A Public Service Announcement From Dr. Funkenberry

People keep spelling lose like loose or loose like lose.  Let me help you out here by using it in a sentence;

I am going to lose my mind if someone makes that mistake again.

Man, your pants are fitting loose. Lost weight? 

Here are definitions

Lose: to miss from one’s possession or from a customary or supposed place/to suffer deprivation of : part with especially in an unforeseen or accidental manner

Loose: not rigidly fastened or securely attached/free from a state of confinement, restraint, or obligation/having relative freedom of movement

Seriously.  Not that hard and it is happening way too much everywhere.-Dr.FB

    Not so much a spelling error as a constant misuse of the term ‘PIN number’ – PIN is Personal Identification Number thereby rendering the use of the addional word ‘number’ completely unneccessary. It really, really bugs me and is misused everywhere!

    That will be all – Thank you 🙂

    (quite cathartic that!)
