    It's a hilarious post!

    Someone do "lose" vs. "loose" and "advice" vs. "advise."

    As a golfer, I was hoping someone would remember to post the golf definition of caddy.

    If I had guess, lose vs loose (as it relates to a license) is the most "mixed up" pair of words on this site.

    Close, but my vote goes to 'counsel' and 'council'.

    Another one = affect vs effect. I have to think when I use these.

    Lie vs lay vs lain vs laid - forget about it. NO clue. My albatross!

    Improperly placed apostrophes drive me bonkers. Use them for contractions and to imply possession....DO NOT use them when pluralizing!!!!!

    I was tasked to revise an SOP the other day that had "RN's" and "LPN's" all over the place. I felt my lip curl reflexively at the sight of such an apostrophic disaster.
