Twitter user Nishanth Vijayan shared a descriptive caption about his little experiment along with a screenshot. “I know everyone's tired of ChatGPT screenshots, but this is legit GOLD. Prompt: ‘Write a paragraph explaining my leave of absence tomorrow at work, due to 'not feeling the vibes', in the style of Shashi Tharoor’,” he wrote.

The image he shared shows the leave of absence written in an elaborate and flowery language. “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,” reads the result created by the chatbot.

The post attracted the attention of many, including Tharoor who re-shared it on Twitter. While retweeting it he wrote, “Hilarious. But I really can’t see myself writing anything so jejune!”
