    It is a matter of reference. The "next" person in line is in reference to the last person who was called or served.

    "Next Friday" (if not referencing all the days of the week) is in reference to this Friday. It's trickier the further back you go. If someone asked me on Saturday what I am doing "next Friday", I would think he's talking about the Friday of "next" week.

    IOW, I am inconsistent.
    As long as you're consistent, I can live with that.

              During the summer of 1963, Lyndon Baines Johnson was quoted as saying something like, he's your president (referring to Kennedy), if you disagree with him, wait until next November, then you kill him. He was referring to election day, 1964. But some conspiracy theorists take that as implying he knew that Kennedy would be murdered in November, 1963.

                "This Friday" is Friday of this week.

                "Next Friday" is Friday of next week.

                  If it is Saturday and you say "Next Week" are you talking about tomorrow or the week after that?

                    So, if it's Saturday, then "this Friday" is yesterday?
                    Cause Sunday* starts "the next week".

                    *or Monday, depending on how your "first day of the week" is set on your calendar.

                      And this is why next xxxday should always refer to the next one in line coming up. Avoids all this confusion.

                        Or just say "Friday the 13th" (or whatever the actual date is) - and now this thread will derail to Friday the 13th nonsense!
