Leave of Absence Note, Shashi Tharoor-Style
ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence chatbot, has been used in a variety of ways that show the amazing potential of AI in mimicking human conversation. Twitter user Nishanth Vijayan recently asked the chatbot to “write a paragraph explaining my leave of absence tomorrow at work, due to ‘not feeling the vibes’, in the style of Shashi Tharoor,” the author and Congress MP.
Vijayan shared a screenshot of the chatbot’s output: “As I sit here, staring at the clock ticking away in an obdurate manner, I am filled with a sense of trepidation. The vibes, dear colleagues, are not quite right today. The air is thick with an intangible malaise, a feeling of disquiet that permeates my very being. I fear that if I were to step into the office tomorrow, I would be like a fish out of water, floundering in a sea of ennui. And so, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you all that I shall be taking a leave of absence tomorrow. I implore you to understand my predicament, for the vibes are a fickle mistress and one never knows when they may take a turn for the worse. Farewell, my friends, and do take care.”
Tharoor tweeted his response: “Hilarious. But I really can’t see myself writing anything so jejune!”
