Workdays 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. only with a parking ticket: Anyone looking for a parking space knows that. But what does workdays actually mean? Do I have to take a parking ticket on Saturday too?

Is Saturday always a working day?

To make the whole thing a little more complicated: Saturday is not a working day when it comes to deadlines. For example, if the rental agreement states that the rent must be transferred on the third working day of the month, Saturday does not count, because banks usually do not work on that day.
