My boss is arranging a meeting with no specific date and I want to say to him that I'm available any day from Monday-Friday except Tuesday. But I want to sound gramatically correct.

So I was thinking of saying "I'm available on weekday but sadly not on Tuesdays." But this doesn't sound correct to me, what do you think?

    Any weekday but Tuesday.

    Basically you are already there any day from Monday through Friday except Tuesday. That is grammatical, clear, and succinct. Mar 20 '18 at 1:17
  • @Jeff: Mine is grammatical, clear, and more succinct. Four words and all the facts are in. ^_^

  • @Robusto I can see that it may seem that I was commenting on your comment. I was not. I was pointing out that the OP already had a formulation that was grammatical, etc except for the odd locution from Monday-Friday. Thank you for the opportunity to clarify what I was addressing.

Since you are bounding it by the work week, you could say

Any weekday but Tuesday.

If you wanted to include Sunday and Saturday, you could say

Any day but Tuesday.

but since it is your boss, it would probably be understood to mean the work week.

You could also say

All week except for Tuesday.

or

I’m not available on Tuesday, but any other day is fine.
