Request: v. to communicate a desire for a human(s) to do a subset(s)

When you ask someone to do something it is a request and it can be done politely or it can even be a formal communication in writing asking you to do something. Requests are not commands and you usually have the option of refusing the request.

Polite refusal is frequently necessary to avoid hurt feelings such as a request to attend a wedding which is refused politely due to some more pressing commitment. Refusing a request is properly done by coming up with a realistic or believable excuse or just saying- “Sorry, I can’t do it.”
