Take this job and shove it
Whether you are working now or not, at some point in time most of us have dreamt about quitting our jobs or even fantasized how exactly we would go about telling our boss to shove it.
When Steven Slater the flight attendant from JetBlue recently quit his job by allegedly making an announcement on the airplane intercom system, grabbing a beer and exiting the plane via the emergency slide, people across the world cheered and called him a hero.
And why the hell not? He did what most fed-up, unappreciated and overworked employees wish they actually had the balls to do. Not only did he quit but he quit in the grandest of fashion! For this I give Steven some major props.
Like many people I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall of that airplane, but at this point no one has been able to produce a video of Steven and his famous exit from JetBlue. No doubt there will probably be a future movie or reality show depicting the whole crazy ordeal. Until then, check out this amusing and slightly naughty video of a guy who thinks he has won the lottery and therefore takes great pleasure in quitting his job:
Now if you haven’t thought of doing at least of couple of those things then you should probably get a bit more creative with your exit strategy!
…I’m just saying…
