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.


Business

Explaining your life to extended family can be a huge chore, particularly when you're a single adult woman navigating the traditional pressure of being asked if you'll have children or when you'll "settle down."

Even if you figure out a pithy way to describe your life and answer all of the predictable yet exhausting questions, when you're at a large family function it's likely you'll have to repeat the refrain a dozen times for different relatives. In these times, it would truly be ideal to just have an informational pamphlet handy that lays it all out for everyone.

To this very end, the Twitter user Melissa Croce decided to reclaim her time and make catching up with relatives as easy as possible.

After joking with her coworkers about making a personal brochure to hand out at her cousin's wedding, Croce committed to the bit and created a hilarious pamphlet explaining what her job does, why she's single, and all the FAQ about living in NYC.


The brochure cover shows her face alongside the words: "Who's that girl. So you haven't seen Melissa Croce in a few years here's a primer. She's beauty and she's grace, she'll say it to your face."


She then dives into the nitty gritty of what her job involves, where she lives in NYC, and what it all means to her.


Without a doubt, though, the best part of the brochure is the Choose Your Own Adventure laying out the reasons she's single, and shutting down all the predictable concern trolling.


People on Twitter immediately fell in love with the concept of a Choose Your Own Adventure about single life, and a personal brochure in general.





In fact, Croce received several commission requests from people desperately wanting brochures for their upcoming trips home.





Truly, Croce has given both joy and inspiration to countless people online with this viral joke.
