To A Better Day Off
Is it better to have Friday off or Monday off? Both are good, of course, but I prefer Friday. It makes Thursday seem like another Friday, and by Wednesday that week is pretty much a wash. Having a Monday holiday like Labor Day makes me feel like I get a Sunday that extends over 48 hours. Sure, everyone skips lunch and leaves at 3pm on that Friday before the holiday, but all you do with those extra few hours of free time is sit in traffic. I'm going to suggest that we move Labor Day to the last Friday of August, and celebrate the social and economic achievements of America with one last long weekend of BBQs where nothing gets done (and everyone can still leave at 3pm the day before).
