I'll explain. Let's say you want to make plans for Saturday the 22nd. Today is Monday, the 17th. Would you say, "I'll see you this Saturday" or "I'll see you next Saturday?"
The answer is obvious to me...but apparently, it is not to everyone. And by everyone, I mean my husband...and many others. He thinks that using "next Saturday" is ok in this instance.
I maintain that it is not. In my mind, "next Saturday" means the following Saturday...the Saturday of next week. This Saturday means, well THIS SATURDAY...I'm not sure how much clearer that can be.
It turns out, my husband is not the only person who speaks in this ridiculously wrong manner. I've had several conversations in which the Saturday I am talking about and the Saturday the other person is talking about are not one and the same. Now, it's entirely possible that the person with whom I'm speaking is just trying to purposely get out of making plans with me. That, I get.
My point is, that it seems we have come to an impasse. Or have we?
You best believe I googled that shit moments after having this spirited (read: buzzed) debate with my husband. And it turns out, I'm right. Well, mostly.
Here's a response I found from a website called English Stack Exchange:
Seriously, though- what are your thoughts? Leave a comment below as I would love to know what is the popular opinion. Try to change my mind. You won't...but you can try.
P.S.- If you were like, "Did that bitch buy a selfie stick just to promote her lame blog?"
The answer is, "she as shit sure did." But, I'm not special. you can get one too.
