Case Of The Mondays: Workplace Meltdowns Vol. 2
Article by Aaron Haughton
Whether you're working a job you despise or not, we all have those days where we'd rather throw in the towel than work another second. There are even those boiling point moments when we wanna scream at the top of our lungs, "I FUCKING QUIT!" Maybe poison the water cooler so all your co-workers drop dead, blood oozing out of their--
Oh, shit...too far?
Right right, too far. Anyways, here are some scenes of workplace meltdown to help get you through your week, so, you know, you don't have to lose your shit, or your shit job.
This meltdown takes place near the very end of the clip, but when greater opportunity knocks, you throw in the towel and say, "I retire." Even if that greater opportunity, as it turns out, ends up eventually being the death of you.
In the work environment, we shouldn't be afraid to give our co-workers feedback, especially when their work is total and complete shit -- I'm looking at you Rochelle! And, when we're fed up with our jobs, we'd all like to leave on a some sort of high note, maybe give some deep meaningful speech even. Well, we all know that in reality, it would come out all garbled and convoluted and rambling and only make us look more of the ass, so until we write it out on paper and practice it a few times in the mirror, I guess we'll just let JGL take this one for now.
Ahh, a good 'ole fashioned Malkovich freak out. Who doesn't love em? When work tries to snub you out and reduce you, cast you aside after you've kissed ALL the ass, a good 'ole fashioned Malkovich freak out is not only needed, it's fucking called for. Thanks, John.
Here's another case of seeing something better and going for it, and Jonah Hill delivers with the usual comedic bravado. Like Scarface, this scene from The Wolf of Wall Street goes to show you that when a higher calling comes a-knocking, you tell your employer, "I quit."
Okay, I've never seen this film (and I don't feel particularly inclined to), but this clip is pretty great. I can't say that if I decided to quit my job that I'd go streaking, stark-naked through the office, but I commend Rami Malek for his ingenuity, especially when he plants a big 'ole kiss on the hot office broad before telling everyone to "Have a nice day, you miserable bastards."
