Is there a simple rule for determining when to use "myself and ..." versus "david and myself"?
The best rule to remember for using myself correctly is to never use it when I or me can be used.
"David and myself will be arriving at eight o'clock."
"She ruined the party for myself and everyone else.
"David and I will be arriving at eight o'clock."
"She ruined the party for me and everyone else."
Otherwise, when the usage is truly reflexive, either way will do:
I bought a new house for myself and my family.
I bought a new house for my family and myself.
It just depends on where you want the emphasis.
