FYI, it started its life in my comments section, and now is making the rounds on the email circuit. I have no idea if it’s from a real William Morris employee.

Well, if it’s real employee who quit, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out who it is. It’s the guy/gal who just quit!
But if no one has actually quit recently, then it’s not legit. Or written by a guy who decided not to brave the unemployment line after all. Simple as that…
Wow Eric, you’re a rocket scientist…
Wow Einstein, you’re all about original thoughts.
Eric, the writer said that he (or maybe she?) will be quitting soon, now immediately.
I’ve never met an agent who could punctuate an entire letter, let alone write that well. Still, real or not, it says it all.
has anyone pieced together that it’s a take on the AIG “I Quit” email or do people actually think it’s a 100% original work? he even gave credit to the original author. i would be surprised if it’s actually a WMA employee who quit… more likely than not it’s just someone who is in tune with what’s going on in the “real world” and saw some amusing parallels.
Regardless of whether the “I quit” email results in an actual quitting, it’s still a good piece of satire with which ANYBODY who’s worked in the mailroom and on a desk can sympathize. And, yes, some of us did quit this godforsaken agenting business for the precise reasons stated.
I applaud this piece, regardless of whether the author ever quits or not. I knew pretty quickly I wasn’t cut out to be an agent — and, believe me, that’s a good thing!
The Tommy the clown reference shows that it is definetely internal. When they signed ‘that clown’, they were actually upset that Variety wrote ‘WMA signs clown’… that can apply to so many
Ari is just looking through William Morris”s business to figure out what he can steal> that cant happen. Willima Morris is pretty smart. He did the same last time. I know I helped him
Jim. You are such a coward. And stupid.
