Default SS Relationship Automatic Scheduling Problem


I'm establishing a start to start relationship between two tasks on MS Project. I'm working with a 6day/wk schedule (mon-fri).

Task A starts on a thursday

Im setting another task (task B) to have a SS relationship with task A + 4 days. Therefore, I would expect task B to begin on Monday. Task B has a duration of 2 days.

Instead of setting task A to begin on a Monday, project is auto scheduling task A to begin on saturday and to end on tuesday. Why would this push back the end date of task A? This is ruining the whole point of having a SS relationship.

In fact if I set task A have its predecessor as (TaskB)SS+3days, it also starts on Saturday.

I hope I have explained this problem enough so that it makes sense. How can I fix this?
