    Would you mind me / my opening the door?

    1.Would you mind me opening the door?
    2.Would you mind my opening the door?

    I wonder which sentence is the original or standard version and which one is the variety.

    Thanks.

    Re: Would you mind me / my opening the door?

    You might hear either form in American English. I prefer the second. Better yet, you can avoid the issue by asking Do you mind if I open the door?
    I am not a teacher.
