#HowIQuit: Jimmy Fallon reads stories about people quitting their jobs
MANILA, Philippines – Sometimes, you've just had enough at work – and for these social media users featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, when it's time to go, it's time to go.
In a recent segment on the Fallon show called Hashtags, where the show collects anecdotes based on the evening's theme, people shared their funniest stories about leaving the job.
And while in most cases, quitting entails at least two weeks' notice, an exit interview, and plenty of conversations with your bosses and colleagues, the people featured in these stories just don't hold back. (READ: 4 undeniable signs that it's time to quit your job)
