In the video uploaded on April 25, 2023, Mari reveals that she had put in her two-week notice to her boss who then requested she work until June 8th — a whole month longer than Mari wants to work.

“So I’m going to have ChatGPT write an email response of me pretty much saying that I can’t be sad and poor for another month in a professional way,” she revealed.

Although Sillyyerba hoped ChatGPT would have reworded the point of her prompt, she was surprised to find out how blunt the popular AI chatbot really is.
