Hi sir,

I would like to request 2 days leave for my personal reason. My leave starting from 21st July to 22 July and will start to work again on 24th.



What do you think?? Is it polite? I work in a small company, so we don't have a big gap between boss and the workers. Emotion: stick out tongue

Hello, sweet strawberry - and welcome to English Forums. No matter how small the organization, there is always an advantage in being polite. It would be better if you could give some indication of the kind of 'personal reasons' in your letter.
