n case you're living under a rock, a solar eclipse is heading our way on Monday, August 21. This solar eclipse is a particularly big deal because the total eclipse will be viewable across the contiguous United States in a path reaching from Oregon to Georgia.
Needless to say, people are pretty psyched to see the moon block out the sun for a few minutes. There are viewing parties all over the place, and many people are traveling to make sure they'll be in the eclipse's path at just the right time.
The Perot Museum in Dallas, TX is holding a free eclipse viewing party on the 21st between noon and 2 p.m, CDT. But that time didn't work for one clueless mom, so she asked the museum very politely to reschedule the sun.
Obviously, the Internet piled on this mistake in a glorious fashion.
The comment has since been deleted, but not before the nimble ninjas of the Internet snagged a screenshot.
“Most kids go back to school that day,” the poor mom’s comment read. “Can it be done on the weekend?”
The eclipse? No, sorry. It can’t be “done on the weekend.”
“Did this lady just ask to reschedule the sun?” one shocked commenter wrote.
Some came to this woman's defense.
Sure, she might not have realized the Solar Eclipse Party was a party to look at the solar eclipse, but still…
It’s way more fun to make fun of her than to sympathize with her error. The Internet obliged.
Many started asking the museum (jokingly) to postpone the eclipse to a time that was convenient for them.
Seriously, can’t these celestial bodies just like, hold up for one more day?
Everyone deserves a chance to view the eclipse.
Or why not move it to Europe?
They’ll be a nice evening breeze.
Plus, the food there is A+.
Don’t see why this would be a big deal!
Wait, there's an eclipse happening in NYC too?
The sun and the moon seem to have double-booked themselves.
The only logical solution is for one of them to visit New York and one of them to visit Dallas. It’s only fair.
