Pentium 130 Too Slow for Admin from Oakland CA
Why did you resign?
Can't get a new computer in my office, and I'm running a damn Pentium 130 MHz.
What are you going to do next?

Per our employee handbook, I am giving two weeks notice of my resignation. You will probably notice that I am not the first person to jump off this ship before it sinks. Perhaps my leaving will save the company enough money to purchase new mixers and replace the ones which were purchased when the company was started in the late 40s.
But, I know that you won't approve of that sort of expenditure, not with your overarching effort to reduce costs. Miraculously, you haven't had any layoffs in a couple of years, but that is probably because you are running on the bare minimum of staff anyway, and have made such haphazard attempts at upgrading computer and manufacturing equipment that no one in the office has the same version of MS Word and the mixers are probably held together with duct tape and spit wads, which I'm sure would interest the FDA. As would the mould growing on the ceiling above the tea kettle, but I'm sure you'll manage to strip clean that before their next visit anyway.
In any case, I wanted you to know that I'm not leaving because of the mistake on my holiday bonus last year, or the fact that I can't read half the document attachments that come in my email because I'm still on Word 95. No, I am leaving because you clearly do not believe that this company is worth the investment of good, well-running equipment for either your office or manufacturing staff. And if its not worth your investment, sir, it is not worth my investment, either, and I am certainly not going to waste 40 of the best hours of my week on a bad investment. Good day.
Sorry Editor's Assistant from London Resigns. Sorry.
