First, let’s eliminate Saturday for obvious reasons. And Sunday? Well, sometimes Sunday night can be a bummer but we really can’t penalize a full day off for just a few hours at the end, can we?
Friday is pretty cool and Thursday brings the promise of Friday, so those two are off the list.
This leaves us with Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday is the middle of the week—Hump Day—which signals that you have somehow survived the first half. In my opinion, this places Wednesday in the “good pile” with both Thursday and Friday. Half-full days, if you will.
Now we are down to Monday and Tuesday. Monday gets all the hype for being crappy, first day of the work week, etc. But it does have a certain notoriety, celebrated in countless laments, jokes and even songs.
Tuesday on the other hand, is also at the beginning of the work week but lacks that level of celebrity. It. Just. Plain. Sucks. What does Tuesday have going for it? That it’s isn’t Monday? Right, and Stalin wasn’t Hitler. The promise of Wednesday? Woo hoo, tomorrow is the middle of the week.
No, Tuesday exists in its own lonely little hell that it agrees to share with us every 7 days or so thanks a lot screw you Tuesday.
