On Monday August 21, the United States will get to see a TOTAL solar eclipse. You'll be able to see it no matter where you are. The last solar eclipse happened in 1979 and the next North American total solar eclipse will happen in 2024. So needless to say, PEOPLE ARE EXCITED.
Well, except maybe for one mom who wanted to RESCHEDULE it because it's on a school day. YES, THIS IS REAL. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas is having a viewing party for the solar eclipse. They made a Facebook event for it and one mom wrote, in a since deleted comment:
" Most kids go back to school that day. Can it be done on a weekend?"
I'm sorry, WHAT? It's a viewing party... for the sun. It's like she's saying, "Sorry Mr. Sun, It's a school night. Can we reschedule for Saturday?"
Sorry, guys. We have to reschedule the eclipse because it conflicts with this person's schedule. pic.twitter.com/ae72z3sUgQ— Juli Caldwell (@ImJuliCaldwell) August 8, 2017
So, of course, the internet lost it & people started leaving comments like:
Phil Landsberg: "I'm attending one in NYC, same day and time, and doubt the sun will want to show up for *yours* too. One of us is bound to be disappointed."
Johanna T. Che: "Please reschedule, my period is coming in that day."
I'm gonna go ahead and guess that the school will have their own "viewing party" of sorts. **Note: I'm sure she thought it was just an event about solar eclipses, but the internet doesn't let people get away with anything.**
