"You Will Never Tell Me To F--K Off Again": 15 Times People Quit Over Text That Were So Satisfying

For a lot of people, work is no fun at all, just something to slog through at companies that don't care or appreciate them run by bosses who are real assholes.

Two people in separate scenes: The top has a woman with curly hair saying, "Your boss is an asshole." The bottom has a man with dreadlocks responding, "Yeah."

Most of those people would LOVE to quit, but they aren't in a position to do so with the economy being what it is. That's why it's so satisfying when someone says to hell with it and quits while giving their boss a piece of their mind.

Seth Meyers is sitting at a desk on a late-night show set with hands raised, accompanied by a caption, "I QUIT!"

Want some examples? Check out these 15 people who epically quit via email, text, or letter:

1.First, let's give it up for this guy who told his boss what he will NEVER do ever again:

Email from "John and Mari" to all: "Effective immediately, I quit. And Anthony, you will never tell me to fuck off again. Thank you for your time."
