SINGAPORE- A spicy resignation letter peppered with some classic Singlish has made its rounds on social media, garnering quite a bit of attention and applause.
The individual didn’t just drop the bomb on their employer; they also highlighted how kiam siap (stingy) the company was.
The viral photo shows the resignation letter reveals that it was submitted on Friday (15th).
The employee, with no holds barred, wrote: “Every day wake up at 5 am, for what? Come to your company but my pay never increase. Worse still, no bonus. So ‘niao’ (stingy), how you expect me to continue serving your company with passion?”
While the authenticity of the letter remains questionable, it sure struck a chord with many, especially with its humorous use of Singlish.
The word ‘niao’ itself became a hot topic of discussion, with some asking its meaning. A few were quick to correct that it’s indeed ‘niao’, which in local lingo means ‘stingy’.
Many netizens have commented on how they are impressed by the resignee’s straightforward and direct approach.
Addressing the grievances aired in the letter, a netizen added, “Bosses can’t treat millennials the way they treated those born in the ’70s and ’80s. Why? ‘Cause we’ll send you packing (chao sotong style)!”
“Kiamsiap has the same meaning too.”
If you were the boss, could you accept it?
