There - subject
you/me - direct object

Should be in objective case and not subjective case; therefore it is "you and me" and not "you and I".

Sorry what you do is remove the other subject and see if it works grammatically. There is nothing wrong with what you or me wrote becomes there is nothing wrong with what me wrote. So unless you are the cookie monster or the Hulk you should have used I.

"There is nothing wrong with what me wrote".

Does this sound right to you?

RE: smh... this is a reason why teenagers terrify me.
But... you know what.

From a purely mechanical standpoint it should be "me" because of its position in the sentence; however, it's incorrect English even though it follows the rules.

I hate this stupid language.

Wrong. In that sentence it is the phrase that is the object. For the phrase to be grammatically correct, it must be "you or I" as they are the subjects within that clause. Drinking Beverage
