    loose sleep ?

    Hello,

    Does anyone know what the meaning of Loose Sleep is? I saw a show on TV and caught that phrase in this sentence: "He doesn't loose sleep over me."

    Thanks a bunch!

    Re: loose sleep ?

    It is the American English spelling of "lose sleep". If you "don't lose (loose) sleep" over someone, it means you are not interested in them or their opinion.
