    Here's another.

    "I would of done that."

    It is NOT "would of."

    It is "would've." It's a contraction of "would have," as in, "I would have done that," which can be written as "I would've done that."

    There means a place. The problem is over there.

    Their indicates posession. It is their problem

    They're is a contraction of they are. They're going to have a problem.
