I normally do that or just keep quiet and it seems to work most of the time. I just wasn't thinking when I asked.
A similar thing happened the other week when I told them I was off to Bristol for my days off, starting on the Sunday. I even booked a days holiday for the Thursday so I wouldn't have to go straight into work afterwards. They gave me a closing shift before I went which meant that I finished at 5:20 Sunday morning and only got a couple of hours sleep before leaving. I'm sure they do it deliberately.
