So, It Turns Out That ‘Quitting Via White Board’ Girl Is A Hoax

Yesterday, it seemed like the entire internet had unified around the story of “Jenny,” an assistant who decided to quit her job by writing a series of messages on a white board and then sending the photo essay to all the employees at her company. While many people loved the story of Jenny telling her boss to take his job and shove it or were inspired to find other dramatic ways to quit, Lemondrop’s Erin Scottberg wasn’t so sure. She did a little digging and turned up a casting agency ad for a model to appear in a shoot that sounds almost identical to the one “leaked” by The Chive.

Update: After Lemondrop and other sites posted the results of their reporting, “Jenny” showed up on The Chive to admit the whole thing was a prank.

    Funny that this prank comes along with the flight attendant who also said “Take this job and shove it” along with some beer ! 8>)
