When Will the Third Business Day Occur?

I signed a contract for pest control on Thursday May 5, 2011. On the paper it says that I can cancel the transaction with no penalties on the third business day after the transaction before midnight. What will be considered the third business day if the company’s business hours are Monday through Friday?

Based on the information you provided, for cancellation purposes, the third business day would have occurred before midnight on May 10, 2011. Thus, you could have canceled the contract anytime between the 5th through the 10th.
