The other day, I sent an email to someone saying: "Thank you for meeting with Jane and me earlier", which started a debate in the office, a lot of people arguing that the right way of saying it is "Thank you for meeting with Jane and I earlier".
So which option is correct? Or are both acceptable?
Much to our surprise, "me" is grammatically correct. It’s right because “Jane and me” are the objects of the sentence and if you try removing other people from it - Thank you for meeting with I earlier - it doesn't make any sense. For more examples, refer to the article below.
Do you use "me" or "I" in these sentences?
If it “sounds wrong” to your ear, that’s probably because you’ve been saying it and hearing it wrong all this time. Or you had things like “Jane and I” hammered into you so often the correct way now sounds, well, incorrect.
