An employee may need to take either full-day or half-day leave from work depending upon the importance of the reason behind taking the leave. At times things come up your way accidentally and you need to plan things urgently. In case of asking for a half-day leave from the boss, if you require it on an urgent basis then a good idea would be to send a simple text message to your boss through your mobile phone.
The text message need not be too long for reading, it should rather be concise and to the point. You should simply state the reason for your leave for the day making sure that you will complete all your work in time. It should not be a detailed note as this would simply disinterest the reader from having it read till the end.
SMS send through mobile phone are normally written short so while sending an SMS to your boss you need to avoid putting any unnecessary detail. You just need to focus on the point of discussion which is that for some reason you cannot be available at work due to which you would require to take a half-day leave on the date stated and that you will join from the next day with full hours’ duty.
