An airport worker has announced his resignation – via the medium of cake.
Chris Holmes presented his bosses at Stansted Airport with the iced sponge, explaining he was quitting to enjoy fatherhood and expand his baking business.
The full text reads:
To the Management Border Force, Stansted
Today is my 31st birthday, and having recently become a father I now realise how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me, and other people happy.
For that reason I hereby give notice of my resignation, in order that I may devote my time and energy to my family and to my cake business which has grown steadily over the past few years.
I wish the organisation and my colleagues the best for the future and I remind you that, if you enjoy this cake, you can order more at www.mrcake.co.uk
Chris Holmes (Mr Cake)
Holmes posted the image on his Facebook page, and it was quickly scooped up by Reddit after which it went viral. One Twitter user described it as "Jerry Maguire meets Masterchef."
It’s not the first time an employee has said it with cake.
In 2009 Neil Berrett announced his intentions to leave San Francisco’s Hunters Point Naval Shipyard via the same medium.
Berrett’s message, which explained he was leaving to spend more time with his family and to address health issues, was posted on Flickr.
Steven is getting a divorce -- for anyone that was wondering.
What is going on here?
When in doubt, black and white match with everything.
This is what a giant PlayStation handheld console looks like, and apparently it speaks for itself.
Perhaps someone, somewhere will go go go, work work work and produce produce produce after seeing this billboard.
Even Jesus is on Facebook. Like.
We've just passed the two-year anniversary Judgment Day, but this billboard still freaks us out.
You're trying too hard, technology.
Just A Home Birth, NBD
P.S. Please don't freak out.
Presumably German Neighbors
This writer has no idea if his neighbors are German, but the flag seems to point in the affirmative.
A second letter?! Nooooo!!!
A Detailed Account
Those little hallway run-ins are about to get a lot more awkward.
Ecstasy or.... MURDER!
Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference on sound alone.
"Have A Nice Day"
The smiley face at the end just makes it more aggressive.
"You'll See What Is Coming To You"
This note will one day be called "Exhibit A."
Passive Aggressive Note, Songified
Carly Rae Jepsen would be proud.
Something tells us there's going to be a fight in 301 later.
Just Telling It Like It Is
To be fair, maybe he should invest in some headphones.
Hell hath no fury like a rightful toilet paper owner scorned.
You only get to write, "Now who's the terrorist?" on so many notes in your life.
One Angry Elementary Student
Based on "Dear neibors," we really want this girl to be able to get to school well-rested.
That Escalated Quickly
This writer is clearly hanging on by a string.
'Maybe I am An Ass...'
We're guessing this guy doesn't get a lot of party invites.
So Bubbly It Hurts
The little hearts just add insult to injury.
Best Use Of The Word "Whom"
They should officially change the word "pound" to "kitty jail."
Just Get To The Point Already!
It's not their fault that all the best TV and radio shows start at 5:30 a.m.
No Good Deed
We really don't understand the scenario that would lead to this note.
People just throw around the L word now, amirite?
Stop Stealing Other People's Newspapers
Oh burn on that Post joke.
What would be left of a scooter (or two, fine) that had $1000 worth of parts stripped of it? Also, why didn't this guy just take the whole scooters?
The stationary makes this note really pleasant.

Throw away your trash, guys, your neighbor is hilarious.

Is this the start of a wonderful love story?
Note On The Door
The bottom of a door on a post-it is clearly the best place to be aggressive.
This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Terri is going to park where she wants to park, thank you very much!
