I hate Fridays in Israel.
I hate that it’s a short day. I hate that everything closes at 2 even if Shabbat is at 7. I hate that if you sleep late, then you’ve lost your one day to get things done outside of work. I hate that you can’t actually plan a whole fun day because you can’t go very far before you have to be back. I hate that no matter what, you’re spending half the day cooking and cleaning on your day off.
To be clear on my own hypocrisy, I do keep Shabbat, so I’m being a brat on this rant. I’m also pro-everything closing for Shabbat and living in a country with a Jewish character.
But that doesn’t change the fact that I hate Fridays in Israel.
