Lose or loose?

As many of you know, a great many things annoy me. One of them is the utter lack of ability of many people to correctly spell the word ‘lose’.

It’s not frickin’ hard. There’s one ‘o’, not two. When you’re writing words such as ‘loser’ – to describe Manchester United when they 2-1 to Liverpool last month, or ‘losing’ when you’re describing how you’ll be ‘losing weight’ you just use one ‘o’.

Why do so many people write ‘loosing’ or ‘loose’?

Loose is a completely different word, for example: By Jove my dear, your twat is really loose, I could drive a bus through there.

See, it’s easy? Get it right and stop pissing me off.
