Complete or Finished or Completely Finished?

LESSON:  Is it “complete”, “finished”, or “completely finished”?

No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between these two words – “Complete” or “Finished”. In a recent linguistic competition held in London and attended by, supposedly, the best in the world, Samdar Balgobin, a Guyanese man, was the clear winner with a standing ovation which lasted over 5 minutes.

The final question was: ‘How do you 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. When you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!”

He won a trip around the world and a case of 25-year-old Scotch.

Where to Have Lunch

September 2021.  A good friend of my husband Bryan sent this, and I know that you will all love it.  (Psst, this is the one I wrote about to the chat group.)  Cheers from Liz Webfoot: 

A group of friends, all turning 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch……finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because the waitresses had big breasts and wore mini-skirts……. 

Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch……..finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because the waitresses were attractive and the food and service was good….. 

Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch….finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they could dine in peace and quiet with no loud music, and it was good value for money……

Ten years later, at age 70, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch……finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they welcomed the older generation and gave them a 10% discount….. 

Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed again where they should meet for lunch…..finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they had never been there before………
