Man resigns by giving ‘sorry for your loss’ card to his boss, and people loves him

A man RESIGNED from his job by giving his manager condolence card, and people are loving it.

The pictures of the card, shared on Twitter by the man’s partner Hannah, have been retweeted about multiple times and liked by 210,000 individuals.

The front of the card reads: “So very sorry for your loss.” Inside, Sam Baines, 22, had written: “My last day at work is the 28th July.” The text printed in the card reads: “Thinking of you at this difficult time.”

The card was from 22-year-old Sam Baines, who told INSIDER:

I’ve been working here for almost a year now and had to hand my notice in as I’m going back to university this September. We are a really close team and have a fantastic manager so we’re always joking around and having fun. I knew I had to do something a little more creative when giving my notice to try and get one more joke in before I left!

I knew my boss would find it funny so I wasn’t worried about how they’d take it. I came up with the idea because I was always joking about how much they’d miss me when I was gone, then thought a condolences card would be the perfect way to finish it off. It went down great and helped make a positive from an otherwise sad situation.

Thankfully, everyone saw the funny side, with Sam’s fellow employee Hannah saying: ‘Everyone was laughing and pretty amused with the card. It was done in good spirit and not as a petty reaction as some people think.’
