UPDATED: How to quit your job with style: Say it with pictures!

As a photographer, I cannot help but love how this young lady dropkicked her stinky boss with pictures!  This is the good old fashion American Spirit at its finest. The entertainment industry should snap her up pronto! 
The Chive: We received the following photos last night from a person who works with this girl. Her name is Jenny (not confirmed) - we're working our contact for Jenny's last name. Yesterday morning, Jenny quit her job with a (flash)bang by emailing these photos to the entire office, about 20 employees we're told. Awesome doesn't begin to describe this office heroine. Check back as we will be updating if we get more details.

UPDATE: WE have made contact with Jenny and will be posting a follow-up story tomorrow morning with more information.

UPDATE: Hoax :-(

It really pays to do your homework on the net.  It turns out old Jenny isn't real (boo hoo).
Left Coast Rebel:The story of 'Jenny the dry board job quitter' is certainly genius. Most importantly, is the story real? I hate to (potentially) burst your bubble:
(Media Memo) Today, our favorite job quitter is “Jenny” — “a girl” who left her job by sending co-workers a series of photos where she uses a whiteboard to insult her boss and expose his fondness for Farmville.
We know that the Steve Slater story is true. But what about Jenny’s story?
Almost certainly made up.
The story showed up this morning on theChive.com, a dude-centric site run by brothers John and Leo Resig, who own a series of photo/humor sites. Before that, the Resigs ran a site called Derober, which features doctored photos of celebrities in their underwear.
And Derober’s moment in the spotlight came back in December 2007, when it made up a story about Donald Trump leaving a $10,000 tip on a $82.27 bill. The story was convincing enough to fool Fox News and the New York Post (both of which are owned by News Corp., which also owns this site).
Brothers John and Leo Resig have fooled millions with previous gags so the likelihood of 'dry chalkboard job-quitting Jenny's' story being valid is slim. It's still funny though!
Maybe Americans will be blessed beyond our wildest dreams by Barack Obama quitting the job he hates anyway, via a dry erase board.
