-What's the difference between completed and finished?
During a recent linguistic conference in London, Samsunder
Balgobin, a linguist from Guyana, was asked about the
difference between the words 'completed' and 'finished'.
The questions was this, "Some say there is no difference
between 'complete' and 'finished'. Please explain the
difference in a way that's easy to understand.
Mr. Balgobin's response was, "When you marry the right
woman, you are 'complete'.
If you marry the wrong woman, you are 'finished'.
And, if the right one catches you with the wrong one, you
are 'completely finished'".
