  • [poll] Which day do you have off in the week?

    There was a previous thread: https://forum.whitecoatinvestor.com/...y-off-per-week

    I was revisiting it and someone wondered how many people here actually have a regular workweek. So, poll.

    I started taking Mondays off, my kids aren't in school and although I haven't tried it I think I'd prefer it to a broken up workweek. Many people swore by Wednesdays off.

          i have had mondays off since my fourth year of residency. until this year i had only worked about 5 mondays in fifteen plus years.

          this year i was more flexible, and took many wednesdays off instead because my kids have asynchronous learning, aka, nothing. so i take wednesdays off and we go skiing or hiking.

          i prefer Mondays off.

            I work M-F but we get a lot of leave so take random days off occasionally. I’ve tried different days for those random days and prefer Friday to a midweek day or even to a Monday.

                I leave a few hours early on Friday. It was Thursday but I am not the lowest man on the totem pole anymore!

                  Didn't vote. A more applicable poll would be: which months do you prefer taking off?

                    I have to do tuesdays for family reasons, but would prefer mid week anyway (t,w or th). It helps break up the monotomy of things, I'm always a day or two away from a day off, and you can accomplish more real life stuff (lawyers/drs appt, banking, etc) in the middle of the week than on M or F since everyone else is trying to take those days off.

                      Wednesday off, Friday half day. Very happy with the set up.

                        Wednesdays off break the week up nicely. I find that I get bored by Sunday afternoon so a 3 day weekend* wouldn’t be as productive or enjoyable for me. ( *covid time in NY state- so it may be different in the summer or during normal times)

                            I have senior partners who take Fridays off in the summer.

                              I take random Fridays off throughout the year when I have trouble filling my schedule
