Resignation By Cake

Man resigns from job by handing in notice on cake
A man told his boss he was leaving his job by writing a resignation letter on a cake.
Today I gave a two week's notice of my intent to resign. The letter was written in frosting on a full sheet size cake. The cake was delicious and it was well received.
.
Dear Mr. Bowers,
During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim. However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.
Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27.
Sincerely,
W. Neil Berrett

One time I'd written my resignation letter on my ass... It wasn't nearly as well received.

Anon how in the hell did you write a letter of resignation on your ass?
Tattoo Jim just say "fuck it, I quit"??? is today’s version of the 1981 song

Take This Job And Shove It (Lyrics)

Chorus: TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT/ I AIN’T WORKING HERE NO MORE
MY WOMAN DONE LEFT AND TOOK ALL OF THE REASONS I WAS WORKING FOR
YOU BETTER NOT TRY TO STAND IN MY WAY/ WHEN I WALK OUT THE DOOR
TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT/ I AIN’T WORKING HERE NO MORE

I BEEN WORKING IN THIS FACTORY/ PRETTY CLOSE TO 15 YEARS
I’VE SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS WOMEN/ STANDING IN A POOL OF TEARS
I’VE SEEN A LOT OF KINFOLKS DYING/ I HAD A LOT OF BILLS TO PAY
LORD, ID GIVE THE SHIRT RIGHT OFFIN MY BACK/ IF I HAD THE NERVE TO SAY:

Repeat Chorus

THE FOREMAN IS A REGULAR S.O.B. AND THE NIGHT BOSS, HES A FOOL
HE GOT HIMSELF A BRAND NEW FLATTOP HAIRCUT
LORD, HE REALLY THINKS THAT’S COOL
ONE OF THESE DAYS IM GONNA BLOW MY TOP
AND THERE’S GONNA BE HELL TO PAY
I CANT WAIT TO SEE THEIR FACES WHEN I GET THE NERVE TO SAY

Repeat Chorus

TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT . . .
