It's a hilarious post!

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

Don't forget:

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.

My trick for remembering affect versus effect.

Affect is A verb.

I have to think with this one sometimes. I learned something the other day helping my son with a report. He was writing a report on a monkey and its habitat. I thought it would be written a "monkey and it's habitat" but we looked it up and it is written correctly without the apostrophe. It is not something I commonly write down but I thought it was interesting knowledge.
