You know what your Monday needs? Some epic insubordination.
Because let’s face it, we all secretly wish we had the cojones to do what Charlo Greene did this weekend. The reporter for CBS affiliate KTVA-TV in Anchorage, Alaska quit her job live on the air after announcing that she owned a medical marijuana business. And just like any professional, she choose her words carefully:
“F— it, I quit,” she said, before shrugging, and walking off the set.
The broadcast then cut back to the anchor, who was so shocked by the whole outburst that she could hardly speak.
The surprise walkout came after Greene did a report on the Alaska Cannabis Club. At the end of the report, she revealed that she was actually the owner of the club and announced that she would be quitting her job to fight for “freedom and fairness” — which to her, means legalizing marijuana in Alaska.
Perhaps to show that she wasn’t kidding around, Greene later posted an Indiegogo page to raise $5,000 to help campaign for legalization efforts across the state.
KTVA 11, meanwhile, tweeted out an apology:
Viewers, we sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.

Funny, because we could swear she quit.
