Mum asks if solar eclipse can be rescheduled as it conflicts with 'back to school' week

The total solar eclipse of 2017 will happen on 21st August 2017 and the US is getting ready for a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle.

People around the country are organising parties and events to celebrate the rare event  including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas which is holding a party on the day. Unfortunately, one mother has found out that 21st August isn't going to be good for her as its the week her kids go back to school so she's asked the museum to reschedule.

She wrote to the museum asking:

“Most kids go back to school that day. Can it be done on the weekend?”

The Internet lost its shit when they saw her suggestion online.  The mum has since deleted her comment but someone managed to screenshot it along with the hilarious replies from other people.

That was a total ‘Oh mum!’ moment.
