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.

Not so long ago in a country not so far away, there was a somewhat skinny, nerdish boy with a babyface who fell madly in love with the most beautiful girl in the world. The only problem was that the girl lived in another country, with a funny different dialect, crappy roads and no government.
However, the girl’s beauty and kindness was so overwhelming that he had no other choice than to quit his job and emigrate. He even wrote a blogpost about it (yes, that’s how modern lovestories go). And on a magical day, almost 1,5 years ago the boy (as soon as he realised Kate Upton was out of his league) asked the girl if she wanted to be his wife for ever and ever ever.
And she said yes.
And this saturday, they are getting married.
Well, that boy is Polle and that girl is Marieke.
To celebrate this modern lovestory, Polle and Marieke are on honeymoon and *won’t be coming back until June 6th*. A well-deserved break from #worlddomination.
That all, however, has a downside. *Polle won’t be able to read his email too much, so you might experience a substantial delay in email replies.*
As the best honeymoons are made up from instagram, twitter and facebook-free moments, you won’t be able to follow their trails via twitter, facebook, instagram or blogs. If you really want to read something cool, try one of Polle’s favorite books.
Thank you,

P.S. To all burglars: yes, we have a house-sitter. Don’t bother trying.
