  • I'll just sms my boss and tell him the truth that I overslept and I'll be in late. So far the latest I've stepped in is 1 hour. But if I overslept due to work exhaustion I'll take half day urgent leave and come in after lunch.

    • happened to me too twice before. bcoz i got night class the day before and overslept until 1hr late!! my boss is also nice. so i just sms her saying i m overslept will reach office late. of course, i gotta compensate by working late on that day. usually she doesn't mind even if i go home on time. bcoz she knows me well, not purposely one. hohohoho..

      • I'd freak out, get ready as fast as I could, then call my boss and tell him I gonna be running late. I dont work mornings anymore so I dont have that problem anymore

        • This company that I am working in wouldn't allow even a min late

          They practise - can only b early at work, cannot be late. Can work OT but cannot leave early

            are you working for japanese firm? I heard they are very particular on timing.

              if bosses are nice, and u close to them den let them *** and go later abit ***.

              if nt, mc is the safest way.

              • hi all, do you all give any reasons when taking urgent leave? or u all just mentioned that its due to personal matters?

                • depends on how long you have been working and how often do you take urgent leave. If you take it too often than you might need to come up with a good reason or rather one you have not used before lol, if you rarely take than you can just give any reason I suppose.

                    • there was once i overslept, i sms-ed boss the truth and asked if i could take leave for the day, he was kind enough and granted my leave.

                      but of course if i had urgent tasks to complete on the day, i will probably tell him i have overslept, and will still be reporting to work, just that will be late.

                      but for some of you whose bosses are strict to grant leave, perhaps will have to lie if you do not want to go to work. since leave days are not easily granted, urgent leave maybe a problem as well, the best is to lie being sick.

                      • I will just take mc, no point going in late as that will reflect badly on myself to my boss. I think he will remember me and get blacklisted. So i rather go to the doctor and get a mc for the day.

                        • its always best not to take urgent leave if necessary , at times you are late because of valid reason eg. you are new ,that will depend on bossess

                          • i was working as a temp previously and have to fill up the timesheet for our working hours. Usually i will still fill up 830-530pm but go earlier next day to make up for it i think ppl don't really care about you staying overtime because they cannot see also... going earlier can "see" better.
