So insensitive, but SO funny
“Me and her buy her milk at the same market.”
“Me and her? Surely you meant to say ‘She and I’.”
“Yes, of course.”
“The trick is to take the other person out the sentence to see if it makes sense. ‘Me buy milk’? I think not. ‘I buy milk’. You see?”
Very insensitive. Very funny. AND ALSO VERY INFORMATIVE.
(I always use the I/me rule.)
And yes, I aware that this is the second [grammar] Nazi-related Proof (v.) post. But in my defence, me didn’t invent the term. Neither did Encyclopædia Dramatica… but it is defined there so very well:
Grammar Nazi is a term given to one who incessantly corrects the spelling/grammar/usage of others. Everyone hates Grammar Nazis because they are the ultimate lulz killers.
(Do yourself a favour and read the whole thing. Again, it’s admittedly offensive, but terribly HILARIOUS).
