Some of you are just getting back today after a nice summer vacation. Others are working in half-empty offices because their colleagues left for vacation this week.
But few of you will bring the kind of poetic grace to your out-of-office replies as one of my friends did. This elegant lawyer conveyed all the information anybody needed to know in two haikus….
I’m a big fan of injecting a little fun into out-of-office replies and vacation memos. This out-of-office message is the best one I’ve seen this summer, from a lawyer working in the Southwest:
I am at the beach
Will email work at the beach?
Maybe. Maybe not.
Back July 16th
Call Carol if you need help
Otherwise, just wait.
Do you have a better one? Email it in (I’ll need to see the actual chain to confirm that it’s real) and we’ll have an anonymous contest for the best one.
