I want to ask my boss if he has some free time. That I want to discus some work.

How can I ask it more politely?

  • Can you describe your relationship with your boss and where you are located? – UnhandledExcepSean Feb 9 at 17:59
  • I am located in India For me the boss is just like a formal big brother – Serene Feb 9 at 18:02
  • I did update my answer with a more formal way, but I’m not from India, so there may be a more appropriate way to say it. – UnhandledExcepSean Feb 9 at 18:10
  • I suggested a change (from "is free" -> "have free time"). The first reading of the question, I thought you were asking "how to ask my boss if he is not married". – ypercubeᵀᴹ Feb 9 at 18:16

Depends on your familiarity with them, but I like “hey ^boss’ name^, when you have a free few minutes, I’d like to talk to you about ^whatever^ please. Thanks!”

A more formal way might be: “Sir, when you have a free few minutes, I’d like to talk to you about ^whatever^ please. Thank you.”

  • yeah...that might be good. thanks for your answer – Serene Feb 9 at 17:53
  • but can you tell me more polite way to say that, because it sounds like he is buddy to me – Serene Feb 9 at 17:55

Hello boss, I'd like a moment of your time to discuss Issue X. Should take about 30 minutes. Is 14:30 ok?
