When most people decide to leave a job these days, you can expect to get the obligatory companywide e-mail: “It was great to work with all of you, stay in touch, I’m excited about my next opportunity," blah blah blah.
Then there’s this guy.
Going Concern, a news website for accountants, has obtained an e-mail from a Baltimore accountant who announced last week that he was leaving his boring desk job to become ... Batman.
The e-mail, posted here, reads in part:
“As many of you know, I never imagined myself as a mild-mannered accountant. I always thought that there was a greater destiny out there for me, a tale of wonder and adventure, a story most epic. And so, after careful consideration and consultation with my closest companions, I’ve decided to leave PwC in order to become a costumed vigilante of the night.”
Of course he must be joking … we think.
Readers, what do you think of the e-mail? Have you ever left a job in a memorable way?
