When your job sucks, there is no better feeling than making a huge scene on your way out the door! Well in all of history, we have a list of the 9 greatest “I Quit” moments…Here’s a few below and feel free to check out the rest here.
1. GREG SMITH, GOLDMAN SACHS
"I truly believe that this decline in the firm's moral fiber represents the single most serious threat to its long-run survival."
-- The former Goldman executive director, in a column in The New York Times.
2. CAROL BARTZ, YAHOO
"These people f----- me over. . . . Now they're trying to show that they're not the doofuses that they are."
— The former CEO, speaking about the Yahoo (YHOO) board, in an interview withFortune.
3. BRAD GARLINGHOUSE, YAHOO
"I've heard our strategy described as spreading peanut butter across the myriad opportunities that continue to evolve in the online world. The result: a thin layer of investment spread across everything we do and thus we focus on nothing in particular. I hate peanut butter. We all should."
-- This was not a resignation letter, but rather the Yahoo senior vice president expounding in 2006 on the company's problems in a strange internal document that has come to be known as the "Peanut Butter Manifesto." Garlinghouse left Yahoo two years later.
I’ve only worked two real jobs in my entire life so I unfortunately have yet to try the whole blaze of glory, but I have some ideas floating around in my head. How did you go out in a blaze of glory?
