    Real estate agents are terrible for this one. I've rarely seen it spelt correctly.

    They're also compulsive misusers of "comprise".

    Apostrophes generally denote possession or omission. So the apostrophe in "my mum's cat" shows the cat belongs to my mum, while the apostrophe in "my mum's leaving now" shows there's a missing letter ("mum is" becomes mum's).
