Today’s topic is the usage of “I” or “me” at the end of a sentence.

Which of the following sentences is correct?

A. Jane went to the concert with Lizzie and I.

B. Jane went to the concert with Lizzie and me.

The correct answer is B. If the noun and pronoun come after the verb, use “me.”

You would not say “Jane went to the concert with I,” right? That is a good way to check yourself. Remove the additional noun, and read your sentence. Does it make sense?

"Here's a picture of So-and-So and I". ARRRRGGHHH!
