    Coz I’m about to. I know all that shit about not burning bridges but these people have fucked me and my family around so royally I’m practically a windsor. Will post full speech once finished. It’s a work of passive aggressive beauty.

    Anyone else taken the opportunity to dig the knife in?

    I’m going to copy in the other 300,000 employees around the globe so that’s pretty much doing that

    I’m almost 40. At this point in my career, life whatever I don’t give a fuck. I will gain immense enjoyment by disclosing certain things I’ve learned in my tenure about these fucking parasites.

    It might not lose you anything either (although only time will tell on that front) but it still gains you nothing.

    It depends on the situation. My ex company were continually out of order to our clients. Taking them to the cleaners and causing them all sorts of bother was greatly satisfying and allowed me to get some sort of closure. It also improved the service.

    I think it depends on how personal it is. There might be better ways to go around making life difficult for them.

    I once emailed a mildly abusive email of resignation to the whole company (a couple of hundred people). It gained me nothing but was immensely satisfying.

    Bloke at my old place emailed a photo of someone catching an elephant turd in a bag to the whole company.

    'My job was worse than this.'


    Might have gained him nothing but he was our fucking hero for a morning.

    Years back when working as a holiday rep in the South of France two of the girls from another site a few hours away arrived one Saturday afternoon in the company car which they'd nicked upon walking off the job and were driving hard for Calais pursued by the regional manager a couple of hours behind them in a hastily rented hire car :D

    Puddy_Tat meh

    dunno really.

    will just be seen as 'bitter ex employee' by management and won't make any difference to the way they behave


    what chances are there of needing a reference from this organisation in future?

    what chances are there of meeting current colleagues / bosses in future either in a different organisation or as potential clients of new employer?

    that means - unless you've got a heck of a lot of money put by, you've got maybe another 30 years of working life to go...

    3 times i’ve written fairly damming critiques on my way out of projects, all I resigned from because the specifics of the situations were literally life threatening for the people on the jobs

    All three resulted in projects being closed down completely or in the form they were running in

    Probably not “typical” as they were in Syria, Kabul and Baghdad:D

    That’s sounds too intriguing not to ask what line of work you’re in?

    I have no money, just a few k debt. But I’m a vindictive man when someone fucks with me, I appreciate that’s not a great quality but that’s that. I’ve got another job and memories are short in my business.

    I meant to lay in with both barrels on leaving my last job. I had a great set of points in my head about how they had royaly fucked everything.

    I ended up being talked to stay about, if just as bank staff. I've not worked for them a fair few months, but got paid to sit in a classroom and do training for a few days recently. :hmm:

    In the other direction here, but my ex runs a small company of about 50 employees. On one day, two happened to be leaving. One was a guy he liked and who had worked there for years, and the other was this woman he’d never got on with cos she was very up herself, quite careerist and rubbed him up the wrong way.

    At the end of the day he had to say something before they went to the leaving drinks. And he said, well there’s some good news and some bad news. The bad news is J is leaving (the guy), but the good news is N is too!

    She ran into the loos crying, as you would do, and he rung me panicking. I said, why’d you say that ffs? He said it was the only thing that came to mind. I had to talk him through going to apologise to her. Astonishingly they remained ‘friends’ (although I think that was cos she wanted to for professional reasons). I see her about still and still feel bad.

    A colleague left last Friday and apparently was quite rude at in his leaving speech, unfortunately I missed it. My last day is this Friday, the company & management are fucking horrendous to work for but the people I work with are nice so doesn't seem to be any point in sticking the boot in. They gave me an exit questionnaire to fill out, I put some constructive criticism in it but might not even hand it in to HR, it won't make any difference.

    equationgirl Respect my existence or expect my resistance

    I'm due to leave this Thursday.

    It's hugely tempting to stick the boot in but I'm being made redundant so it would just make me seem bitter, so I probably won't.

    I am considering drawing cocks on the meeting room flip charts, a few pages in, instead though.

    The trouble with doing this is that out of those 300,000 there will be quite a few who think that you're a bitter dickhead for doing it, and Sod's law dictates that one of them will be on the interview panel for a job you want in the future.

    No one has ever done this in my (really big) company. This is because nobody has access to group email addresses and no one gets a leaving do. I have absolutely no idea why that could possibly be. :D

    One of my lot got to the presentation he had to do to the board of management at the end of the graduate programme, specifically what he'd learnt and what he wanted to do next in his career.

    What he presented was just a picture of a car bomb going off, what he'd learnt was that he didn't want to work for an arms company any more, and what he wanted to do was resign, which he did right there & then. Fair play to him :D

    And 299,900 of those people will have no clue who you are, won’t care what you think and will just press delete without doing more than skimming the first sentence rolling their eyes.
