Leave Messages (SMS) to Boss


This message is to inform you that I am unwell and feeling very down, due to which I won’t be able to make it today. I would be highly obliged if you granted me a leave for one day so that I can take proper rest and join the office in a healthy and active mood.


Hello Sir! I want to keep you informed that I had to take today off due to a sudden family emergency. So, I won’t be able to mark my presence in the office. Kindly accept my leave for one day. I will be very thankful to you for this courtesy.


It’s negligence on my part that I did not inform you prior to an off day, as I got fully overloaded with a bunch of work and my hectic routine made me ignorant of my routine checkup, for which I had already booked my appointment with my physician a month ago. Thanks to the reminder on my phone that I got to know, otherwise assigned tasks in the absence of Mr. [MENTION NAME] have been on my mind since last week as I had to be vigorous in his place as well. It is expected that you will take my application into consideration.


Hello Boss! It is very sad and unfortunate to convey to you that I dealt with a car accident today while I was on my way to my workplace. Luckily, I didn’t get many wounds, but I am not in a good condition to appear today for work, and it would be impossible for me to present myself as my clothes are not presentable for office setup. Also, slight injuries are causing immense pain. I request that you accept my apologies for not making it to work today.


I am apologetic for this unanticipated off day that I want to avail myself of today. I was prepared to arrive at the workplace, but unfortunately, I fell off the stairs yesterday and got numerous injuries. I’m still in agony and can’t manage to walk properly. Due to the prevailing extreme cold season, the body pains are unbearable. For this, I have been advised by the doctor to take painkillers and get proper rest with a healthy diet. I anticipate that you will understand this occasional state of mine. Thank you in advance.


I have been dealing with food poisoning and a severe stomachache since last night, due to which I did not get much sleep. I thought to inform you earlier, but I was so overwhelmed by the poorest ailment that I couldn’t manage to take notice of it. I am going to see my doctor soon to get myself recovered and treated so that I can get back to work in sound health since my feebleness has critically stunned me. Confidently, you will comprehend it and grant me sick leave for three days from [MENTION DATE] to [MENTION DATE].
