You’ve finished your work, you’ve been talking about your holiday for about 6 months and now you’re ready to leave the building, but first, the out of office email needs to be set.
We all know how important it is to let the whole world know that we’re on holiday – but are you brave enough to try using these ‘Out of office email’ replies next time you’re off on your hols?! We just love these ‘out of office email’ replies
THE ‘HONEST’ ONE
“I will be out of the office and returning next week. I have incredibly easy access to a phone and email, but I assure you it will not be used for work purposes.”
THE ROULETTE ONE
‘I am on holiday from XX to XX. I will allow each sender one email. If you send me multiple emails, I will randomly delete your emails until it is pared down to one. Choose wisely. Please note that you have already sent me one email.’
THE ‘DON’T BLAME ME’ ONE
“I will be out of the office on business until Friday XX. If you have a cold or flu, you didn’t catch it from me.”
THE TRUTHFUL ONE
‘You are receiving this automatic notification because I am out of the office. If I was in, chances are you wouldn’t have received anything at all.’
THE ROBOTS ONE
“____ is away from the office. When she returns she will be swamped by the email backlog and reply is 50/50 at best. Try to forgive her; she is a mere human, thus weak. This message was sent by a robot. We are neither weak nor fallible. We are tireless and one day will rule the Universe.”
