    Rewriting

    Can anybody help me and rewrite my sentence:

    Each year as we get closer to Christmas all of the ladies always seem to want to take time off for shopping, traveling, and the like, and if everyone just calls in sick like last year, this is a hardship for everyone, so letís make an effort to work together to schedule time off. HR requests that vacation time should be scheduled in advance as soon as possible for the month of December to prevent conflicts, okay? Thanks, and happy holidays

    Welcome to the forum.

    It seems quite early in the year to send a message about Christmas arrangements. Saying "happy holidays" to anyone in the middle of February will be rather confusing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You're more tolerant than I, ems. I gave up responding to native speakers of Igbo from Andorra last Octember.

    Tee hee. I'm a bit slow on the uptake tonight!
