The three days will not include the weekend or public holidays, but if you need more time, you should file a memorandum which explains the problems, and when you can file a proper response. The time will start from when you received the order, so you should have time to prepare something over the weekend. If you don't have access to a printer you can handwrite the response. Public libraries often have printers and could ask to use those, or try to find another printer if you don't want to hand write
