This situation occurred to my friends and I . .
The store had a variety of items that him and his fiance could purchase . . .I could overlook one pronoun offense, but the second one a few lines later meant that he was away the day that they taught objective pronouns in grade school.
Being in Canada, I also considered that either his friend was in a gay marriage (fiancé) or he didn't know how to spell fiancée. But back to the pronouns:
Use "me" when the pronoun is the object of a verb.
"Give me the vodka."
Use "me" when the pronoun is the object of a preposition.
"He gave the vodka to me."It doesn't matter if he gave the vodka to you and a half a dozen of your friends. You still use the objective case (me).
Circle the correct pronoun:
- Give (me, I) and my fiancée the present.
- This machete was given to my friends and (me, I).
- My friends and (me, I) gave a casket full of machetes to the bride and groom.
- The store had several wedding rings that (him, he) and his boyfriend could admire.
- Proofread specifically for objective pronouns before you send your letter of intent to the Graduate Studies Department and (me, I), providing you want to write better, dammit.
Answers: me, me, I, he, me
