I have a question for everyone to help settle a small dispute with someone. If today is Tuesday, and you want to tell someone the event is 3 days later on Friday, do you say “the event is this Friday” or “the event is next Friday”?

I believe that “this” is for the next occurrence of that day and “next” is for the following weeks occurrence of that day. The person I was talking to believes that “next” refers to the next time that day happens.

What say you?
