Funny Out-of-Office Messages for Manufacturers

1. I'm out of the office and won't be responding, but I leave you with a joke so bad you won't email me again: 

Where did they manufacture smells back in the day?
At the Ol' Factory.


2. I’ll be out of the office from mm/did to mm/dd and won’t be responding to many emails. However, if you have an urgent question about XYZ you can move your message up the queue by donating 10 cents to my vacation beverage fund. When I reach your contribution I’ll respond!


3. I am on vacation from mm/dd to mm/dd. I will allow each sender one email. If you send me multiple emails, I will randomly delete your emails until it is pared down to one. Choose wisely. Please note that you already sent me one email.


4. 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.

5. I am currently on vacation. I have a cell phone, but I will not be giving the number out. If you can guess the number, however, I will take your call.


6. I'm not at work today. Unfortunately, I'll be back tomorrow.


7. Who has ten fingers and is currently at the job? Not me! I'll be back on mm/dd. Unrelated, we'll be having a mandatory safety training when I get back.

On Thursday
