    As someone who has occasionally needed to take a day off for personal reasons, I know how awkward it can be to call out of work last minute. That’s why I created a free printable excuse letter to make the process easier.

    This generic fill-in-the-blank excuse letter can be customized with your name, date, and reason for missing work. I’ve included several common scenarios like family emergency, illness, and car trouble. All you have to do is pick the excuse that fits best, print it out, add your signature, and you’ve got an official-looking letter ready to give your boss.

    I tried to write the letter in a formal but sincere tone. My goal was to make a letter that acknowledges the inconvenience of missing work while still getting your need for the day off across. That way, your manager has documentation for HR purposes but also understands this wasn’t planned.

    Having a stack of these printable excuse letters by the door can be a real lifesaver. You can quickly fill one out and leave it on your manager’s desk if you wake up sick or have a personal crisis. It looks more professional than a last-minute email or phone call.

    Let me know if this free printable excuse letter comes in handy for you! I’m happy to provide it as a simple solution for those unavoidable yet awkward days when you need to miss work unexpectedly. Feel free to print and share as many copies as you need. Here’s to catching a much-needed mental health day or sick day when you need it!
