Let A Horse Reply To Your Work Emails While On Vacation
It’s real. We love it. Why didn’t we think of it?
Increased connectivity has helped our world in many ways, but sometimes you just want to live life like a chestnut mare that’s spotted an open gate.
But can we? CBS News reported, “A striking 59% of workers admitted to checking in … at least once a day while on vacation. Nearly one quarter (23%) of those surveyed said they actively engaged with work more than three times per day while on vacation.”
Fortunately, Iceland has come up with a brilliant solution.
That’s right. For absolutely free, you can have a real life Icelandic horse answer your emails. You can even choose a specific horse for the job. I’m partial to HRÍMNIR FRÁ HVAMMI, whose resume includes “assertive” and “shiny hair.”
After building the keyboard, trainer Jelena Ohm of Horses of Iceland trained the horses to walk over at liberty. She commented, “I think they’ve been really enjoying themselves today … playing along really well and having some fun. It’s been a great day.”
And don’t worry, the site states the horses are “trained in corporate buzzwords and your boss will never know the difference.” Sign up for the service today at OutHorse Your Email.
