Was told that submitting 3971 on a Saturday does not count for date of submission but that IS when I submitted my leave request. Even with it being submitted on a Monday the response should be made on Thursday. The denied hard copy was dated/signed on Thursday but not given to me until Friday, with my being in an RMPO and the signed copy coming from APO is this just the way it goes or is there a grievance here? Clerk that is in my office accepted my hard copies on Saturday and gave me the denied request today, is on my side, I wasn’t notified in the 3 day window. And I will be doing leave requests online from now on before any of you jump on that-had never had a problem with requests until now. Does Saturday not count as date of submission or was manglement serving me a bs burger?
