Regular under namechange as I am hoping to use this thread as a weapon. wink

If you are saying that you find someone attractive, despite the fact that they have a face like a busted bag of spanners, do you say "I see past your looks" or "I see passed your looks"?

I will tell you which one I think is right when you tell me what you all think. wink flowers

I see past your looks.

Passed means 'went by' or 'overtook'.

Thank you, ladies. It is looking good for me so far.

Basically, I've caught the offender out and they are trying to tell me that either is acceptable. I say it is not acceptable. <gavel>

Is this a trick question??

Can we play a game of fill in the blank?

"I see xxxxxx* passed your looks"

*the ugliness radar mistakenly

Past - but don't EVER actually say it shock

FuckOffChunk Thu 13-Feb-14 12:02:39

No, no. Not a trick question. Someone out there is actually THIS stupid. grin

Past. No one ever wants to hear it though!

Good to see this attempt at at a name change is more successful than your last but your obsession with bodily functions gives you away.

Passed would never be right surely? <doubts self> *

FuckOffChunk Thu 13-Feb-14 12:09:04

Excuse me, wdyc? confused

Catsmamma Thu 13-Feb-14 12:09:15

passed is a verb and past is a ...ummm, welll....a errrrrr.... is NOT a verb.

past is describing the seeing. so passed would NEVER be right.

whichdidyouchoose Thu 13-Feb-14 12:22:16

You are excused "FuckOffChunk", what a spectacularly crude and vulgar name much like your other ones.

FuckOffChunk Thu 13-Feb-14 12:24:10

Ooooooooooooook. hmm confused
