    how do you write "else's"

    as in:

    I am taking someone else's parking spot. does it need an apostrophe at all? elses, elses', else's, all come up with red squiggles for me.

    With apostrophe s. I don't know why you get the red squigglies with that.

    You write it the way you have written it. I don't get any red squiggles for that sentence in Word. Maybe there's something wrong with your spelling or language settings?
