Yes! I wholeheartedly share your frustration! As a professional communicator, nothing rubs me the wrong way quite as much. I take that back. I’d love to see another grammar lesson on sentence fragments and punctuation.
I enjoyed your observation.
I am happy to see that I am not the only one concerned about proper grammar.
What is particularly irritating to me about “with Tom and I” is that it is educated people doing it. And, they do it ALL the time. I work for IBM. All the managers and executives say it all the time. And, on TV, you rarely hear it used correctly. I fear the objective pronoun in a compound object will fall out of use.
