They’re arguably the worst thing that ever happened to mankind – generic out-of-office replies. Join my fight to get rid of unremarkable out-of-office replies. To help, I’ve collected some great positive exceptions, starting with the one below.

Out of office replies. You got to hate them. They have to communicate an unpleasant message: the person you want to reach isn’t available at the moment. Even worse, most people don’t seem to bother to smoothen this message or even turn this message into something remarkable or even better, something that is worth sharing. It’s pretty easy exceeding expectations in out of office replies, while most of them are plain rude and personal. At Boondoggle, we tried to turn this dreadfull message into something remarkable. Judge for yourself.

Tom de Bruyne’s take on his holidays in the Flemish Ardennes:

I will be back august 2nd. You will recognize me by the smile on my face.
