If you asked most experts the best way to go about quitting your job, they’d probably recommend you follow a few traditional steps like giving two weeks notice, not burning any bridges on your way out the door, and resisting the urge to hide a can of opened tuna fish somewhere in your office to get passive-aggressive revenge on all of the coworkers you couldn’t stand.
However, there are certain situations where you don’t have to worry too much about abiding by the unwritten rules of employment— especially when you’re working at a dead-end job and couldn’t care less about getting a reference. I’ve seen plenty of videos and heard stories of people who’ve decided to go out with a bang, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen someone come close to topping a guy who recently decided to quit his job at Popeyes in style.
In a video that’s making the rounds on Twitter, the employee enters the restaurant with a hype man and a sound system in tow to announce his resignation before bursting into a song that is so much better than it has any right to be.
Knowing how the internet works, this guy will probably land a record deal by the end of the day. I know it might be a bit premature, but I think that “I Don’t Really Want To Work Here No More” might just already be a top candidate for song of the summer.
Eat your heart out, “Despacito.”
