I recently read an auto-response from a client, which announced that he would return to work on Tuesday, the 80th. Of course, this was a typing error. Unfortunately, though, it was impossible to tell when he would actually return. Did he mean Tuesday, the 28th of November? Thursday, the 30th?
This short post is just a reminder to proofread your out-of-office response very carefully. Thousands of people may read it in your absence. It would be a shame to confuse that many people.
By the way, I am out of the office visiting relatives in New Jersey and Florida. Back on the 80th–I mean the 18th!
