Charlo Greene, a TV reporter in Alaska, provided a case study for how not to leave a job. Greene told viewers that she was connected to a story about a cannabis club. Then she said that she’d be leaving her position to advocate for marijuana legalization in the state. The problem is her choice of words for her sign off: “F# it, I quit.” The station apologized and said Greene had been terminated. Whatever Greene does in the future, the odds are that she won’t work in TV again. She could have said that she is resigning to be a full time advocate for marijuana legalization. Instead, a moment of emotion burns a professional bridge. Think before you quit. Be professional.
