From intergalactic civil war to losing your car keys yet again, there’s no problem too big or small that we can’t blame on the Dark Side. Mercury being in retrograde is such a 2010s excuse, am I right?

Folks are taking to Twitter to express what they are blaming the Dark Side for. Let’s take a look:
