One Microsoft Employee’s Musical Letter Of Resignation

Most artistic job resignation ever… In fact, it was so artistic that I’m a bit surprised that she wasn’t quitting Apple instead of Microsoft. The woman in the video is Karen Cheng and she has decided that, after three years of working on the Excel development team that it was time for her to move on to a start up company in San Francisco.

Most employees would just pen a polite letter of resignation, but not Karen. She took to Youtube with her guitar and sang it out to the tune of “American Pie”. Her title? “Bye, Bye Excel and I.”

Here are the lyrics to Karen’s letter of resignation:
Long, long lines of code
It can take a while for Excel code to compile
I am glad I’ve had the chance
To make the cells and numbers dance, and maybe make some customers smile
But the time has come to close this chapter, beer and chips and hallway laughter
Feelin’ a little blue, I will miss my feature crew
Sound of typing and mouse clicks, taco Fridays in 36
Now it’s time for me to go
Goodbye, product studio

So Bye, bye Excel and I
It’s been 3 good years, oh how time has flown by
With devs in the hall drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’ forever recalc or die, forever recalc or die

Together we made Excel 15,
And we bleed proud forever green, for the world’s calc machine
Gotta listen to my heart it knows
Time to shake up my status quo, I am hopping on a plane to San Francisco
The next time that I touch a spec will be at a startup called Exec
My PM days have expired, I’ve taken a job as a designer
My last day is the 24th, please see me for anything you need before
And after that don’t disappear, please do contact me here.

So Bye, bye Excel and I
It’s been 3 good years, oh how time has flown by
With devs in the hall drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin, Forever recalc or die.
