"Happy hump day" — what a paradoxical phrase, huh?
There really isn’t such thing as a happy hump day or a “good morning” on Wednesdays. The third day of the week is reserved for moans and groans and complaining about what a bad day you’re having. On these days, there is no such thing as an inspirational quote and saying, funny joke, or positive attitude that can turn that frown upside down.
Are you suffering from a case of the Wednesday blues? Don’t sweat it; we’ve all been there. Hump day has a way of draining all the life out of your body and slowing down time until it feels like it doesn’t exist at all. But Wednesdays aren’t all bad! You’ve got Friday just around the corner, and half your week is essentially done. They could be funny and happy and full of excitement — more people just need to think like that.
Of course, it’s not that easy. Funny hump day memes and funny hump day images in your email inbox might help. An inspirational quote and saying might take the edge off a bit too, especially by adding a little hump day humor to the office. But that doesn’t mean Wednesday’s aren’t still rough, though, so here are some hump day quotes to perk you up for the week ahead.
Let’s end the stigma of hump day! Let’s turn this bad day into a good one. Let's not groan when we hear the phrase “good morning” or “happy Wednesday!” Let’s start loving Wednesdays! Ok, we won’t go that far. But hopefully these hump day quotes will help you push through.
