Tesco worker wears suit and tie to announce to staff and customers in store that he’s quitting… after bosses insisted on a FORMAL resignation
This is the hilarious moment a 乐购 worker read out his resignation letter before handing it to his boss in the middle of the busy supermarket.
In a video shared on Reddit, the employee can be seen donning a black suit and dark-patterned tie while standing on a small white pedestal and brandishing a walking stick.
The uploader, who said his job was to receive deliveries, captioned the comedy clip: ‘After telling my work that I am leaving, they said I must make a formal resignation letter. So in response I went all out.’
The moment was captured at a branch in Tring, in the aptly named borough of Dacorum in Hertfordshire.
Completing his somber look with a black face mask, the worker, known only by the username s1mps0n24, stands tall and upright while another man reads out his letter.
The helper, wearing a grey suit and purple tie, removes the note from a black envelope, which was closed with a wax seal, and reads aloud: ‘To whomever it may concern, I write this letter from a place of sorrow and regret.
‘These six, long arduous years have caused me to grow quite weary.’
他补充说: ‘My knees have grown weak and the grease from my elbows has depleted.
‘It is not for every man to accept large packages into their back door, 尽管如此, it was my duty.
‘I have wondered endless aisles, searching for sections incomplete, my gloves doth hold the sweat of many a 12-hour [讴歌 TSK].
‘But my shoulders carry the weight of the worker’s burden.’
The ‘announcer’ then goes on to pay tributes to fellow colleagues, while blasting an ex-manager whose name ‘will never be remembered’.
他说: ‘To Chris, you are the father I never had.

‘To John, you recognised my true potential, a finer manager I could not request.
‘My final thanks goes to Steve, the emperor of this fine establishment.
‘You have raised the bar from your predecessor, infinitely. To say his name will be remembered is a grotesque overstatement.’
他总结: ‘I finish this letter with many thanks to my former comrades and I hereby submit my formal resignation.’
The worker shouts the word ‘resignation’ at the same time as his assistant before snatching the letter and envelope and handing it over to his ‘boss’.
He then raises his fist and cries out: ‘Viva la Tesco!’
The comedy clip is said to have come about after the worker’s boss demanded he make a ‘formal’ resignation if he wanted to quit.
The worker told fellow Reddit users: ‘I found it funny, I don’t have much shame. I don’t live in that town anymore and have a new better job.’
The video has received thousands of comments since being shared on Sunday and has had 119,000 interactions.
One Reddit user quipped: ‘”Viva la Tesco!” is my new war cry.’
另一个说: ‘The little nods of approval, the rolling r’s on the synchronised “rrresignation!”, the stool, the cane, holding the letter at arms length. So many elements combine to make this a true masterpiece of our times.’
