 Apr 17 - Man Brilliantly Quits His Job to Pursue Dream Job With Resignation Letter Written on a Cake

If you're going to quit your job to pursue your dream job of making cakes for a living, then writing your resignation letter on a cake is definitely the right move.

On his 31st birthday, Chris Holmes — now known to the public as "Mr. Cake" — decided it was time to quit his job as a Border Agency official at London's Stansted Airport to do something he's passionate about and would allow him to spend more time with this family. For Holmes, this meant pursuing a cake business called Mr. Cake and notifying his employers with actual icing on a cake.

Holmes' sweet resignation letter quickly went viral when his brother-in-law tweeted a picture of it to the world. Note the bottom of the cake has a nice plug for his business, so this is great marketing as well:

In an interview with Elodie Harper at Sawston's local news station ITV news, Holmes said that his deision "seemed like the obvious choice."

"... Having set up a cake company, I thought I would leave them with a memento that would be a nice way of remembering me. I had the idea six months ago so I've kept it to myself since then."

"I think [my boss] was pleasantly surprised, of all the resignations businesses get, I think that's probably a nice way for an employee to leave and I hope they enjoyed the cake as well as the resignation."

Holmes' employers told Harper that they wished him "all the best" in his new business venture.

I think he was saying that sarcastically, to make fun of the people who don't know how the date is formatted in the UK. That's why he put it in quotation marks.

Why because he used his talents to pursue a career he genuinely wants while also getting the opportunity to spend more time at home with his family?

Everything this man did was a huge WIN. So I really don't understand your post.
