    People who use myself instead of me and yourself instead of you because they think it sounds more proper. They're not interchangeable!

    Yes! I think it's because they're scared to use "...and me", even when it's correct.

    I think this was explained earlier in the thread. You say "soandso and I went to the beach", because you would say "I went to the beach". You would say "Come to the beach with soandso and me", because you would say "Come to the beach with me".

    So if I said "bob and I are going to the shop" that is incorrect?

    No that's correct. Because you would say 'I am going to the shop'. But if you were asking 'would you like to come with me to the shop?' you would say 'would you like to come with Bob and me to the shop?'
