Samoa Drops Friday From Calendar

Samoa Drops Friday From Calendar
By Alan Boyle

Just this once, Samoa is making Dec. 30 disappear.

It's the key step in the Pacific island nation's plan to move from the eastern to the western side of the International Date Line and mesh its work week with two of its primary trading partners, New Zealand and Australia. The New Zealand territory of Tokelau is making the switch as well.
"In doing business with New Zealand and Australia, we're losing out on two working days a week," Stuff.co.nz quoted Samoan Prime Minister Tuila'epa Sailele as saying. "While it's Friday here, it's Saturday in New Zealand, and when we're at church Sunday, they're already conducting business in Sydney and Brisbane."
Samoa will go directly from 11:59 p.m. Thursday, through midnight to 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

Makes one think of the "unless their days are shortened, none would survive" quote from Matthew 24:22.

Oh man, of all the days to lose why a Friday. People need their Fridays to have something to look forward to. Now they will have to wait a whole week for Friday to come around again.

Hilarious but true
Why not Monday--who's gonna miss a Monday? Sounds like typical government overthink....

Even better:

A broken clock shows the correct time twice a day. Except in Somoa this coming Friday.

The human measurment of time is just that, a measure. We have no effect on time itself.

Our news this morning said that those expected to work on this Friday, but won't, because it isn't there this week, will still get paid for the deleted day
