Beyoncé Said To Quit Your Job. These People Actually Did.

Beyoncé Said To Quit Your Job. These People Actually Did.

Beyoncé and New Orleans bounce singer Big Freedia sing about the liberation that comes from deciding to no longer be dragged down by a job you don't care about in the dance anthem "Break My Soul," which is already a strong candidate for song of the summer.

Beyoncé delivers the opening stanza, "Now, I just fell in love / And I just resigned my job." I'm going to get a new drive. "Damn, they work me so damn hard. Work by 9 / Then off past 5. And they work my nerves.

Galindo took the risk on Monday morning. She sent her boss a text message letting him know she would be departing and giving two weeks' notice.

She wasn't happy, though, as she watched TV that night in bed with her partner. It was mentally exhausting for her to know she would still have to report in the next day. But before she went online and listened to the newest Beyoncé song, she felt obligated to turn up.

Galindo acknowledges that she suffers from a severe case of main character syndrome. She compares her life to a movie and searches for hints in the cosmos. Here came her idol, another Texan whose middle name is Galindo's first name, Beyoncé, who appeared to be conveying a message.

The moment Galindo heard Beyoncé say, "I just quit my work," he says, "we started listening and I kid you not, I knew I wasn't going back to my job tomorrow morning."

Galindo and Liang didn't quit their professions because of the song, but it did serve another crucial function: It helped them feel less alone.

Liang found it to be almost comforting to hear Beyoncé sing about escaping the daily grind and recovering a new foundation for herself. Letting leaves a solid job to pursue a passion might be intimidating as you travel into the unknown.
