When we use 'myself', it usually comes at the end of a sentence, and this is true for all the reflexive pronouns - myself, yourself, himself, herself, etc. But, in some cases, it can come in the middle of the sentence. For example: I hate myself for not feeding my dog on time.Me and my friends There is an easy test to apply when deciding if you should use ‘I’ or ‘me’ in a sentence. Look at these two sentences: - My father is taking my friends and me out to dinner. - My father is taking my friends and I out to dinner. In this case, the first sentence is correct. The test is to shorten the sentences: - My father is taking me out to dinner. - My father is taking I out to dinner. Now you can easily see that the first version is correct. You would not say: My father is taking I out to dinner. Therefore, you would not say: My father is taking my friends and I out to dinner. My friends and IA similar test can be applied with the following two sentences: - My friends and I are going out for dinner. - My friends and me are going out for dinner. Just shorten the sentences: - I am going out for dinner. - Me is going out for dinner. You can immediately see that the first version is correct: I am going out for dinner. Therefore, the following is correct: My friends and I are going out for dinner.

I've always been taught to put myself last when referring to myself in the same sentence as others but the usage of "me and..." seems to be everywhere these days. The misuse of the word "me" instead of "I" aside, is there some new rule I haven't heard of? Shouldn't we put ourselves last regardless of the "me"/"I" usage? Examples of "correct" usage: My friends and I went for some ice cream. Did you see my friends and me at the ice cream stand? Examples of "incorrect" usage: Me and my friends went for some ice cream. Did you see me and my friends at the ice cream stand? Note: I was also taught that the only person who could put themselves first was the queen.

The difference between "I and my friends" and "my friends and I" is purely a matter of courtesy - they are both grammatically correct. I would tend to stick to the latter though, as it's a) more common-place, b) considered more polite, c) seems to flow better. Indeed, your example of 'incorrect' usage is incorrect solely in that the first sentence uses the accusative (objective) pronoun me, when you actually need the nominative (subjective) pronoun 'I'. The second sentence of that example is correct, since the pronoun needs to be in the accusative, as the object. You seem to understand this though; this is just to clarify.
