One of the little things I find irritating about casino workers is the tendency to say things like "this is my weekend" or "Thursday is my Friday". They don't say "I'm off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays", they say "Tuesday and Wednesday is my weekend".

Why? Weekend is a perfectly good concept whether you work weekends or not. Your kids don't go to school on weekends. You don't see the dentist on a weekend. Here in Cushing, Oklahoma, the local movie theatre doesn't have matinees on weekdays.

I've worked in restaurants and bars and I've never noticed people people confusing their days off with the term weekend except in the casino industry. Why is that?
