Proper Use of "and I" or "and me"?

. Why do so many people not get this? First of all, the other person's name comes first, for instance it is not, "Me and John are going to the mall." Treat it as though the other people have more importance to be named first. For the right way, if you take away the other person's name,... show more .
Why do so many people not get this?

First of all, the other person's name comes first, for instance it is not, "Me and John are going to the mall." Treat it as though the other people have more importance to be named first.


For the right way, if you take away the other person's name, you can tell which to use:

"John and me are going to the mall."

"Me (am) going the the mall," that sounds wrong. So it would be "John and I are going to the mall." (I am going)

THEN,

For other way

"Do you want to go to the mall with John and I ?"

Take them away, "Do you want to go to the mall with I ?"

That sounds totally wrong, so it would be "Do you want to go to the mall with John and me?" (to the mall with me)

It drives me nuts that even characters on tv get this wrong.
Does it make sense to you now?

Update: By the way, the word "alot" doesn't exist. It should be "a lot".

And, yes, this was a question, WHY do people not understand it???
