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 me and my friends 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. A 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.
