Dear Ms. Houser,

It is with great gladness that I am finally announcing my resignation from ABC Company. Since I have finally gotten an opportunity to accept another job that will get me out of ABC Company, my resignation will be in immediate effect. Thankfully, I will not be coming back into work at all, but will fax over all necessary paperwork. I wish I could say I was sorry for leaving.

It probably does not come as a surprise that I am dissatisfied with my experience working for ABC Company, but I still plan to go through the necessary processes of resignation in order to minimize inconvenience for all parties. If you need to discuss this with me, feel free to leave me a message at (555)555-5555 or [email] and I will try to get back with you.

Working at ABC Company has been an unfortunate waste of my time and I have never been happier to leave something behind. I just hope that my next job turns out a little better and is more likely to facilitate my reaching a few long-held career goals. Thanks for all of your lack of care and understanding over the years.
