"What will you be doing next Saturday?", is it 7 or 14 days ahead? If I ask you on Sunday night when I leave your mountain cabin, is "next Saturday" 6 or 13 days ahead?
In your example, for me 7 or 6. Even saying Saturday next week (being today saturday or sunday) would still be 7 or 6 days.

In my childhood, Sunday was the last day of the week, making "Saturday next week" 6 days ahead.
Still the same for me.

At some point (maybe 30-35 years ago) it was changed so that Sunday is the first day of the week. Saturday this week is 6 days later,
Then yes you are right.

Anyways... in the moment I think there can be missunderstandings I just ask for confirmation with a date.

- Can you pick me up next saturday night?
- the 8th or the 15th?

This way... it doesn't matter. Big Grin | :-D
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
