Are you making a pass at me?

Greetings! I know it's been a while, but here's a little something to give you a chuckle:

I was called to the table and saw the auction had gone:

W
N
E
S
1
P
1
X
?

Before North had a chance to bid, East had passed. I told South he could accept the pass, in which case it would be his turn to call. Or, he could not accept it and East will have to pass at his next turn. South wanted to make sure: "If I don't accept the pass out of turn, East willhaveto pass?" I told him, yes, he would, so South said he didn't accept it.

Now the auction went back to North, who passed. East passed and South, rather triumphantly, bid 2! This went all pass and I checked later to find out they had made 4.
