I just heard somebody saying: "Leave a bit more space between You and I!"
With my German background it totally sounds wrong to me.
For example I would say: "You and I are going on a trip tomorrow."
But I would say: "Leave a bit more space between You and Me!"
What is right and what is wrong? It seems like people use "You and I" and "You and Me" however they want.
Some people seem to think that between you and I is an example of high style. It isn't, and it drives many people crazy.
It irritates the hell out of me.
Thank you for all your replies but I'm still not sure what is right and wrong.
So is "between you and I" right or just acceptable or totally wrong?
It is totally wrong to use "between you and I."
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.
