If you’re tired of all the bullshit at work and you’re ready to quit, comedian Chloé Hilliard can most definitely help you with that. Before she got into comedy, she worked as a journalist for over 10 years. “It was really hard for me to walk away from it,” she says of her dream profession. “But I got very clear signs that I needed to go.”
Whether you want to give your workplace the middle finger via a long term “fuck you” plan or use a simple mic-drop, her biggest tip is to not burn bridges (unless there’s a lawsuit involved). In the wise words of Hilliard, when the time comes, “If you can’t afford a lawyer on an hourly rate, keep it cute, put it on mute, get your shit, and get the fuck out.”
