When we were younger, we had to call a hotline or check a website to find out whether we had a snow day the next day. Or maybe, the principal announced it on the school's PA system.

Last week, students in Georgia's Cherokee County School District were pretty sure they'd get a day off from school when the surrounding districts gave their kids a weather-related break, as PopSugar reported. The answer was: No snow day for you, kids. So they tweeted, and tweeted, and tweeted, clamoring for a day of sledding and hot chocolate (okay, of social media). They didn't get the typical canned response. Whoever runs the school district's Twitter account is a brilliant social media manager and sent back some delightfully sassy replies. Today, schools in the Atlanta-area county are closed. The kids finally got their snow-day prayers answered (reportedly because of road conditions, but we'd like to think the tweets tipped the scales).

The parents: "For the love of god, please send them back to school. Oh, and please pay my lengthy wine bill. I can't anymore." Again, the school district wasn't having it. (Sorry kids, you still have school tomorrow.) These responses are pure gold:
