• Not passing exams! Passed on! This person is no more! Ceased to be! Expired and gone to meet their maker! A stiff! Bereft of life, resting in peace! If you hadn't nailed them to the perch they'd be pushing up the daisies! Metabolic processes are now history! Off the twig! Kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible! THIS IS AN EX-PERSON!
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      Some Americans just say passed instead of passed on. It just doesn’t sound right and sounds like something else. It would make sense to say the person is deceased or something like that
    • Linda Joy
      There you go again telling others how they SHOULD behave!
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      I do not tell others how they should behave Linda. That’s just your perception of my words which you’re wrong. I’m not a control freak so I don’t tell others how they should behave. That’s just ridiculous.
  • Why are you discriminating against Americans? You know full well what it means you're just trolling.
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      I do not troll. That’s just what you think. I don’t discriminate Americans. There is a difference between pointing out what they say and how it sounds and not being discriminative.
  • it could mean the person they are talking about is dead. Its a common way of saying it in plenty of english speaking countrys its not disrectful . You know how happy I was when i heard Convicted paedophile Rolf Harris had passed away.
  • Because death is a topic that scares people we have come to use terms that are less blunt than "dead."
  • sometimes passed = died
