Earlier this week, rain and thunderstorms raged in several parts of the kingdom ... and students attempted to take advantage.
The country's Al Taif governorate was one of the areas most affected by the unstable weather conditions. Thus, Saudi students in the region took to Twitter to call on the suspension of their school week.
Tweeting out through the hashtag "suspend school in Al Taif," thousands explained the reasons behind their request. A few of them will certainly make you laugh.

"Suspend school in Al Taif."
Everyone prayed for schools to be shut down
"How do we get to classes?"

A few braced themselves for the commute
Saudi humor was all over this hashtag
Students slowly lost hope on a suspension announcement
"It doesn't look like there's a day off."
"The sad thing is that I am still hopeful"
Others had their minds made
"Whether you suspend classes or not, we're not attending and that's it."
