How to Quit Your Job if You Want a Radical Career Change
A resignation letter accusing a boss of bigotry and sleeping with a coworker at the office goes viral on Twitter. Too bad its author will probably never be able to get a decent position in his field again.

It is an email that will probably make most senior managers squirm in their seats.
An employee at a media agency in London has decided to send a leaving speech detailing his grievances with a company manager to all members of staff.
And worse still – that email has now gone viral after it was posted online, with its hashtag trending on Twitter.
In the email Mr Allen also alleges the manager has jokingly referred to the Paralympics as the ‘Spastic Olympics’ and openly claimed to be proud ‘not to have a drop of Jewish blood in him’.
He claims he ‘regularly made sexist and other bigoted remarks’ and ‘took a female colleague out for a drink on the day he interviewed her, then later took her back to the MEC offices that night and had sexual relations with her in the meeting rooms on the 3rd floor’.
He said the allegations were ‘common knowledge throughout the team’ and said ‘it is hard to fathom that such a man is responsible for the work well-being of over 30 staff’.
Before signing off the message he wrote, ‘I am writing this message in order to expose the failings and protect others in future’ and ‘I am a good human being who treats people with respect.’
‘Not one thing on this email has been exaggerated or made up. This is my truth to you all.
‘No doubt I fully expect the above to be ripped apart but as long as the truth is out there then that’s all I can do.’
