Two Words -- No Easy Definition

Postby Ling2 » Fri, 01 Jul 2011 12:18 pm

No English dictionary has been able to explain the difference between the two words COMPLETE and FINISHED, in a way that's easy to understand.

Some people say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. I beg to differ because, there is.....

When you marry the right woman, you are "COMPLETE."

And when you marry the wrong one, you are "FINISHED!"

And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are “COMPLETELY FINISHED"

i think finish is used more often after events mobile spy that move at a high pace, while complete is for more drawn out procedures.
or maybe im just imagining it :roll:
