Past vs Passed

chatI just had a discussion with other authors in LinkedIn and had to share the story with you readers. Passed vs past and the correct usage.

My memory failed me when trying to remember back in grade school on the usage and I couldn’t find more information on proper usage in my College reference books to continue the conversation. However, a LinkedIn member did share a site with me because I was using “passed” wrong. I thought I would share the site, posted at the end of my story. Here is an example in reference to the discussion: He passed by me. He walked past me. I wrote “he walked passed me”. That was what I remembered as the proper way to use pass and that Canadians only used past in reference to in the past time.

The joys of discussions. Learning and keeping an open mind. Anyone know another site that shares a different opinion please leave a comment.
