Maybe you’re a millennial and didn’t realize that you needed to set up a vacation responder because you’ve never known a world in which email inboxes lay dormant for more than thirty seconds at a time. Maybe you didn’t even know that a vacation responder was a normal professional courtesy that you could have taken advantage of and now you’re back from vacation. Don’t worry! A close cousin to The Back-From-Vacation Email responder, the millennial version of this timeless classic comes with initialisms and emojis that you can personalize or exaggerate according to your level of professionalism.
SUBJECT: ON VACATION LAST WEEK
Hey there! So, yeah, I took a va-cay-cay last week and DOH! I forgot to set up my vacation responder. So if you emailed me and didn’t hear anything, that’s why. And if you’re emailing now and getting this after-vacation responder, just know that OMG I am super-busy and might not get back to you for a while.
