He and I or he and me?

Although people do commonly say "he/she and I" and correct others who say "he/she and me", the way to determine which is correct is whether you would say I or me without the "he/she and". For instance, the sentence: "he and I went to the shops today" is correct, since it is correct to say "I went to the shops today" and not "Me went to the shops today." Another example is "Will you tell him and me why?" Notice how you also use him/her and not he/she in the latter example.
