20 Disgruntled Employees That Left Their Jobs With A Bang
When the time comes to quit a job, you normally pack up your belongings, give a few farewells, and leave through the front doors without a ton of fanfare. Rarely do people act on elaborate fantasies to yell at their bosses or punt the water cooler — but some folks do.
See, leaving a job is also the ultimate time to make a grand gesture and never look back — the opportunity to act without consequences, after all, is a rare treat. That's why these 20 former employees (emphasis on former) seized their chances to make their final work days unforgettable...
1. Gwen gave up a job of 18 years at a refrigerator company to dive into puppeteer work, and she made the announcement through a 2014 Super Bowl ad. On the list of creative ways to avoid a face to face with the boss, a Superbowl commercial might win.
2. Stocking shelves at a grocery store is solitary work. So before taking his final bow, one worker spent his shift carefully turning all the cereal boxes upside down. The manager might not have noticed, but several innocent shoppers probably did.
3. A big spectacle quit is all well and good, but planting your face around your old job is a more satisfying slow burn. This diabolical employee hid pictures of himself like Easter Eggs throughout the place for coworkers to find. Two years later, the clock died — but he lived on.
4. We've got a quitter on aisle four! One Walmart employee put her intercom privileges to good use. After identifying herself as "Alexis from electronics," she ranted about the frustrations of her job and quit for all the store to hear.
