Ones to Watch. Issue #8. Out of office.
Posted by sophie.hockridge | 28 September
Sorry I’m not here to supply you with your monthly trends update. Well, actually, not that sorry because I’m currently poolside with a cocktail. We need a holiday too you know!
So for this month with lots of you embarking on your own trips before the summer is essentially over, we thought we would provide some fun and more interesting suggestions for your own out of office email. Less generic than the classic "I’m out of the office until September so contact Emma if urgent".
Pick your favourite from the below and be the talk of the office while you are off sipping piña colada's, leaving whoever your Emma is to worry about Excel spreadsheets and Powerpoint slides (sorry Emma, I had to get you back for that one month honeymoon somehow).
As Green Day put it, wake me up when September ends. See you on the last day of the month with some fresh Autumn trends and a glowing tan.
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth - “I would say ‘sorry I’m out of the office’, but then I would be lying”.
Translation F* off - “Whatever you are emailing me about, it will have to wait”.
No worries, No problems - “I am out of the office, where my biggest concern in life is whether to choose factor 20 or factor 30”.
I didn't come on holiday to multitask after all - “Sorry I'm away with limited access to emails. When I say limited access, it's difficult for me to reach down from my sun lounger with two cocktails in hand to pick up my phone”.
Create your own - The Gods at HubSpot have created a handy out of office email generator. Just enter your name, holiday dates, destination and your emergency contacts name (a.k.a your Emma) and let HubSpot work their magic.
