Jackson Racicot, 17, appeared about before flashing a subtle grin to the camera.
It’d be his last day working at Walmart in Grande Prairie in Alberta, Canada.
From the video that is formulaic, he’s seen hitting a code to boot up the store’s intercom system.
Racicot was about to announce his resignation at a way many disgruntled employees could only dream about.
“Attention all shoppers, management and associates, I would like to say, to all of you today, that nobody should work here ever.”
The video, which was posted last Thursday, had over 1,500 shares and 1,200 enjoys on Facebook at Wednesday afternoon.
It was posted with the caption, “How I quit my job today. Like, must watch.”

“I’ve been a loyal employee here for over a year and a half, and I am sick of all the bulls–, bogus write-ups, and my job,” he said.

The Edmonton Journal reported that Racicot had secured a new job before quitting and knew that was how he wanted to head out.
Walmart didn’t respond to a request for comment from The Washington Post on Wednesday morning.
In a statement obtained by the Edmonton Journal, the business said it was looking into the incident and would tackle it .
“We are aware of the video broadcasting online and so are disappointed by this incident. Respect for all individuals including our associates and clients is a core worth at Walmart,” the announcement read. “We are looking to this matter and will address it as
In a Facebook article Wednesday, Racicot said he had been seeking other Walmart employees who believed they had been mistreated by the business.
“I’ve got a plan but I want your help to go thru with it,” he wrote.
It wasn’t immediately clear exactly what the strategy involved.
Workers are ghosting their companies like bad dates.
