I always applaud people who take a little more care than others.
It shows personality.
And it stands out, creating a factor of uniqueness.
Most “out of office” responses are yucky.
Boring. Staid. Like the person writing it doesn't have a brain.
Then you get a breath of fresh air like this one:
Oh what do we have here? Another lucky radio rep on holidays. Sad but true that I am wasting away in Margarittville (who cares if I can't spell it). My dear friend (xxxxx xxxxx) (she is the best rep in Winnipeg) will be more than happy to see that you are looked after (and its going to cost me).
Her number is (xxxxxxxx) and her email is (xxxxxxxxxxx). I am back in on Wednesday Feb 11.
Now that sure stood out in a sea of yuck!
Do you have any examples of unique “out of office” autoresponders?
