Getting tired of cleaning up after others? Maybe that pencil pushing job just isn't doing it for you anymore, well here's a list of the do's and don'ts on how to bow out gracefully on your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad job.

Do – Make sure to really think it through when leaving this job. Consider the factors of how flexible the job is as compared to others and if you really don't find yourself happy there.

Don't – Shooting sprees are never an effective way of saying you don't like your job. Well…maybe it's effective, but it's not really that good.

Do – Try to ween your way out of the job if possible. If you know your resignation is coming in close then don't tie yourself down to the job the last few days of working there.

Don't – In an attempt to leave the job, don't try to piss everyone off by remarking to them all as "f**king robots", "cock wranglers", or "Satan's little fry cooks". Chances are, one of them will see you again, and that one may be the person who carries a knife on them.

Do – Find an alternative to the time spent while working. Maybe go for a job. Have that big project you've been meaning to work on? Well, here's your chance to get to it!

Don't – Burn down the building. That's called arson and it's a felony apparently.

Do – Send a nice letter or card to the people who helped get you the job to show your appreciation for the opportunity. They put their trust in you and maybe the relationship won't go too sour.

Don't – Sending anthrax to the people who helped you get the job is a bad idea. Or a severed body part.

Do – Learn from your experience and realize that the job just wasn't right for you.

Don't – Do not go back to the same damn type of job you just quit.


Well, that's it for now folks. As always, until next time…
