For this challenge, you need to modify the comparison and/or logic operators so the tests match the messages that are given. For example:

} else if ( today !== 'Friday' ) {
  alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out."); 

In this portion, you can see that the message declares "It's Friday...", but the test operator is checking if today is not Friday.

Every test will have at least one operator (or more) that needs fixing.

I'm still not undering standing pleases can some one work it out with me. so i can understand better

Let's start by looking at just the example I gave, what would you change in the test to make it go with that message?
