Loose

<rant>

One of the things that drives me craziest is the incorrect usage of the word loose. How in the world did it become so common to use the word loose instead of lose? I see it all the time! In business documents, on the internet, in emails. It’s insane!

BTW, my second pet-peeve is probably the word nite. It’s not a word. It’s a cutesy abbreviation for a real word: night.
