    Yes, I don't want to lost my bus

    Hello.

    Is the following grammatically correct?

    "Yes, I don't want to lost my bus."

    Context: Answer to the question

    Are you in a hurry?

    Thanks.

    Yes, because I don't want to miss the bus.

    Re: Yes, I don't want to lost my bus

    No, it's not grammatically correct. After "I don't/didn't want to", you need to use the bare infinitive, not the simple past. We don't "lose the bus". As Matthew said, we "miss the bus".

    - Are you in a hurry?
    - Yes, because I don't want to miss my bus.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
