This is not just a Poll

This is a "Lets-End-This-Argument-Once-And-For-All" Poll.

Its all about what one means by "this week" and "next week". One of us (I wont say which, so as not to skew the voting) thinks that "next Saturday" means the Saturday that is coming up next, (e.g. in two days). The other thinks that "next Saturday" means the one that is in the week after the current week.

This argument has been going on for about two years. We've vox-popped all our friends and the votes are split. We need an international perspective.

We both think the other's perspective is completely fucked.

Its up to all of you to save our marriage. So please, vote wisely!

  1. Ah... no help here... Attila and I disagree... surprised???

    He thinks 'next Saturday' means the Saturday of the following week... because he thinks one would say 'this Saturday' if they were meaning the next Saturday to arrive.

    I think 'next Saturday' means the next Saturday to arrive... because otherwise one would say, "the Saturday after next"...

    So... even in Canadada we're confused on the matter.

  4. What Manuela said, except I'm Attila and M is Manuela in our ongoing spat. So I fear the international perspective is probably not going to help much...

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
