She and I (did what?)
Second Ranty post in over two years.
is only ever the subject of a sentence. It is NOT correct to use I
as the object. Ever. To figure out when to use I
, subtract the additional person and conjunction to see if it sounds ridiculous. eg
Who went to the store?
She and I went to the store.
I went to the store.
Ergo: I went to the store.

While on the topic of crap grammar:
- ie means, in other words - you can remember this because both begin with i
- eg means, for example - you can remember this because it begins with e
- gyro is pronounced jai-ro not yee-ro -you can remember because this you're not a tool:
: You mean a yee-ro?
: No, kid. If we were in Athens, I'd mean yee-ro
. But we're in a tiny hell-hole greasy spoon in Queens (turning back to counterman, "No offense, dude,"
). We don't say, "res-toe-ran
" for a "restaurant
," we don't say shed-du-el
. You don't say yee-ro-scope
, do you? Why, outta 880,000 words, the special exception for a meat sandwich? So please back up off my grill and lemme order my jai-ro
, in peace.
Sorry, I'm irritable - the weather's lousy, my girl's on a different continent, my right arm is killin me, I can't eat for the next 20 hours, I've not slept and my secretary just quit. Again
I want a whole wheat donut
What I'm gonna get, however, is a glass of tap water, a vitamin pill and two tabs of naproxen.
