Why waste words: Come on man - Resign

I'm not seeing the need to waste too many words:

  1. voluntarily leave a job or other position.

    synonyms: leave · go · hand in one's notice · give in one's notice · give notice · stand down · step down · bow out · walk out

    • give up (an office, power, privilege, etc.).
      "four deputies resigned their seats"
      synonyms: give up · leave · vacate · stand down from · retire from · demit · [more]
    • chess
      end a game by conceding defeat without being checkmated. "he lost his Queen and resigned in 45 moves"
  2. (be resigned)
    accept that something undesirable cannot be avoided.
