9: Use the State of Montana’s Facebook page
This one was a bit of a mistake, but in 2012, a social media manager at an advertising agency accidentally posted his resignation on a client’s Facebook page instead of his own personal page. In this case, the client happened to be the state of Montana!

KTVA reporter Charlo Greene quit her job on live TV. She had been previously reporting on The Alaska Cannabis club without disclosing her involvement in it. She then revealed to the show’s viewership that she was the owner of the club and would be quitting her job with KTVA to pursue the fight for the legalization of cannabis full-time.
She concluded her last broadcast by saying: “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f**k it, I quit.”

In 2010, flight attendant Steven Slater left his job as a flight attendant by deploying a plane’s emergency exit slide to leave his place of work. He is reported as yelling “I’ve had it. That’s it”, as he slid away.
Unfortunately he was also fined $10,000 for the stunt.
