I-QuitToday the news was full of a story about an Alaska TV reporter who quit her job on air by saying fuck it I quit. Now the other stations all responded by saying that was immature and unprofessional is that how you feel? I’ll go along with the immature and maybe unprofessional but it if you’re having problems at work and you’re going to get fired anyhow, it doesn’t really matter how you say it. Jeff has come close by saying screw this take the job and shove it. At times this was not the best decision he ever made but in the long run things worked out better for him. He’s also been fired twice and both times he has later thanked his ex employers for doing him a favor. When you leave a job and it’s not because you have a better offer it’s not going to be pleasant. You may not get bad recommendations your past employer will probably only admit to the fact that you worked there. I have absolutely no problem with this reporter telling her employer off on the air as you’ve probably noticed when other news people leave it’s usually not a hug and kisses, good luck and goodbye sort of thing. She was going to get fired anyway because of conflict of interest. This way she gets a lot of social media publicity and is better known and it was all free. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t think everybody that wants to quit should run in tomorrow and say fuck it I quit. But I don’t think long notices are a good idea either I believe if you have a better job lined up no notice is good enough. In the restaurant business when you give notice you’re usually fired right away and other businesses are similar in their approach to employees leaving. Jeff once hated a job so much he left a note in the cash register saying he quit. What do you guys think I know some of you must have thought about saying fuck it I quit at some time in your career you just never voiced it. This is Flounder, and I ain’t quitting, saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

    I liked it – I have done it just that way as I am sure Jeff has too
