I'm just looking up birthday cakes for DD and on one of the bakery sites they sell sandwhiches. It's not just spelled like that once, but twice . I love their cakes (got our wedding cake there) but now I'm not sure I can bring myself to use them lol!

I have a question. I have been told off for saying "Would you like to come with me?" The correct way I should have said this is apparently "Would you like to come with?"
My question is... really? No "me" added on?
BTW, people in the USA HATED me saying "come with me" or "we are going to the shops, would you like to come with us?"
They wanted me to say "would you like to come with?" or "we are going to the shops, will you come with?"
I always waited for the end of the sentence to be finished! lol. So all the smarties in this thread, tell me the correct way to say it!

“as I feel that the skills and knowledge shared amongst colleagues can help with the overall work flow…”
I am not good at writing though, so I will let an expert answer you. I would just use either of my options as it flows better in my mind, your option seems a little confusing. I don't know what the right way to write that is, so I will look forward to reading the right way when some one else answers Just thought that I would try hehe.

Ok so my DH has a friend he went to Uni with many years ago who is highly educated and very accomplished, as is his wife. They have just got back to Australia after she has finished a stint as an English Professor at Cambridge (she is younger than me!) and we went over there this morning.
She has now got a post at UNSW as a creative writing lecturer and she mentioned that she is doing a few book reviews at the moment. I asked her who she reviews for (thinking something small and local) and she replied `The Australian and The Sydney Morning Herald. mostly'.
Anyway, when I got home I googled her so I could read some of her reviews, and it turns out that she's also a bloody award-winning published novelist! To say I am amazed is an understatement. I've only just met them as they've been overseas but DH has known them for years and we didn't know. She is SO modest.
Anyway, there is a point to this. We were having a chat about grammar and she is saying she's hopeless at it! I didn't believe her at all .... but she said she had an oral exam when she was studying and they asked her to describe a split infinitive and she managed to get out of it by saying it wasn't really related to the topic of her PhD and so she didn't really think it was a relevant question.
I loved that she is so accomplished and yet so honest.

Out of interest, how many people in this thread were given formal grammar instruction in high school? I had the occasional teacher who would put aside a couple of weeks to teach us a little despite it not being part of the curriculum; however anything I know has been learnt either by rote or through research I've done by myself in the years since leaving school.

It is definitely:
Would you like to come with me?
If I was asked, "would you like to come with?" I would have to ask, "come with whom?" (Who... whom??? That's one I always mess up! Lol).
