    Would you please do me two things?

    Hi,
    I saw someone write "Would you please do me two things?"
    Does this sentence sound ok?
    (I personally would say "would you please do two things for me?")
    Thanks a lot.

    What you personally would say sounds proper to me

    It is a common colloquial way of saying the same thing.
