Writing Tip #101: I vs Me

Updated: Aug 5

The use of I versus me is used incorrectly more often than not. I won’t bore you with theory of subjects and objects. Instead, try this trick. When you say the following sentences, remove the second person and see if the sentence makes sense.

  • 'The boys and me are going to the pub'. Do you say 'Me is going to the pub'? No, therefore it’s 'the boys and I'.

  • 'Him and her are dating'. Would you say 'him is dating'? It should be 'He and she are dating'.

  • 'Us girls are going out to the mall'. It should be We.

  • 'My mom is giving Rob and I a ride home'. 'Mom is giving I a ride'? In this case, I should be me.
