A job for many workers is just a paycheck -- an often dreary way to pay the bills. That may be why so many Americans are keen on (or at least dream of) quitting their jobs in an over-the-top fashion.
There are a number of recent examples of "extreme quitting," including one by Joey DeFrancesco, who video recorded his departure from his hotel job, which included the accompaniment of members of the What Cheer? Brigade brass band. The YouTube video shows DeFrancesco presenting his boss, "Jared," with his resignation letter. The manager responds by ordering the group out of the hotel, before they march off to rousing music.
