    Which day would you add to the weekend?

    Just curious...

    Let's say the government mandated a change from the current standard work week to a 4-day work week. Which day would you rather have added to the weekend: Friday or Monday?

    Why is one preferable to the other?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I say Friday. Usually if I take a day off during the week, thats the day that it is. No real reason why, just cause

    Friday.

    More fun things happen on Thursday night than they do Sundays.

    Mondays are just evil.

    I would choose Monday, because room rates are cheaper for a sun/mon and thigs are less crowded on a monday.

    ^ But ... if Monday was part of the weekend, the rates wouldn't be so low anymore.

    I voted Friday because if it was Monday, Disneyland would be as busy on a Sunday as it is on Saturday.

    Monday, because I am so busy on Sundays. It would be nice to have a catch up day before I started the week again.

    I almost said Monday... but there are so many I HATE MONDAY t-shirts in the world, I didn't want them to have to get rid of those. It would be a whole new reason to TGIF.

    yeah, but the four day work week doesn't really work like the poll suggests. My company has sites in different states and the employees in those states have a 4 day work week. The third day rotates to different week days and once a month they get a three day weekend. Businesses still stay open the 5 days during the week.

    I say Monday, although it wouldnt matter. It would still mean more work for the other days. Wednesday might be nice to have off, break the week up a little.

    Monday. Fridays are already fun, might as well relax on Monday, and suck the fun out of Tuesday.

    I vote for Wednesday - then I would only have to work two days in a row maximum!

    I would add Monday to the weekend.......because it's Monday. There's a certain 'excitement' that comes with Friday and I enjoy that aspect of it.

    Since there will be just as much work to be done, if not moreso, people would just have to work ten or 12 hours a day on the four days they do work, right? People who work 12 hour shifts now in seven-day operations like hospitals get rotating days off...

    As per the question, I'd take Monday.

    Barry's right.

    One of the salons I used to work in we had four day weeks where each day was 10 hours. I prefered having the "Wednesday" (I put quotes because I never had Saturday and Sunday off as my "weekend") because three days means I veg out for those three days. But if I have ONE day to do something, I do housework and other chores/errands on that day. So my weekend isn't ruined.

    Wednesday! I think it would be great to work for two days, get a day off, work two more and then get TWO days off! I'd love that!
