"BEAR with me". "Bare with me" means to "get NEEKED with me" :D
My friend told me a funny story about on an Estate Agents it said 'We are currently under construction, please bare with us" , so soon a load of naked people were lined outside the door - no, i made that bit up

Its "Bear with me". The saying comes from what I believe was an old english term that eventually became bearer, as in paulbearer. It was a term that was meant to mean "Hang in with me". It meant to basically "work through the situation even though it sucks total a$$."

Bear with me a moment while I explain. It's good that you ask this as I sometimes have to think about it myself. The verb "to bear" has many meanings: 1. To carry, bring or take; 2. To show eg to bear the marks of suffering/success etc; 3. To produce (fruit or offspring) 4. To sustain, eg to bear the cost or weight of something, or to put up with it; 5a. To carry in thought eg "I'll bear that in mind"; 5b To carry arms ie weapons.

The noun bear is of course the animal

The verb "To bare" means to reveal eg "he bared his soul/ body" etc

The adjective "bare" means uncovered or plain: "these are the bare facts"


"I bear here in my hands that which I made with my bare hands"


However the sentence "I cannot bare this any longer and must now put on my clothes" would be correctly spelt either way.


(By now I expect you are wishing you hadn't asked)
