Don't have a good end!!

Around this time of year, during the ימים נוראים, people are always full of good wishes and whatnot. Everyone's wishing everyone else a כתיבה וחתימה טובה. For example, when I got to work today, one of my co-workers wished me a "גמר טוב". That was very nice of her. Until I thought about what that really means. "גמר" means finish or end - like - לגמור. And טוב means good. So my co-worker just wished me a "Good End". Now I know there are some people out there who don't like other people and do mean to wish bad stuff on them. That's kinda weird....whatever....I'm not judging..... But I would like to think my co-worker does not want me to have a "good end". and I would like to think that most people don't want to wish that on their friends.
So I would like to correct everyone and wish everyone a גמר חתימה טובה and a שנה טובה.

Ha! You're awesome! Hope your new year STARTED well! I didn't say anything about an END! How nice, considerate and humble am I? See you soon! Have an easy fast.
