**39 minutes**. Ask a Question.

I am needing some help. However, all of these posts appear very old. Is anyone still posting? If so, I am looking for usage assistance for the word "next." If today is Thursday and someone says, "I am taking next Friday off" does that mean tomorrow of eight days from today? I have been arguing that the next day in the sequence is tomorrow. I am looking for some proof to help back up my position. Can anyone help? thank you.

Thanks for any help.

puddinellaAneczkaif today is thursday and you want to be off the following day, you say, " I'll be off tomorrow," or " i'll be off this friday." or " I'll be off this coming friday," or "I'll be off on friday."
