I want to talk about pronouns.
Pronoun usage in daily conversation has gone straight down the crapper. And I mean it. I'm no grammarian myself, but I know when to say 'so-and-so and I' or 'so-and-so and me'. This is only partially because of grade school teachers. Mostly it is because of my mother, who actually is a grammarian.
Since when has the usage of 'so-and-so and I' in place of the proper 'so-and-so and me' become so socially, conversationally acceptable? It's deplorable. Some people may not care, but it makes my skin crawl. I physically shudder and sometimes condescendingly roll my eyes and shake my head if I temporarily forget myself in public.
Par exemple: Hugo gave the tickets to Penelope and I. Wrong! Hugo gave the tickets to Penelope and ME. (It is also correct to say Penelope and I got the tickets.)
This will be a fun weekend for Sylvester and I. Wrong again. This will be a fun weekend for Sylvester and ME. (It is also correct to say Sylvester and I will have a fun weekend.)
Please people, let's get it right! Stop embarrassing yourselves. You are smarter than this.
(Just in case you don't believe me or think I need to re-take the third grade, here is a website to help you hone your pronoun-creating skills.)
