Subject: “I’ll get back to you once I’m back from my long-awaited trip to the fridge.”

If you’re taking a vacation and staying home, your clients or coworkers may still expect you to pop into the office and answer their emails. Use this autoresponder to let them know you’re really not available — even if you’re bumming around on the couch.

Example

Hey,

Thanks for your email. I’m on vacation. On the couch. Eating chips. And bingeing Stranger Things for the eighth time (don’t tell anyone).

Unfortunately, I can’t answer your email (even though my office is three feet away). I’ll get back to you once I’m back from my long-awaited trip to the fridge. Bought tickets on TripAdvisor and everything.

I’ll be back in the office on the third and will get back to you then.
