Work unfairly refused my holiday request.. what can I do?

I requested 1 day off next week to spend with my gf as it is her birthday - I requested this a month ago when no one else at my work had requested it. I come into work today to find out that my manager had 'forgotten' to take my request slip to the office and authorised someone else's request on that day instead whom had requested the day off after me! He said there's nothing he can do and is denying me my holiday still even though it's not my fault, I followed the work guidelines and he can see on the sheet the day that i requested it and he even remembered me handing the request to him.

what can i do

    If you're willing to risk losing your job you could always go over his head and complain to his boss.

    Go to his boss and explain.

    Nothing you can do apart from plead your case to the person above the manager who had 'forgotten' to take the request slip to the office, or request another day and follow up your request to check it has been put through to the correct place then do a belated birthday day for your gf

    There is nothing you can do other than ask the person who has the leave allocated if they will swap the day with you. I agree it's annoying, but mistakes happen and you won't die as a result.

    Go to your general manager and tell them your manager is a dumb, fat ***** and that if they don’t approve your holiday you’re gonna best all of their asses
