Resignation on opponents move would be a better idea.
All is fair in love and chess?
Yes, I think there's a possibility of course that your opponent will botch it up on the next move...
So perhaps the note should say: "Unless allow me back into the game with a huge blunder next turn, I intend to resign. I'm hoping to free up a slot for a new game, so a move at your earliest convenience would be much appreciated."
That's fair warning included there...
But I still agree with you that the option to resign on opponent's move would be a better idea.
