Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Don't Call This Guy for IT Help

So, someone in Information Technology sends an "I'm away from the office" message to everyone in the entire organization (himself included), immediately after setting up his Auto-Reply message.

This resulted in 80 copies of his "I'm away" mesage in everyone's mailbox, about one every 6-8 seconds. Everyone's. From the Commissioner to the graduate students. 80 separate times his message popped open on my desktop.

The message:

I will be out of the office until Thursday, August 17th. If you need IT assistance, contact [name] at [phone] or or email [name@organization.gov].
My boss's take (name not spared):
Hello, my name is Robert Johnson. I will be out of the office until August 17th, prepare to die.
Boss likes the Princess Bride.

Some people just don't get the message the first time.
