The act of dramatically quitting your worthless job and telling your boss how you really feel about things.

Immortalized in the 1981 song “Take this Job and Shove It” Written and by redneck artist David Allen Coe and performed by country western idol Johnny Paycheck.

In the construction industry a full Johnny Paycheck is punctuated by forcefully throwing your hardhat or a half full beer bottle at the boss.

Variation: "You can't fire me - I quit!!!

Welder #1 "He threw a beer at that cocksucker from quality assurance and sent him to the hospital"
Ironworker #1"I'll have to buy the man beer!"
