Memo to All Staff, recently published an article carrying the eye-catching headline “Boss sacks all staff to pursue his dream of not having to work with them”. It turns out that employees at Nippy Bus, which operated services across South Somerset in the UK, were informed by owner Sydney Hardy, that he was shutting the whole place down because he could not bear to put up with them “a moment longer”.

How disillusioned must he have been, to issue the following in a letter to all staff?

“There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have had enough."

“I have had enough and realise I cannot work with you, the people I employ, a moment longer.”

“There comes a time in any relationship when you just have to say ‘****  **’, say goodbye and move on. This is my time! I am quitting to pursue my dream of not having to work here.”

“All staff should now consider themselves dismissed/redundant.”

"The gates are now closed and will not open, so you can stay in your scratchers and have a lie in.”

A brief note on the company’s website said it had ceased operating with immediate effect and that it had appointed agents to release assets and discharge liabilities.
