Here's a trick that you'd know if you had taught your students instead of sitting on the playground with them playing ... playground.

Remove the "kaz and."

Who ate the ice cream?


In that sentence, "ice cream" is the object, "Who" is the subject.  A complete sentence answer would be "Kaz and I ate the ice cream," not "Kaz and me ate the ice cream."  Because in the answer sentence, "Kaz and I" takes the place of "Who" as the subject.

Quote:
Me, not I

Who is in the poll?

Kaz and me.  Adding "kaz and" does not change whether it's a subject or an object.

You're welcome


Oh, my gosh.  I'm trying so hard to say that you're right about things, so you won't storm off sooner than I predicted.  But in this case I cannot.

The trick is not to remove, "Kaz and."  The trick is to complete the incomplete sentence:

"Who's in the pool?"

"Kaz and I" because:

Kaz and __ (are in the pool).

The correct word in the blank is "I," not "me."

Is your remark about me playing playground with kids instead of teaching them what you meant by a "normal insult?"

EDIT:

Actually, I can say you're right about something.  Your trick does work, but only after you complete the incomplete sentence.  So it is:

Kaz and I are in the pool," because,
"Kaz and I are am in the pool."

Yay!  You were right about that trick,  Kaz!

2nd EDIT:

Kaz, open a word document with grammar check turned on.  Type in, "Kaz and I are in the pool" and then "Kaz and me are in the pool."  No quotation marks when you type it.  See which one has an error indication.

You're an idiot.  You're sitting there expecting me to address your posts in five minutes?

No, sir.  The "whoops" is because I went to edit my post and accidentally replied instead.

Please read my edits so you can see that I said you were right.

Yes, absolutely.

What did your grammar checker tell you?  Same thing mine told me?

Are you sexually involved with your grammar checker? Isn't that incestuous?
