Another common speech error that I hear often and heard again today: using an adjective where an adverb was required, like "you have to move quick." That example should have been "you have to move quickly."
Heard today: "Show this with with less coins." That should have been "_fewer_ coins" rather than "_less_ coins." Some nouns can be counted (fewer), while others can be measured in units of mass (less).
While "... and I" is correct in cases where you and a number of people are doing something ("Sofia and I went to the store"), if you become the recipient in the sentence then you should use "... and me." As in: "Give the bag to Sofia and me." To remember: remove the names and the "and" and see if it still makes sense: "Give the bag to I" versus "Give the bag to me".
