14 Screenshots Of People’s ‘I Quit’ Texts Because ‘Screw That, I Deserve Better’

There are several ways you can approach the topic of quitting a job with your superior. There is the civilized way, then there’s the middle-fingers-blazing way, and then there’s everything in between.

And the interesting part is that some have the opportunity to do any of these via text. Like, pick up your phone, type up a message, and that’s it, you’re no longer working there.

Of course they shared it with the internet. If anything, leaving a job is cathartic and sharing it on the internet is even more so.

Scroll down to check out this, and other entertaining texts telling a manager to shove it and quitting then and there. And while you’re at it, we’d appreciate your upvotes and your stories of how you needed to resort to quitting with a text.

More Info: Twitter

Quitting a job is hard, but thank god texting exists because some of us can indulge in the catharsis by quitting by text

Recently, Twitter user Raychael Sarah did just that, and got loads of love for doing so

Quite recently there has been a bit of an influx of people sharing screencaps of texts of them quitting after a lady named Raychael Sarah on Twitter shared her ‘I quit’ text.

In her text, she quite politely explained that she didn’t appreciate the tone that was used against her in a previous conversation with, assuming, a manager, explaining that she has always been a good and loyal employee and didn’t deserve it. So, good-bye.

She shared the texts with the people of Twitter and it went viral immediately, garnering over 360,000 likes with nearly 19,000 retweets, and a bunch of commenting.

And Raychael’s tweet inspired others to share their (and not their) texts of how they quit

And apparently a lot of people quit this way, as Raychael’s tweet inspired a slew of people sharing ‘I quit’ texts.

Now, these ranged from raging to wholesome to purely apathetic. In some cases, management was taking things too far, trying to manipulate the employee into ‘taking one for the team’ and threatening to fire them if they didn’t cooperate.

The now-viral Twitter thread featured a variety of texts: some were angry, others wholesome, and yet others—ok

Others sent a positive message and got a positive message, like this one where the person decided to leave because of their mental health, thanking the employer for the opportunity, and hoping they left a mark. They got some prayer hands and a wish of prosperity.

Raychael’s tweet managed to get over 360k likes and nearly 19k retweets

Yet others showed just how apathetic management can be as their response to “I’m gonna just put in my 2 weeks notice” was a simple, straightforward “ok”. Not even capitalized. The level of disrespect!

The list goes on and on, with some of the responses gaining thousands of likes and adding to the virality of the Twitter thread.

But bear in mind that this is just one of many places where people have shared their texts, as pointed out by one Twitter user who just now found out about a subreddit dedicated to this sort of thing—r/AntiWork.

But said Twitter thread is just one of many places to find these, as the r/AntiWork subreddit, for instance, is also home to them

You can check out the tweet and all of its responses in context in the now-viral thread here, but before you leave, keep scrolling as there’s more to see, and share your thoughts, or better, your texts and experiences with quitting in the comment section below!

These so called "supervisors" are why establishments are so short staffed. If I was the manager and reviewed these texts, I'd probably be firing the supervisors for their lack of respect and lack of tact in handling their staff appropriately.

They're "supervisors" because they have 2 weeks seniority over the other staff. Maybe the company should try training them?

It is really that hard for management/bosses to treat people like people? Like common decency? Mutual respect? This is just depressing.

Had someone in upper management once demand that everyone stay until the kitchen was clean, after I had already pulled a 12 hour shift, when the floors were only in bad shape because he rushed the contractor(leading for the concrete to not be finished properly and not be smooth enough to properly clean) and not giving us any proper tools to do the job. He wasn't even apologetic about it, he acted like we had been purposely filthifying the kitchen just to get at him or something.

My favorite resignation was when I gave them the 2 week notice and none of the supervisors replied or spoke to me again. As a manager now, I stress work life balance and my company backs that policy. If you treat people poorly, you're a bad person, a terrible manager, and you're costing the company a ton of money with all the interviewing and training that has to be done to replace someone. Not cool,and not smart.

I had a manager that did that to my friend. The other three of us on staff quit within the next 2 weeks because of it.
