Finished and Complete
No English dictionary has been able to explain adequately the difference between the two words.
In a recently held linguistic competition held in London, England
attended by the best in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese man
from Bachelors Adventure, was the clear winner with a standing ovation
lasting over 5 minutes.
Here is his answer which made him
receive an invitation to dine with the Queen who decided to call him
after the contest. He won a trip to travel the world in style and a case
of 25 year old Eldorado rum for his answer.
His final question
was this.... How to explain the difference between COMPLETE and
FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand. Some people say there is
no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED .
Here is his astute answer ....
When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. And when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!
