Anesti Danelis, a Toronto-based musical and sketch comedian worked at a Starbucks for years before recently deciding that he had enough as a barista. So, he penned an original — and hilarious — song that he performed for his boss inside the coffee shop.
The tune, with the NSFW title of “F— This, I Quit”, discusses Danelis’ time working at the coffee chain and his reasons for making the departure. The former barista even brought some friends to record the performance, which was posted on YouTube.
He sings, “Dear manager, I’ve been working here for so long. I’ve got something that I want to tell you, so I thought I would say it in a song. F— this, I quit! F— this place, I quit. I don’t want to work for someone who treats their employees like s—!”
“I found a way better job, today was my last day. I know I’ve got like ten more shifts to work, but f— it, I’m not gonna show up to them anyways. And it feels so good to say, f— this, I quit.”
The former barista continues his song by explaining why he was quitting — noting a time that his boss allegedly laughed in his face after Danelis asked for a promotion — but tells his manager to shove those reasons up his “venti bumhole.”
Despite the controversial lyrics, Danelis said his intention was not meant to be overly negative to his manager.
He explained, “The song was a little worse but I was like, ‘I can’t be mean, I can’t be negative, let’s just be an adult about it. It’s meant to be, ‘I’ve had enough working here, I’m gonna remove myself from a negative situation and move on.’ It’s about moving on and being happy, cause I don’t want to live in the negatives anymore and I think that’s what people related to.”
