A Capitol Hill staffer recently quit their grueling job after more than 20 years. To say that they went out with a bang would be an understatement.
In an epic email detailing the many reasons for their resignation, they ranted:
“After nearly two decades of unpaid and underpaid work, student loans for two degrees, late nights, playing therapist/nanny, dealing with angry phone calls, and always being on call like a sleep-deprived Florence fucking Nightengale, I got tired of hearing ‘You’re not dedicated enough’ one last fucking time.”
The angry staffer continued:
“A few years ago, the entire country was on the brink of a recession and financial meltdown. Congress was about to vote on TARP, but what was the pressing issue in my office? What did we have to have a staff meeting about ASAfuckingP? Appropriate shoe attire. An individual who was about to vote on one of the most historic pieces of legislation didn’t have the courage to face his own staff to discuss his discomfort of heel height.”
They concluded with a simple, “Fuck you people.”
