ON THE LIGHTER SIDE: As professional recruiters we often offer advice to people who are going to be participating in job interviews. In the interest of balance, we thought it might also be a good idea to give people an idea of what NOT to say when LEAVING a job. Here are some of our favorites.

1. Oh, so now you’re willing to give me a raise. Well you know what you can do with that don’t ya?………..Just how much of a raise were you thinking?
2. Com on now let’s be serious. You were going to fire me anyway as soon as you saw my expense reports…..What do you mean that “up till now” you never bothered to read them?
3. Listen if the police call about a bunch of parking tickets for my company car, it’s probably just some kind of administrative error.
4. Is it okay if I keep all of those company pens I have in my sock drawer?
5. And about the Christmas party. Tell that wife of yours that I never would have hit on somebody as ugly as her if I hadn’t been really, really drunk.
6. Is it okay if I leave my golf clubs and hunting and fishing stuff here for a while? I mean, I don’t want them to get the wrong idea at my new job.
7. Yea, well if you weren’t such a ridiculous jerk, maybe I’d still work here. What’s that? You still haven’t mailed my last paycheck. Gee sir, please let me rephrase that.
