It's not actually correct. The test to see is to take out the other person. My grandma went to get my twin sister and i a birthday gift. if you take it out My grandma went to get I a birthay gift. That's not proper, so it should be my sister and me. but still. It's not a YDI, bad grammar doesn't mean you deserve to be fml
it depends on the usage. "my twin sister and I went to the store" is correct, but not the way it was used in the FML. take out the other person, use me or I as you normally would, then add the other person back in. it may sound funny some times but it is correct. this is one of my pet peeves, people trying to be "overly correct" and really having no idea what they are doing.
@147, Way to make yourself look like the biggest moron ever. It should be "My twin sister and me" because it is the object of the sentence. You only use "My twin sister and I" when it is the subject. The subject here is the grandma. "My grandma went to get I a birthday gift" is grammatically incorrect. I love how people, like you, memorize the "____ and I" rule and think they are proficient in grammar. Don't be a hypocrite.
And your life is fucked because.....? It's cute your grandma thought it would be nice. Don't wear the shirt if you don't want to. Problem solved. Moving on to the next crappy FML
