Know that I would probably rather be responding to your email; instead I’ll be reliving my childhood “character building” experiences of shoveling the driveway 2-3 times a day (that’s me in Kitimat 1989).

Oh well, who doesn’t want to go and have some fun in Japan?

The Blunt Approach

Because honesty is a helpful device ? A perfect OOO message to make the reader feel guilty but still has rumor surrounding it.


 That’s it! Go out there and enjoy yourself. Nothing feels as good as hitting that Out-Of-Office button.  This little moment means you’re finally leaving on that hard-earned vacation! ? P.S If you need help setting this up in Microsoft Office Outlook or Gmail, just hit us up with a message and we’ll help you out.
