My mom retired similarly. No one but HR knew she was going to retire that year, then she emailed "Cake in the breakroom" to her whole office.— Boogie Babies Are Still In Cages (@LikeAFineWino) June 27, 2019
(Cake reads "Happy Retirement To Me") and she left for good 30 minutes later, full pension and all. Lol pic.twitter.com/WYHM222tTL

“We are a really close team and have a fantastic manager so we’re always joking around and having fun,” Baines said to the Metro. “I knew I had to do something a little more creative when giving my notice to try and get one more joke in before I left! I knew my boss would find it funny so I wasn’t worried about how they’d take it,” he added.
“I came up with the idea because I was always joking about how much they’d miss me when I was gone, then thought a condolences card would be the perfect way to finish it off,” Baines further told to the Metro.
