I'm heading for resignation
Are you longing to write a resignation letter to your boss like someone else I know? Do you hate your job and spend your day imagining what you would like to do to your boss or the manager?So you just can't take it anymore -
Rules keep changing on you faster than you change your underpants
The boss is rude and obnoxious
They don't appreciate you & your skills / your sense of humour
You are over worked & underpaid
It's a bitchy female manager you do not get on with
The product is not as good as you thought
or maybe you have found a better job elsewhere!
and so on.
STOP Think before you write that letter of resignation ok!
Remember in most cases you have to give 2 weeks notice.
Keep in mind some companies like the one I was working for let you go the minute you hand in your resignation.
They should pay you the two weeks in full so make sure, if this happens you receive your money.
Reasons you can use in a resignation letter would be ....
... Due to personal reasons
Because of family health issues
Would like to expand my experience
Moving out of the area and so on.
Are you looking for humorous resignation letters or a more serious resignation letter?

The wrong way to write a resignation letter
I am very excited to be able to tell you to stick the job as I am leaving. I am sick of you being rude to me when I am late especially when it is only by a minute.
We don't get paid enough for all the work we do so on my last day off sick I found a better
job which pays more
I hope you find another sucker to take my place ok.
Funny resignation letter !!
Funny Resignation Letter
Dear Mr. Boss:
I'm thrilled to inform you that I'm resigning.
I have been waiting for what seems like forever to inform you that I’m resigning. I’ve hated worked for the company since the day I was hired. I don’t like the work, I don’t like my fellow employees, and I don’t like you.
I am tendering my resignation effective immediately and I’m heading for the open road. I bought a Harley and a leather jacket and my girlfriend, Denise, is coming along. It was a little tough to find a jacket to fit her, but we managed.
I know you would like me to help you with a transition, but I won’t. Have fun figuring out the files on my computer. I can’t even figure them out most of the time.
Oh, speaking of computers, you’ll need to figure out the passwords to all our online resources. I forgot to keep a list of them, so have fun with that.
I’m sure you’d like to have a going away party for me. However, I’m not interested in the stale cookies and nasty punch that constitutes saying goodbye at this company.
Don’t worry about writing me a reference, even though I’m sure you’d be glad to recommend my work. I don’t need or want one. I don’t need references where I’m heading. So, consider our bridges burnt.
Happy To Be Gone

Should I tell potential employers about Health problems
Remember that these days the written word can be faxed, scanned emailed faster than you can walk out of the bosses door!
Don't say anything you wouldn't want a new boss to read.
NEVER COMPLAIN in your resignation letter about the job - people- the boss etc
Keep it brief and to the point.
Check the company policy of how many weeks you are supposed to give in notice
- Do not use your resignation letter to vent. Venting is not professional as you're on your way out the door!
- Keep your reasons for leaving positive - you're going to something, not running from something. Your letter should reflect this.
- Don't "burn the bridge". You don't know where you might connect with your former boss or others from your organization! Keep it positive!

Dear Ms. Boss,
I am writing to formally notify you that I am resigning from my position as Administrative Assistant with Classic Company. My last day of employment will be January 14, as per the responsibilities under the terms of my employment contract.
I appreciate the opportunities I have been given at Classic and your professional guidance and support. I wish you and the company success in the future.
This is to let you know that it is time to move on , I cannot stay in one place too long in case we grow roots .
There is more to life than putting up with you even if they do say " Better the devil you know than don't know " I will take my chances .
Hopefully I will be able to forget you ASAP

Remember that a resignation letter will end up in your employment file. Keep it short and simple, in case it ends up in a legal case down the line.

Love the Funny Resignation Letter!
Shelley on September 15, 2013:
the second is my fave gonna use that for sure
bulletproofworker on May 06, 2013:
Here's a thought: Just because one gives a professional resignation letter, doesn't mean the company will give a positive reference in return. I used to do employment backgrough checks and about 75% of the time the company bashed the employee. Quite illegal but they still did it!

Thanks for the visit Lek, I really enjoyed these funny resignation letters myself ! I hope you get a nice manager at your next job .
lek on August 08, 2012:

freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on July 31, 2012:
Seanorjohn, Thanks for the vote ! I like your idea for a resignation letter especially to a nasty boss lol !
seanorjohn on July 31, 2012:
I recommend writing a resignation letter on the back of a saucy postcard and posting it.
Voted up and useful
freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on April 13, 2012:
Thanks for the visit Kiwi Max ! It can be difficult finding the right words for a resignation letter . Have to be careful these days as a bad letter can ruin things for you if new bosses find out about it . Love the ones in here tho!
Max Zvyagintsev from New Zealand on April 12, 2012:
I've had to write one resignation letter this year, and it was my first letter too. However it was a lot nicer than these lol.
Hmm, maybe I next time I should advertise myself as "Looking for a crappy job with a terrible boss so I can practise writing great resignation letters" :)
freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on February 01, 2012:
Thanks for the visit . I loved the one about the harley as well . Sometimes you really wish you could leave a letter like that !
sylvia on February 01, 2012:
The one about the lost pass words and harley is hilarious
freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on December 31, 2011:
Thank you . Everyone needs all the help they can with findng & keeping a job .
freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on December 28, 2011:
Thanks ! I love reading things like this myself.
freecampingaussie (author) from Southern Spain on December 22, 2011:
Thanks for the visit . I usualy use personal reasons in an resignation letter . Leave on a positive note !
RLF on December 22, 2011:
Funny !! But very rude. I don't think anyone is going the write something like this in their resignation letters. You said it - "Rembember that these days the written word can be faxed , scanned emailed faster than you can walk out of the bosses door!" You should never resign on a negative note.

Funny, I'm still laughing about the video..Great hub
Thelma Alberts from Germany on June 27, 2011:
Very funny! I even read it loud to my husband so he laughed with me. I have written the wrong way resignation letter in my mind to my boss and would like it the funny way. However, I told my last boss in Germany my resignation in a better way. Who knows I still need her in the future. Thanks for sharing.

Hey...I'm the "boss" and I would probably cry if someone gave me one of these...na, just kiddin'. Really, this is very funny!!!

Humorous; and be careful who you tear down your bridges to in life, you may not always be able to put them back together.
Beth100 from Canada on April 05, 2011:
Funny ones, they are! I've seen some odd ones and you are so correct about not burning your bridges. Most industries involve a few key people and lighting one key person on fire in your letter of resignation can alienate you from the whole industry. Word of mouth and reputation are your keys to gaining employment elsewhere. Once you damage your reputation, there is no gaining it back. Excellent advice!
Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on January 16, 2011:
Great hub! Good advise.
