    Thumbs down I and me

    I would like for someone to tell me why "I" is incorrect when saying: Angela and I and instead we should say Angela and me.

    Re: I and me

    The "I" is correct when the two function as subject: "Angela and I were classmates." If they are a direct, indirect, or prepositional object, "me" is right: "They saw Angela and me together." "They told Angela and me to leave." "They talked about Angela and me." When the two are subject complement, the usage is mixed for native speakers: "The speakers were Angela and me / I." [I believe the "me" is far commoner with native speakers.]
