失去

shīqù - to lose

I picked this word because when I looked at my presentation today, I found that I had lost all my images, even on the back-up copies of the presentation. The boxes where still there, but they appeared blank. I spent the rest of the day adding them back and taking precautions to avoid the same thing happening again.

他因为玩忽职守而失去工作,罪有应得。
It served him right to lose that job, because he neglected it.
