Many people are pushing for a four-day work week, which would effectively then make Thursday the new Friday. However, until that happens, Thursday is the day when we anguish that it isn’t yet Friday, but at the same time have hope that the week is almost over. These memes help depict the way people often feel about Thursdays.

1. Lounging Bear

This meme shows a bear lying on its back with one arm raised in the air. He appears to be pretty happy about it being Thursday. The text says, “It’s Thursday: Almost the weekend.”

2. The Office

The show The Office is pretty popular and has quite a few memes based on it. This particular one shows a character standing around in the office saying, “Yeah, if Thursday could be Friday, that’d be great.” Everyone can empathize with wishing the weekend came faster.

3. Computer Issues

Everyone has likely had an experience where they just don’t have the desire to work. In this meme, a man is shown holding a cable, and the text says, “Thursday at work: Mysterious computer issues.” Something tells me those issues aren’t actually very mysterious.

4. A Long Weekend

The best Thursdays are the ones where you don’t have to come to work the next day. The elusive three-day weekend means you might actually get to rest and have some fun. This meme shows a young boy holding up a newspaper, and the tagline says, “Thursday news: Long weekend is coming.”
