I've seen both. Which is correct?

Me neither sounds like you're picking between two things.

Just choose me and that takes care of the confusion. Why say no when yes feels so good

I've always used "me neither".

They're both wrong, but "me either" is much more wrong because it doesn't contain a negative.

"I don't like Houston."

"I don't either" or "Neither do I" would be the response.

When I use both in the same sentence, I pronounce the first syllable differently for one of them.

I don't understand how people get confused about stuff like this. Who taught you how to talk, your inbred third cousin on some backwoods country dirt road?

Do you pronounce it "ee-ther" or "eye-ther"?

When I employ these two words in the same discussion I use both for irritation purposes.

Pretty sure there is an "understood do", like an "understood you" grammatical rule.

Use whichever makes you feel good. And then feel the hell out of it.

Your mom says the exact same thing. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree, it appears.
