TIP: When to Use “Me” vs. “I”

Me vs. I

Is it “Mike and me” or “Mike and I”? Well, it depends on how you and Mike are involved. If you and Mike are the subject of the sentence, then you should use “I.” If you and Mike are the object, use “me.”

  •     Mike and I are going to a movie.
  •     Jenny is coming to a movie with Mike and me.

 An easy way to figure out whether you should use me or I is to drop the other person and see what looks right. You wouldn’t say “Me is going to a movie,” nor would you say “Jenny is coming to a movie with I.”
