Times are tough and if you have a decent job, you should consider yourself lucky. But that doesn't mean shit when your boss is a dumbass, you work too many hours for too little money, and your job has little to no meaning. Face it: Companies abuse their workers mostly becuase they can.
Don't let the above GIF from Half Baked where your man Scarface (played by Guillermo Díaz) quits his terrible fast food job fool you either. Even if you don't work a dead end job you might still wish you were dead. Much like Tuco in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, we often find oursleves wondering, "If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working?"
That's why so many of us dream of the day we can quit our jobs and throw up two middle fingers and let them linger as we tell everyone in the office what we really think about them (which is mostly that they're fucking stupid). Most of the times we don't because hey, we really need a job and life ain't cheap. But when enough is enough, and you're ready to quit, you might as well make a dramatic exit. Here's a soundtrack to telling your boss to fuck off: 31 Songs To Quit Your Job To.
