New York, NY 98989

Dear Mr. Clarke:

Please consider this letter as formal notification of my intent to resign from my position as a Waiter from AA Restaurant on a 1-week notice, effective March 9.

Working with AA Restaurant was a pleasant experience. I enjoyed working in an environment conducive to learning as well as having great coworkers.

I put in many hours of thoughtful consideration before I decided to leave. Many angles made me feel that my decision to resign may not be good. But after much deliberation, I realized that I have to move on due to a domestic problem.

I am sad to leave AA Restaurant, a place that taught me so much and developed me professionally. I have learned all that I know about the food service business.

Thank you so much for the guidance you have provided throughout my tenure. I wish you and my colleagues all the best in your future endeavors.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do during the transition to assist in hiring and training someone to replace me.
