me either/me neither
Inside a longer sentence, “me either” can be perfectly legitimate: “whole-wheat pie crust doesn’t appeal to me either.” But by itself, meaning “neither do I,” in reply to a previous negative statement, it has to be “me neither”: “I don’t like whole-wheat pie crust.” “Me neither.”
