30 Bananas a Day!

So, this is extremely nit-picky of me, but I have been seeing it non-stop the past few weeks... Why, oh why, do people write "loose" instead of "lose"? Does this drive anyone else bonkers? 

Loose is what your clothing will be after you lose 5 pounds.

 

Just had to get that out of my system :P

 

 

*EDIT*

I am so sorry if this offended anyone! This is absolutely not directed at anyone who speaks English as something other than their first language. Even for those who do, I realize, as someone kindly pointed out, that it is nothing more than ego that makes me irritated at something as simple as a grammatical/spelling error. I'm working on that :) Thank you for the replies everyone, they helped me look at things differently, and reminded me that I need to choose my words and comments more carefully!

Glad someone here said it.
Glad it could help, but my irritation is definitely not directed at people whose second language is English!

30 Bananas A Day is an international forum with many of our members who speak English as a second language and we respect everyone's various abilities. 

We are also a risk free sharing and learning environment, and are here to provide support to people who want to follow a low fat raw vegan lifestyle and or natural health and healing. 

Thanks from the 30BaD Team

Of course, and I am happy it is! I didn't mean to cause any offense. This was not directed at people who speak English as a second language, and I apologize for not making that clear in my original post.

I understand and thanks for clarifying.  Peace, PK
some of us dont have english a 1 language so i dont think we should judge, but i do think google translator is pretty cool :P
If English is not your first language, please ignore this post! It was my error to not make it clear that I was not directing this post at anyone whose first language is not English. I completely understand the difficulties of trying to learn another language, especially English, with all its silly rules and strange spellings!
i don't think anyone should be using the word 'lose' when it comes to weight in general...that would be implying that we are expecting it to show up again...i think the term release is more appropriate ;)
+1

well said

 

Good point! Lose is negative, and release is more neutral... Why would one want to work to lose something? :)
a good idea would be to start learning foreign languages. that way you'll have more compassion and patience :)
