  8. I used to work for a HUGE gas company in a call center. One of the guys in the accounts department who I hadn't met before decided that just before quitting he'd send an email detailing exactly what was wrong with his management, his lack of a bonus, the lack of leadership, of an annual review and commonplace incompetence to everyone.

    And I mean everyone. He'd CC'd the UK head office, Asia Pacific Management, Australia operations, Uk operations and production... everyone. Thousands of people from production workers at gas plants to board directors in South African would have received it.

    Security went to escort him out but he was already gone.

    I remember reading at the bottom of the email that he'd finally got his dream job at Street Commodores (Or similar) magazine as a writer. A few years back I checked and he was editor of the thing.

    Couldn't make that shit up.

  11. Lowercase, here's one that comes to mind (and no, it wasn't me !) :

    A former industry colleague had simply had enough and was unhappy with his work conditions, lifestyle etc etc.

    Inflight, he utilised one of the systems onboard the flight deck (normally used to receive/send electronic messages to contact the company, receive printouts of every selected airport weather etc) to type up and send his resignation, a FIRST and never previously tried/attempted method.

    He was called 'upstairs' for 'tea & bickies' to explain his actions, being scolded for using company communication equipment for non-company related issues among other things.

    Apparently, his reply was very short and sweet - "I've already resigned", and walked out of the office.....
    He was hailed a legend from that day on :)

    Please take the time to peruse this document. If you reply to this message the replies will not be received.
    Regards,

    There's a three page word letter attached. It mentions industry specific stuff too much to be able to post it. But it's terribly scathing. What a way to go...

  13. I'm pretty sure I know who you're talking about QW, a good bloke as well.

    I reckon that guy who downed the drinks from the airline cart then jumped down the slide is a bit of a legend. Always wanted to have a non lethal airline crash so i could use one of those slides :)

  14. Yeah, would love to use those slides from the plane sometime :)

    QW, wow. I think that man is incredible!!

    Nickers - I think that man is a hero. :D

  15. A guy I use to work with was having a heated verbal one day and ended up saying " I quit " and as the boss walked of he said " I need it in writing " so the guy went to the toilet got a roll of paper and a black marker and wrote his resignation rolled it up and gave it to the boss

  19. lowercase : I never met the man, but yes..a hero in my eyes !

    mjt57 : Spot on dude.

    And for your information, I've had the pleasure in ONE attempt of the aircraft slide/raft (during induction training)...LOTS of fun ! Though it can turn ugly if the wrong technique is used. I'd hate to use it for real unless it's a ditching :)
