Boss quits, fires entire staff in epic ‘f–k it’ email

Recommended Posts

A bus company boss sacked all his staff with a farewell note telling them: “F – – k it. I’ve had enough and realized I cannot work with you a moment longer.”

Frustrated Sydney Hardy, 57, announced his own departure on Sunday telling his 27 full and part-time drivers they could “consider themselves dismissed /redundant.”

His surprise move announced in an internal memo affected around 300 children the following morning as their school bus service was suddenly canceled with no notice.

Local schools and colleges were left trying to find replacement operators at the last minute to get the pupils to and from lessons.

Hardy announced he was finally “getting off” after thirteen years as managing director of his Nippy Bus company in a frank four-letter internal memo.

It said: “There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have enough.”

“I have had enough and realize I cannot work with you, the people I employ, a moment longer. There comes a time in any relationship when you just have to say ‘F*** it’, say goodbye and move on. This is my time!”

“I am quitting to pursue my dream of not having to work here.”

His parting note added: “the gates are now closed and will not open so you [staff] can stay in your scratchers Monday and have a lie in.”

A brief note on the company’s website dated on Sunday October 29th said it had ceased operating with immediate effect.

It added: “The company has appointed agents who will now work to release the company’s assets and discharge its liabilities.”

Driver Steve Atkins, 61, from Martock, Somerset, said staff were “in total shock.”

“Nobody expected it,” he said.

“It was a shock to see an email saying you ain’t got a job tomorrow.”

Clearly he had reached the "up yours, and while you're at it kiss mine" point.

Good for him.  Go pursue your dreams man.  My grandfather drove a school bus.  My mother did as well.  No way was I going to.  The kids these days have changed.  No respect. No common sense.  Worse part is you can't do anything about it without fear of losing your job or getting sued by some helicopter parent.
