Don't ya just love 'em? Ah, there's nothing like the English language to keep you on your toes(homophone).
My personal favorite bear/bare. Does this one confuse you? It does me.
I was writing an email and started to say bear with me. Then decided nope that didn't look right (there's another one) so I typed bare with me. No that didn't look right, so I plugged it into google. A good thing I did. If I'd left it bare with me, I would have basically been saying get naked with me. Hmm....wouldn't have been appropriate in this particular e mail.
The English language is sprinkled with them. I've listed a few below.

Which homophones give you grief?
