The most self-absorbed auto-responder I’ve ever received

I received the following email auto-responder this week:

“In a mtg.”

“Really?” I thought to myself. “That’s your auto-responder: you’re in a meeting?! And you’re so important that you can’t even spell out meeting??!!”

Jeez. “Out of office” or “on vacation” notices are one thing. But life must be pretty bad for the ego that feels inclined to tell ALL correspondence that they’re “in a mtg.”

Incredible, actually.
