Where did the saying "it's hump day" get it's origin?
I have always heard people refer to Wednesday as hump day. I know it's the middle of the working week but why is it considered the day you work extra hard? Before I retired, I had to do that every day!
'The term alludes to the fact that Wednesday is the middle of the work week, meaning that one has made it "over the hump" towards the weekend.'
Maybe people work extra hard because they are motivated since they are getting closer to the weekend. My place uses that term as well. Not really sure when it originated
