I Think I’m Going to Loose My Mind!
WTF internet? When did lose become loose? Am I missing something here? Every where I look, I see people who freely substitute the word “loose” for the word “lose”. Such as “OMG, I think my team is going to loose this game!” In case everyone has forgotten, here’s a reminder of how to use these two very different words.
Loose -“The fucking dog is loose again!”
Lose – “If I see one more fucking misuse of the word loose, I’m going to lose my shit!”
See the difference? These two words are in no way interchangeable. I don’t mean to be a grammar nazi here, but Jesus Christ people, you’re better than that. At least I think you’re better than that. Let’s review one more time:
Loose – “Your grasp of the English language has apparently been set loose.”
Lose – “Did you lose your grasp of the English language?”
Could we please correct this before I LOSE all of my faith in humanity?
