In our lives, at one time or another, we have all dreamed of quitting our “dreaded” job in a (possibly) somewhat creative manner. The vision of walking out during a meeting with your demanding boss, just not showing up one day or sending a rude text message to tenure your resignation has probably crossed your mind at one time. With the many thoughts going through your mind, did you ever consider creating a cartoon?

Well, a New York City lawyer quit her job in possibly the most creative way ever: in cartoon form. As featured in YahooShine, the unnamed attorney, who decided to leave her high-pressure corporate gig to pursue her dream of being a cartoonist and illustrator, drew the visual to explain why she was resigning. Then she posted the series, “My Life in Law (a Short Story).”

While her story is very whimsical and clever, her approach is probably not for everyone; however, her story did spark a memory of mine from a previous role when I realized “serving just isn’t for me.” (Mind you, I was a 20-year-old restaurant server until dropping a tray full of food all over a table full of kids. No one was injured, but my manager and I both mutually decided that should probably be my last night as a restaurant server.

Does this story spark any thoughts from you about a previous resignation?
