Funniest Ways to Quit

Quit … With Food!

When you think cake, you think birthdays, celebrations, couples gingerly feeding each other sweet confections on their wedding days and … quitting? Somehow the two just don’t go together, right? Wrong.

Check out W. Neil Berrett’s resignation letter. Instead of handing HR a paper document declaring his liberation from the company, Berrett decided to convey his intent to resign on a full sheet cake.

He wrote:

“Dear Mr. Bowers,

During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy, and whim.

However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27.


W. Neil Berrett"

And what’s better than quitting with just food? Quitting with food and drink!
