We've all been put out by this whole thing,right? I figure we owe it to ourselves to salvage a little dignity.Now, me and Fenster heard about a little job.
American movie: The Unusual Suspects

Is it usual for native speakers say "me and someone did something", instead of "I and Fenster heard about" ?

Thank you!

    Yes. Most people say 'Me and Fenster did it', or 'Fenster and me did it'. No-one says (or writes) 'I and Fenster did it'. Some people, including most of the people who will answer you on this forum, say 'Fenster and I did it', in that order, and we recommend you say and write this. But it is not how most people speak.

    It's common, colloquial, ungrammatical English. The grammatical version is not "I and Fenster heard about a little job." it is "Fenster and I heard about a little job."
