Is it “this weekend” or “next weekend”?

If someone told you that they have plans “next weekend,” does that mean this COMING weekend or the weekend after? According to a survey, people don’t really agree on what “next weekend” means, especially in the first few days of the week. People were asked whether they’d say “this weekend” or “next weekend” if they were talking about the coming weekend on a Monday or Tuesday. Only 40% said it’s “this weekend”, while 56% said “next weekend” 4% weren’t sure. Younger people were more likely to say “this weekend” and people over 50 were more likely to say “next weekend.” One thing we DO agree on? Only 7% refer to this past weekend as “this” weekend.  91% say that’s already “last” weekend.
