As my boss is the final person to approve leave of some people in the company, I usually would come across quite a few hilarious reasons to take leave. I mean, not the reasons that are funny, just the way they word their reasons are pretty hilarious.
To me, I find annual leave is an entitlement. There is no need to mention reasons, unless you took emergency leave or you had finished your allocated leave before the year ends.
I came across a funny reason to take leave today.
“Long appointment with dentist. Major repair work required.”
Lol! The project manager must be thinking of his work when he was applying his leave.
My boss’ driver is very fond of putting this in every leave application form.
“Untuk beristirehat.” (Malay: to rest and relax)
A few weeks ago, his reason was:-
“Untuk berehat dan menenangkan fikiran.” (Malay: To rest and to calm the mind. Haha! I didn’t know being a driver have to think that much)
One of the managers is very detailed about taking his annual leave that he had to attach flight details to his application form.
I saw his reason to take annual leave.
“To take my wife for a much deserving holiday to Cambodia.”
Have you come across any funny way of wording reasons to take leave?
