This Mom Sees Your 'I Quit' Video And Raises You A Work-At-Home Parody

Marina Shifrin's job was costing her time, energy and relationships. So she quit -- and staged an "interpretive dance" video to Kanye West's "Gone" which has taken the Internet by storm.

Brenna Jennings is a work-at-home mom who is similarly tired of living in a trashed house with an unmade bed and a bathroom that's "a petri dish." (Apparently it's been like a frat party at her place for years.) So she wants everyone to know: she's done too. Sort of.

"When I saw Marina's video the first thing I thought was that she reminded me of younger me," Jennings, who blogs at Suburban Snapshots and on HuffPost, told us via e-mail. "And I wished I'd had the smarts and moves to quit my first horrible soul-sucking job the way she did (though back then we still faxed things, so it may not have been possible)."

As she says on YouTube: "More years, less moves, same message."
