Today was my second Wednesday. For those of you that don’t understand this concept. I do not work the average 9-5 Monday – Friday type of job. I actually do not really think this is the norm anymore. Yet……….just in case there are those of you that don’t get it. My days off are not steady. I do not always get the same ones. In fact it is rather refreshing for me if I get the same two days off for three weeks in a row. I have always worked these kind of jobs. It may be your Monday, it can be someone else’s Tuesday, and a third party’s Friday. We will even use this as conversation starter. To me it doesn’t matter. I would love some consistency. Same days every week, but it is no big deal. Anyway, this week I have Wednesday, Thursday off. last week I had Tuesday and Wednesday. Since I am working six days until my next days off. I have two Wednesdays. Which actually makes perfect sense. Simply because the idea of having two Mondays would totally suck. Some one would ask you…”hey whats this your Tuesday?” and your reply would be a depressing sounding “No, it is my second Monday.” Your mood would shoot downhill form there. One of those a week is plenty. You also can’t have two Fridays because that wouldn’t make any sense either. If you go into work after telling everyone the day before it was your Friday. Well the question parade would soon begin. You may know the ones. Hey, I thought you were off today. What are you doing here? or the ever famous one worder (I just made that word up. I made them add it to my dictionary just in case.) Overtime? Then you have to explain to everyone why you are there. So…. it is much easier to tell everyone it is your second Wednesday.
What day is it for you? Whatever day it is, I hope things are going well.
