The time has come. You're finally quitting your job. Might as well go out with a bang! Don't worry, Even if you go a little bit overboard, what are they going to do? Fire you?

To highlight how satisfying it can be to leave your employer in style, Bored Panda put together a new list of people who just did. From making a meme to naming one of the urinals after themselves, here are some of the most creative "resignation letters" ever written.

To learn more about quits, we contacted Germany-based personal growth and career coach Trish Lee.

"There are numerous reasons why a person should consider leaving their job," Lee, who also creates content for Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube, told Bored Panda. "For example, if they are surrounded by toxic colleagues (and they've tried to improve the situation by talking to their manager or said colleague but nothing changes), the company provides no continuous personal development opportunities, or their job isn't even something they want to do—maybe they got into it just to live someone else's dream. Or maybe they're offered a great long-term career opportunity elsewhere."

If someone is serious about quitting but aren't quite sure yet, Lee said it would be a good idea to start by simply considering the pros and cons of staying vs. leaving. "You can even write everything down on paper or an Excel sheet for better clarity!"

"Try to do some background checks on the new company if it fits your personal growth needs, financial needs, technical skills, future career goals, company culture (check reviews on Glassdoor, Kununu, and Google)," the career coach advised.

"If still in doubt, accept the invitation to go for an interview (for this, it's important to have a list of questions ready!). Clarify any doubts you may have about the new job or company background."

Lee highlighted that going for an interview doesn't automatically mean you're agreeing to the offer but it can provide valuable information and make your decision a lot easier. "It is just an opportunity for you to have a deeper understanding of the job and whether it suits you, while it gives the recruiter a chance to get to know you better if you suit the job—think of it like going for a first date! It doesn't mean you're gonna get married."

The personal growth and career coach reassured that when someone is good at what they do and believes in their capabilities, there will always be a stream of opportunities that will come their way.

But with that being said, Lee doesn't think that quitting your job on the spot is a smart move. "If you resign too soon but, for example, haven't got sufficient savings to tide you over the next few weeks or months until you find a new job, you are putting yourself in unnecessary stress."

"The interview process (from application to the actual interviews to signing a contract) can potentially take months in some companies!"

Unless, of course, you're in a really bad situation, like "the VP of your company or colleagues are sexually harassing you or bullying you in some horrible way. Which by the way, please report it to the police and consider sharing your experience online (Glassdoor, Kununu, and Google)."

At the end of the day, trust your gut. "Doing a job because of the salary is a good form of extrinsic motivation, but it can never give you true happiness and a sense of purpose," Lee said.

"When selecting a job, it is important to do something that gives your life meaning and joy (this is how intrinsic motivation and a sense of fulfillment is created). It really doesn't matter if that means being a bartender, a cashier, a hairdresser, an entrepreneur, an engineer, whatever. Your position or salary does not equate to your self-worth. This is a misconception many people have."

Your aim, according to Lee, should be to find a place where you are about 80% happy, leaving the rest 20% for possible minor inconveniences that both you and the company can work on in the future.

I hope these resignation letters will inspire you towards positive change.

More proof that you shouldn't put up with stingy asshole bosses. You're always worth more than they pay you, or else they would have replaced you with someone cheaper.
