  5. How to Ask for a Day Off over Text

When asking for a day off over text, it’s important to be professional and clear. Here are a few steps you can follow:

  1. Begin by addressing the person you need to request time off from (e.g. “Hi [Manager’s name],”)
  2. State the specific date(s) you need off and the reason for the request (e.g. “I would like to request the day off on [Date], as I have a [reason for the request]”)
  3. Ask if the request can be accommodated (e.g. “Can I take that day off?”)
  4. Thank the person in advance for their time and consideration.


“Hi [Manager’s name], I would like to request the day off on [Date], as I have a [reason for the request]. Can I take that day off? Thank you for your time and consideration.”

It is important to be polite and respectful when asking for a day off, and to give your manager enough notice so they can plan accordingly. It’s also a good idea to confirm the date and any other details with your manager before assuming that the day off is granted.

When asking for a day off over text, it is important to be clear and direct. Start by stating the specific date or dates you would like to take off, and the reason for your request. It is also a good idea to confirm your availability leading up to and following the requested days off, to ensure that your absence will not cause any disruptions to your team’s workflow. Remember to use a polite and respectful tone, and thank your employer or supervisor in advance for considering your request.
