How to give your two weeks notice

My roommate thinks that because I am on the verge of being a 3L which means I am on the verge of being a law school graduate, I can handle his official correspondence. Accordingly, he has asked me to write his letter of resignation from his current job.

This is what 2 years of legal writing, a year of clerking, and common sense taught me about two weeks notice:


Roommate's Boss

Surburbian Hellhole, IL, 60124

Dear Mr. Roommate's Boss,

Fuck you. I quit.


Roommate, CPA

p.s. May I contact the VP of HR for a letter of reference in the near future? Thanks.
