Should Hairball Be Excused for Being Late? Vote Now!

This morning, Hairball found himself in a bit of a predicament that made him late for work. The issue started when a tree in his yard fell into the alleyway, causing significant damage. The fallen tree landed on his neighbor's house, taking out not only Hairball's fence but also his neighbor's power lines. Despite the tree not blocking Hairball's car or driveway, he decided to stay home and help clean up the mess before heading to work.

Hairball’s boss, Michaels, feels that since Hairball wasn’t physically blocked from leaving his house, he should have made it to work on time. On the other hand, Hairball believes his responsibility to help address the damage caused by his tree warranted his late arrival.

Now, we turn to you, our listeners, to cast your vote and decide whether Hairball's reason for being late is excusable or not. Here are some photos of the damage to help you decide before you vote.
