    Did You Know That There Are Actually Two Mondays In The Week?

    Any other day of the week > Tuesday.

    🚨 THIS IS A PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨 Tuesday is the worst day of the week and whether you like it or not, that's a goddamn fact.

    And I, Benjamin Henry, am here to break it down for you because it's important that somebody calls Tuesday out for the liar that it is.

    So the actual ranking of the days of the week goes like this: Saturday > Friday > Sunday > Thursday > Wednesday > Monday > Tuesday.

    E!

    The order of Sunday and Thursday are up for debate but we'll get to that in a minute.

    So obviously Saturday is the best day of the week. It's the weekend, you can sleep in, you can get shit done, you can stay up late, you can go out partying.

    Basically the world is your oyster. God bless Saturday.

    Friday is a close second. Like, it's technically kind of the weekend and nobody reeeeeally does work on a Friday because that would be barbaric.

    Everybody is excited and full of hope for the weekend and you get a new lease of life. But it's still a work day, no matter how little work you actually do, so that's why it's not first.

    Now here's where it gets interesting, because everybody THINKS that Monday is the worst day of the week.

    You can understand why. Back to work, everybody's tired, nobody's happy, Monday blues, so on and so forth.

    But Monday doesn't pretend to be anything other than Monday.

    Buena Vista Pictures

    Everybody knows what's coming on Monday and because you know it's coming, you can kind of prepare for it (although you never do feel quite prepared for a Monday because Mondays suck).

    BUT IT'S TUESDAY THAT'S THE REAL SNAKE OF THE WEEK.

    That's right, Tuesday, I'm calling you out.

    Monday you can reminisce about how good the weekend was. Tuesday, the weekend is well and truly over.

    NBC

    And Tuesday doesn't feel any closer to the weekend than Monday does.

    TBS

    You're sooooo far away from Friday that it's actually devastating when you stop and think about it.

    Tuesday's like "Well, I'm not Monday" but it's actually fucking lying because Tuesday is the second Monday you didn't ask for.

    It's the bitch that kicks you when you're down. If Tuesday were a person, it would be a cunt.

    Now Wednesday is also low-key snakey. It's basically that annoyingly optimistic person who's like, "Aww guys, cheer up, we're halfway to the weekend."

    Bravo

    But Wednesday is still mid-week and therefore is only slightly better than Monday. If Wednesday was a person, they'd have a "Live, Laugh, Love" sign hanging in their bedroom.

    A fair debate is the order of Thursday and Sunday. The correct order is actually Sunday > Thursday.

    Paramount

    It's an easy mistake to make. People get prematurely excited on a Thursday, forgetting they actually still have work the next day. And yes, there's nothing worse than the feeling on a Sunday evening when you realise you're going back to work the next day, but Sunday is still the weekend so you can't really be mad at it.

    REMINDER: The correct order is Saturday > Friday > Sunday > Thursday > Wednesday > Monday > Tuesday.

    NBC

    It's time to let Monday live without this unnecessary hate.

    So there you have it: a definitive ranking of the days of the week. Obviously this is 1,000% correct but in the interests of fairness and free speech, you can have your say.
