Alan,
I was with ya until this point.   In my learnin here in the south we always put others first!   So, 'Would you like to go to the store with Johnny and me?'    :D
You might have a point there. I thought the original poster was concerned about people using 'me' instead of 'I' but rereading it I see they actually meant what you say here, that the other person should come first regardless of whether it's 'I' or 'me'.

No none taken, should have used better grammar.  :D
Well I was kind of mad at a company that builds massive sawmill buildings, malls etc, but will not build an in closed tarping shed for the truck drivers that go out of there on a daily bases, 45 below to 100 above they can careless about our welfare, but we need to all have our ppe on or else. Most times we need the loads reworked, as the securment of the load is impossible. Boy were the shipping ladies mad at me when they had to redo 2 loads (remove from my load to the other trailer)because of it. So I have informed my dispatch I will no longer darken their place of business.

For instance the sentence: "I went to the store" would turn into "Johnny and I went to the store."
But the sentence: "Would you like to go to the store with me" would turn into "Would you like to go to the store with me and Johnny?"

"Would you like to go to the store with Johnny and me?" is the gramatically correct sentence.

My only question is "what store", or is it "which store".

Andries it is always good to see you and your wife at the project each year. I had no idea we were being charmed. Now that you have let the cat out of the bag we will be on guard.

This got me curious because it never occurred to me whose name should come first. From what I found it's a matter of etiquette rather than grammar. The grammar police say it doesn't matter but the etiquette police say it does.

I can certainly be accused of not paying attention in grammar class but I never had an etiquette class so I guess that's my excuse. :)

I was afraid he'd get insulted if I called him Johnny-ann.

 I was taught to say " Do you want to come to the store with me" but when Johnny tagged along it became "Do you want to come to the store with Johnny and I". Language is constantly evolving, certain words, phrases, and structure become the norm and accepted speech. Still, I cringe when I hear somebody who should know better massacre the language.
