My guess is a combo of mobile home parks tending to be in shitty areas that are known tornado flyways (the same way they're often in flood basins), along with taking more damage because they lack strong foundations, which gets them more attention when they are hit.

Eh, I've worked at jobs, before, where 'I'm too drunk to come in' was a perfectly acceptable excuse. But you really have to know your manager(s) for that one to work.

That being said, I'm going to agree with some of the other posters: 99% of the time, your manager doesn't need to know why you're calling out. A simple 'I can't come in today' works just fine. Doesn't matter if it's because of illness, a family emergency, or your cat's birthday. They don't need to know.

They've known covid had spread to deer for a while. It's one of the reasons we're probably never really getting rid of it. But the fact that it's becoming widespread and common enough in deer populations to make new variants is concerning.

Relatedly, don't fucking feed deer. It makes them congregate and increases the chance of spread! No backyard feeders, no feeding stations, no bait stations.
