Users around the world can no longer access Google Calendar, with people reporting an error message when they try to access the app and some sharing an overwhelming feeling that they should go home for the day.

“Google Calendar is currently experiencing a service disruption,” said Google’s G Suite Twitter account, instructing users to follow updates through a service Web page. Google directed The Washington Post to the same page, which states: “We’re investigating reports of an issue with Google Calendar. We will provide more information shortly. The affected users are unable to access Google Calendar.”

The outage has become an event on social media. Twitter created an event page with funny GIFs symbolizing the distress many people are experiencing.

If they didn’t store so much of their private data with one company, this wouldn’t be a problem.
