    Hey everyone.

    So i get tons of email regarding work and it is becoming commonplace for people to expect an immediate response to their inane emails. I need a quick, standard response that encourages people to call my cellphone if the matter is urgent.

    If you have any suggestions just post em here. I plan on enabling the gmail vacation responder to issue the auto responses.

    I was thinking:

    ??? like that?

    Im just thinking - giving them a time frame to expect a response might be overkill. Usually if people encounter automated systems they find a work around (aka calling me)if the matter is even somewhat important.

    This is an AUTOMATED RESPONSE. Your email has been successfully delivered and it will be ignored in the order it was received. If this is an emergency, please contact 911 immediately, as there is little or nothing I am going to be able or willing to do to help you via email. If you have an urgent problem and need more timely assistance, please contact me directly at (xxx)yyy-zzzz. After screening your message and determining how likely you are to be retarded, annoying or just a general pain in the ass, I might contact you to assist you with your problem. I am open to and accepting of bribes, including but not limited to: sexual favors... from attractive females only please (attractiveness will be judged by my discretion), quality bottles of liquor (top shelf only), "herbal supplements" (wink wink), etc... feel free to get creative.

    "Odds are if you are emailing me, you are a conflict avoiding pussy. Walk your lazy fucking ass over to my cubicle and either verbalize your bullshit request or STFU and stop wasting my time. Yes, this is an automated response because I really shouldn't waste my day replying to your bullshit"
