你寫過辭職信嗎？怎麼樣的辭職信會讓老闆又驚又喜？有一封離職信在網路上火紅，號稱全世界最甜美的辭職信，寫在蛋糕上的辭職信，英國的Daily Mail網站上的標題是：Saying goodbye is such sweet sorrow。 原來服務於英國機場的移民官Chris Holmes，太太剛生了小孩，他想開家蛋糕店，可以更有彈性陪伴家人，於是他別出心裁把離職信「寫」在蛋糕上，離職前也趁機為自己的新事業打廣告。 當他親自把蛋糕端給上司，主管又驚又喜。Chris說：「我的離職屬於好聚好散型，希望讓大家嚐到好滋味。」(‘I thought it was a good natured resignation and hopefully left a nice taste in their mouths.)
