Resignation letters

According to Indeed, a resignation letter notifies the employer of the employee’s intention to leave their position.

In fact, she said, these letters typically include the employee’s last day of work, a statement of gratitude, and any additional information requested.

“Regardless of your reasons for leaving your job, inform your employer of your decision in a positive and respectful manner,” reads the article published by Indeed. “As a professional document, resignation letters should not include complaints about the company, your manager, or co-workers.”

He also said that some of the things that help make a resignation letter effective is keeping it positive, presenting it personally and keeping it brief.

“Ye Ha”

Marilyn signed her name before concluding the note with “Yi Ha”.

Reddit users appreciated the resignation letter in the comments section.

“‘yee ha’ is what it really does to me,” one Redditor wrote. “Season!!”

One Reddit user wrote: “This is actually a typical polite letter of a formal resignation in Scotland.”

Another wrote, “Now that’s straight talk.”
