Isn't that an S-Class?  Or really an E-Class. Little things.

Hmmm...no job, and now facing vandalism / public mischief charges.

That's a terrible way to quit, since it usually comes with criminal charges. Use those washable markers and leave $10 for a car wash.

Or just go old school:

I still give "I'm afraid I'm going to have to let you go as my employer" #1 in the list of great ways to quit.

Nice, the adverting stunt in the DM, is referencing the possibility that it might be an advertising stunt.  Meta is meta.

/(of a creative work) referring to itself or to the conventions of its genre; self-referential.

Why be worried about burning bridges when where you came from was crappy anyway?
Spray paint is worthless unless it is used as a fire starter. Next time, just burn the guy's car down.
Less evidence. Bridge burning bonus.

Uh oh!  Better get Maaco!

Meh.

Mercedes is made by Germans.  Germans were Nazi's.  Therefore the boss is a Nazi sympathizer.  Subby is a Nazi by proxy.

All Nazi's, all the time.

I've had two memorable quits.

First was at a golf course when I was in college. Boss was an asshole and I'd had enough so I loaded my cart up with various work equipment and left it randomly around the course. Then I parked the cushman (cart) off in a field and walked to my car. Left and never went back.

A few years later.....

I was working a field sales gig and had a huge asshole as a boss (imagine that). I'd finally had enough and decided the job wasn't at all for me, right as he scheduled a visit to town for customer visits. I told him not to worry about renting a car and sent a full two day itinerary (completely made up and geographically impossible to keep). I called hr and put in my resignation while he was in the air. He called my phone for about two hours and then either figured it out or hr called and told him. I had only been there for a short time and it has nothing to do with my current career so I've never had to explain it.

Because doing so has a bad habit of biting you in the ass later.

A guy I worked with gave notice and became an unsufferable prick until mamagement told him to GTFO.  Dude was all "HA HA I'm getting a week's pay for freeeeee."  His next job didn't work out and he had the balls to try to get his old job back (ha ha indeed).  The next couple of places had people who knew some of our people and he didn't get those jobs either.

It's far better to not burn bridges.

Yep, totally legit

Well, that is definitely burning a bridge with style!  He must have been steaming mad when he landed.  LOL. There were times in my past that I wished I could have stuck it to the boss, but I have had mostly jobs tied to my career.

Back in the day I had a job at a golf course and my asshole boss told me my first task was to ride around looking for random equipment. Before I could do that, I had to dig a cart out of the muck in the middle of a field.....

No it doesn't. You don't understand the point I am making. If you hated that place, it's okay to just turn and burn. Why would you ever care in some menial, high turnover bullshiat job?
If you're in a career that is tight-nit, and depends on networking, and you have to kiss everyone's ass "just in case" then you are doing it wrong. In other words, those ideas about not burning bridges are fear based garbage. Let the menial fear you as the bridge burner, and own it.

Be nice though, and things usually always go better. If you are left with no choice but to turn and burn, I say do it BIGLY.

Your pal,
Flaming Shoes

I just resigned 4 days ago so I'm getting a kick...
But, seriously, I did. After 7 years of loyal service, the sociopathic law talker has been systematically trying to dismantle my reputation, credibility and confidence. All things she is not responsible for creating/developing in the first place. Apparently, accepting a new position that's better for you and your family is a war crime. Still, don't burn bridges.

wildcardjack: Karma has closed the businesses I left. I don't have to seek anything more.


Two former jobs closed after I left.  The one that closed a week after I left, after the boss swore to everyone that they weren't closing ever, was the best one.  I couldn't stand any of the coworkers, and what few customers we still had, customers were getting fed up with my coworkers as well, told me they only kept coming on the days I worked.  So the day after I left, business dropped off rapidly.  Just a pizza place, but still, ego booster.

I don't know when the other closed, but it was well overdue for many reasons.  Mostly I hope karma put that owner in jail.

Depends. Positions of authority have a tendency to attract/create assholes. I've had 2 asshole bosses (and have plenty of stories) and plenty of stellar ones as well. I'd ask how many asshole bosses they've had and how many stellar bosses. Also ask what makes a stellar boss.
