No dictionary has ever been able to define the difference between ‘Complete’ and ‘Finished.’
However, in a linguistic conference, held in London England, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clever winner.
Difference between Complete and Finished
His final challenge was this. Some say there is no difference between ‘Complete’ and ‘Finished.’ Please explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand.
His response was: When you marry the right woman, you are ‘Complete.’ If you marry the wrong woman, you are ‘Finished.’ And , when the right woman catches you with the wrong woman, you are ‘Completely Finished.’
His answer received a five minute standing ovation
