Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "I am exhausted!."

Clara: (SLOW) Ich kann nicht mehr! (REGULAR) Ich kann nicht mehr!
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "When is it finally the weekend?."
Clara: Wann ist endlich Wochenende?
Eric: This is a rhetorical question and very common, as everybody loves to talk about looking forward to the weekend. Listen again- "When is it finally the weekend?" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Wann ist endlich Wochenende? (REGULAR) Wann ist endlich Wochenende?
Eric: All together, "I am exhausted! When is it finally the weekend?"
Clara: Ich kann nicht mehr! Wann ist endlich Wochenende?
