Today, my grandma went to get birthday gifts for my twin sister and me. She returned with 2 shirts that read "I see you've met the twins" in big letters across the chest. She gave them to us and said, "Isn't this cute? 'cause you're twins!" I then had to explain to her what the shirt was actually referring to. FML

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

lol @ "that's correct".

While it's nice to know you are aware of the "___ and I" rule, please do note that you should always check by removing the "___" part. As in you don't say "My mother went to the store with my parrot and I".

You are dumb... Ask any English teacher, it is "my twin sister and I"... That is what's called proper grammar, something it seems this generation obviously doesn't care too much about teaching anymore... Where are the smart people in this world? FYL #90

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.

139- Just because you know people with masters in English doesn't mean that YOU are good at it. Especially because you are wrong.... That's like saying if I know brain surgeons, I should be able to perform brain surgery

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
