They don’t call it Hump Day for nothing.
There are two types of people in the world: People who welcome Wednesdays with open arms and those who side-eye the day. There’s really no inbetween.
Since 1965, people have referred Wednesday as “Hump Day” because it officially marks the middle of the week and that the weekend is nearing. Once you get to Hump Day, the week only seems to get better because the freedom of Friday feels so much closer. You just have to make it to the weekend so you don’t have to worry about your co-worker putting your stapler into jello or respond to the email labeled as “urgent” from Tuesday.
Wednesdays can put people through a lot of different emotions. For some, the week will feel like it’s going fast but for others, it’s going to feel like it’s dragging.
Congrats, you got through the first half of the week! But now you have to get through the rest of it, you feel me? It’s a love-hate relationship.
Wednesdays also mark the return of cult-favorite shows like Riverdale so you can count on Jughead to accompany you as you grub on your dinner plate. Or better yet, you can reward yourself to some Happy Hour drinks and mentally prepare yourself for the next two days.
No matter what field you work in or how your week is going, everyone experiences the same emotions on a Wednesday. It might be at different times of the day, but you’ll definitely feel the pain or happiness of Wednesday (or both).
Here are 25 memes that perfectly describe your emotions on Hump Day to get you through the day.
