Which is the appropriate sentence? Nothing gets past me. or Nothing gets passed me. ?

Pass/passed/passed is a verb.
Past in the sentence “Nothing gets past me” is a preposition. The preposition is correct.
Here’s an example with a difference sentence: Nothing gets into the house through this screen” – into is a preposition.
Hope that helps.

Past is correct. Passed is like saying ‘they passed me in the hall’ – it’s past tense.

Nothing gets past me. “Passed” is showing past tense, meaning that things can now get past you.
