For anyone who has ever fantasized about quitting a hated job with an obscenity-filled rant, ripping management a new one, and burning any remaining bridge with all the subtlety of Negasonic Teenage Warhead, we present to you Jackson Racicot, 17, of Alberta, Canada. As the Edmonton Journal reports, Jackson had worked at his local Walmart for about a year and a half—until last Thursday, when he shot cell phone video of himself turning on the store's intercom system and firmly telling his bosses to take this job and shove it. "Attention all shoppers, associates, and management, I would like to say, to all of you today, that nobody should work here—ever," he said in a one-minute rant that he posted to his Facebook page. He ends the tirade by dropping F-bombs directed at management, his job, and Walmart.

Apparently the message resonated, because cheers greeted the end of his in-store address and the post has more than half a million views as of this writing. Says Walmart, via a statement: "We are aware of the video circulating online and are disappointed by this incident. Respect for all individuals including our associates and customers is a core value at Walmart. We are looking into this matter and will address it internally as required."
