Anonymous:Is I am finished gramatically correct?
What is the difference between I am finished and I have finished?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
In real life, no one will bat an eyelash if you say "I'm finished" (or "I'm done").

Correct usage is "I have finished."
"I am finished" means "I am done for. I am about to die."
And while I have said on several occasions, "I'm done," I have no illusion that this is correct usage--it's just colloquial.
People are waiting to help.
