Great Ways To Quit Your Job

Posted: Updated:

Today on "The List" we're talking about all those great ways you can quit your job...you know the kind that get you noticed...your 15 minutes of fame shall we say...

The inspiration for "The List" today is of course this viral video of Marina Shifrin quitting her job at "Next Media Animation" basically she dances through the companie's office in the middle of the night to Kanye West. Next Media Animation later responded with a dance video of their own, wishing Marina well and announcing that...they're hiring! Also, that their office has a pool! Uploaded to youtube this week, her video already has nearly 9-million views.

Here are some other memorable "take your job" moments.

  1. Dave Chappelle probablly left the most lucrative job....He broke his contract with Comedy Central back in 2005...It happened during mid-production of his popular show....he flew off to South Africa leaving behind a $50-million dollar deal!
  2. This software designer utlized the skills he was hired for by sending his boss and Error Message, we had to blur some of the more choice words. The more low tech version would be the Dry Erase Board Message...eventually this one was dubbed a hoax, but the gal behind it temporarily got America's attention.
  3. Perhaps our favorite though is Steven Slater, you remember this guy, he was the flight attendant who cursed out a customer, grabbed a beer, and then slid down the emergency chute. He was ultimately arrested.

By the way, back to our inspiration Marina, on the youtube page featuring her video she has the message you want to deal with me? and her website address.
