Interested in Language
I don't know if this applies to English, too.
In German, it is bad to start something with "I".
Who will be at the party tonight?
I, Tom, and Mark will be at the party tonight.
Tom, Mark, and I will be at the party tonight.
But as said: This is for the German language!
What about English?
Doesn't it matter if you tell yourself first and then the rest?
Or is it better first to tell all the others and to tell yourself in the end?
In polite society, we English always put ourselves last.
We always say, "My wife and I...", "My brother and I" and so on.
However, in general conversation it's not uncommon for people to combine two mistakes: they use "me" when they should use "I" and they put "me" first.
"Who's coming to the party?"
"Well, me and Joe will be there."
"What was that all about?"
"Me and Mum were arguing about my girlfriend."
That's very common and wouldn't raise any eyebrows.
buggles (not a teacher)
Still sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
