    No...otherwise they would have said: "tomorrow."

    Next means: Not this Friday...but, "next" Friday.

    They mean a week from tomorrow.

    If they meant tomorrow, today being Thursday - and that is understood by all concerned - they should say "tomorrow," and not "Friday." To say that would be correct if it were only Wednesday, for example.

    No. They mean the Friday in the next week. The Friday in this week is referred to as this Friday.

    Who knows what they were thinking. They should have said tomorrow if they meant "this Friday" coming. They should have said the Friday after next if they meant next week. Ask them if you can.

    Next friday means the friday next week.

    THIS friday would refer to the friday of the current week.
