What sucks, Part 2

Clicking on links in a pal's blog, reading her pals' blogs, and finding two flagrant misuses of the nominative voice, one right after the other.

People, it's "with ME," not "with I." It's "for ME," not "for I." It's "to ME," not "to I."

And it doesn't matter how many other people are involved. I don't want to click on your blog and read "When we moved in next door, Ariel Sharon came over with a case of Moet and Chandon and a six-pack of Tab for Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, and I."

Got that?

Now cut it out right now, or me will implode with rage.

  1. Thank you thank you thank you. That makes me crazy, too. When people are speaking and say that, I literally have to bite my tongue to keep from correcting them, and a lot of times, I correct them anyway.

    Great blog. Much fun to read.
