    You know, asking your boss for an extra day’s vacation is like asking your kid for a million dollars. It just doesn’t happen. So, if you want extra hours, you have to ask for more. It’s as simple as that. Here are some words which you can say:

    I would appreciate it if you could give me more time to accomplish my tasks.
    “I am feeling overworked and overextended with my current workload.”
    “I need to speak with you about reducing my workload and hours so that I can meet my responsibilities more effectively.”
    “I have exhausted my ability to balance my work and my personal life as a result of my current workload.”
    “Before deciding to impose additional duties, I would like to understand more about the current workload so that I can assess if additional duties are necessary or if a lighter workload would best meet the needs of the company.”
    “I would like my workload and responsibilities to be reviewed to determine if I am being properly compensated for my contributions and dedication to the company.”

    The key is to ask, and then to make it very clear why you want more hours. It’s important that you say why. This will help your boss understand that you are serious about getting more hours. You should also be very specific in what you want. You don’t just want to work on a different project, you want to work on your favorite project.
