Handing in your notice can be a nerve-wracking moment.

Unless you despised your position with every fibre of your being, most of us want to leave our job on a high note, and ensure we don't burn any bridges in the process.

And while some of us are incredibly pragmatic when it comes to the whole procedure, others tend to get a little more creative when saying goodbye to their current position.

Take this Reddit user, for example.

Upon deciding to quit his job, he came to the conclusion that his employer's loss was bigger than his own, and chose to illustrate as much by opting for a sympathy card.

Containing the words 'Even though you knew this time would come, there's no way to prepare your heart for such a loss," Alex signed off the card with the day's date and a brief '2-week's notice' finisher.

I just quit my job the best way I know how.

And the internet is absolutely loving it.

"I like the cut of your jib" wrote one Reddit user while another revealed: "I'm planning on putting in my notice on Friday. I've been trying to figure out what to say. This is great inspiration!"

Hmmm, we don't know about that one…
