'Xfinity 15' may work for you and I ...

It doesn't work for 'she and I'; but it does work for 'her and me'!

I'm sorry but that went right over my head, or thru it without even slowing down......

Dang. The humor only works if "thou hadst" paid attention in school ...

"She", "I": Subjective pronouns; actors.
"Her", "me": Objective pronouns; recipients of actions.

"She and I did"..."it was done to her and me".

Unlike first and third person personal pronouns (she/her, I/me), the second person personal pronoun (you) is not case-sensitive now. In older times it was (thou/thee: "Thou didst", "it was done to thee").

Oh, OK. I was being too literal and vaporlocked on 'Xfinity 15'.

In hindsight (and with your prodding), I now realize I should have used 'me and you'.........
