Thursday has turned up instead of Friday due to an embarrassing administrative error, latest reports suggest.
The cockup means that millions of workers in the UK may experience fleeting guilt about how little they are doing today, as opposed to gleefully revelling in it, making 'finger-guns' and exclaiming 'That's next week's problem, sunshine!'
'It's very awkward' said Sarah Hayes, an accounts administrator from Hunstanton. 'Thursday is fine of course, but it's not Friday. I've been trying to look enthusiastic but I'm sure Thursday knows I'm disappointed. I feel awful, but what can you do?'
Within the last few hours, Thursday has been spotted vaping in the car park, alone.
'I'm doing my my best' it said, avoiding eye contact and staring into the rain. 'I work with what I've got, you know? Admittedly it's not the weekend tomorrow, but it will be Friday - the day you all seem to love so much. Doesn't that count for anything? I don't know why I bother, I'll be gone in 13 hours or so, then you'll be happy, won't you? WON'T YOU?!'
