Show of Support Letter Against Bashers

Dear Lauren,

What happened?

I seriously don't understand what's going on and the things they keep saying about you. People can be such idiots. Just ignore them. You've just gotta brush it off and keep moving forward.

Request for Overtime Pay and Changes in Work Roster

File a Work ROTA request plus overtime pay with this letter:

Dear Sir,

I would like to request that my number of working hours be drop to the mandatory 8 hours as specified in the employment contract I signed with the recruitment agency. I have been working excess hours (around extra 5 hours daily) and on certain days that we are short staffed, I perform double duty shifts without any reliever on standby. This is outside of our usual work hours the company has agreed upon with the Union. If the excess hours of work continue, I would like to ask for hourly compensation for the additional hours. 

As you are well aware of, our shift supervisor continuously changes my work roster without notifying me in advance. Please take into account that there should be an on-call allowance for working emergency hours particularly for the night shift.I believe this is past due and a reasonable request.

Please see the attached ROTA spreadsheet for your review

It would be great to hear from you soon on the matter.

Dear Boss,

I'm not feeling so well and I'm going to see a doctor later today. I injured my back last weekend when I slipped down getting out of the tub.

I will advise you within the day what the doctor tells me. Hopefully, I can go back to work soon with some pain medication.

Cannot Attend an Event Letter

How to casually tell a friend that you cannot attend their event without making such a big fuss over things.

Dear Ludivine,

Please tell Marnie I cannot attend her event. I'm a busy bee this weekend.
I really do feel bad for missing out on the party of the year.
But I really have to be up North for work. Oh darling, you know how it is.
Post your photos okay.

Much love,

To Answer the Question Letter

There's nothing better than showing a co-worker your positive support to something you don't have a clue about. 

Dear Gillian,

Getting back to your question - I honestly don't know. I haven't gone through all the details yet. I don't even know if this is something they'll look into. But have a little faith, they might just say 'Yes!'

Keep your fingers crossed.


Wedding Anniversary Letter: Love Letter to Wife

Dear Wife

Looking back to this wonderful day, four years ago, my life took a different turn. I made a vow to share it with someone very special. We went through a lot, the good and the bad together, hand in hand. We had our best days in each other's arms and we weathered the tough ones head on, knowing we had each other's back. 

Now after four years of married life, we might seem like the regular old married couple, only richer and much blessed to have four little miracles - Ada, Maya, James and Hartley. All born out of our love.

You know what dear? I love, admire, respect you - the love of my life - as I did when I first met you that rainy night on that busy street waiting for taxi ride. I'm glad I flagged you a cab and I'm crazy thankful that you offered to share it with me. We were fortunately headed the same way. And up until now, we're still headed the same direction together, in fact this is theone ride that I will see through the end with you. I am not afraid to grow old with you Maggie, my sweet. I look forward to the years to come, the merry memories, the Christmases and the summers and the slew of storms we will very much face together with our hearts strong. My dear wife, you are my rock and I love you!

Happy Anniversary!

Much love,

Asking your bank for a letter stating Proof of Funds is standard practice in the banking industry. Such a letter showing your financial statement allows you to make transactions such as purchasing a house, making travel arrangements or committing to a business deal. You could ask your bank manager to write an official letter in your behalf.

Dear Bank Manager,

I would like to formally request for an official letter stating that the funds in my account are sufficient for any business transaction. I need this letter by next Tuesday, as this will serve as satisfactory evidence of my financial stability. But please do leave out pertinent details like my account number.

Hope you could heed my request.

Request for Leniency Letter: Character Reference Letter for Judge Example

When writing a character reference for a judge, think about how know you well that person and what's makes him a possible positive member of the community. Describe his upbringing, his best character traits, his good behavior, how long you've known the person and how the incident has change his life.

Keep the character letter for court  in a formal and respectful tone, but always remember to make it personal and thoughtful. You do not want to present at template letter, you want the judge to feel that you really know this person and that he deserves a second chance.


Here's a sample character reference example for the judge:

Dear Judge Jeremiah,

My name is Wendy Saul. I have been living in Nasau County with my husband Jim Saul and our three children for 22 years.

In those 22 years, we have been friends with Leslie Ann Baker and Harvey Baker for 18 years. We met them the first day they've moved in as neighbors. Our children and their children are very close.

Your honor, I am writing this letter in behalf of the Saul family particularly for their son, Nesbitt Saul. We would like to attest that Nesbitt is a wonderful and respectful young man, we have seen him grow up before eyes and we have known him as a very kind individual who is very considerate of others. The Saul family has been through trying times especially after Wendy's surgery, she has suffered from a blood clot which has rendered the left side of her body paralyzed. All her children live in the city now and only Nesbitt has chosen to stay to care for Wendy. He has supported his mother even through her period of physical therapy. In fact, I would like to stress that Nesbitt takes great care of his mother. His daily tasks of feeding, washing and clothing her, is mainly what his life was about. As you can imagine Wendy is really distraught over the events that led to Nesbitt's arrest.

We believe Nesbit has duly served his time in both jail and community service. We believe Wendy really needs her son back now more than ever.

We would like to ask that you consider our request for leniency when you make your decision as to his sentencing. We pray that you find it in your heart to give Nesbitt a second chance.

I sincerely appreciate your consideration in this matter.

Wendy Saul

Letter Requesting Company Renewal of Iqama

Any foreign individual working in Saudi Aarabia (Pakistani, Filipino, Indonesian, American) are required to secure an IQAMA, a work permit and residency card. Having an Iqama means you are legally allowed to work in the country and the Saudi goverment requires the company to secure health insurance for its workers in renewal of the iqama. That said, it is the responsibility of the company who hired you to apply for or secure your Iqama.

Dear Sir,

I am Jazlyn Besharmud, I have been working the Accounting department as a Field Cashier for over two years now. My Employee number is 267 and my Passport No is 12246464-555-555. My Iqama is expiring on Novemeber 24, 2018 and I would like to formally request our company Wahed Mohd Enterprises to renew my Iqama before the expiry date.

Please note that should include the health insurance fee as part of the renewal, this was stated in my job contract which I signed with the recruitment agency. As you know, I cannot work at your shops in rotation if my iqama is expired, I would like to spare the company any penalties it might incur with immigration.

At this point, I do not understand the delay of my Iqama, as I have sent numerous request through the proper channels within the company. If the company no longer requires my services, please let me know so I can secure a proper exit visa before my Iqama expires.
