Unless you have been pretty fortunate in life so far, chances are you’ve endured a period of office work or any other kind of work that sucked.

There are plenty of things about the nature of employment that can make it extremely unpleasant. From long hours and boring, unsuitable work, to colleagues that irritate and a smug, overbearing boss, the fantasy of telling them all where to shove it and giving your resignation letter in class can become overwhelmingly tempting!

This list compiled by Bored Panda is about funny people who did exactly that. Forget about leaving on good terms, politely handing in your two weeks notice and not burning bridges. Burn them down, baby! Down to the floor! Do it with a funny poster so they'll remember! These people acted out their fantasies, hatched in those dark, miserable days of workplace misery, and flounced out with a flourish. Scroll down to check out the list of the best ways to quit job below, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite!

God...Home Depot. I worked there, and got put on unpaid leave due to migraines. I also almost passed out from heat exhaustion after making a sarcastic comment earlier that about lack of water outside and 'faking' passing out. So, HR and the manager thought I was joking, and insisted I come back to work when I had not been medically cleared. I went in to take in a doctors note excusing me for another day and they expected me to work THAT DAY. I came in wearing cut off shorts and a tie dye tshirt. I'm like "do I LOOK like I'm ready to work". So I quit then and there, and of course, they insisted on written resignation, etc. Never been to that store since. Also reported to OSHA the lack of drinking water in garden department.
