A farewell card is a simple way to say goodbye to a loved one, acquaintance or co-worker and wish him well. Use a funny phrase or funny card to make your goodbyes more lighthearted and cut back on the tears.

When you say goodbye to someone you work with, look for a card that expresses how you feel in a funny way. "Go wreak your havoc somewhere else" is one idea, but only for someone with a good sense of humour. For the co-worker who constantly left a mess behind, give the card that says, "make sure you clean your desk before you leave." Offer more generic funny phrases for co-workers you barely knew or those you didn't have a close relationship with, such as "I'm sorry, but I forgot what you did here..." Treat a close co-worker to a message such as, "hope you impress your next boss better than this one."
Keep tears to a minimum and make your friend laugh, with a humorous goodbye card. Remind your friend of a funny moment the two of you shared, such as a waiter who dropped water all over your table or a specific trip you took together. If you're saying goodbye to a roommate, consider a message such as, "thanks for living with my dirty socks."
Cards for Others
For anyone else in your life, stick to a more generic goodbye message. "I know that you'll come back," is a classic option. Make someone laugh with the message, "this is the best thing about this card", with your signature underneath. "I'm crying on the inside," or, "have a drink for me" are appropriate for people you have a casual relationship with. You can also leave a casual message on the card, such as "goodbye and good riddance" with a smiley face underneath, or "are you still here?"
Draw a Picture
If you don't know what to write on the card, draw a quick picture on the inside. Make one stick figure with a bucket underneath and write a message, saying that the image is you, crying buckets over the person leaving. Consider drawing a photo of a stick figure with dust surrounding it and a message saying that your friend is leaving you in the dust.
