I have just seen this article on the Guardian website about a man called Chris Holmes, an immigration officer for Border Force at Stansted Airport, who handed in his resignation yesterday on a cake. 

As you can see, he writes: “Having recently become a father I now realise how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me, and other people, happy. For that reason, I hereby give notice of my resignation, in order that I may devote my time and energy to my family, and my cake business.”

I love this! What a wonderful way to resign!
