谷歌员工女儿写信为父请假一天 获批一周


Sometimes all you have to do is ask.

A Google employee is getting a week off work to spend with his young daughter thanks to an adorable note she wrote to his boss.

Katie begged the internet giant to give her father just one day off to celebrate his birthday.

'Dear google worker,' the handwritten note reads. 'Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off. Like he can get get a day off on wednesday. Because daddy ONLY gets a day off on saturday.'

The little girl’s plea didn’t end there.

'P.S. It is daddy’s BIRTHDAY!' she wrote in blue crayon. 'P.P.S. It is summer, you know.'

Daniel Shiplacoff, her father’s boss, saw the letter and responded: 'Dear Katie, Thank you for your thoughtful note and request.

'Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people across the globe.

'On the occasion of his Birthday, and recognizing the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time. Enjoy!'

While some observers have commented that it could merely be a publicity stunt, Google confirmed to Huffington Post and The Blaze that the letter was authentic and the employee was getting the vacation time.

Pictures of the letters were shared on Imgur and have gone viral. The identities of the girl and her dad have not been revealed.
