Comments on: Financial Preparedness: Creating Your Resignation Letter One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bryan Tue, 31 May 2016 16:28:14 +0000 Leave it up to you to come up with a creative twist to the resignation letter my friend ARB! Sending one to the working world in general.

For the most part I like working with my coworkers, I just don’t enjoy the constant change, re-orgs, and new strategies. I have become burnt out on hearing any new grand plan from our leadership. 🙁

By: ARB Thu, 26 May 2016 22:42:31 +0000 My resignation letter will be the image of Calvin from “Calvin And Hobbes” mooning followed by a middle finger.

Just kidding. It would be a professional one. I not only wouldn’t want to burn bridges, but I honestly like my boss and coworkers. The customers I can’t stand, but my fellow bankers and tellers have been flat out awesome and I don’t have a nasty letter I would ever want to deliver.

But you know what would be a great exercise for fun? One that you should consider posting once you finally leave? A resignation letter written to the working world itself. Not your employer or a company, but a letter written to the very concept of active income employment itself. Because for me, while I don’t have anything bad I really want to say to my boss, I would really like to lay into the very concept of dedicating your life to working for someone else and making somebody ELSE money. I’d have lots of things to say about–or to, in this exercise–modern day corporate wage slavery.

I think that resignation letter will be the sweetest of all.

As fun as it was writing the nasty resignation letter, it is uncanny and darn right scary how easy the professional one was to type. I guess that says something about how I have “assimilated into the machine” and have adopted the “corporate speak”.

I think I need to run – not walk away quickly!!! 🙂

It definitely makes it more real when you actually write the resignation letter. Even though I was doing this in fun, I am also working on the version my boss will receive.

The big question is when will I deliver it?


By: Stockbeard Fri, 20 May 2016 17:15:04 +0000 Man, I need to start seriously thinking about what my resignation letter will look like… in the meantime, thanks for the laughs 🙂

By: Steve @ Think Save Retire Fri, 20 May 2016 00:21:58 +0000 Ha! Love it, especially the fact that you addressed your resignation letters to Bill Lumburgh! And I couldn’t agree more, taking the professional route is absolutely the best way to go. I did that recently with my boss and feel like the remaining time I have at my organization will be very, very positive. 🙂
