cake resignation-messageIn what might be the sweetest resignation story ever told, Chris Holmes, 31, quit his secure airport job in England by handing in a cake printed with a message saying, he was quitting.

“Today is my 31st birthday," he printed neatly with icing. "Having recently become a father I now realise how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me, and other people, happy."

His website "Mr. Cake" received so much publicity that his success is likely assured.

Every day I get to work in the morning, get my coffee, jump online and read the news. Every day I go home sad and depressed... Then I found your site and after reading the first story I immediately felt my spirits lift and I never went home sad again. Reading ordinary news we get a sense that that's all there is, but your site reminds us the world is not as bad as the news would lead us to believe. Thank you for everything.
