    me neither

    Hello,

    TOM: Did she tell you what's inside?
    MARRY:Yes, she did.

    TOM:What about you Jack? Did she tell you what's inside?

    JACK:Me too (so did I)

    Does 'me too (so did I)' mean that she told Jack, too what's inside?

    Re: me neither

    Jack's reply is not an appropriate response to the question.

    Your thread title is puzzling, too.

    No. The only appropriate responses to both of the questions "Did she tell you what's inside?" would be some variant on "Yes, she did" or "No, she didn't".

    If Tom's second question didn't appear, then Jack might be able to say it.

    Tom: Did she tell you what's inside?
    Mary: Yes, she did.
    Jack: Me too.

    Here, Jack's statement is like a shortened form of "She told me what's inside too".
