‘Mayor, suspend na please’: Netizens’ hilarious reaction to class suspensions
MANILA, Philippines – It’s that time of the year again: The rainy season is bringing elusive class suspensions.
For some, they’re necessary disruptions to ensure the safety of students during bad weather conditions. For many students, however, they’re bonus days off from schoolwork and assignments.
So when Typhoon Gorio (Nesat) passed by the country, causing the monsoon rain to become heavier than usual, the internet was abuzz with one question: ‘May pasok ba?’ (Is there class tomorrow?)
Some students took to social media to beg for suspensions of classes.

The announcement came a little too late for this unfortunate soul:

But some are not too happy about the suspensions:
