Amazing (Picture: @bitchitshan/Twitter)Handing in your notice is never ideal, regardless of whether your job is great or rubbish.
There are ways to make the situation less awkward (or more, depending on your approach) though, including handing your boss a sorry for your loss card.
These cards are normally reserved for deaths, but given how dead your office will likely be without your presence, they seem fitting enough.
Sam Baines, 22, from Sheffield decided that’s exactly how he was going to leave his call centre job recently, and his efforts were shared by colleague Hannah.
Keeping it fuss-free (but still abiding by the ‘written notice’ rule) Sam got a condolence card, and wrote inside ‘My last day at work is the 28th July. Love, Sam x’.

Hannah’s tweet of the card has racked up over 300k likes on the social media site, with Sam being interviewed by INSIDER.
He said, ‘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!
