Default 2005 F150 5.4 spark plug troubles....

I just bought a 2005 Lariat 5.4 with 190,000kms and it has pushed the spark plug out of the #4 cylinder twice in the last 2 weeks, the shop said the threads aren't stripped and they switched plugs so it isnt the spark plug either.
Any ideas what might be going on? Maybe the mechanic isnt tightening the spark plug up tight enough or would there be any other reasons that might be happening?
Any help would be great...

Is he antisiezing the threads? Are they tourqueing down the plugs to the correct spec?

Make sure they are not Autolite HT 15 plugs, I and many others have had lots of trouble with them.
