Homonym Hump Day - Discreet or Discrete?

Sometimes I think one of the main joys of being an author is the opportunity to learn new things. In Drive Me Home , Eric Moss takes a job as a limousine driver. But does he work for Discreet Limousine? Or Discrete Limousine? 

The totally different definitions for this homonym found at Vocabulary.com made for an easy choice between the two words. The hard part was remembering to spell it correctly throughout manuscript. Thank goodness for "find and replace".  Are there two words you know mean different things, but you still get the spelling's confused?
