Hassle-Free Resignation Letters Automatically Generated As Texts

From the creators of the BreakUp Text, the Quit Your Job app offers an easier way to inform your boss that you are leaving the company.

Creators of the Breakup Text  app, Lauren Leto and Jake Levine have teamed up with job-matching company The Ladders to create a new app that allows disgruntled employees to break up with their employers through a text.

The Quit Your Job app, which has its tongue firmly held in cheek, gives users different options as to why they are quitting. You can choose from “I’m sick of the corporate world,” “I want to get rich,” and “I found a new job” and the app will then compose slightly over the top messages on your behalf.


Here is a sample, found by  CNET:

Lucifer, Outside the office window today, there floated a butterfly. It danced in the wind; graceful and elegant. Turning my stare back inside, my desk mate gorged on a rather pungent tuna fish sandwich. A part of me died as I watched him miss his mouth slightly, globs of tuna and mayonnaise falling in chunks on his shirt. So I quit. I quit my job where I’m surrounded by ogres and am going to become rich as an exquisite dancer. I know I don’t have any experience, but if I start now I can be a prima ballerina in what, 10 years? Screw that. I want to make MONEY. I still quit. I’ll just find a joint in Vegas where I’m paid cash – exclusively in ones.

It may seem an odd pairing for Ladders, but in a press statement Alex Douzet, CEO and Co-founder of TheLadders jokingly explained:  “In an age when nearly everything can be done from the convenience of your smartphone, we thought job resignation was an area that needed some attention.” And once you quit your job via text, you can quickly find the next one on The Ladders, of course.
