Just about everyone with a job has fantasized about they day they quit. First, you turn in your two weeks notice, then you get to become a short-timer and no one expects anything from you for the end of your stint.

Then, you might get a cake or a happy hour in your name.

There's also the part where you get to tell everyone how you really feel about them:

"John in sales, I never really liked you."

"Reba in accounting, I'll actually miss your smiling face."

"Jason in marketing, everyone talks smack about you behind your back."

Plus, there's a subtle sense of petty joy that comes with being able to willfully leave a workplace where other people are stuck slaving away. Especially if the new gig pays better.

Sam Baines, a 22-year-old who worked at a call center in Sheffield, England found a clever way to tell his boss he was leaving. he sent him a condolences card.

The front of the card reads: "So very sorry for your loss."

On the inside, Baines wrote: "My last day at work is the 28th July."

The card was shared on Twitter by his his soon-to-be former coworker Hannah, where it has earned over 430,000 likes and 76,000 retweets.

Some funny folks on Twitter responded with their goofy going-away notices.

Baines had to quit his job because he's returning to his university in September. "We are a really close team and have a fantastic manager, so we're always joking around and having fun," he told Insider. "I knew I had to do something a little more creative when giving my notice to try and get one more joke in before I left!"

Hannah says that everyone in the office took the joke well. "Everyone was laughing and pretty amused with the card," she said. "It was done in good spirit and not as a petty reaction as some people think."

According to his coworkers it appears as though Baines will definitely be missed at the job and his going away joke was so funny it's doubtful that he'll soon be forgotten.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
