I have absolutely no idea what the first part of your e-mail means but he probably meant no to your request of paying vacation hours. I work in HR and we don’t allow that.

Yea, no because then it would work out that you are paid for an extra week that month.  You work 4 weeks and get paid for 5?  No

I don’t understand what you were asking him.

I still have no idea what the first part of your email means, but why don’t you just send him a follow-up..

I am totally confused. Why do you want to be paid for vacation hours you didn’t take?

Even with your explanation I have no idea what you’re talking about in the first part of your e-mail. It looks like text-speak gibberish. The only part that is comprehensible is the second part where you’re asking for extra money, so I’m going to guess that he’s saying “no” to that.

This is a really confusing (and terribly unprofessional) email and response.  I’d have never sent it in the first place, but if I absolutely had to reply for clarification instead of speaking to my supervisor, I’d simply say something like:

I’m sorry– I know I asked more than one question in my previous email.  Do you want me to pay you?  Second to that, would you be able to buyout a week of my vacation that I don’t plan on taking, i.e. paying me for a week in addition to my normal weekly pay this cycle?  Thanks and so sorry for the confusion.

He probably doesn’t understand what you were asking him in the first part and doesnt realize he just declined you paying him back for something. 

But it does appear that your request to be paid out for vacation was declined. 

Do you always communicate with your boss in shorthand like that?

I’m in HR and most places I have worked do not allow that so I’m guessing that’s what he is saying no to.

I would email him back in regards to your first question though.
