Is it wrong if I change "me and Finn" to "I and Finn"?
In this case, "me and Finn" is actually grammatically incorrect, however, "I and Finn" is also grammatically incorrect. Here the correct form should be "Finn and I". This is because there is a rule in English that when you are listing yourself in a sentence, you should always be listed last since it is polite. The "I" form of the pronoun is also the most grammatically correct form here because it is taken from the subject of a sentence, for example, "I did" something. It would be incorrect to say "me did" something, so in this case "I" is the correct form to use. However, many English speakers, especially children get the grammar wrong and say "me and ___" very often. Although it is technically incorrect grammar, it is common to use this form. Here's some examples using the correct form of this grammar: Ex: She and I went to the store earlier. Ex: He and and I are brothers.
