PLEASE...If you are going to be out of the office for more than one day, please use your Out of Office in our Outlook to it's full advantage. IE: Put the day you are gone through the day you will return into the message.
Putting this as your message doesn't do anything for me:
I am currently out of the office. I will return your message upon my return.
When I find out from another person that you're actually out of the office until 12/7, it makes me what to hurt you...badly. Especially because you are a critical step in the process of getting my instructors paid. Tell me who I actually need to call/send this information on to so that it can continue to get processed. ::headdesk::
