You don't have a semi-colon after your today variable.

thank you for the catch but still not working. this is what im getting back:

Bummer! Hmm. Looks like there is at least one logical OR operator -- that's the || symbols. Those test if just one of the conditions are true

I think you want to check if today is === "Friday" because the last statement is saying "This isn't Friday, I need to stay home." So change all of your !== to ===. Also change all of your || to && because you need the money AND you need it to be Friday.
