A FED-UP worker looks to have quit a job by daub­ing an­gry mes­sages on the boss’s car.

The un­named em­ployee wrote “worse boss ever”, “up yours I quit” and “stick your job up your a ** e” over the Mercedes E Class.

Pic­tures of the ve­hi­cle, parked in Leeds, sparked a Twit­ter storm af­ter they emerged yes­ter­day. Michelle B tweeted: “Head­ing to work and this is out­side the #queen­shotel in #leeds that’s one way of hand­ing in your #Res­ig­na­tion.”

Michelle Bun­yan, who walked past the car on her way to work, said: “I think that’s ei­ther one sour em­ployee and will look good on their CV and a smart move to­wards un­em­ploy­ment for life or a good ad­vert sim­i­lar to what Range Rover did a few months back.

“It gave me and my col­leagues a good gig­gle.”

An­other per­son wrote: “Out­side #Leeds train sta­tion this morn­ing. That’s cer­tainly one way to quit ® your job.” An­other com­muter, who asked not to be named, said: “I think this is a stunt as my friend also saw this car in Al­bion Street this morn­ing.”

The car was parked near Leeds rail­way sta­tion out­side the nearby Queens Ho­tel.

It was also spot­ted ear­lier on other streets in the city.

The owner of the ve­hi­cle has not been iden­ti­fied.

Last night it was still not clear whether the van­dalised mo­tor was part of an ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign.
