What I want to write in my out of office message:
I am not currently in the office, cos I’m at the greatest motor-sports event of the YEAR -The F1 GRAND PRIX!
I’m marshalling, which means I have access to the track and get to see the drivers up close and smell the burning rubber as they drive past me at 400 kmph.
I know I should be answering your mail, but frankly my dears… I don’t give a damn!
I’ll be available on the phone, but I’ll be darned if you can hear me over the sound of the cars zooming past, so don’t bother calling!
What I will be putting up instead:
I am out of the office on the 13th of Nov, 2011 and will not have access to mails. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
I will be reachable on the phone for any urgent requirements.
Sometimes it’s wiser to not speak your mind!
