Don’t let the email hit you on the way out

When you’ve decided to quit your job, you could simply tell your boss that you’re leaving in a short, simple, to-the-point resignation letter. Or you could do what Kim Lehmkuhl did.

The city clerk of Pleasant Hill, California, who had been criticized for sending out tweets during City Council meetings instead of keeping minutes, lambasted the council and citizenry in an email to the mayor. Here’s what she wrote on her way out the door:

“This has been an atrocious, incredibly depressing and mind-numbingly inane experience I would not wish on anyone. I wish the city the best of luck in finding some schmuck eager to transcribe every last misogynistic joke, self-indulgent anecdote and pathetic pandering attempt by council, and every tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, racist aside and NIMBY asshattery from the lovely council meeting frequent flyers, without which, surely our democracy could not flourish.”

As reported by SFGate.com, Lehmkuhl has moved on to another job, with an organization in Washington affiliated with the AFL-CIO. Presumably, there are fewer tinfoil hats in the new job.

Oh, you could also leave your job by singing a little tune:
