Woman Quits Job with Dry Erase Board, Calls Out Boss for Playing FarmVille at Work
This isn’t quite as dramatic as the JetBlue flight attendant who recently quit his job by sliding down his plane’s emergency chute, but it’s still quite a feat: A young woman named Jenny quit her job by emailing her office of twenty people a series of photos of herself holding a dry erase board and explaining her predicament there. She claims to have put up with her assistant job for a temperamental boss with “bad breath” because she wanted to be a broker: However, the last straw was when she overheard her boss using sexist language to describe her. When transferring a call, she heard him calling her a “HOPA,” which she deciphered as “hot piece of ass.”
Update: Yeah, not real; it was fun, though.
So she turned her boss’ system for sneakily monitoring employee Internet use against him, and if she’s to be believed, he does not come off looking well: While he spent just four hours per week on Scottrade (and 5.3 hours per week on TechCrunch … not sure if that’s a bad or a good thing), he spent almost twenty per week playing FarmVille.
“Although I don’t have another job … Something tells me I’ll be just fine :)” she concludes.
These photos — real or fake, they’re quite entertaining — are part of an epic 34-part series; TheCHIVE has them all.
