If you already know you’re going to quit, you may as well do it in style.
Imagine that your boss suddenly raced away from the building after quitting. The office would never stop talking about it! Whenever times get tough, people will joke about the time that the manager fled the building. People always talk about their dreams, but that guy put his money where his mouth was and executed a perfect final day.
When people are laid off, it’s often done in the early morning or outside of normal work hours. That way, if the person throws a fit or gets emotional, other people aren’t around to see it. Quitting, on the other hand, also comes with some strong emotions. But since quitting is on the employee’s terms, there’s a much bigger chance that the office will get to watch that person stride out of the office on their last day.
