Still incorrect even though the correct message is printed

I changed all of the strings in the if statements for today from 'Friday' to 'friday' and when I preview it, the correct message shows but when I check the work, it says that its incorrect so I'm a bit stuck.

var money = 9;
var today = 'Friday'

if ( money >= 100 || today === 'friday' ) {
  alert("Time to go to the theater");    
} else if ( money >= 50 || today === 'friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie and dinner");    
} else if ( money > 10 || today === 'friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie");   
} else if ( today !== 'friday' ) {
  alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out");   
} else {
  alert("This isn't Friday. I need to stay home.");

That's kind of funny but I don't think that is what you are supposed to do. The challenge wants you to modify the logical operators (||, &&, !==, ===) so you are comparing the day and amount.
