id the eclipse totally rock your world?
Nerds and non-nerds alike seem to have really embraced Earth's most recent solar event.
So much so that even McDonald's decided to give its employees a rare opportunity to step away from their posts and take in the lights out experience. But, you know, with a catch.
Unsurprisingly, Redditors are ripping them to shreds for it.
Today, all anyone can talk about is this eclipse.
Did you catch it?
Please say yes. Also, please tell us you used some kind of eye protection because no one likes a burned retina.
Many employers even gifted employees the rare chance to slip away and enjoy the rare solar event. One of those employers was McDonald's.
But there were some serious strings attached.
One McDonald's restaurant posted a sign saying they'd close for the eclipse so their employees could enjoy it. But only from 1:17pm-1:20pm.
That’s it. Three whole minutes.
Take it or leave it, people.
It didn't take long for Reddit to get ahold of the sign and start giving its ridiculously specificity all of the eye rolls.
Reading this sign does feel like being slapped in the face with a backhanded compliment.
Not a great look, Mickey D’s.
To be fair, this eclipse isn't necessarily a "once in a lifetime" event.
Google says every calendar year offers Earthlings a minimum of four eclipse viewing opportunities. Sure, they don’t all happen along an accessible latitude, but they do exist.
Technicalities aside, Redditors found all sorts of creative ways to continue ripping this McDonald’s eclipse viewing announcement to shreds.
