Regarding myself

Drawing: She says "Kiss myself" - He doesn't know what to make of that.

Okay, so I have to say something about silly things people say, like "myself".

Joe, Nancy and myself drove to the store.

Doesn't that just sound weird? Yet I year people say crap like this all the time. I think they do it because they're lost as to whether to say "I" or "me" in a sentence. Of course, it should be:

Joe, Nancy and I drove to the store.

It's just a longer version of:

I drove to the store.

Switch it around, though, and people get confused.

Joe drove Nancy and myself to the store.

Again, that's just weird! It should be:

Joe drove Nancy and me to the store.

Why? Because it's just a longer version of:

Joe drove me to the store.

You know, the rule is very simple: If it works for the singular, it works for the plural.

I drove to the store.

Joe, Nancy and I drove to the store.

Joe drove Nancy and me to the store.
