Dear Mr.Smith,
Iam writing to inform you that today is an appointment for my daughter's vaccination in farwaniya clinic at 10am.
As it is a peak time there can be a possibility for traffic jam and therefore in place of 5-10min it may take more than that to reach clinic so I request 30-40minutes of time off.
I have arranged my assignments with my near by assigned staff moreover I finished my all work till 11o'clock.
I would be extremely grateful if you provide me with time off.
Thank you for all your help and support.
Yours Sincerely
Shoby Shajan

My daughter is 7 years old and this year is her first year in primary school. Last week, she took the middle examination of the term and told me that there would be a parent's metting on this Friday. My wife will be on a business trip in BeiJing at that time so I will need to attend this parent's meeting.

Figo working with me about IUSACELL project currently, I told him to support this whole Mexico project this Friday afternoon. I will also give him my on-line support when he cannot support alone.

I am looking forward of your response.

Basis on the itinerary, which I am given by the Tour Agency, we have a 14days journey. But as you know for such these long travelling 2days vacation before as well as 2days after that is necessary to provide necessity and resting and becoming ready after that; therefore I need a 20days holiday.

Dear Mr Michael,

I am writing this letter as to ask your permissions to have some days off in the company for me dealing with some of my personal matters.

My sister suddenly passed away because of her serious cancer of stomach. Moreover, because of her death, all members in my family seem to be feeling extreme sadness, disappointments and darkness and so do I. Therefore, I cannot face working at the moment and having a good mood at the workplace. Additionally, I do have to have good preparations for burying her.

I wish I would have three-day off from Monday to Wednesday in next week in order to stabilize my emotions and feeling better.

In spite of having some difficulties right now, I am pretty sure that I will get all my jobs done well before being absent in the company. Moreover, I also assign all tasks to my employees properly as well as giving supports to them by many ways such as via the internet or video conference to ensure that there is no effects on the company's working processes.

I am looking forward to receiving your confirmations as soon as possible and do apologize for bothering and wasting your time.
Your Sincerely,
Hoang Nguyen

Dear Mr Edward green,

I am writing to ask about whether I am able to take time off next week.I think I have to go to my country in order to help my mother's work during a specific period.

The reason Why I need to time off is my mother has recently opened a new restaurant in my county.

The restaurant is located in the Incheon Airport so that most customers are foreigners. However,
My mother not only cannot speak in English at all but it is also difficult to employ people who are able to speak English.Thus, My mother are now struggling to take an order.

I think that it would be enough for me to take time off just one month and I have already requested one of my colleagues who is Mr. Darrains will be in charge of my several jobs when I have time off. I could also deal with some urgent issues at night while I am absent. I hope that there will be any inconvenience during my time off.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. John

I planed two weeks vacation to pay a visit to European with my family half a year ago. I am wondering if I could get your approval for my time off request from Nov 1st to Nov 15?

My colleagues have agreed to take over my work assignments during my vacation and here is the detailed backup plan:
1. Jim will continue my code implementation work. He is not only a seasoned Java developer but also a domain expert in the field of J2EE. I do believe that Jim is able to do the job well.
2. David will be my backup for leading daily scrum meeting and reporting the project status to you weekly.

I will have limited time to access e-mail, while I will try as much as I can. Please do not hesitate a moment to reach me through cell phone xxxxx for any urgency.

I am eager to get your support and approval, and I am looking forward your response.

Thank you

Dear Shuvo,
Today I am having a doctor’s appointment around 10 AM. I am writing this letter to request you the work off for some time.

Yesterday was a sleepless night for me because of the severe cold and cough. NHS walk-in centre was not available at that time. So today morning I called them and booked the appointment. I got the appointment around 11 AM. I have to start from office at 10:30AM to catch up my appointment. I guess, it will take nearly 2 hours to complete all the check-up and to get medicine from pharmacy. So totally I need 3 hours of work off.

Pradeep will cover my support activities during that time. I have given enough handover to him about my pending tasks. Also I will cover-up these 3 hours, after 6PM tomorrow, so that billing wouldn’t affect for our project.

Thank you.
Yours faithfully,
Sheik Abdul Kadhar

Before my leave, I will discuss all my updates and work plans with him. Being in the same city, I will be reachable anytime at my email or phone, in case of any urgency.

I will resume working from 30th April, 2014.

Dear Mr.John,
I am writing to ask some time off this month.

The reason,I have to visit my ailing Grand-father.His health condition is in severe situation,and towards the middle of the last month he fall down from the staircase and injured his knees.Fortunately he is out of danger,however he is unable to move due to severe pain.

I am very much aware of the fact that this period is quite important for the organization as we are in the verge of expanding our business;but it is dire need for me to take a leave for one week.Rather than to take leave as i discussed earlier for the next month,I was wondering if it could be possible to take by this week.

I have listed all the details about how the work will run while I am away.Already shared to Smith who is assisting me with the same project.I am not too worried about the tasks as he assured me to give a hand you can count on him.

I await for your prompt response.
yours sincerely....

Hello all, here's my answer:

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am writing this letter to ask for some time off work next week.
The reason for this is that I need more time to work on my master’s degree dissertation which I must deliver after one month, I have managed to complete most of it as I planned. However, my estimations regarding the programming part were not accurate as predicting time for such tasks can be hard.

I think I need at least two weeks so I can dedicate more time to the programming part, besides, such type or work requires longer sessions which I can’t handle during weekdays.

I have already talked to my colleagues about this, and I think they can handle all of my tasks with no problems, I have already shared the source code of all projects I am working on, and I will leave my personal phone number and email with John so you can call me in case of emergencies.

Thanks in advance.

Yours sincerely,
Steve Adams.

Dear Mr. Robinson.
As you may know I am getting married in two weeks time. The main reason of this letter is that to ask you if I can take a week off work?
I would really appreciate your understanding.
I am planning of taking my future wife for a honey moon at Caribean Islands.
This period of time I believe is far for both of us business and me. I can firmly say that my job will be safe as I would like to suggest my Supevisor to take over my place whilst I am off.
He has been training for a year and I think it would be a good time for him to put into practice everything what he has learnt.
Yours sincerely,

Wil Smith.

Dear Miss Jones,

I am writing to you to ask for a time off this coming Friday.

You see, my mother was in a minor accident few weeks ago and twisted her ankle. Because of what happened, she is currently wearing a foot cast. On Friday, she is scheduled for her cast removal and the first session of her physiotherapy. My Dad's supposed to go with her, however, he had an urgent seminar and have to travel out of the country and will be back next week. Hence, I am the only one who can accompany her to her appointment.

I have spoken with my colleague,Sandra, and she is willing to cover my shift. Fridays are usually not a busy day in the clinic so I am confident that she can manage. Plus, she is a very good and experienced nurse. In case she needs some advice with the vaccine schedules, I instructed her to phone me anytime.

Hoping for your kind consideration.

Yours sincerely,
Emma Packer

Dear Mr. Jan,
I am writing with regards of the excuse for few hours off this Monday.
Last week my wife had a car accident and since then she is still renting another. the car had to be dropped at the garage for repair.

Indeed I managed to book an appointment this Monday in XPRESS Garage which is almost 1 hour far from my place; that's why, I kindly request three hours off from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. I trust it would be enough to reach them, drop the car and returning back directly to office.

Monday 10:00 am, a scheduled meeting with Mr. Kim was previously booked to discuss his retail sales. Sara (Sales Manager Assistant) is completely aware about Mr. Kim's current status and meeting's agreed points. I already arranged with Sara to attend the meeting on my behalf and she will summarize it to me once I reach the office

I highly appreciate your cooperation in this regard and looking forward to receiving your confirmation.


Could anyone please rate this---Thanks in advance.

Dear Mr. Frank,
I request you to give me some time off from work on this Thursday as i have to attend a function at my daughter's school.
My spouse was supposed to attend this function however she is not keeping well for the past couple of days, hence cannot make it to the school. The function is for couple of hours so i will be absent from work during 11:00 to 14:00 hours.
The deliverables that were due in my current assignment are ready to be shared with the client and my team member John has been briefed on the same. The session with the client should go well as he has shouldered this responsibility before me joining the project. Also John is known to the client for the past 3 years.
Please do let me know if you have any concerns so that I can address them before today evening. Looking forward for your cooperation.

Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing this letter to advise that I will be away from 10th May to 20th May as my annual leave and will take my son travel to China.
As you know, the school holiday will begin from next month, my son has been keen to have a sightseeing in China for long time with me, which I had ever promised him. By taking this opportunity to travel with him during my 10 days off time, I am quite sure that I can relax myself, and enjoy the journey.
I can guarantee that I will be back from 21st May, since 10 days off is enough for this holiday.
I have already communicated with my workmate Jason what he need to do during my absence. He can manage all the tasks belonging to me and could run the plant every well by himself because of our mutual cooperation and my dedicated training in last 5 years.
