Sorry subs, that is FREAKING AWESOME. I'm so jealous I hadn't thought of that. Oh man, that's just Bill Murray levels of arrogance. I love it!! I love this woman and I want to have her babies.

There's a grain of truth in every joke.

This is funny and cool, though.

I like scented candles, she looks like she used high quality soy wax too, and this would be a great way to leave a company.

Wheeeeee, let's continue to glorify the establishment of toxic workplaces.

She handed in her notice in June 2021 and has been loving her new job.

Very considerate of her to give them more than twelve months' notice.

And the candles all smelled of her vagina.  The end.

I know women like this from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Absolutely beautiful and completely obnoxious. I've also met their moms. The young ladies have about 15 years of good looks in them then nothing but shiatty personalities. I guess they should live it up while they can.

Some people in this thread have no sense of humor.

I thought that this was priceless, and the fact that she put her picture on the candles was the cherry on the top of its hilariousness.

I also love that everyone on the job was cool with the joke.

And the candles were arranged to form the PIN of the account she locked when she left (but managed to blame it on the manager).  But management is paying Microsoft to decrypt those emails.

Well she called it a joke so it must be true. So let's just ignore the vain way she presents herself and pretend she's on the right track.

"She added: "My mum thought it was a terrible idea. Then she saw how many views my video had and changed her mind!"

There you go. "I wasn't on board with your behavior before, but since you got good ratings you're obviously the real deal! You can't argue with a million TikTok followers."

I think that she meant that her mom thought it was a terrible idea to quit her job, not a terrible idea to give the candles to her old co-workers.  If she has a lot of followers and has been able to monetize that with candle sales then good for her.

That's actually pretty awesome!
She's definitely a Farker.
 
2022-08-19 1:23:36 PM  
She looks exactly like I thought she would.

I would also bet money that the people in the office are glad to be rid of her.

My last job, I was the last of 4 people in my position to leave, and they hadn't back-filled ANYONE yet (and it had been MONTHS since the first guy left).  The rest of the department completely understood; we were all underpaid and overworked.  On my last day they had a party; they had a "You're dead to us" cake for me, and I gave them a "sorry for your loss" card.  It was all intended and taken in good fun...

On my last day of being in the office, I'm sneaking into the boss' office moving the ceiling tile back and placing the most stinky cheese I can find up into the ceiling.

I know for certain that when I left my prior job that it caused issues with workflow and productivity, my being the principal source of workflow an productivity was the main reason why I left that job in the first place.  That said, I did not feel any need to burn bridges as I left.  I gave more notice than I needed to and offered to pivot from working to training the remaining teammates for those last four weeks.

In the last couple of days it finally dawned on the old team that I really was leaving, and that they really were going to have to do the work that I had been doing.  I could read the panic on their faces.  I didn't have to do a damn thing to get my little bit of schadenfreude either, no petty pranks or withholding of anything.

I can't even take a day off without finding coverage for me.

So I don't know WTF the company is going to do when I leave.

It can't be a joke if the person seems vain when doing it?

Yes. Joked. Surely they all love her.

Geez, it's a joke.

I understand you wanna be mad at pretty girls, but they're allowed to have a sense of humor too.

The fact that you made it about her appearance says more about you than her.

I worked in a division that was created for, and had plenty of work for, 5 guys, but over the years they let the staffing attrit down to just two of us. They treated me like shiat the last couple of years and so I planned my escape to be a surprise. Got clearance months ahead to take the last two weeks of November off, starting just ahead of Thanksgiving. End of the day, my last day, I sent in my 2-week notice, effective same day.  My idjit narcissist boss, true to form, ignored the email in her usual passive-aggressive way and so was very shocked mid-day the next day when she read it, discovered I was a no-show ...and everybody else but her already knew I was gone.

I was always good to my clients though, and had not left any of them in the lurch with unfinished work. But I know for a fact that the last guy left behind, now doing the workload previously assigned to 4 guys in normal times, was not happy, that my job title classification was no longer re-fillable, and the organization's HR process would take up to a year to re-fill my empty seat.

And I was super-popular with clients, they always wanted me to be "their guy", they asked for me by name when they came to my boss for our work, and would email my boss saying: "We saw what Mr. Pie did for XYS division's project, can he do the same kind of thing for US???"I know that pissed her off, because she was always trting to paint a picture of me in employee evaluations as a hot mess that was bad at client relations.

I saw one such re-assigned project, done by the sole surviving guy, that was supposed to be done in my "style" - it was nothing like what I had done, not even close. Really slapdash and low-skill, as one does when literally drowning under deadline pressure, but also that was the kind of work my former boss wanted us all to do: minimal compliance, box-checking rote work, uncreative and unappealing but technically delivered. Client expectations were much higher and i'm sure they complained.

It's a special kind of schadenfreude to know the boss hates you but can't do without you and will take blame for losing you.

We've somehow crossed that tipping point where employees are very willing & able to sing 'Take this job & shove it'.
I wonder if companies will adjust their attitudes accordingly?

gshepnyc: Subby - It's a joke.


I'd be more inclined to believe it was a joke if she didn't have an 80s glamour airbrushed photo that just screams I'M AN INFLUENCER ON SOCIAL MEDIA picture on the candle.

oldfarthenry: I wonder if companies will adjust their attitudes accordingly?


Nope.

/Only if the board of directors approves it. Remember for them it's all about pleasing the stock-holders and getting the most cash they can in the fastest way possible.

No one cares for the people who actually do the work. They are all "redundant" and can be replaced.

"Ironically on my last day I burst into tears when they got me leaving gifts.
"They all joked then that it was my loss not theirs."
"

Sounds pretty tongue-in-cheek to me and like she had a good relationship with her co-workers.
But no, she's pretty and uses social media, so she must just be a total b*tch.
