Coolest Resignation Letter … EVER

So in these tough economic times, the thought of someone quitting their job seems down right dumb.  However, we often hear of extenuating circumstances.  Such is the case for one W. Neil Berrett.  The guy found himself in between a rock and a hard place: personal needs that demanded his attention or paying his bills.

As a result, Berrett elected to spend more time with his family.  He said goodbye to his peeps at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and he did so in style.  There was no calligraphy, no funky photoshop job, and no “stick it to the man” message.  Instead, there was a gigantic, sweet, and delicious cake with an eloquently “iced” message.  Good luck Mr. Berrett, I hope the future treats you well.


Today I gave a two week’s notice of my intent to resign. The letter was written in frosting on a full sheet size cake. The cake was delicious and it was well received.

Dear Mr. Bowers,
During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.

However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27.
W. Neil berrett"
