Retiring Boss Gives Staff $13 Million To Say Thank You | 22 Words

A boss has gone viral after he gave his staff the incredible gift of $13 million, and his reason for the gesture is so wholesome...

One man has left his employees shocked this week...

And his incredible kindness has seen him go viral.

But, not everyone likes to work for someone...

Some prefer to be their own boss as opposed to working the typical 9 to 5.

One click on Twitter reveals some strange boss stories from employees.

Safe to see, people didn't hold back.

Hot dogs

This is insane and amazing, and it is extra amazing because hot dogs are probably the food that most resemble fingers.

Microwaved Pepsi

I have so many questions. Who microwaves soda? Who wants warm soda? And who chooses Pepsi over literally any other soda?

Perhaps you've heard

What a way to start a conversation! Also, this woman (the one who clawed her ex-husband's eyes out) is now my hero.


Oh man the inefficient processes I have been forced to adopt over the years make me nuts. It's always because older people don't understand technology.

Two jobs

She clarifies in subsequent tweets that it was, in fact, two full-time jobs, and he kept up this charade for at least a year-and-a-half.

Punted moms

I guess punting bouquets of flowers isn't something you're supposed to do when you work at Home Depot's garden center. Who knew?


This is so many kinds of unacceptable I really have no words for this. This is no kind of task to assign to your hourly receptionist.


Sure, you can just "get" an elephant. Man, in case you needed any more evidence that conservatives are insane.

Frosted tips

Um, yeah, unless you are like, a model or something, it is not OK to demand that your employees give you a "heads up" when they are going to change their appearances.

Gummy frogs

This is really endearing! And those gummy frogs are delicious.

White male boss

This is horrifying beyond belief but also somehow not at all surprising. White men are monsters.

So, it's safe to say...

Working for someone else isn't always ideal.

But, one guy has proven that sometimes, having a boss has its major perks.

Chief Executive of Admiral, David Stevens, has given his employees a huge gift this week.

David co-founded the motor insurance company with his wife, Heather in 1991.

But, he has decided the time has come to retire.

And he came up with the best farewell gift for staff...

David is sharing out a huge sum of money among the company's 7,500 staff in south Wales and 3,000 overseas workers.

$13 million, to be specific.

The parting gift means full-time staff will get $1,300, while part-time employees will receive $650.

The fifty-eight-year-old thinks it's the best way to thank staff for their hard work.

"Saying thank you to all Admiral staff in this way is the right thing to do and I'm so proud and fortunate to have worked with such a special group of people," he said.

He continued:

"Their hard work and dedication has allowed Admiral to grow from a start-up to over 11,000 staff worldwide. And all of this while remaining a great place to work. "Thank you from myself and my wife to everyone at Admiral."

What an incredible gesture!

David is far from the only generous boss, scroll on to hear about another...
