When most people quit a job they send a round-robin email saying farewell to their colleagues.
But that wasn’t the case for one fuming kitchen designer, who emailed a scathing resignation note to her firm’s 4,500 staff in which she slammed her bosses’ behaviour.
Catherine Stewart, 25, quit her job after a Wren manager criticised her sales figures.
Catherine Stewart sent a round-robin email to 4,500 staff criticising her bosses at Wren claiming that morale at her branch of the kitchen design store was poor. She claimed her bosses spent too much time ‘chatting up the pretty girls’ than doing their job

The round-robin email – thought to be sent deliberately – described bosses as ‘ungrateful, narcissistic men that don’t know how to run a bath never mind a region or a store’.
She said of one: ‘If you weren’t so busy chatting up the pretty girls while visiting, or commenting on our appearances you would maybe have a better understanding of what was going on’.
The explosive email was sent after a boss had contacted Miss Stewart to inform her that her ‘underperformance’ had been flagged in a meeting, The Sun reported.
The boss allegedly criticised her for having made only eight sales so far this year and asked: ‘What will you do to fix this going forward?’
Miss Stewart was also told: ‘This is not good enough and needs your attention to improve immediately’.
In response Miss Stewart, who worked at a northern branch, said: ‘Thanks for your concern regarding my performance. However I do believe you have bigger things to worry about like people not getting paid or even thanked properly for the work they put in.’
She signed the email as from ‘The designer with the best ass in the showroom but the body of a child
She added: ‘Since returning from the Christmas holidays I have been extremely unhappy with the morale of the showroom. I am definitely not the only one.’ Referring to one boss in particular, Miss Stewart said: ‘You can’t put flowers in an a**hole and call it a vase’.
Although heavily critical of bosses, Miss Stewart did however praise Wren founder Malcolm Healey for making the firm ‘a good place to work’ and added ‘it is just a shame not everyone in the company shares this with him’.
