"Loose it from" is it correct or not?

Hi all,

when the sandwich is covered and sealed with a plastic bag, and someone took it out from the plastic bag, can you say to him
"Why did you loose it from the plastic bag?"

I searched the verb "loose" in the internet, and it means "set free, release" but I'm not sure if it can be used that situation or not?

Thanks,

@The Programmer,
Use "remove" or "take it out"

Why did you remove it from the bag?

Why did you take it out of the bag?

You can "loose" or release or set free a living creature or person that wants to be free of whatever confinement or restriction it was under, and will immediately leave it. You cannot "loose" an inanimate object like a sandwich.

@The Programmer,
There may be some confusion over using 'lose' and 'loose'. However, that being said, in either/neither circumstance, should it be used here.

'Remove it from' is most appropriate. "Why did you remove it from the plastic bag?"

@dalehileman,
Collo is not a word.

This is an english language help thread.

I take it that you have liked to shorten people names for quite a long time, even when repeatedly requested not to, and similarly, to shorten regular words. I also take it you think this is somehow cute. It is not cute on a language thread, ok elsewhere. I understand word play, but not on an english as a second (or more) language thread.

I get it you are elderly. So am I. Stop it.

Thanks for reply, I thought you could set the sandwich free from its plastic bag :/ as it was like a hostage in the plastic bag and you set it free!

@The Programmer,
That's worth a smile, and I can imagine being used that way as humor, but unless you are very familiar with the language, listen to tes and just remove it.

@The Programmer,
If that is the case, then you might say "release it from the plastic bag".

You're the first with the courage to so label it. Early on I had so inquired still without receiving a single satisfactory response (alliteration intended, another terrible habit but such fun, forgive)

Oh I know, terrible habit

No but so far I've saved 5,732, 911 keystrokes

Give or take 1 or 2

It is not cute on a language thread, ok elsewhere.

I've duly noted in a 2x2 Post-It, "Tes, Oss

No abbrs". The gap for future adds

Reasoning: In fact I had hoped gradually to introduce at a2k "collo" and esp "esp " if not "q"

Sure, if you're speaking imaginatively and nonsensically, like in the "Hey Diddle Diddle" nursery rhyme.

Otherwise, no.

I believe dahileman has mentioned his early stage Alzheimers in various posts.

@Tes yeux noirs,
I didn't intend to offend Dahileman; I was joshing him. I quite enjoy his little comments.

I was using "loose" with an inanimate object - something someone said could not be done.

Sorry, don't loosen your tie over this one.
