Xero goes to Washington

Just had a whistle-stop tour of Washington DC. After life in California for a month, the East Coast moves at a different pace. Everyone’s in a suit and the business travelers are very efficient – everyone has a black rolling cabin bag, laptop and cell phone (BlackBerry – West Cost has iPhones). San Francisco has fog and sun – DC has thunder and rain. Quite intimidating being surrounded by powerhouse buildings. When you have to walk passed the White House to get to a meeting you know it’s all happening!

past or passed…

I always get that mixed up! Yes – I think you’re right – it should be “past” because the verb in the sentence is “walk”. “past” vs “passed” always gets me. Am going to leave it in there as a talking point…

Still, could have been worse, you could have had no comments and not known if we read it at all. Have a good weekend!

I think it’s neither past nor passed. My understanding is you walk pass a building. Stand to be corrected though. English is a complex beast. :)
