Payday is probably the most anticipated day of the month for any employee. The anticipation of getting the reward for our hard work can be like a dopamine shot. There are only 1 in 4 employees in America who turn payday into a shopping spree. Only a quarter of employees said payday is synonymous with paying off debt. As payday approaches, employees naturally feel less anxious about existing financial situation or bills, even if most of income will be gobbled up by rent, cell phone bills, taxes, and Netflix. 

No matter your current financial situation, it’s smart to take a step back, relax, and find some humor in the situation. Here we compiled some payday captions and quotes if you decide to make a post or meme about this date. Payday is an event everyone can relate to whether you’re young or old so this is a subject ripe for social media captions. 

When your favorite date on the calendar is payday!
