Landlord: Why are you leaving? You've just stayed for a week.
Tenant: A week too long. There are two many rules in this flat. You don't like noise, so I rarely listen to music...
What do you mean by "a week too long"? Thanks!
Does he mean "a week IS too long"? Is it common for native speakers to omit the verb BE in colloquial English? Thanks!
If he meant "one week is too long", this would then indicate that maybe he should have stayed for just four or five days. But that's not what he meant.
No, it's not common to omit the verb "be" in colloquial English.

He feels a week is too long.
