Dear Mr. Executive Director of Administration Management Office,
I hereby resign as the Head of the Department of Contentment Development.
I arrived at this decision on a cold Saturday morning with great regret in my heart after several minutes of careful consideration.
There are many reasons (at least 5) for me to hand in my resignation, and even though this is not Christmas, I will present them to you.
I realize we both started our working relationship on a wrong foot and often took steps we later wished we had not taken.
We all know working in the private sector can be very demanding and exhausting and I certainly feel tired even know as I write this letter while lying on a sofa.
It is known we work in a vicious industry where people elbow each other to gain an advantage over someone else’s disadvantage.
I myself have a nose (some say a 'big' one, for the sake of adjectivization) for that kind of thing.
I have looked at it and seen it with my own eyes what it can do to people.
I went knees deep, even though they are very bad, into the relentless fight that was required to dominate the market.
Even then, I sometimes felt I was being held by the ankles by the Board of Directors which certainly hampered my efforts on many separate occasions.
I often begged them to throw me a bone and tell me what is it that they want of me in some particular situations and cases.
I dedicated myself to this Company as I stood shoulder to shoulder with fellow employees during difficult periods… of recession.
I helped this Company rise and flex its financial muscles that lifted us to the top.
I was armed with knowledge, expertise and experience as I ventured into countless wars and bled, figuratively speaking, for our Company's benefit.
I was the brains behind many of our strategic and successful operations and strategies.
I busted my lungs on more than one occasion especially as there was air of pessimism surrounding our Company in its darkest and chilliest days.
I hope everyone can attest I was always standing on my toes, every time displaying vigilance and alertness to everything that was going on everywhere.
I stuck my neck out many times to battle bad situations for the good of the Company.
But with my excellent qualifications I was sincerely disappointed with the amount of leg work I have been assigned that seemed to stretch into eternity.
Moreover, there were certain ongoing things going on behind the scenes that I did not like and when I approached you about them, you did not even lift a finger.
Of course I do not deny I have made mistakes; I admit that openly and I also beat my chest but not very vigorously as not to suggest I am into that kind of thing.
I unfortunately regret having to work with people who did not know how to keep their lips shut and ran to your office to place complaints about my methods.
Especially the memory of my altercation with Dick which ended in a dirty scrap is still something I remember.
I have also spent plenty of time pulling my hair out trying to figure out how our Company could have fallen so far away from its values and principles and steered into the deceptive territory of moral bankruptcy.
As a final straw, I have heard whispers being promoted among my employees about me being earmarked for demotion.
I am not one to name any names but it seems loyalty turned out to be my Achilles heel.
It did not sit well with me at all, so I decided to stand up for myself and not lie down before the inevitable, but at the same time I have enough decency to not resort to mouthing off.
I am no longer turning the other cheek to see how hard it’s going to be slapped; as I explicitly stated earlier I am not into that kind of thing.
I am finally done with putting my body on the line only to be persecuted by unjust judgement made by an inadequate jury.
Now the ball is firmly in your court and I expect you to return the courtesy of setting your personal opinions aside and accepting my resignation without hesitation.
My decision is final and there is no possibility of me ever coming back and I hope you understand that as soon as possible.
Do not mind me,
PS. Kiss my white ass, you asshole.
