Thanks for supporting my post lambjam! I know - s's is correct. It came up a few years ago at school when I was proof reading the school report cards. I noticed the default setting was -'s and I was worried we were sending out grammatically incorrect reports for names ending in s, so we checked. In 2011, it's correct
Now, I need a laugh, so I'll check out the funny link!

This is a great post to ask a question that I've wanted to know for a while now (I'm sorry if this has already been spoken about but I'm not going to read 68 pages)
When do I need to use "me" and when do I use "I"?
I was taught at school that whenever I was talking about myself in a sentence which had another person's name to refer to myself as "I". However, I once saw this on a quiz show and what I have always been sure was correct is actually incorrect.
I'm not sure what the exact rules were (that's what I was hoping you ladies would know) but in some cases it is not always correct to say "I".
P.S. I take no responsibility for any incorrect words or grammar in this post

What you were taught is wrong sorry to say! You use whatever you would use if you were the only person in the sentence.
Eg: Mark and I went to the shop. I went to the shop.
The house belongs to my husband and me. The house belongs to me.
Does that help?

So in the example "John took Mary and I to the movies" you could reverse "Mary" and "I" and it would become "John took I and Mary to the movies", which is clearly incorrect.
Alternatively you can just remove "Mary" and see which makes sense. "John took I to the movies" is again clearly incorrect. So the correct sentence is "John took Mary and me to the movies".
Hope that makes sense, am typing on phone while putting wriggling, giggling child to sleep...
