"Next Saturday"

Because careless language nearly led to a serious scheduling snafu, I'm curious to see how people understand the phrase "next Saturday." Let's say it's Wednesday, February 9th, and I tell you that we are going to do something "Next Saturday." What date do you understand me to mean?

Poll #435278 Next Saturday

On Wednesday, February 9th, what day is meant by "Next Saturday"?

Saturday, the 12th

Saturday, the 19th

That's too ambigous: I'd ask for clarification
2(33.3%)
