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.
