Worker resigns with GIF in workgroup chat

There is no “right” way to quit a job. While it’s common practice to give your employer two weeks’ notice, recent problems with this practice have prompted many to try new and innovative ways of telling their job that they will no longer be working there.

Several users have gone viral after voicing their grievances before quitting over their stores’ intercoms. One user literally “quietly quit” on her first day by whispering to a receptionist that she quit while handing in her parking pass.

Now another user sparked a discussion after sharing an additional way to quit: via GIF.

In a since-removed video that garnered over 14,000 views, TikTok user Cece (@pink_diamondsss1) showed a company’s group chat. Her colleague, she said, quit by simply sending a GIF of a man disappearing and removing himself from the chat.

“She made that meme and left the friggin’ group!” Cece laughed. “Like what?”

The meme in question is Nileseyy Niles Disappears, which features comedian Nileseyy Niles giving a peace sign before disappearing.

In the comments, users supported this method of termination.

“Love this for her,” wrote one user. “A queen.”

“Girls this is the best way to go out!!!!!!” added another. “I am weak.”


A user offered to stop by his own iconic story.

“My colleague resigned on Friday by sharing her screen and playing Sade while typing her resignation on the screen for all to see,” recalled one commenter.

The so-called “Great Resignation” is still ongoing.

“During 2021, more than 47 million people quit their jobs, or 23% of the total US workforce, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). And in 2022, around 38 million more will quit,” reported Lucas Mearian for ComputerWorld.

Additionally, a recent survey by LinkedIn found that 61% of people are considering quitting their jobs this year. For Gen Z, that number was over 70%.

The Daily Dot contacted Cece via TikTok comment.
