"I" instead of "me"

By BobDHill ·
The one that totally drives me up the wall is when someone uses "I" when the word "me" is called for. You'd never say "He gave it to I," but it seems like everywhere you turn people are saying "He gave it to him and I." People, you don't change the word that you use just because the object of the sentence involves two people rather than one. "I" subject, "me" object.

Credit where it's due, please. That's my earwig, not Boxy's.

Oh, while I'm at it:

You take the good, you take the bad,
You take them both and there you have
The facts of life, the facts of life.

If you heard them from your brother,
Better check them with your mother,
Better get them right, the facts of life

When the world never seems
To be living up to your dreams
And suddenly you're finding out
The facts of life are all about
You
They're all about you!
