I would give this woman a job in a heartbeat. Half a heartbeat.

Marina Shifrin. Writer. Comedian. Waitress. Love it.

So you love your company, but your boss just doesn’t get it.

You make videos, and you long to make the content so compelling that people will watch in their millions.

But your boss just busts your ass to produce more and more product.

So after two years, you make your own video, resigning. To prove a point. That great content MATTERS. That it gets hits.

So then you post the video on YouTube, and you say this:

“I have put my entire life into this job, but my boss only cares about quantity, how fast we write and how many views each video gets.

I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings.

Wanna deal with me? Hit me up.”

So you post an interpretive dance video. Why, of course! Why didn’t we think of that?

Funny. Clever. Original. Witty. Appropriate.

Her [insert abusive expletive] of a boss should have listened to her. The video is currently pushing three million hits on YouTube, and has been featured on leading websites and in newspapers everywhere. Dur.

And we suspect Ms Shifrin will be in work again very soon, if she isn’t already.

Oh, and she can bust a move, too. You go, grrrl.

  1. What an unforgettable exit, and what a wonderful advert for what she can produce. The next company that hires her as an employee or hires the company she founds, will have a gem to work with. Thanks for this, Mr. Yolland, it absolutely made my afternoon!

  2. Haven’t we all had jobs where we dreamed of leaving in some grand way? Kudos to her courage (and her youth).
