I had emailed a recruiter I found on LinkedIn as I am looking for a job. Her profile said she was on parental leave till Fall 2017, but I emailed her anyway as email doesn't really require immediate action on the other person's side to respond like a call does.
I got an automated reply telling me she'll be back in September, and then an email from her saying the following, "What you can also read at the top of my profile is that I'm parental leave. Please come back later this fall." I thought this was a rude response, but I replied to her saying "Sure, all the best".
Was I wrong to email her, or was she unnecessarily rude?
