I can't stand the rain when I am on vacation.
Is it correct if I say: "six days of non-stop rain - what a bother/fuss".
Thanks.

    Six days of non-stop rain:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    what a bother/fuss:thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown: (unless you want to sound like a dear little old lady).


    Oops - sorry - perhaps you are a dear little old lady?

    Whether for dear little old ladies or anyone else, two neutral alternatives are "What a pain"* or "How annoying!".

    *Originally a euphemism for "pain in the ass/arse" but no longer understood as such
