# Hello, I am confused with days calculation, can someone clarify this for me? [closed]

for example

If you had shower on Monday(2.1.2017 18:00), then you had no shower on Tuesday (3.1.2017 18:00) and then had shower again on Wednesday (4.1.2017 18:00)

And it is still 4.1.2017 on-going day meaning the day is not over yet.

Would you say you have not showered for two or one day?

Before you read this, tell me what you would say and after that read this:

In my country, we would say I have not showered for one day. Because I showered on Monday so no count, Wednesday showered too, so no count as well. Tuesday =no shower so count. You get my idea?

But in reality you have not showered for two days...

So what do you think? Can you explain to me how can I figure out the last time the person has for example uploaded a video if he tells me he has not uploaded a video for 3 days already?

Let's say today is 5.1.2017 what day was last time he uploaded video?

• You haven't showered in two days, so there's been one day where you didn't shower. Assuming it's not 18:00 yet, that is. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Jan 2 '17 at 23:49
• Since it’s Wednesday and I showered today, I would not be talking about not having showered at all. As soon as i’ve showered the count starts over. – Jim Jan 2 '17 at 23:53
• I’d say he didn’t upload a video today (1), yesterday (2), or the day before (3). He must have uploaded one on 2.1.2017. – Jim Jan 2 '17 at 23:56
• Keep in mind that there are no hard and fast rules about how one counts "days" in such circumstances. There will be variations depending on the context (and the author). – Hot Licks Jan 3 '17 at 0:20
• You should eliminate the potential ambiguity and say "I haven't made a payment since Monday." As an aside, I think you should also see if English Language Learners is a Stack Exchange that you might want to visit. – J.R. Jan 3 '17 at 1:03
