I was over at Coffee Lady's blog this morning and her post got me thinking about the days of the week.
I have worked a lot of customer service jobs. A lot.
My first full-time job was being a cashier in an office lunchroom (lunch lady!). I got to see my friend Adam everyday because he was a security guard at the front desk. After a while we noticed all of the workers would have the same responses to the dreaded yet expected question, "how are you?"
Here are the responses:
Monday "Ugh. It's Monday." or "Pretty good for a Monday, I guess."
Wednesday "It's hump day!" or "We're halfway through the week!"
Thursday "Well, tomorrow's Friday!"
Friday "It's Friday! The weekend's almost here!"
Day after day. Week after week. Person after person.
The only day nothing was said was Tuesday. So when we'd see each other on Tuesday mornings we'd look at each other and say "It's Tuesday" and crack up.
Adam, his wife, and I would go to Denny's every Tuesday as a celebration of sorts.
Now I am hungry for a Moons Over My Hammy.
