    to lose vs to miss

    Hi,
    When talking about no longer having a right I used to have before, should I say "I lost my right of..." or "I missed my right of..."?
    Thanks,
    JC

    Re: to lose vs to miss

    One has a "right to"

    I lost my right to park in that spot.

    or

    "privilege of"

    I lost the privilege of using the pool for free.
