TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa man just quit one job to take another.  While that's not out of the ordinary, how he gave his two week notice was.  It may be music to the ears of anyone ever fed up with their work.

Seth Branham will be the first to tell you, he's not a professional musician but it would be his dream job.

"My biggest fan so far is just my daughter, Bailey.  She's about the only one who likes to listen to my music," said Tulsan Seth Branham.

Branham loves music, and loves to sing, but he didn't like his job much.

"I decided if you're going to go down, go down in flames," said Tulsan Seth Branham.

The bosses at his call center job were fine, but he just didn't like being cooped up in a cubicle.

 "The job itself is not for me," said Seth Branham.

So, when he quit, he didn't just quit.  He took his guitar and hat and sense of humor with him when he gave his notice.

Branham sang the old Johnny Paycheck song in front of stunned co-workers.  A video of it was captured on a cell phone.

"It was memorable.  That's for sure.  That's for sure," said Seth Branham.

While co-workers loved it, what did the bosses think?

"Just stunned.  Kind of one of those, did you really just do that?" said Seth Branham.

Branham says it was a temporary job anyway, and yes, he did have another job lined up ahead of time.

"I'm a little bit crazy, but I'm not stupid," said Seth Branham.

Branham says life is too short to be unhappy.  And, he says, no one should be afraid to take a chance and do something different.
