I've had this problem for years where I mix up "are" and "our". It's not because I'm stupid and can't figure out the difference, but for some reason I always use the word "are" in place of "our". It drives me nuts, but I can't help it.
Anyone else have similar trouble words that they either use incorrectly or just can't spell right?

The only times I have trouble with words is remembering whether they have two R's, two S's, or two M's in them.

The one word that I never have trouble with but everyone seems to is "lose".
It absolutely infuriates me when people write "loose" instead of "lose".

You're not "loosing" control, you're losing control!

Even though I'm a American but I grew up in Europe. So stuff like this sometimes confuse me:

When to use "a" or "an"
"lose" or "loose"
"allright, alright, all right"

Occasionally I will mix up "then" with "than" or the other way around. I also do "alot" sometimes. Online Spellchecker is of great help though.

I just don't see much difference except for the extra o. I always tend to use 'loosing' though  Bluesad

I know I habitually spell 'weird' wierd.  Lookingup  I have to pay attention and really look at it to get it right.  I'm getting better at it though.

For quite a while I think I was using descent instead of decent.  "It was a pretty descent movie overall."  I finally figured it out.  As I get older and my brain turns to mush, I find myself looking up more and more words that have multiple spellings.  Let's see, there's two t's, two n's, or is it only one in this case?  Bah.  It seems totally random.  And if I don't use the spell checker, pretty much all my ing's are ign's.

I always type "form" when I mean "from."  And the spellchecker never catches it.  Drives me crazy when I catch it later.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
