Should I say
he passed me by
he passed by me?
I think it’s passed me by, but I’m not sure.
You passed (me) by ~ you left me out of something.
- Happen without being noticed or fully experienced by someone
- sometimes I feel that life is passing me by
You passed by me ~ you went past me.
- something to go past.
- A car slowly passed by the front of the house.
Edit : The literal sense of something physically moving past you is more likely to be expressed using the "standard" word order – It passed by me. (@ FumbleFingers)
