When someone asks me something like—
- What have you been doing for the last week?
- What have you been up to for the past couple days?
—what do they mean by that?
Does they mean today and yesterday or yesterday and the day before yesterday? Is it customary to include the actual/current date within the time frame in question or does it mean a week/a couple days not including today?
For example, I was reviewing my Facebook page statistics to see data covering the prior seven days. The dates covered were January 22nd to 28th. However, when looking at similar information in Google Analytics, it covered January 21st to January 27th—excluding the current date.
Which of the two is correct, to include the day or not? Thank you!
