    he came on something called Friday (horse, car or whatever), also he stayed 3 days there. I wonder if it was a nice place.

    The man’s mode of transport is named Friday, he arrives on the Saturday and then on the Monday (sometime less than or equal to 48hrs after he arrived) decides to stay another 48hrs. He leaves sometime on the Weds, 48hrs after he decided to stay on the Mon. All in all he has not stayed for longer than 96hrs.

    He left the same Friday he came. Friday is not part of the weekend its a weekday. Therefore he stayed on Saturda,Sunday,Monday,and Tuesday.

    Friday was a peculiar native american opiate used by many cowboys to dull the pain of their rough and pointless lives.
    When the riddle says he was “on Friday”, it is referring to the drug-induced haze he was ingulfed in after his 96 hour bender.
