Is it week days or business days?

Waiting to hear back from a publisher is stressful!

I always wonder when they say they'll notify you of acceptance within 3-8 weeks if that means I should count all the week days (Monday thru Sunday) or if they mean business days (Monday thru Friday).

And when they say 3-8 weeks they always mean 8 (Eight!) weeks before you hear back.

So if I'm going by week days, that means I should hear from them by Friday.  But if they are using business days where five days only really means five out of seven days then it might be another week and a half before I actually know if they've accepted my short story!

Oh well - what I should really be doing is working on my next submission and just put this fretting completely out of my head!
