Solar Eclipse Hell: My Children Are Going to Have to Look Directly at the Sun Now!



From ThoseWhoWander-111, Tales From Retail:

God save me from the calls about the solar glasses. We've been out for a month now and not getting any more. I'm starting a petition to launch the sun into the sun.

A woman came in hauling two kids and a baby.

Her: Hi excuse me where are your solar glasses? The ones for the eclipse?

Me: Oh, I'm sorry, we're out but-

Her: Oh my GOD are you SERIOUS right now?! All your stores are out! What are we supposed to do! I guess they'll just look directly at the sun.

Me: Well, there are still glasses available at X, Y, and maybe Z. I can call around for you?

Her: No. No! You know what we'll just watch it without them!

I had a solution. I suggested it. I don't know anymore people are nuts about this eclipse thing. I can't wait until it's over.








I await the first reports of lawsuits for defective glasses you gave out, that caused eye damage. Very stupid promo for a company to have with all that liability.


I fielded no less than 40 phone calls last night asking for the glasses.

The only thing is that I work the overnight shift in a grocery store. People were calling a grocery store after midnight to find out if we had any glasses in stock.

I work in a hardware store. We're sold out of welding masks. Note: Welding masks do not really provide an adequate level of protection. Note 2: We are at least 1,000 miles from the path of totality.

The news decided to air a message, there are no glasses for sale in the entire province. Shame, I wouldn't mind watching, but oh well.


It's over now, I missed it, IDK how far out of the path of totality I was, but I know I would've gotten a decent partial view. Oh well. Work comes first. Also, I know there were some end of the world loonies about for the eclipse. I swear, every astrological phenomenon brings them out of the woodwork. I still remember the Hallebop Comet ones


I missed it too. but where I am was waaay out on the edge anyway, and I didn't have any glasses. And the grapes were probably sour anyway.
