CAUSATIVE VERBS: HAVE/GET SOMETHING DONE
Have something done and Get something done are both used to refer to actions which are done for
the subject rather than by the subject. Causative verbs are used instead of passive verbs to show that
the subject causes the action to be done.
1. Have something done

2. Get something done
