Talking Point: What have you fantasised about telling your boss when handing in your notice?

Today, The Argus reports on the strongly worded resignation letter published by a parish councillor who described his council as a embarrassment to the town.

James Butcher, who works for Conservative MP for Hove and Portslade Mike Weatherley, said that Sompting Parish Council was “worse than a children’s party”.

His letter pulls no punches - now we want to know what you wish you could tell a nightmare boss when handing in your notice. 

No names please - and keep it clean.

No where near as bad as the young man (Yorkshire I think) who in the early days of the National Lottery on the basis of a phone call from his wife (he was at work) proceeded to lay into his foreman and management in no uncertain terms before leaving for home with much gravitas.
A few days later in the local paper was the sad tale of wifey's mistake and the unfortunate predicament the family found themselves in.
His former employer let him stew for a few days before calling him in and giving him his job back which he accepted.
An amusing tale (true story) of a big hearted employer and how to eat 'humble pie' by the wheelbarrow load!

"Today's my 65th birthday and I'm retiring. You'll have to run the business yourself from now on.........."

(My boss is 30 years older than I am and, at 82 now, will be three days off of his 95th birthday on the day that I retire)

I would love to be able to just quit and tell my boss that the pills I take are actually to combat the anxiety attacks that he causes me, and are not vitamin pills. And that everyone who has quit before me, has done so because of him.

I would actually like to be able to quit my job , but I can't at the moment in this uncertain job market. The only respite I get is when he goes to play golf.

Dear sir,

As I am preparing to leave these premises for the last time I feel it incumbent upon me to inform you that stroking your ego will now be entirely up to you. To ensure that regular business continues with minimum disruption might I suggest the following.

Firstly, stop confusing 'will do' with 'done'. Secondly, do not forget that 'will send' requires an envelope, a stamp and a trip to the letterbox at not too lengthy an interval between the two. And lastly but not necessarily least, calling my name and handing the whole mess over to me for sorting will no longer be an option.

With sincere regrets at my lack of regret,
