11 people who definitely won't be getting a good reference from their former bosses

Someone’s got a bad case of the Mondays.

HAVE A BAD case of the Mondays? Feel like just packing it all in and running away?

Maybe think about it a bit more before you make any radical decisions. Distract yourself with these creative ways to quit.

1. Interpretive dance

Marina Smith’s dance around her former office to Kanye West’s Gone quickly went viral. Ironically, she quit over having to get hits for the company’s news videos. The company hit back with a seriously awkward dance, but deep down, she’s done them proud.

2. A questionable cake

For those of you who’d like to take a less-than-classy route, all the while leaving a sweet taste in your former boss’ mouth.


3. A GREAT cake

Leaving for pastures a new? Everything is a marketing opportunity.

4. Via video game

A computer programmer made a short Mario video game he then sent around his office. The prize at the end of each level? I QUIT.

Resigning AND ruining office productivity? Bonus points.


5. Enlist a marching band to help you

Joey DeFrancesco was tired of being treated poorly while working in hotel room service. His resignation was anything but poor, as he proudly marched out with a whole marching band behind him.
