Friday is the end of the week for most people. In the same way that Monday can conjure up a feeling of dread, Friday is a day to look forward to, and a lot of Friday memes reflect that. It can also represent a source of frustration and jealousy for people who have to work weekends, but there are memes for that as well.

What Do Friday Memes Mean?

The idea of Friday as a transition from the work week to the week end is something that virtually everyone understands. Even though not everyone works in a traditional Monday to Friday job, the intent of Friday memes is still able to get across due to that common understanding.

Most Friday memes are meant to express a sense of anticipation, relief, or joy. However, some Friday memes convey frustration, due to the fact that some people actually have to work on Saturday and Sunday. A lot of Friday memes also make some type of joke based around waiting for Friday, blowing off work on Friday, or escaping from work at the end of the day.

How Are Friday Memes Used?

Friday memes are typically used on, or immediately before, Friday, in a very literal sense. Some of these memes can also be used a metaphors for any situation that involves anticipation, relief, or joy that something has happened, or frustration at not being able to join in with everyone else.

Examples of Friday Memes:

Example #1:
Image: A sad looking puppy
Text line one: "The moment you realize"
Text line two: "It's still not Friday"
Meaning: The user of the meme is disappointed or frustrated that it still isn't Friday. The week probably feels like it's really dragging along.

Example #2:
Image: Dwight from The Office.
Text line one: "Friday is just around the corner."
Text line two: "False. Chronological distance can not be measured geometrically."
Meaning: This is an in-joke that a fan of The Office might share when it's almost Friday, or in response to someone else making a pedantic statement.

Example #3:
Image: A zebra clinging to the neck of a giraffe.
Text: "Can you see Friday yet?"
Meaning: This is just a humorous image that someone might share if they're really done with the week and want it to end.
