Tragic Tuesdays

leave a comment »

Tuesday to me seems like the day for Rodney Dangerfield. It gets no respect. Monday’s are usually hated because it marks the start of the workweek, Fridays are loved because of it ending the week. Wednesday’s are revered and upheld as ‘hump day’, referring to it being in the middle of the week and thus, working is nearly halfway complete.  Thursday is loved because well, it holds Thanksgiving and is so close to Friday (at which time people will normally state crap like : “Thank god it is nearly Friday!” Heck even the weekend dates of Saturday and Sunday get more respect: Saturdays because it can be renamed ‘hangover day’ or even ‘second weekend party wind day’ for its’ utility as a free day. Sundays are of course for those religious few who still attend church regularly.

Yet Tuesday gets singled out as a crappy day. Think about these major themes as taken from the Wikipedia entry on the day in question:

Black Tuesday, in the United States, refers to Tuesday, October 29, 1929, part of the great Stock Market Crash of 1929. This was the Tuesday after Black Thursday. The crash is said to have marked the start of the Great Depression.

Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of every month when Microsoft releases patches for their products. Some system administrators call this day Black Tuesday.

Shrove Tuesday (also called Mardi Grasfat Tuesday) precedes the first day of Lent in the Western Christian calendar.

Super Tuesday is the day many American states hold their presidential primary elections.

I mean really who wants to celebrate a day where you have to make the decision of voting on what jerks you want to rip you off, or be reminded of the Great Depression? Or even be reminded that the next morning you have to go to church, get dirt stuck to your head and deprive yourself of the things you enjoy (doesn’t life suck enough already?). Finally we all hate our computers and Microsoft for what they call an Operating System. That alone is enough to make me wish we renamed Tuesday as : “It’s not soo fucking bad Day”.

Lastly, this day is associated with Mars, the God of War. How many wars have started on a Tuesday? My guess is not as many as on a Sunday or Friday. Maybe that’s why Tuesday’s suck. The God of War is angry at us for forgetting him and not offering his day the honor of being the day we fuck with each other!
