    Re: give me or pass me and what's the difference?

    Pass implies that you just need someone to hand the object to you; you can not reach it so you need someone to help pass it along to you. For example, if you are sitting at a large dinner table with 10 people and you need the salt which is located at the other end of the table, you would say: "Please pass me the salt." This is a polite format.

    Please let me know if this helps clarify things!
