Most of the people who ever had to deal with office work can attest that handling e-mails can be a pretty boring task. “Schedule“ this, “forward“ that and with the number of letters people send each other, it all eventually accumulates to hours of writing and clicking and reading. And all of it is so darn boring. Well, one Reddit user who goes by a quite confusing name Sigdavtilmig, was up for a pleasant surprise when they opened one of the emails that they were expecting.
One person recently got an automated e-mail response they did not expect
The message, that was sent from a person named Roy, said:
I know, I know. You got an immediate reply. And You were all like: “Ah! So he CAN answer mails!“
But alas, dear writer. I am off to a sunny island with the two people I love most. No, not Luke Skywalker and Jimi Hendrix. My wife and my son!
但是，真是太不幸了。因为我现在正和我最爱的两个人在一个阳光明媚的小岛上度假。我说的不是Luke Skywalker（星球大战角色）和Jimi Hendrix（著名美国音乐人），而是我的妻子和儿子！
Nothing but a week of sun and quality time with my two favorite people.
It’s the recipe to happiness. I highly recommend you try it. With your loved ones, I mean. You can’t have mine. That’d be freaky.
“Anyway. I won’t be replying to you. Usually people write they have no access to mail or phone and we all know that’s a lie – they just don’t want to reply. I am however deleting outlook from my phone for the week and roaming is off, so I literally cannot be contacted until I am back, which will be Tuesday, December 11th.
I look forward to replying to you then …unless I get eaten by a shark or something.
If that does happen, then it’s OK. The shark would be eating a happy meal.
I only ask you remember me as a kind man who loved vegetarian curries and death metal and whose autoreply made your day a little less ‘winter is coming’ and a bit more ‘island in the sun’.
Have a great week!
Turns out, Roy was away, vacationing on a sunny island with his family (and not Luke Skywalker and Jimi Hendrix, unfortunately). Even though the man took some time off office work, he did put enough energy into writing a lengthy automated response to anyone who’d be looking for him. Props to you, Roy!
原来Roy是和家人去一个阳光明媚的小岛度假了（不是跟Luke Skywalker和Jimi Hendrix去的）。虽然请假去度假了，但他还是很用心地写了一封这么长的自动回复给那些等待他回复的人。干得好，Roy！
