I sent my boss an email regarding personal issues I was having inside and outside of work, and I stated I wanted to use personal time off I had accumulated.
Within the email, I also stated I would reach out to coworkers to help find coverage for the three days I had asked for off.
Instead of them responding back via email stating wether or not the days off would be approved or not, boss sent me a short text message only saying not to reach out to coworkers for coverage, they’d take care of it.
No questions I had within the email were answered nor did I get an actually approval for the time off. I’m wondering if the situation was handled appropriately and if it’s totally normal for a boss to text a short response back rather than answering on top of my actual email?
