terms: an interpretive “I quit!” dance to Kanye West’s “Gone.” How much you wanna bet this video gets more views than the others she did for work? I’m happy to help with that by posting it. You go, girl. [via Thought Catalog]

We’ve been abuzz this week with news of flight attendant Steve Slater’s dramatic exit from a Jet Blue plane and (presumably) his job. Then we heard about the (confirmed as totally fake) woman who quit her job via a carefully worded series of dry erase board messages. It reminded us of one of our all-time favorite quitters — W. Neil Berrett — who quit via a GIANT SHEET CAKE (tasty and to-the-point!).

While we’ve certainly fantasized about leaving past jobs in a cloud of smoke, booze and tears, we’ve never actually done anything like the folks above. But we’re betting that some of you have a similar flair for the dramatic. So what’s the best or worst way you’ve ever quit a job? Keep reading »

These People Know How to Quit A Job With Flair

In today’s economy, you hear more about people looking for jobs than leaving them. But that doesn’t mean the world still isn’t full of disgruntled workers who decide it’s better to drop their job then deal with the daily torment. While most people’s resignations involve a two weeks notice and a quiet exit, there are a few who decide to turn their leaving into a memorable event. We are talking Jerry Maguire — walking out with a fish and Renee Zellweger — kind of productions here. Two happened just this week. Keep reading »
