Here are a bunch of AWESOME ways to quit your job…
… If you’ve got another one lined up
… Or a side hustle that’s kicking ass
… And by “kicking ass” I mean “making enough money to replace your day job so you don’t end up in a van down by the river“
… If you’ve got the balls the size of Texas
… And if you don’t care about making a spectacle of yourself ;)
Quit #1: Do it in front of 100 million people on Super Bowl Sunday
I saw this one over at a new blog I’ve been reading, Debt Discipline, and I can’t believe I missed it during the Super Bowl!! A DAMN good way to say “I quit.” Plus, how can you go wrong with puppets?
Quit #2: Make a (playable) video game out of it
OMG this is one is good… Click to play it and see what happens ;) It’ll take you like 3 seconds.
Quit #3: Make a Dance Video. At Work.
Here’s a note from the quitter before you watch :)
“I work for an awesome company that makes news videos. I have put my life into this job, but my boss says quantity, speed and views are what is most important. I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings.”
And then she signs off with a link to her website like a boss (Marinavshifrin.com). Love it.
And here’s how her boss took it ;)
Quit #4: Do it on your own radio show
This one comes from radio host, Inetta “the Moodsetta”, who apparently had enough ;) The last line is classic: “So if you’re confused about what I’m saying, listen carefully… I quit this b*tch” *Cuts to station ID clip* Haha…
Quit #5: Sing your way to the end
This one comes from my boy, Romeo Jeremiah, who shares a handful of hilarious videos like these to help motivate to quit ;) He’s also got a new book out called “The Wealth Number” ($9.99 @ Amazon) which helps people to get their finances in order before making the big leap.
Here’s the vid… I love that it was on the Steve Harvey show? Haha…
Quit #6: Make a spectacle out of it
This one’s a classic by Doug, aka “That Guy With The Glasses.” Equipped with a boombox, a wardrobe change, and some paint:
I think that gives you enough motivation :) Though don’t confuse “awesome” with “smart” here – I’m sure there are 1,001 more backfires with these that were quietly swiped under the rug. Along with the quitter’s dignity, haha…
But hey – you only
work live once, right?
The “F MY JOB” T-Shirt Giveaway:
So after writing up this post and setting it to go out this morning, a good friend of mine (Vu) who created FMyJob.com randomly asked if I’d like to give away a handful of shirts to my blog readers.
At first I was like “Shirts?? WhoWantsShirts.com?” Haha… But then I thought, “They are kinda cool actually. And they’re Free. Maybe my readers would like them?” And since they fit perfectly with today’s topic, I figured it was a sign :)
So, up for grabs today are three “F My Job” t-shirts. But first, a little about FMyJob.com: It’s the “quickest and most efficient way of searching for jobs on the internet,” and if you try it out you’ll see what I mean. It has tons of job listings and way less ads than other sites, and it’s also great for searching foreign jobs out there too. My boy built it himself – it’s pretty cool.
Want one? Answer this question below in the comments and you’ll be entered to win. Just don’t forget and wear it at work unless you’re trying to make a statement like the people above :)
“On a scale from 1-10, how bad do you want to leave your job? 1 is none at all – you love it there! – and 10 is, well, saying you want to F’ing leave.”
Drop your answer below (feel free to comment anonymously), and we’ll random.org the 3 winners on Sunday and ship ’em off to you. They’re all gray and size Large, and something tells me my friend just wants to offload them out of his basement ;) But hey – his loss your gain!
Now click away from this post before your boss finds out what you’re up to!
PS: Giveaway open to only U.S. and Canadian residents, sowee!
PPS: Big congrats to Vu for saying F You to his own job last year. He walks the walk…
PPPS: If you’re a lucky winner of one of these shirts and want to be famous, Vu said he’ll add up a picture of you wearing it on his site if you email one over ;) Though, again, unless you’re trying to get fired, be careful of who sees it!
***GIVEAWAY OVER*** Here are the 3 lucky winners: 1) Will S., 2) John @ Frugal Rules, 3) Betsy. Thanks for participating everyone – hope you enjoyed the article! :)
