Need help figuring out what day i can file default during a UD case

Is this in California? What day was it served?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
california. I served it this last tuesday

Because of the long weekend, the defendant has until Tuesday to file an Answer. So the earliest you can file for default is Wednesday.

Do you have any other questions?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I dont understand how its wednesday. Its 5 days and file on the 6th. Tuesday to wednesday is 8 days minus one holiday day. So thats 7 days still

-The fifth day is a weekend. Since they cannot file over the weekend, they get to file on the next day the Court is open.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Right, but weekends count in the 5days

Yes, but that makes Sunday the fifth day. When the fifth day falls on a day the court is closed, they get until the next court day to file.
