Proper use of me vs. I?
Which is correct? Dave and me? or Dave and I?
Really ....... Dave and I would never put ME in front of US. So, when I am discussing US, I always place ME (whoops I) at the end, if forno other reason, than because I am polite, and always let others enter the door (of conversation or otherwise) first.
"I" is the subject of a sentence. "Me" is the object of a sentence. Don Bobbitt is correct on placing "I" and "me" after any other person(s) in a sentence.
Sentence(1)... "Dave and I went to the store." When in doubt about using "I" or "me" in sentences like sentence (1), leave "Dave" out of it and you will see that the sentence should say "I went to the store", not "Me went to the store". This is because "Dave and I" are the subject(s) of sentence (1).
Sentence (2)..."Mom sent my brother and me to the store". When in doubt about using "me" or "I" in sentences like sentence (2), leave "my brother" out of it and the sentence should read "Mom sent me to the store", not "Mom sent I to the store". This is because "Mom" is the subject of sentence (2).
Hope this little English usage tip helps.
