Guy quits his hotel job with a band on hand playing loudly

(CBS) - While it's almost always a good idea when you quit a job to leave on good terms so you can have your employer as a reference in the future, if you absolutely don't care one bit about the employer or the job, quitting with a band on hand is a pretty slick way to do it. Check it out in the above video. The actual quitting happens at about 1:52 into the clip.

Wow! I have a feeling that particular boss is probably not going to be someone to put down for a recommendation anymore...

The wild video was posted by YouTube user DowntownBoysMusic, who writes about how this all came about with the following:

I want to give a little context for the many of you who don't know me: I worked in this hotel for 3.5 years. I worked while going to school full time to pay my tuition and living expenses. This was not a job I had for two weeks before quitting in a hissy-fit. The working conditions in the hotel are horrendous. In the kitchen, workers are regularly forced to work 10, 11, 14, 16 hour shifts that begin at 5:30AM and last well into the night. Housekeepers are reprimanded if they fail to clean 16 rooms or more in a 9 hour shift. Anyone who speaks up--especially anyone who is openly pro-union--is disciplined or fired. Managers, like Jared, scream down employees daily. I worked extremely hard to change the conditions in the hotel. My co-workers and I regularly organized ourselves to push back against management and demand respect. I was also one of many workers who led the fight to organize a formal union at the hotel. The hotel has yet to recognize our union, and they continue a vicious union-busting campaign. They punish and fire pro-union workers, spread lies in captive-audience meetings, and generally attempt to scare the workers out of joining the union. Still, through just being organized and threatening to form a union, we've won countless victories, including raises, new uniforms, lower housekeeper room quotas, etc. This video is a hilarious byproduct of a long and ongoing struggle in the Renaissance Providence and hotels throughout the country.
