I agree with both the Alpaca Guy and with Oatmeal....
I don't know how so many people around here can afford to go downtown every weekend. I guess I'm just a money saver at heart. Plus, I actually feel 'out of my element' when I am around too many people. Sometimes even going to K-mart can cause me to feel dizzy and out of sorts. Does anybody else have that problem?
Insted, I spent my Saturday evening going to a run so I guess you could say I don't have much of an intresting life either.
I loved it when I had jobs that allowed me to work on the weekends. I specifically took weekend shifts so that my days off were in the middle of the week. That way, when I went out to do things during the day or night, there was hardly any people about. Even now I almost never go to the movies on the weekend. There are less people and less yahoos during the week. Its just a creation of our culture that has led us to believe that the weekend is the only time to go out and have fun.
The same goes for one-day holidays. Most people I know really want to have those days off. When I had the choice of what days I worked, I always worked on holidays. That way I got paid time and half for working a day, that when you got right down to it, was no different than any other day of the week.
I am exactly the same way shamus. However, as society is today, a lot of people work out of the office, so there is much more traffic on the streets than years ago... even during the week. But yes, I like weekdays off allows me to get things done faster errand wise, and less people at the mall and movies ect.
