Grammar: Lose

Candace has lost things almost everyday. She is not very organized and that’s why she has lost things. Somedays she has lost her car keys. Other days she has lost her make-up. She almost always finds things again, but until she finds them, she almost always paniks. If she doesn’t lose her mind it will be a miracle. After she finds things, though, she says, “I never lose things completely.”

But a few weeks ago, she realized that she had to get more organized, or she might have lost out to a better worker. Being disorganized makes her less efficient. Then other workers get work done faster. She might have lost her job, and then she would have lost everything.
