Do you get sick of reading the same old auto-responders from co-workers who are out of the office? I sure do.
When I go away for more than a few days, I tend to set up an auto-responder that's slightly less boring that the normal "I'm out of office with occasional access to email until ..."
I just configured mine, since I'll be elsewhere for the next few days:
I'm out of office for the ritual slaughter of turkey and will have only occasional access to email. You have been warned. :-)
Now, I fully admit that these may be amusing only to me. But that's never really stopped me from trying. Being able to amuse yourself is sometimes the only way to stay sane.
I've found that it's best to keep 'em short, otherwise nobody will read it all the way to the end.
Do you use a non-standard message to notify people of your absence via email? If so, what is it? Or what's the best one you've seen?
