Something I keep seeing over and over is 'loose' in place of 'lose' and it drives me crazy!
That one bugs me too. Unfortunately it's a pretty common misspelling.
When you say loose and lose are you talking about...
loose - not rigidly fastened or securely attached b (1) : having worked partly free from attachments <a loose tooth> (2) : having relative freedom of movement c : produced freely and accompanied by raising of mucus <a loose cough> d : not tight-fitting
lose - to be unsuccessful in retaining possession of; mislay: He's always losing his car keys.
Because I wonder, sometimes, if people use lose as in lost when they should use loose?
