Are people going to begin using "myself" in a sentence correctly again, or am I doomed to hear the incorrect crappy usage for the rest of my life?

Examples:

If we take a prescriptivist English grammar, we say it is incorrect to say things such as, "myself and Bob will be meeting you."
Or
"Please contact myself if you have any questions."
Or
"Myself and my boyfriend have been together 3 years."

For all these examples the correct word to use is "me." Yes, ME. No need for a reflexive! You're* all making me crazy!

* The people that use "myself" too much.
