Grammar Rant

"I" verses "me"...How to choose?
When listing yourself with someone else, take out the other person's name to see which one fits the sentence.
For example: "Ernie and I danced with the pigeons yesterday" works as "I danced with the pigeons yesterday" but doesn't work as "me danced with the pigeons yesterday".

However, it is not always correct to replace "me" with "I".
For example: A caption under a photograph that reads "Bert and I, waiting for the train" doesn't work when it is "I, waiting for the train" but does when it's "Me, waiting for the train" (note the important use of comma after the noun).

Make sense? Good. Now do it!

Ah...today's soapbox. Some days I wish I'd never learned grammar. It would be much easier to wander through a day blissfully unaware of the demise of the English language. Alas. ;)

真正仁慈的人,會忘記他們做過的善行,他們全心投入現在的工作,過去的事已被遺忘。 ..................................................
