Leaving work and reclaiming your self-esteem in front of your about-to-be former colleagues is the perfect send-off for someone cutting loose. The New York Post reports but doesn’t condone some of the more violent ways – like tossing a brick through the office window with your resignation letter on it. A tastier way, the newspaper suggests, is to bake your resignation with the wording on the icing.
