The Best " Out-Of-Office " E-Mail Auto-Replies:

 
1: I am currently out at a job interview and will reply to you if I fail to get the position .

2: I'm not really out of the office. I'm just ignoring you.

3: 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.

4: Sorry to have missed you but I am at the doctors having my brain removed so that I may be promoted to management

5: I will be unable to delete all the unread, worthless emails you send me until I return from vacation on 4/18. Please be patient and your mail will be deleted in the order it was received.

6: Thank you for your email. Your credit card has been charged $5.99 for the first ten words and $1.99 for each additional word in your message.

7: The e-mail server is unable to verify your server connection and is unable to deliver this message. Please restart your computer and try sending again.'

( The beauty of this is that when you return, you can see how many in-duh-viduals did this over and over ).

8: Thank you for your message, which has been added to a queuing system. You are currently in 352nd place, and can expect to receive a reply in approximately 19 weeks.

9: Hi. I'm thinking about what you've just sent me. Please wait by your PC for my response.

10: Hi! I'm busy negotiating the salary for my new job. Don't bother to leave me any messages.

11: I've run away to join a different circus.

AND, FINALLY, THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE:

12: I will be out of the office for the next 2 weeks for medical reasons.

When I return, please refer to me as ' Loretta ' instead of ' Steve '



we actually had discussions about this the other day at work as one of people was away for 3 weeks and his message said he wont be checking email. everyone thought he was bragging that he can go 'cold turkey' without email :)

Oh come on __ this is supposed to be a microstock forum. If I want a 'joke of the day' I can get it anytime I like via the interweb. I don't need you to be my editor.

If you're looking for a social club where 'Nobby No-Mates' can gather or just want to talk meaningless drivel then the SS forums should be ideal.

Perhaps you didn't notice that this is th off-topic forum? Plonk.

ETA: I see you're ignored by 7 members now!! Not surprising.

Question of the day?  Which one is funnier?  I like Phils. Poll anyone?

I appreciate it's 'Off Topic' but do we really have to have a post from this chap on a totally unrelated topic every day __ like he thinks he's our court jester or something? I did bite my lip for the first couple of days. The posts are not original, most of us will probably have had them emailed to us many times before and they have nothing whatsoever to do with this forum. What's the point?

I have no problem with folk choosing to 'Ignore' me. If they're not interested in my view then that's absolutely fine with me. I'm certainly not going to hold back on my views just in case someone I don't know, somewhere on the planet, might get offended by them. That's their problem or their choice as far as I'm concerned. Even SJL is ignored by 3 people and yet he's amongst the top 4 most knowledgeable people on the planet on the subject of microstock. Why do people join a microstock group and then 'Ignore' the people that they stand to learn the most from?

I have to agree with you, but each to their own. 'There is nowt queerer than folk'.

At least the thread title is clear.  Just skip it, like I skip threads about SS.

you and also ignore the off topic section of this forum in your profile settings.  You will never see this area again (unles you 'unignore it') 

I promise never to have anything photo / stock related in this area.   :)
