• 8 out-of-office funnies! I'm not really out of the office. I'm just ignoring you. 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. Sorry to have missed you but, I am at the doctor having my brain removed, so that may be promoted to management. Thank you for your e-mail. Your credit card has been charged R10 for the first ten words and R5 for each additional word in your message. Hi. I'm thinking about what you've just sent me. Please wait by your PC for my response. Hi! I'm busy negotiating the salary for my new job. Don't bother to leave me any messages. I've run away to join a different circus. 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".
