'Out Of Office' E-Mail Provides Automatic Stress Relief

Santa Ana, CA -- The folks who work with Nancy Franklin can't wait until she leaves the office -- not because she's a bad worker but because a great writer.

Franklin -- a marketing director in Santa Ana, California -- has earned a unique sort of cyber fame for her automatic "out of office" e-mail replies.

For instance, e-mail Franklin when she's out of the office and her computer auto-responds back: "Some very nice men in white coats came and said they wanted to show me my new padded office" or "I'm out of the office having my medications adjusted."

Franklin started her offbeat auto-responds as a way to let off corporate steam but says they became a hit among colleagues, who forwarded them to friends.

Once she realized she was a cult hit, Franklin created a website,, that features more than 75 wacky auto-messages including her favorite: "I'm in a meeting. And you're not. Worry about it. That will give you something to do until I return."
