    I have been offered and I have accepted a new job.

    I need to submit my resignation letter tomorrow and I want to be the best letter ever. I am not wanting to burn bridges or flame anyone. I really liked where I worked. I am moving to a global company that will have me all over the world and home on the weekends.

    I don't have any idea's and I don't want to write a typical, boring letter.

    Toss in your idea's

    Get some nice stationary and hand write it. That would be unique in my book.

    My first thought was to print it up on one of those huge 2' x 3' cards but I don't think they have 'happy resignation' categories at Hallmark.

    ..yes.. I know...

    Yep. Money is great there but I was bored and I needed a change. New Company is great. I get to commute to Asia and Europe for work.

    Out on Sunday, in on Thursday

    Hell, if that's the case then even I'd work there, and that's saying a lot.

    ohh i have another....

    Dear boss,
    Due to some extraordinary circumstances, I contracted syphillis from your wife. I must now tend to my health and therefore regretfully resign from my position. But do not worry, a prospective job is in my future so there is no need to worry about me.
    Thank your wife for me,
    Matteo

    As many of you are aware, today is my last day at GC. It is time for me to move on and I want you to know that I have accepted a position as "Trophy Husband". This decision was quite easy and took little consideration. However, I am confident this new role represents a welcome change in my life and a step up from my current situation.

    While I have a high degree of personal respect for GC, and I have made wonderful friendships during my time here, I am no longer comfortable working for a group largely populated by gossips, backstabbers and Napoleonic personalities. In fact, I dare say that I would rather be dressed up like a pinata and beaten than remain with this group any longer.

    I wish you continued success in your goals to turn vibrant, productive, dedicated associates into an aimless, shambling group of dry, lifeless husks.

    May the smoke from any bridges I burn today be seen far and wide.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Matteo

    Matt...

    i had this same question a little over a year ago... You're right not to burn any bridges, so just right something professional, but from the heart... Explain to them that you really enjoyed your position with their company, but that an opportunity has come along that's really beneficial to the health and growth and general well being of your family and you'd be a loon not to take it. Also explain in the letter that, should things not work out where you're going, you would be humbled and honored if they would take you back...

    If you want to be an asshol3 without really seeming like it, put down that you'd be happy to give good references to any prospective employees they found to fill you position... :)
