    17 Funny Tweets About Mercury Retrograde For People Who Don't Know What It Means, But Blame It For Everything

    "This is the funniest Mercury retrograde of my life, and I haven't laughed once."

    Ugh. Mercury Retrograde (a time when communication is bad and frustration is high) is back! Now we are once again using it as an excuse for our lives being in absolute shambles.

    From September 9 to October 1, people like me are using this astrological "retrograde" to blame the planet that rules all forms of communication for our relationship woes and daily struggles.

    Good thing some people on Twitter have a great sense of dark humor to help us laugh-cry our way out of this funky season.
