I've been trying to be okay with it. Apparently the British use it all the time and thanks to the Internet it pops up everywhere and is now spoken by a huge number of people. Instead of simply accepting it I find my sphincter muscle tighten every time I read or hear it. In other words, it makes my ass twitch.

How could this happen? No, not my wincing sphincter, but the wide misuse of the word MYSELF.

WRONG: Give it to either Tom or myself.
RIGHT: Give it to either Tom or me.

WRONG: It was 10 minutes later when Joe and myself gained entry to the suspect's home.
RIGHT: It was 10 minutes later when Joe and I gained entry to the suspect's home.

Judgy McJudgerton that I am, EVERY time I read or hear this misuse, my brain automatically decides the person misusing the word is stupid.

Like I need another reason to feel many people are stupid!
