ask for leave
May I ask for leave tomorrow?
Could you ask for leave for me? I need to go home.
I thanked him for the offer but turned it down.
I turned down his invitation.
A: Good afternoon, Tim. I asked for leave this morning, could you tell me something about the meeting in the morning?
B: Certainly. On the whole, the meeting was quite successful. There was a lively discussion on each subject.
A: Sounds great. I regret not taking part in the meeting. I am very concerned about whether the previous resolutions have been passed.
B: Some resolutions have been passed and others need to be discussed at another meeting tomorrow.
A: Do you mean to have another meeting again?
B: Yes, you can go and see Nancy's minutes, very detailed, so that you can familiarize yourself with the contents of the meeting.
A: Nancy? The secretary of our general manager?
B: Yes. Her office is on the third floor to the left.
A: But I don't know her very well. Is it possible that she will lend it to me?
B: Don't worry. She is easy to get along with and very helpful. Just have a try, she won't turn you down.
A: I hope so.
B: If you need any help, just let me know.
A: Thank you.
