Man resigns from job by giving boss a 'sorry for your loss' card

If you have ever wanted to leave a job but just did not know what to say this may just help you. This man actually went to a store and thoughtfully picked out a condolence card typically meant to help comfort the family of a lost one.

He used this card instead of an email or letter, or even a text to resign from his job by giving it to his boss. The images of this card were shared on Twitter by the author's colleague Hannah and since then have been retweeted nearly 40,000 times and liked by over 210,000 people.


Hannah said on Twitter "one of our team members handed in their notice like this." The front reads "So very sorry for your loss" and on the inside, the man named Sam, wrote, "My last day at work is the 28th July."

Well, at least he gave them a month notice. The text printed on the inside of the card says "Thinking of you at this difficult time." Sam was resigning from his job at a call center in Sheffield, England. Hannah spoke about what happened and she explained that "It was all done in good spirit and not as a petty reaction as some people think." The funniest part is yet to come.


As many people replied, some revealed that they have seen this kind of thing before and in fact, one woman named Zoe shared pictures of how her former colleague Danny resigned, using the exact same card.

Needless to say, this may start a new trend or greeting card companies may even catch on and start a new line of resignation cards.

Is a $1,200 relief check a waste of time?
